He's born on 27 May 2016, 4 months old with complete vaccines and updated vet exams. Please serious interested buyer only.The cross breed between a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu is commonly known as a Shichon, Tzu Frise or Zuchon. This is the most common type of teddy bear puppies breed and is generally what people think of when referring to teddy bear dogs. This breed gained the name 'Teddy Bear' due to its small size, fluffy coat, delicate features, large eyes and their general resemblance to the stuffed teddy bear. On average, they grow to be nine to twelve inches from the shoulder and will weigh between eight to twenty five pounds when fully grown.Zuchons are hypoallergic dogs and are suitable for people with dog allergies. They usually have a longer coat that will not shed much if at all it does shed. However, the longer coat may need more grooming and maintenance time.They have a great personality and are lively, well mannered and playful. The zuchon breed becomes devoted to their families and will need much attention. It is important to understand that they don't do well if left alone for a long period of time. They are easily trained (see our top training teddy bear puppies tips) ,thus you are sure to enjoy their company because of their good behavior.A zuchon puppy makes for a fairly good watch dog as he or she will bark to alert members of the family that somebody is nearby. When socialized at a rather earlier age, zuchon puppies are good with other pets and will get along very well with children.The Zuchon hybrid breed has longevity with an average life expectancy of between twelve to fifteen years. Through their lives, they are usually healthy and don't show congenital defects like the other purebreds.
