SO THE BIG QUESTION IS
THIS LITTLE DOG HAS MORE NAMES THEN ANYTHING OR PERSON I HAVE EVER KNOWN. ONE NAME EVEN HAS A COPY WRITE. IT IS THE FIRST BREED OF DOG TO RECEIVE A COPY WRITE. WE CALL THEM FUZZY WUZZY BECAUSE IT FITS THEM MORE THEN ANY OTHER NAME IN OUR OPINION.
WE THINK THE NAME FUZZY WUZZY TELLS A LOT ABOUT THEM. WHEN I THINK OF FUZZY WUZZY I THINK SOFT CUDDLY AND VERY LOVING.. ALL THESES THINGS ARE THIS PUPPY.
SOME OTHER NAME'S BREEDERS CALL THE MIX OF BICHON AND SHIH TZU ARE:
JUST A QUICK NOTE: THE NAME DON'T MAKE THE DOG THE BREEDER DOES....
The FUZZY WUZZY'S inherits qualities from both the Shih Tzu and the Bichon Frise. They are an alert and spunky little dog. Playful and lively, this affectionate little dog needs to be with people and are generally good with other pets. They love human company. FUZZY WUZZY'S have an independent spirit, are intelligent, affectionate, bold and lively. They are self-assured, and have a happy temperament that is easy to live with. These bright little dogs are easy to train and just plain old love everyone. They need people to be happy. They are naturally sociable and are happiest when they are part of a family that takes them everywhere. This sociable trait also means that they are fine in the company of other dogs & pets and are excellent with children. A very alert watch dog. Used as watchdogs and to perform tricks, this hybrid is competitive, courageous, and obedient. This charming, gentle dog will bark when needed, but definitely is not a yapper.
As a hybrid (cross breed), Zuchon’s have what is called hybrid vigor. A hybrid does not inherit ALL bad traits and genetic disorders, because most disorders are recessive, which means it takes mom and dad’s mix to cause the disorder. The FUZZY WUZZY'S has a little longer nose than a Shih Tzu, which helps with the breathing issues. A FUZZY WUZZY also has tear ducts, unlike a Shih Tzu, so that there is less of a chance for eye problems. The FUZZY WUZZY is also less likely to have skin allergies, that can affect some Bichons, if they are bred too closely in the AKC lines.
Coat: The FUZZY WUZZY has a very loosely curled or fluffy double coat consisting of a textured outer coat lined with a soft, fine, silky undercoat that is 3 to 4 inches (7-10cm.) long and is virtually hypo-allergenic. The hair will usually not be as curley as a Bichon. A FUZZY WUZZY coat may be several different colors and will usually resemble a Shih Tzus coloring, but may be white like a Bichon. FUZZY WUZZY do not shed and therefore are often recommended as a breed for families with allergies.
Height - Weight: Dogs 9-12 inches (23-30cm.) Bitches 9-11 inches (23-28cm.) Weight: 7-12 pounds (3-5kg.)
Exercise: These are active little dogs and play will take care of most of their exercise needs, but they do love walks and especially to romp in the open.
Life Span: About 15 or more years. Hybrids have a tendency to outlive both there parent breeds.
Origin of each breed: Bichon Frise: The Bichon Frise first appeared in the 14th century, a cross between the Barbet Water Spaniel and the Poodle. The Bichon was traded by Spanish sailors and became a favorite of the 16th century French royal courts. It was a popular organ grinder's dog and also a circus performer. Today the Bichon Frise is primarily a companion and show dog.
Documents and paintings dating from the sixteenth century show dogs resembling a small lion (which the Shih-Tzu is sometimes called). In the seventeenth century, dogs were brought from Tibet and bred in the forbidden City of Peking, probably by crossing the Tibetan Lhasa Apso and the native Pekingese. The Shih-Tzu became a favorite of the Imperial Chinese court. The breed was so revered that for many years after the Chinese began trading with the West, they refused to sell, or even give away, any of the little dogs. It was not until 1930 that the first pair was imported to England. The Shih-Tzu was recognized in Britain in 1946 and by the AKC in the United States in 1969. Today the breed is very popular, both as a companion and as a glamorous show dog.
