Shih Tzu-Coton de Tulear

Meet our Shih Tzu/Coton de Tulear cross puppies! One of the fantastic qualities of these wonderful companions is their non shedding coats which are a gentle flowing coat of ultra soft waves which are generally kept relatively short, “puppy cut” style, but can also be left long. This mix is in the family of the Teddy Bear puppies, with just a bit more class. They have a wonderful sense of playfulness & a great love of toys as the Cotons do as well as a snuggly side from both sides. They are friendly, highly social, kid friendly, sturdy, calm dog which are truly a great mix. You will enjoy the length of nose that the Coton brings to the mix as the Teddy Bears will not have the snort & sinus problems that some Shih Tzus can. Their noses and faces are not extremely long on the other hand either, giving them a plump, full teddy bear appearance.

Our parents are well within the breed standards for weight and height. Our Shih Tzu adults are 9-11 pounds and stand 8-10 inches at the shoulder. They have a lifespan of 10-16 years. Coton de Tulears are 9.5 to 13 inches at the withers and have a weight of less than 18 pounds. Many of ours are in the 13-14 pound range. These dogs do not shed and have low dander, therefore are great for people with allergies.Cotons have a lifespan of 12-16 years. 

Coton de Tulear/Shih Tzu Teddy Bears do not shed. They average 13-14 pounds as adults.

Mom and Dad are pictures of health, always doing well on their yearly health exams – never needing anything other than routine care in between check ups. Of course we would expect their babies to follow suit. I am sure you would be pleased with them.

We do not sell puppies to pet stores, brokers or breeders. Only to pet homes such as yours and mine!

All puppies are current on dewormings and vaccinations. They each have an AVID microchip inserted between the shoulder blades for positive identification.
