Hi SophBan,

Welcome! I'd like to encourage you to write a bit more about your family, your previous experience owning dogs, and desired qualities in a dog. That would help us a lot in giving your some suggestions.

I was really curious how you came up with "Jack Tzu." Does your local humane society have a dog fitting that description, or did you come across this mix on a website advertising puppies? If the latter is the case, that it's quite certain that the puppy would be coming from a puppy mill. These two threads will help you be able to distinguish between a reputable breeder and a puppy mill:

Note that almost all, if not all, puppy breeders advertising "designer dogs," (i.e. mixed breeds with fancy names) are highly questionable.

I don't mean any breed snobbery, by the way. I have a wonderful mixed breed dog myself. He's a Pekingese - Shih Tzu mix, but I adopted him from my local shelter.

Anyways, please feel welcome to ask more questions, and best of luck to you.
