  • What breed is this pup?

    Hi, we got this dog yesterday. he was advertised as Shih Tzu cross. His fur feels like sheep wool so though he may be crossed with a poodle. Or could he be pure bred?
    Thanks

    i clip dogs for a living at the moment and i've come across so many shih tzu's and shih tzu crosses and all of them seem to have quite a wooly coat

      I can see the shih tzu, can't see what other genes might be there, but can't see poodle.
      perhaps more pics Cath?

        Looks to me more likely to be Poodle cross than Shihtzu to me.

        The whole dog is too light on bone, legs are too long, face is too narrow, muzzle too long and fine and nose too small for much if any Shihtzu to be in there. All those traits look more Poodle-ish.

        Looks to me as if Shihtzu is a convenient label because of colouring. Colour is the worst way to try and identify crossbreds, followed by coat. Physical structural traits give far more clues.
