Shiranians are tiny adorable dogs that are gentle and sweet. Although their personalities may vary depending on what traits they inherent from each of the parent breeds, these dogs are usually playful and energetic. With early training and socialization, they will learn easily. They have soft coats like their parents which can be solid, bi-colored, or tri-colored, and are generally hypoallergenic. They need moderate grooming and some daily exercise to keep them healthy.
Origin of the Shih Tzu-Pom
The Shih Tzu-Pom, also called the Shiranian, Shi-Pom, and PomTzu, descends from two well-known purebred dogs, the Shih-tzu and Pomeranian. Like most designer dogs, their origin is not known and they are relatively new. The Pomeranian descends from the larger sled dogs, the German Spitz, and came from norther Poland and Germany. Shih-Tzu is a noble lap dog from Tibet and are thought to have developed from the crossbreeding of the Lhaso Apso and the Pekingese.
