    I'm new to these Boards but i have been reading alot of the post and i heard somewhere that an 8 week old Shih Poo Puppy is about the size of a Guinea Pig.... is this true?! If it is We (my parents) are thinking of making a pen out of extra fencing in my backyard till she gets older.
    So that she still gets frech air.

    Thanks For the help :)

    P.s we have everything ready cept the outdoor sitiuation.

    Maybe we should just buy a X-pen -_- :):)

    We got my shihpoo at around 12 weeks and she was just 4 pounds. She did grow fast though. :)

    I got my Shih-poo at 8 wks and he was 2 pds. He is now 20 wks and is just over 5 pds.

    I think the idea of a play pen is great idea, gives you puppy a place to play and keeps her safe.

    I live in a new development and we don't have a fenced in yard yet.. so I also made a "play pen" with some plastic temporary fencing.

    Wow teddy really is adorable,
    my girl is gonna be completely black, and i hope she is as cute as your teddy :D but i do have another question...
    are they playful?
    i've been reading up on them on breeder sites and info pages but none really say, i would like a playful pup :mrgreen:

    Re: c u t e

    LOL... be prepared for lots of playfullness! I hope you have the energy to keep up :lol:

    My puppy can play all day. He loves children and any other breed of dog, big or small. He is so active that I decided to take him to doggy daycare twice a week. They call him Trouble at the daycare because he is so playful and active.

    However, my aunt has a terri-poo and he is very timid. He won't play with anyone outside his family and is very timid.

    I guess it depends on the dogs personality and it's important to start socializing them right away. I have Teddy in an 8 week puppy/socializing class. It teaches them how to be playful with other animals and humans.

    shiha poo puppy weight


    This is my first post. I got a shiha poo 2 weeks ago. At 9 weeks he was 3.5 lbs and now at 11 wks his is 4.5!!! The breeders said he'd be about 8-10 lbs. He is so cute!! He already has learned to sit and play fetch...so I'm assuming he got some poodle smarts there but my fave part of him is his little shih tzu tail!!

    I want to include a picture but is it true you have to pay 9.99 a year per picture???

    If you would let me know that would be excellent!

    you can post pics for free at picturetrail.com (they have a membership version too, make sure you pick the free)

    My shihpoo weighed 3.5 at 9 weeks.... They told us he should be around 8 -10 lbs. Well, he's 16!!! Which is big for a shihpoo..
