Papastzu Build Information

Sometimes called a papitzu, the adorable little papastzu is a hybrid cross between a papillon and a shih tzu. Papastzus weigh between nine and 15 pounds. Their long coats are typically white, black and brown in color, and the coat sheds minimally. A periodic grooming routine will maintain the coat and keep the hair from tangling and matting. Their ears usually hang downward like those of the shih tzu parent. Their tails are long, hanging downward with an upward curl near the end. Papastzus are generally quiet dogs, and they have minimal exercise needs.
