Shihpoo Characteristics

Shihpoos are wonderful companions with their high intelligence, loyalty, and extremely affectionate natures. They’re very outgoing and energetic, but their small size and intelligence help make them a great pet even for new pet parents. The key with a Shihpoo is to start obedience training early and make sure you socialize them with other dogs and people.

The Shihpoo is a cross between the cuddly Shih-Tzu and hypoallergenic Poodle. Like most Poodle mixes, Shihpoos were bred to help people with allergies. These dogs can come with straight hair like the Shih-Tzu, curly hair like the Poodle, or a mixture. The Shihpoo also blends the best of both breeds and isn’t as prone to the health issues of purebred dogs. At the same time, you should always make sure to research your breeder before purchasing.
 
Weighing anywhere between 8-18 lbs and standing between 8-16 inches, these little dogs are commonly seen in black, white, and merle. Many experts agree that small dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. This is likely due to the 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. Taking your Shihpoo to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early.
 
A quirk of many dogs who weigh less than ten pounds is that they believe they’re much larger than they actually are. Consequently, a lot of little dogs often aren’t afraid to pick fights with large dogs. To help ensure your Shihpoo doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce it to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. If you plan on taking your Shihpoo to a dog park, keep a constant eye on your dog.

How dog-friendly is Georgia?

With its beautiful hiking trails, great weather, and pet-friendly laws, Georgia is a good place to bring a pup into your family.


Pawsafe, a reputable site for pet safety information, ranks Georgia the 17th most pet-friendly state in the country. They found that Georgia has the highest concentration of dog-friendly trails. Of the 1,188 trails in the state, 987 are dog-friendly (83%). Pawsafe ranked Georgia 12th for pet-friendly attractions and activities.


However, Safewise conducted a similar study in which Georgia was ranked as the 8th least pet-friendly state. Georgia took a hit for low pet-friendly rentals with only 27% of rentals accepting dogs and cats.


Both studies evaluate states for their animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.

Is Atlanta a pet-friendly city?

Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. In their study, Atlanta – Georgia’s largest city by far – ranked 12th. Good job, Atlanta!


Specifically, the city was 56th for outdoor pet-friendliness, 11th for pet budget, and 25th for pet health and wellness. The city has the 5th lowest dog insurance premiums. It also has the 4th most animal shelters per capita.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks. In the study, Atlanta is ranked 58th with 0.8 parks per 100,000 residents.

A few more statistics for Georgia’s dog lovers

Thirty-seven percent of Georgia residents own a dog. This is just below the national average of 40%. 


According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Georgia are German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, and Beagles. Georgia loves a working family dog! In Atlanta, the most popular breeds are Lab mixes, Chihuahua, Goldens, Shih Tzus, Pitbulls, and Yorkies. 


As a whole, the state seems to prefer dogs over cats. Georgia has a 1.15 dog to cat ratio. This is the 10th highest in the country.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Georgia

Georgia saved 136,941 dogs and cats during 2020. This is 14,510 more animals than in 2019, but approximately 14,735 were killed the past year. Out of 159 animal shelters, only 60 have a no-kill policy. The overall save rate for the state is 82.7%. We like that Georgia seems to be going in a positive direction, and hope to see this progres continue.
