We had a superb experience dealing with Puppy Spot for our furry friend. We now have had our shihpoo for 3 weeks. Puppy Spot was with us till the very end when Paris arrived at our doorstep. We love her dearly! Thank you Puppy Spot! Leatrice and Lynn
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.
