Cava-Tzu Characteristics

The Cava-Tzu is an adorable little active lap dog. A hybrid breed between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Shih-Tzu, they are loyal, loving dogs who enjoy nothing more than spending time with their humans. Their small size makes them a great candidate for apartment living, but be sure to provide them with at least a brisk walk every day to ensure good health and happy behavior.

The Cava-Tzu is a small dog with a black, brown, or white coat, weighing in between 9-16 pounds and standing about 17 inches tall at the shoulder.  These dogs, like many small dogs, love to be held, and trust us when we say, people want to hold them! However, it is important to provide them with playtime or other forms of exercise to stay healthy.  
 
Like many small dogs, Cava-Tzus are prone to some dental issues. Experts say this is because of their smaller skulls and jaws, which can lead to overcrowding of the teeth. This overcrowding creates more spaces where food can get trapped, and bacteria can grow.  Just be sure you keep your regular appointments with the vet and keep your Cava-Tzu’s teeth clean.
 
Cava-Tzu’s have boundless personalities and often aren’t at all afraid to pick fights with large dogs. To help ensure your Cava-Tzu doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. They’re great with other animals and children when socialized and are affectionate, snuggly companions.
