When selecting the breed that is most compatible

for your lifestyle and your situation

there are many factors to consider.

What kind of Temperament:

  • Good with children or

snap at teasing children

  • Friendly towards strangers and

outside family members

  • May provoke bigger dogs

  • Bark if unchecked

  • Affectionate

  • Obedient or strong willed

Qualities desired or unwanted:

• Non-shed

• Need to exercise or not

• Need to have jobs…

herd, guard or hunt

• Grooming

• Likes cold (winter)

Line breeding

(breeding to a certain dog to keep the bloodline going)
Example:  Elhew champion English Pointer. 
The breeder would state 3rd generation from Elhew's

bloodline or that Elhew was this puppy Great Grandfather. 

Hopefully Elhew doesn't have any faults (bad traits) to pass on.  

Rescue dogs can carry diseases and/or parasites

we do not have immunities against (to be able to resist infection). 

Inbreeding increases health risks. 

It's why we are not suppose to marry
our cousins.  Inbreeding (breeding related dogs)

Example:  mother is bred with the son. 

 Mixed breeding or avoiding breeding to

closely related parents helps avoids health issues.

None of my males are related to any of my females

used for breeding. This is one of the reasons I do NOT

have countless health issues.

If you decide to purchase a mixed breed than it is best 

that both parents are registered.  Registration helps keeps

breeders honest about what they are truly breeding. 

Ask to see the parents' registration paperwork. 

The breeder should have the registration numbers
on the puppy's paperwork.  I usually use a registered purebred

shih tzu and registered purebred bichon to produce

shih tzu/bichon-Teddy Bears.  I can show a paper trail when

a teddy bear is crossed with a bichon or shih Tzu.

Shihpoo (shih tzu/poodle)

Father purebred Poodle and Mother purebred Shih Tzu with
papers proving it true.  Ask to see the documents.

This insures that the parents were not chosen because they kind of look like a Shih Tzu and Poodle…so we’ll call the puppies-shihpoos.

They maybe Lhaso Apso-Poodle (small dog breeds) which can be fine but may be not good with children & strangers. 

ALhaso Apsowas bred to be a guard dog where the Shih Tzuwas bred to be the inside palace pet.  pet supplies plus available

Rescue dogs most of the time do not have paperwork, the vet will need to give his best guess of what the dog is and how old it is.  The fact is that it it unknown and cannot be proven.  Breeds are bred for the traits, they are either bred into the breed or out of the breed.

One or both may have sneaky neighbor dog (unknown father) breeding in its background with characteristics you would prefer to avoid.  If one of the parents have shedding qualities your puppy may shed. Even if one parent has non-shed qualities and most of the past litters have been non-shed.

Do you want to gamble?

  There is NO guarantee that the puppy

will NOT have some quality you DON'T want.

If one of the parents has shedding,

not good with children, etc....

qualities you don't care for...

your puppy may have the unwanted quality

I don't care to have a dog in my possession that may bite my family

or cause problems in other areas that are important to me.

Yorkie(yorkshire terrier) or

Maltese(terrier) or

Chihuahua mix
may not like children or anyone else but the owner. 

Terriers are happier with one pet owners and

where they can claim everything as theirs.

Cocker Spaniel mix
may not tolerate teasing

(will bite to protect themselves) and prefers to hunt.

Jack Russel mix (jackapoo)
May shed and may not tolerate teasing

(will bite to protect themselves),
are aggressive towards other pets and

are very active dogs who need allot of exercise. 

Lhasa Apso mix
may not like children or

tolerate teasing and prefers to guard.

Cavaliermix with nonshed breed
 may shed and is a working breed that prefers to hunt

your neighborhood squirrels,
 birds or other fun creatures.

Beagle mix with nonshed breed
may shed and is a working breed that prefers to hunt

your neighborhood squirrels,
birds or other fun creatures. 

Beagle have voices and like to use them. 

Bichon, Shih Tzu - mixed or purebred
non-shed, a lap dog breed that prefers to keep track of you

rather than hunt squirrels, birds or other creatures.

They were not bred for anything but being a lap dog. 

They won't herd your children or over guard your property

but they will give you  all their unconditional love. 

They do not chase the mailman but instead think

everyone is their friend. 

Rescue -

May have AGGRESSION issues -

may have bitten people before

May have BEHAVIORAL issues -

 marking or going inside the house

May have HEALTH issues -

heart murmur, kidney or liver problems,

the list goes on

May not have been QUARANTINED long enough -

contagious diseases and parasites

may take up to 90 days to show up

No well-informed retail pet store is going to sell dogs and cats

sourced from any so-called "rescue" or animal shelter

because they know the facts that animals obtained from these unregulated sources impose a threat to the health and safety

of both people and other animals.
