Cavalier King Charles Spaniel / Shih-Tzu Hybrid Dogs
The Cava-Tzu is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Shih Tzu. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
"Diva Dog Chloe - This was a photo we had taken at "Clix Portrait Studio" of our Cava-Tzu named "Chloe". She is 6 months old in this photo. My 8yr old dressed her up for her photo.. hence the photo title of "Diva Dog Chloe" :) She is a very loving lap dog, great with kids and although leery around other dogs, is great with our 2yr old golden retriever. She was hard to housebreak (like ALL little dogs it seems) but very smart to learn other new tricks quickly. She loves to play and be around people. She has the protective bark of the Shih-Tzu combined with the waggy tail of the Cavalier!"
