Shiranian

Pomeranian / Shih Tzu Hybrid Dogs

Information and Pictures

Izzy the Shih Tzu / Pomeranian mix breed dog (Shiranian) at 7 months old—"Izzy belonged to my great-grandchildren when daddy said "the puppy has to go" so I said I would take her. She is the best little dog I have ever had. She is extremely smart and she was easy to train. She doesn't shed but hair does come out when I brush her. She is a good watch dog. She loves to play with my Russian Siberian kitten who is 1 month older than Izzy and the kitten weighs about 2 pounds more. They are the best buddies and make me laugh. When they are not napping, they are playing. They are just the cutest together. Everyone in the family loves Izzy. She is tiny with lots of energy and very loving. She gives kisses all the time. I love the fact that I don't have to take her to the groomer every month. All she needs is a 15 minute bath and blow dry and Izzy is done. She is the best dog I've ever had."

Description

The Shiranian is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Pomeranian 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.

Princess the Shih Tzu / Pomeranian mix breed puppy at 8 weeks old— "We had just brought her home and I had her on the couch and she fell between the cushions. She stayed there long enough for me to get my camera ready and to take her picture. We are training her for outside pottying and staying in the house when we leave."
