Hello! I am new here! My name is Erin and I am the furmama of a dog and two Maine Coon cats. I adopted my beautiful little bearded baby last October, who I named Fionnuala (Fi-Noo-Lah).

She is allegedly a Yorkie/Shih Tzu mix. She is just over 6 months old now. She is the most darling dog I've ever owned. Very sociable, but just lazy enough to want to veg out and watch a good flick Loves to hike, explore, you name it! BUT....

She has 1) surpassed her breed(s) maximum weight (she is 26 pounds), and doesn't have long hair whatsoever. Shaggy, yes, but doesn't need to be groomed like a Yorkshire.

I believe she definitely has the markings of a Yorkie, coloring, and the lengthy Shih Tzu body, but I'm stumped as to what she is. She has tan eyes as well! She definitely looks like a Glen of Imaal. I've attached current pictures of her, as well as one when she was 8 weeks old.

Any ideas?

How adorable is she!?!?! Its hard to pin point what her breed is, but I definitely do not see yorkie/shih tzu mix. Have you thought of getting her checked? Believe it or not, you can get a Dog DNA Test at Dog DNA Test, Dog Breed Test - Wisdom Panel Canine DNA Testing | Wisdom Panel. She is a beauty and I would love to know what her breed is. I look at her and think that she might have a little Border Terrier in her. Hopefully you can find out. Keep me posted.

Could be a Spaniel x Shih Tzu mix. A Yorkie x Shih Tzu would have way more coat plus she would not be 26 lbs. at 6 months.

How about a Corgi x Shih Tzu?

You have a nice looking dog, and you have a dog who has the potential to be your lifelong companion. And you have a mutt. Embrace them for the great animals they are and worry less about the parent component, because you are loving your dog no matter what the parentage is.
