Shimoo™ Origins

The Shimoo™ Story

When we were searching for our new fur baby to add to our growing young family in 2015, we wanted a small hypoallergenic dog that was both comfortable indoors cuddling and snoozing on your lap, but also athletic and robust enough to take with us along our family outdoor adventures. We specifically wanted a mixed breed knowing they are generally healthier and less prone to genetic disorders.

After an extensive search, we found our Oreo, a Shitzu, Maltese, and Poodle cross breed from a family in southern California. Oreo is actually an "oops" baby when the sellers Shitzu "accidentally" bred with their friends Maltese/Poodle mix.

The stars must of aligned perfectly for that oops moment to create a very special new cross breed and we were lucky to find our super special boy Oreo.

As soon as we met Oreo, we knew he was special. He had the perfect balance of all the best features and qualities from each of the Shitzu, Maltese and Poodle genetics.

He had that super cute Shitzu face but not too scrunchie like pure Shitzu's. He had a slightly longer snout from his Maltese/Poodle DNA that gave him a devilishly handsome face. He had longer limbs with a leaner athletic build that gave him agility. Oreo glides across like a gazelle. A beautiful soft non-shedding coat with flowing wavy fur. He was sweet, playful, and had just the right amount of sassy in him. He was perfect.

We knew he was special and wanted to find a mate for him, but it was not easy. Finding the perfect match for Oreo took 6 years.

In early 2021, after nearly giving up, we finally found the perfect match for Oreo from a family in Northern California. Not 1, but 2 beautiful girls (sisters) with the same cross breed lines who were stunningly gorgeous. We drove 30 hours non-stop to bring the girls back home to Washington. This is how the Shimoo™ legacy began.

Meet our first Shimoo puppies!

Our very first litter of Shimoo™ puppies were born January 2022. They all found their furever homes within days of listing on Craigslist. People started offering more than we asked for in bidding wars.

It was then we realized how truly special our Shimoo™ puppies were and we trademarked the Shimoo™ name to ensure we could carefully manage and legally protect our Shimoo™ breeding.

Our Shimoo™ fur babies are truly a unique exclusive breed.
