"Bullet is a Muttchi. His father is a Chihuahua and his mother is 100% mutt! However, we think he may have at least some Cairn Terrier in him. He's very playful, learns quickly and totally enjoys his other canine pack friends Lizzy, our 5 year old Borgi and Tucker our 4 year old Doxi-Pekapoo. He looks a little like Toto the Cairn Terrier in the Wizard of Oz, only much smaller. We used Cesar Milan's method to introduce Bullet to our other dogs. That is, before the dogs were introduced to each other, my husband took the older dogs on a leash walk in one direction, I took Bullet on a leash in the other direction. We met up and just continued to walk. By the time we got home, there was no 'posturing'... just your average sniffing each other. We've had Bullet for 5 days and all three dogs get along quite well. As for house breaking, he's doing very well. No accidents in the house however we do take him out very frequently. Hopefully he'll eventually give us some sign that he wants to go out. Having this little 6 pounder is a joy. He sorta completes our little pack of mixed breeds."

Karma's owners were curious as to what was in her mix. They decided to get a canine DNA test done to find out for sure. Below are the results. Check out Karma's unique multi-colored nose painted on so perfectly.

Pippin as a 3 week-old-puppy—she is 37-74% Miniature Pinscher, 10-19% Shih Tzu, and 10-19% Lhasa Apso.

"We rescued Pippin when she was only 3 weeks old, found abandoned in a box. We had NO clue as to what she was! We finally decided at around 10 weeks old to do a dog breed DNA test and it came back that she is 37-74% Miniature Pinscher, 10-19% Shih Tzu, and 10-19% Lhasa Apso. We love her no matter what she is! She is full of energy! At 12 weeks old she is a bit of a chewer and nipper, but she is going to be enrolled in a puppy class soon. She loves her family and is extremely bonded to our Autistic daughter and she is currently in training to be a therapy/companion dog for her. She is VERY smart, she loves to run and play, but then 'flops' down when she gets tired, loves to be around her family, and wants to go everywhere with us. She gets along well with our older adult Pomeranian and senior cat, although I'm not sure they appreciate her puppy energy!”
