What an ‘ah’ factor these cute mixed breed pooch puppies have.
Folks, you’ve probably heard of cock-a-poos (a Cocker Spaniel/poodle cross), or labradoodles (a Labrador/poodle cross), but what about a Shi Chi?
Last week I met Hendrix on Southsea seafront and what a ball of adorable fluffiness this three-month-old Shih Tzu/Chihuahua cross was.
I thought I’d Google mixed breed dogs on the internet and blimey, there’s dozens.
When I was little, if a pet pedigree pooch escaped and had a doggy-dallying with the local mutt, their puppies were just called mongrels.
Yes I know it’s pedigree crossed with pedigree now.
Last Sunday I bumped into two lovely lady community wardens with Bobby, a gorgeous six-month-old Jack Russell/Shih Tzu cross.
And the breed name...JackShiht. Loving it!
