Learn About Silky Tzu Pups!

Breed Overview

Intelligent, friendly and affectionate, the Silky Tzu is a hybrid of the Silky Terrier and the Shih Tzu dog breeds. Tiny they may be, but Silky Tzu dogs are highly adaptable, making them the perfect choice for apartment living or those that are living in smaller homes. Because the coat of a Silky Tzu is made from hair and not fur, these pups are an excellent choice for people with allergies. The Silky Tzu is a very affectionate dog, so they prefer owners that are not out of the house  for long periods of time regularly. That said, with early socialization and training, the Silky Tzu can help them become confident around people, pets, and different situations, including strangers. They are also quite energetic and need consistency when it comes to training. If you are looking to complete your family with a Silky Tzu, Puppies Direct can find the perfect match for you.
