Maltese Shih Tzu Mix - Miley

by Deanna Z
(Tinley park, illinois)

Miley, my Maltese Shih Tzu was rescued last year from a high kill shelter at the age of 3 years old. The owners could no longer care for her and dropped her off. I saw Miley on Petfinder and arranged to go meet her 3 days before Christmas! Sleeping in her cage when all other dogs were barking around her. I got on the floor by her cage and spoke to her. She woke up with such excitement!! She's been mine ever since! Miley is very loyal and loving, gentle and does need regular groomings. She looks like a Maltese but is black in color and is 13.6 pounds. She is prone to skin irritations so she needs a good dog food. She has an underbite and is accepting of most other small dogs. I would definately get another Maltese/Shih Tzu mix!!

Bouncer Maltese/Shih Tzu

by Bruce
(San Bernardino, Ca)

We have raised larger dogs since we got married and decided it was time to get a smaller dog to be able to take places with us and easier to clean up after. (LOL)

We had looked at a couple of Yorkie/Papillon pups but when the breeder brought a tiny white fluff ball out that was it. She originally brought him out to show how small he was compared to his brother and sister. They were about 2 1/2 times his size.

When my wife took him to the vet the day after we brought him home, to have him checked out they said he was only 1 pound 3oz. The breeder said he might get to 3 pounds and that he was considered a teacup, but the vet said closer to 4 to 6.

We got Bouncer on Aug 29 2011, and he was born on June 25, 2011 so we haven't had him very long yet. We named him Bouncer because he bounces when he walks and hops almost like a rabbit when he runs. We have found out about his personality though. About 3 hours after bringing him home my wife was mopping the kitchen floor and he decided to attack the mop to play. He has tried to help her sweep, getting rolled over a couple of times because of his timing. He has even tried to help me use my shop vac and my wife vacuum. He has even chased after our cats (wanting to play)and has had them on the run. He has had one temporarily cornered, but she got away. Both our cats are at least 4 pounds and about 3 times as big as Bouncer.

We almost have to wrap our ribs from laughing so hard at some of his antics.

Love my Chasey.... he was born brown black and white but his markings now are white... black tip ears and lt brown on his back. He is so loving and caring. I love this breed. My mom and sister have Shitzu's. My sister has a Shitzu and a BLue Chow which get along great even with the size difference and me and mom both have yorkies also.

Great breeds to have. Love my furbabies. These are all great breeds to have. You wouldn't be disappointed.
