Default Does anyone own a POM Shi? pom/shiba inu mix

I never heard of this mix before, but I am currently looking for a shiba inu puppy, and I found a breeder that breeds pom shis. I'm wondering from people that own pom shis what they are like?

Be wary of breeders who purposely mix dogs.

Watch out some people may bash your for wanting a designer dog. But most people are pretty nice about it. You can't really know what it will look like or act like since it is a mix. It could take after either breed or be a complete mix. It sounds weird since poms are so small and shibas are larger. Are you sure this is a responsible breeder and not a backyard breeder. Does she have a purpose for breeding these dogs?

I dont think she's a backyard breeder, because I talked to some people that purchased her puppies before and they were all good. but then again they were purebreds, she breeds like 4 different breeds, and I think she just started to breed this Pom shi.

Pom shis are only bred by BYB's i would definetly shy away from her!

if you contact some shiba clubs in your area and they could point you in the direction of some responsible breeders!

theres some shibas owners on here too!

Most breeders who breed more then 1 or 2 breeds are BYB's.

Please keep looking.

Kairi,

Unfortunately, the breeder you are going to is not responsible. They sound at the very least like a backyard breeder. Because of the "multiple breeds" and the fact that they are mixing - they sound to me like they might even be a puppymill.

Read the Pomeranian Club of America's Code of Ethics: http://www.americanpomeranianclub.org/pdffiles/Code.pdf
It specifically states that members "will not crossbreed or advertise for sale puppies that have been crossbred."

Responsible breeders don't breed multiple breeds as pets just to sell, and they certainly don't mix pet breeds. Please find a more responsible breeder. If you would like some links on responsible breeders, just let me know. If you have a specific purebred in mind I can also give you national parent club breeder referral lists.

Anyone that breeds mixes isn't a responsible breeder, just a byb. There is no way to know what you'll get with a mixed breed. Why not go to a shelter and find a mix you like instead of buying one from a byb and funding her "mixing for no reason but profit" home?
