Chacy Ranior

Chacy Ranior or Chacy Bear is an active little dog with a lovely and lively personality. The breed originated in United States in the year 2000.

It was initially known as “Shichon” but the name was changed to Chacy Ranior in December 2005. The reason for changing the breed’s name was that Shichon was often wrongly interpreted as a name for the Shih-Tzu / Bichon Cross.

Moving on, this companion dog has been developed from a number of dog breeds such as Bichon Frise, Shih-Tzu, Poodle, Maltese, Lhasa Apso, Havanese, Yorkshire Terrier and Miniature Schnauzer. However, whether it is still undergoing development or not, even now, is under shades of doubt.

Like Affenpinscher, Maltese, Cairn Terrier and Shih Tzu, Chacy Raniors do not shed much hair. Hence, they make great family pets for those who are prone to dog allergies.

Grooming Requirements

These dogs require regular grooming, especially the ones with longer hair coat. The coat consists of soft, dense top coat and an insulating under coat.

If you do not have time to give proper attention towards maintenance of the hair coat, you can get it cut in short, puppy-cut which is easy to manage.


Chacy Ranior temperament is stable, playful, loving, outgoing, intelligent and attentive. They are usually friendly with strangers. Plus, they are also good with kids. These charming dogs are fully devoted to their families. They strive on companionship.

However, leaving your beloved doggy alone for a long time can give rise to behavioral problems. Therefore, it is suggested to have some other pet as well, even a cat. The dog can get along well with other household pets.

When training and socializing a Chacy Ranior puppy, try to stay calm and consistent. Plus, use positive reinforcements rather than heavy-handed methods to encourage the dog. Obedience training should not be much of a trouble as these dogs are easy to train.

Though not exactly yappy still, these dogs do tend to bark a lot. Thus, they do well with calm but confident owners who can establish their pack leader status over the dog without being harsh.

Key Points

These cheerful dogs are fairly active indoors. Thus, play takes care of most of their exercise needs. Plus, they enjoy the ritual of daily walks and occasional romps in open areas, off leash.

If you are planning to let the dog play in your backyard, make sure it is properly fenced. Chacy Ranior dogs adapt well in apartment situation even without a yard provided, they have good company.
