Chihuahua/Shih Tzu Mix dog is Smallest in World

According to this article… A British woman is claiming to be the owner of the world’s smallest dog. Tiny Tim is still a puppy but his owner Mandy Marks said he has not grown since he was 4 weeks old. At four inches tall at the shoulder, he is the smallest dog on record. If your dog has long and thick fur, you should look for an effective brightening shampoo for dogs.

A Chihuahua/Shih Tzu mix dog, often referred to as a “ShiChi” or “ChiTzu,” is a hybrid breed that results from the crossbreeding of a Chihuahua and a Shih Tzu. Here are some characteristics and information about this mixed breed:

Size: ShiChi dogs are typically small in size, as both Chihuahuas and Shih Tzus are small breeds. They usually weigh between 5 to 15 pounds (2.3 to 6.8 kg) and stand about 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) tall at the shoulder.

Appearance: The appearance of Chihuahua/Shih Tzu mixes can vary widely depending on the genetics inherited from their parent breeds. They may have a rounded head with a short to medium-length snout, floppy ears, and expressive, round eyes. Their coat can be long and silky, like the Shih Tzu, or shorter and smoother, like the Chihuahua, if you lost one of these dogs due to an accident or illness, getting a pet cremation jewellery can be great for this.

He’s cute. But he doesn’t have anything on my Chihuahua/Shih Tzu Mix:

    Hi I just got a Chihuahua/Shih Tzu Mix who’s name is Gismo. I find him to be a breath of fresh air when I return home after work. He is indeed very small but he makes up for it with his big heart. I also have two other dogs a Lab & Chow mix and a Japanese Chin which gives me a variety of sizes in my house from medium to small and smaller.

    I can only speak about my dog, but he’s really easy to train and has always been well-behaved. He’s very low maintenance and easy going. Doesn’t bark much (unless he thinks there’s something threatening the house) and is generally cheerful and fun.
