Scottish Terrier / Shih Tzu Mixed Breed Dogs

Information and Pictures

Top down view of a black with white Sco-Shi puppy that is laying on a tan carpet looking up.

"Poppie is a very happy, outgoing dog. He is a 3-month-old puppy in this picture. His mother is a Shih Tzu and father is a Scottish Terrier. He loves his walks and loves to play with the children."


The Sco-Shiis not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Scottie and the Shih Tzu. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
