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.
Shichons usually will have a double coat comprised of a loosely curled, fluffy outer coat and a fine, soft, and silky undercoat.
This hybrid breed has gained popularity in the United States in the past decade.
