About the Breed

The Shih Pom, also known as the Shiranian dog, is a beautiful designer dog that is loved for its puppy-like looks and small size. The lovely breed is a mix between a Shih Tzu and a Pomeranian, both purebred. This puppy comes with a combination of qualities from two amazing breeds. He is a fun-loving companion dog that has all the fluff in the world. He is very friendly and playful and has the loveliest disposition.

These adorable small dogs have only been around for close to 20 years and are bred for companionship. They are currently among the most popular designer puppies in the United States. They are popular for their intelligence, sweet personalities, and toy size.

Appearance and Grooming

Shih Poms are one of the cutest teddy bear breeds in Dogdom. Everything about them is tiny and adorable. They have small, slightly raised ears, sweet, dark eyes, a little tail that is curled over their backs, and a very fluffy coat. Some of the colors that these designer puppies come in are red, orange, brown, brindle, white, and sable, with various combinations of these and/or other colors. The size of this breed is classified as toy, with adult dogs reaching an average of 7 to 12 inches in height. 

Their beautiful, long coats need to be brushed frequently throughout the week to help avoid tangles and knots from forming. Baths should be done every 4 to 6 weeks, or sooner when called for. 

Temperament

A perfect balance of calmness and spunkiness, the Shiranian puppy has an excellent temperament. He is a gentle, sweet-tempered dog that doesn't display aggressive behavior in any circumstance. He may be shy around strangers, however, this is easily fixed with early socialization training. 

Family and Companionship

Incredibly friendly and passionate about games and playdates, these dogs make fantastic family dogs. They love to be in the company of others, whether they are children, strangers, or other pets. Being alone is one of the things these dogs don't fancy. Since they attach quite strongly to their families, they are unequipped to handle being alone. They may be at risk of developing separation anxiety, so they are often recommended to families and owners that are home most of the day.

Exercise

Being very small and more relaxed than energetic, the Shih Pom requires very little in the form of exercise. Playing indoors and going for a daily walk or two are enough to keep this cute pooch happy, healthy, and fit. Keep in mind that these dogs are not built to withstand heavy exercise. It is beneficial to keep walks short and frequent. Rough exercise or play can be dangerous for these pups, so caution is advised. They may suffer from hip dysplasia problems if handled roughly. 

It is recommended to keep an eye on their diet and make sure their dog food portions and exercise routine go well together. Shih Poms can be prone to weight issues if allowed to indulge in all their cravings. 

Training and Socialization

Shih Pom puppies, like all dogs, can become stubborn when not properly motivated. Although they are smart and more than capable of learning anything in training, keeping them motivated can be tricky. It's important to use reward-based methods and plenty of praise and treats when training Shih Poms.

Socialization is perhaps one of the most important parts of training. Introducing your puppy to new people, other dogs, places, sounds, and experiences will help him become more outgoing and sociable.
