Shiffon Breed Appearance
The Shiffon will be a small dog; he will weigh no more than fifteen pounds fully grown; females may be slightly smaller than their male counterparts. His coat may be one of two varieties, depending upon the dominant parent breed. It may be wiry and short like that of the Brussels Griffon, or it may be long and silky like that of the Shih Tzu parent breed. Generally, his coat color is rather uniform. He may be brown, black, or a combination of the two. He may also have a few white markings. Should the Brussels parent breed be dominant, he may have the "bearded" characteristic of the Brussels Griffon. He will have dark eyes, and his tail is likely to curl over his back. He may have bushy hair around his eyes. He may also have floppy ears that will need a little TLC.
