The Shichon is a mix between a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu. This joyful and attentive breed tends to have a wavy, fluffy coat that is usually white, sometimes with brown Shih-Tzu markings. Shichons are playful, affectionate, and confident, and can make great watchdogs. They are easy to live with and do well in any size living space.

“Bichon frise” literally translates to “curly lap dog,” which is certainly an accurate description of these little white dogs! Made popular by their use as circus dogs, Bichons love attention and excel in learning and performing tricks. Bichons are lively, cheerful and unconditionally devoted to their owners. They also tend to be more allergy friendly, because they are non-shedding and have hair instead of fur. Bichons are playful and affectionate, are great with children and usually weigh 10-15 lbs. as adults.
Brussels Griffon is a small-sized breed with a big personality and human-like eyes. This breed was originally bred to hunt rats. They are very active and have a high energy level, so they require lots of exercises. It’s a very intelligent breed, but it tends to be stubborn, and therefore early training and socialization are very important with lots of patience. This breed is ideal for those pet parents who want a small but energetic dog. They can be very noisy if they are left alone for long periods of time.
The Shih-Tzu is one of the oldest dog breeds, originating in Tibet thousands of years ago. Known as the “lion dog”, these small lap dogs were prized by royalty as household pets. Shih-Tzus are affectionate companion and family animals, known to live long, healthy lives. They prefer to be indoors and, while often docile and quiet, are also playful and spunky. They become very attached to their owners and love to be spoiled. Because of their small size (they typically weigh in at 10-15 lbs.), Shih-Tzus are well suited for most living spaces, large or small.

Our little Annabelle arrived and she’s beautiful. We had a good experience with PuppySpot and they were helpful in getting our puppy to us.
Benji is wonderful! The whole experience with Puppy Spot has been fabulous. They give more information than I needed lol and lots of follow up. Customer service and pet delivery service was on top of everything. For a 1st time pet owner it's wonderful to have all that information, as an old pet mom myself I can tell you the information given is good advice. My vet is extremely through. During the exam he asked where I found him. He commented how healthy, handsome and well mannered Benji is. The vet also appreciated the documentation of medical history and the microchipping. Benji is very easygoing which is great for our family. Our daughter Amelia is overly loving! LOTS of hugs and cuddles, Benji is loving it. Evan our son has autism and is sensitive to sudden movement and being touched. Thankfully noises don't bother Evan. Benji is already picking up on Evan's cues. Benji's reactions to Evan's anxiety are impressive. Puppies and dogs of friends and family normally don't know when to back off during play or they get highly anxious. This morning while dressing Evan, Benji was walking around his legs sniffing him. The tickle from the fur made Evan anxious and he overreacted repeating, "Stop it Benji!" and accordingly Benji backed up and gave Evan space. It impressed me that Benji did not run away he just calmly backed up, sat and kept eye contact which helped Evan to calm down. I feel things like that will help them build a trusting relationship. As an autism Mom I watch everything closely to ensure everyone is safe and to avoid anxiety triggers. Again I was impressed as Benji had the sense to calmly redirect Evan snuggling into Evan's lap at a tense time we go through with school pick ups and drop offs. Some pets would have hidden feeling that tension. Benji is even helping this stressed out mom relax. The kids and Benji have even created their own game called Bark Tag. They run around calling Benji. He then chases them when he barks they gently tag him and chase him till he barks again then they run. Hats off to Benji's breeder for the love he must have received to be so well behaved and healthy!
