The Shiranian is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Shih Tzu and Pomeranian breeds. Small, adorable, and loyal, these pups inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents. Shiranians are also called Pomshi, Shih-Pom, Shih-A-Pom and Pom-Tzu. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed pups in shelters and breed-specific rescues, so adopt! Don’t shop! Shiranians make great companion animals for just about anyone, but a retired senior would most likely be an ideal match. These dogs love humans who pamper and dote on them. They’re pretty versatile and can thrive in almost any environment–family home, apartment, or small country house. Single person or big family, just make sure your Shiranian gets lots of love and attention. They should never be kept outside and will require regular vet check ups, dental cleanings, and grooming sessions. Frequent potty breaks also help with their small bladders.
