Shiranian Puppies

Have you been thinking about looking at Shiranian puppies to add one to your life?

These dogs — a mix between the Shih-Tzu and the Pomeranian — are adorable but, as with any bred or mix, you should do your research. Here’s what you need to know.

Where To Get Shiranian Puppies

For the most part, when it comes to mixed breeds, it’s easy to find on in a shelter. However, Shiranian puppies are designer breeders, which means this isn’t quite as easy. If you’re willing to adopt an older dog or aren’t set on the exact mix of breeds, you may be able to find a similar puppy. However, for those who really want a Shiranian puppy to raise, they’re going to be looking at a breeder.

Truffle…

Breeders can be great places to get a Shiranian puppy, but it does require some care when it comes to research. Because Shiranian puppies are mixed breeds, this means they can’t have AKC papers. This makes it all the easier for backyard breeders and puppy mills to churn out unhealthy dogs that are a mix of a lot of things and pass them off as healthy and well-socialized Shiranian puppies.

When picking out a breeder, make sure you do the appropriate research. Although your puppy can’t have papers, they should have shot records and proof of health-tested parents. You should also ensure the breeder isn’t willing to sell the puppy before they’re eight weeks old and that they’re happy to answer any questions they have.

If the breeder seems like they’re trying to hide things, it may be too good to be true.

The Cost

Shiranian puppies can cost anywhere up to $1300. If a breeder seems to be selling one for a very low price, it’s a big red flag — you might end up with a lot of vet and training bills down the line.

Appearance

Shiranian puppies will be a direct mix of their parents. You can expect long hair and a very small stature! They’re ideal for those who don’t want a large dog at all.

Temperament

The great thing about these dogs is that they’re very quick learners. Shiranian puppies are eager to please and will go out of their way to make you happy. This means they’ll pick up on their training quickly, but you should have some patience with potty training. Dogs this small can take a while to learn exactly how to hold their bladder.

They’re affectionate and playful, making them the ideal companion. They love to play with their owners and cuddle at the end of the night. Because they’re so small, they also don’t have high exercise needs.

One thing to watch with these dogs is that they might develop separation anxiety. They don’t like to be left alone, and it’s important to be aware of this. If you work long hours, they may not be the dog for you.

Shiranian Puppies – Veterinary Needs

The health issues of a mixed breed can be hard to predict. This is because they could take any one thing from either parent, or have different issues altogether. Your Shiranian should be health, since the parents don’t have major hereditary issues, but health-testing prior to breeding always helps.

Otherwise, you can expect their veterinary needs to be the same as any other dog. They’ll need a series of three or four shots to protect them against distemper, parvovirus, and other nasty diseases. Until they have these, keep them away from areas with dog traffic as they may pick something up off the ground. They’ll also need a rabies shot at the end of this, and you can get them vaccinated for bordetella. This protects against a strain of kennel cough.

After that, they’ll need a preventative vet visit once a year and you should keep them up to date on flea and heartworm prevention.

Diet

When picking out kibble for your dog, it’s important to avoid grain-free food as this can cause heart disease in dogs. For your Shiranian, you may want to consider a small breed food. Ask your vet for recommendations and ensure it has more nutrients than fillers, as this can otherwise be damaging for them in the long run.

Some owners swear by a raw diet, but you should only do this if you’re prepared to use a nutritional service. Dogs are omnivores with complex dietary needs.

Grooming

These dogs don’t really shed, which is great news for those with allergies! However, you’ll have to brush and groom them frequently.

You’ll also have to keep up to date with nail care. Make sure you trim or file their nails frequently, usually every six to eight weeks. If your dog isn’t a fan of this, provide high-value distracting treats so that they start to associate this process with good things.
