Maggie my multi coloured Shih Tzu girl

by Joseph

I re-homed my multi coloured pup from a couple who could no longer give her the attention she needed.

She isn’t KC registered but was told that both parents were Shih Tzu, although based on her petit size, facial features and combination of colours (White, Grey, Black and Tan) I think she may be mixed with maybe a Yorkshire terrier.

Either way, she has a fantastic personality, is completely fearless and has bags of energy! Has anyone ever seen a Shih Tzu that looks like her before?

Hi, Janice here from Miracle Shih Tzu
-------------------------------------------
Thank you for taking the time to post your dog's story and share some great photographs. She is beautiful, and I love her colors. They are unique.

If I had to guess, I'd call her a brindle and white Shih Tzu. This color combination is not an easy combination of colors to achieve, so I would have to say you have an exceptional dog.

It is interesting that you mentioned her petite size. It is my understanding that there is a big difference in Shih Tzu sizes where the UK and other European countries tend to have larger Shih Tzu dogs than those in the U.S. Perhaps she comes from a line that was imported.

If I may also add my two cents worth, I don't see any Yorkie in her. She does look 100% Shih Tzu to me especially in her face.

Shih Tzu and Yorkshire Terrier mixes (Shorkie Tzu) generally have a longer nose and shorter body. Their faces are not quite as rounded as a pure Shih Tzu, and their ear placement is a bit different too.

Either way, I think you have a fantastic dog, and I'm so glad that you were able to re-home her.
