She is pretty cute. A dead ringer for a yorkie/poodle cross posted the other day on another forum. I had to double check to make sure it wasn't the same dog lol.

The other thing to be aware of crossing two cross bred dogs of the same kind don't give you more like the parents. Some will likely come out looking more poodle or more shih tzu. This is why these aren't breeds So saying they are a cross is good. But most people think it will be a first gen cross. That is why the designer dog breeders don't make strains of 'shnoodles' etc.. because they don't breed true.

You also might want to have a trainer or behaviorist evaluate the puppies temperaments and review potential homes, to pick which puppy goes where based on what they provide. A puppy who comes out with a very shih tzu personality/temperament is probably going to need less exercise than one with a very poodle-type temperament. Even if you don't do that, be prepared for puppies with a variety of personality/temperaments and be careful making sure each one goes to a home that's going to suit it's exercise, grooming, and training requirements.

Thank you all for the wonderful ideas, I have been reading as much information on both breeds as I can. I was aware that the pups could be anything from a shih tzu to a poodle and something in between, the people I know who would like pups are also aware of this as I made sure to tell them there is no sure way to know what they will look like or act like.

On a totally different note, I think I felt movement today, my dog lays on me or the tiles and while she was laying on me about an hour ago I had my hand on her stomache and am almost positive I felt movement close to her ribcage. It was exciting, I asked my spouse to feel and was told that I wasnt going crazy.

This thread was a pleasure to read. Great responses, great attitudes, people should be proud of themselves

Hope everything went ok and that mummy is well. Glad you've considered the pups futures and are getting them altered early.

Pics!!!!!
