Hello everyone,

We are all very excited about the new arrival, we going to bring home a puppy in November and my daughter's are over the moon. :)

The puppy's mummy is a cross breed between a Shi tzu and a Pug and the dad is a Jack Russel, anyone have any idea how can this turn up? Seems a bit of a big mixture to me, :confused:

Any advise or experiences would be great,

Thanks

Frederica

it'll be a case of wait and see with a mixed breed dog ;)

Best advice I can give is sign up for rewards based puppy classes buy the Perfect puppy http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Perfect-Puppy-Britains-Number/dp/060061722X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349697608&sr=8-1

And SOCIALISE your puppy :D

And just when you think you've got passed the chewing, nipping peeing and pooing phase and you have a 'perfect' pup - the 'teenage' months will arrive and it'll be back to square one :eek: But be patient and consistant and fingers crossed you'll have a socailble and well behaved dog in a year or 2 ;)

With any cross you can get big differences in coat and looks and characteristics. Things like Labradoodles is a prime example.

This is a pug shi tzu pup

But so is this apparently

Then of course you have the jack russell as well which will add to the variety as well, you may even find the whole litter isnt uniform and varies considerably from pup to pup.

I'm not concerned about the way it will look, but when I went to the pet shop the lady there got me a bit concerned. She asked me what breed was it and when I told her she looked at me like she was feeling sorry for me and said ohh that is a odd mixture of characters.
I don't really understand much about dogs and read about the 3 breeds involved and didn't look that bad :confused:.

I also have a almost teenage daughter so I'm ready for the puppy teenage years ;)


Thank you all for your replies.

Just remember. Teenagers don't listen to a word you say, go off and do exactly what they want to, answer you back and try to break all the rules.

Not sure if this advice is for your dog or daughter! :D

Your pup will get traits from all the breeds in it - a breed might be more dominant though. You could read about the breeds so you can be prepared for how it might turn out.

Remember to post pics when s/he arrives!
