One of the most popular designer Pom breed mixes is the Pomeranian Shih Tzu. Other common names for this mix are the Pom-Tzu, ShihPom or Shiranian.
The Pomeranian Shih Tzu is a mix of the Pomeranian and the Shih Tzu. The Designer Dogs Kennel Club as well as The American Canine Hybrid Club recognize this hypoallergenic mixed breed.
The ShihPom is a very devoted and tenderhearted designer dog mix. They are very smart and highly energetic. The Pomeranian Shih Tzu needs lots of human companionship and enjoys daily walks. They easily adapt to homes with other pets and older children. Families with young children need to use caution with bringing the Shiranian into their home. The Pom Tzu's life expectancy is 15 years or more on average.
The Pom-Tzu's height is between 7-12 inches and weighs around 4-16 pounds. They come in many colors such as gold, red, orange, black, sable, chocolate or brindle. The ShihPom coat color can be any of these color combinations or only just one.
The Shiranian has a long straight or curly double coat. The hypoallergenic Pomeranian Shih Tzu requires daily brushing, thus they are perfect for people suffering from allergies.
