The Sco-Shi is a hybrid dog, also known as a designer dog. The Sco-Shi is a cross between the Scottish Terrier and the Shih Tzu. It is not always possible to determine the characteristics, temperament or traits of a mixed breed. You will likely find the Sco-Shi has a combination of the characteristics found in both the Scottish Terrier and the Shih Tzu.
Hi i have a 1 year old Female Scoshi, Athena, her mother was the scottie and her father the shih tzu. She has 3 litter brothers, Athena simply loves everyone and all species she believes all dogs MUST be her friend and refuses to think otherwise she is loving and kind she never bites she is an extremely quick learner and always makes people smile. she doesnt get the idea of playing ball but she loves her stuff squeaky toys, she can be both energetic and a couch potato, independant and dependant. she barks only when she hears someone come into our yard and when we “sing” together she weighs 5.5 kilos (12.1 pounds) her brothers are about 1-2 kilos heavier then her ….her fur is much like the scottie but easy to maintain and not nearly as long. All i can say is they are a pleasure her brothers and her are loving smart and always happy, i have another Scoshi comming soon which will be a second generation scoshi (the father is athena’s brother) so i shall let you know how he turns out :)….if anyone would like pictures …go to facebook and look up ” Athena Saphina Nagle” she is the pretty dog wearing the pink ans blue dress 🙂
