There are many shih tzu breeders
that are starting to breed shorkies. You might ask your self why??
The answer is MONEY AND GREED!!
Over the last couple of years
the Shih tzu quality has gone down hill. This has happened because
many shih tzu breeders are NOT breeding quality shih tzus. They are
just breeding any two shih tzus together to get a litter of pups so
they can sell at a cheap price, but with the cheap price you
get shih tzu that are NOT healthy, and some don't even look like a
The fact is there is a
difference between breeding quality and pet quality. But some
breeders don't care. They will NOT keep a dog for 12 months or
longer then spay them and put them in a pet home, because they are
not breeding quality. This would cost them money, and time. You can NOT tell if a dog will be breeding
quality at 8 weeks 10 weeks or even 6 months. Ethical breeders wait
to see what they will be like full grown.
For instance, the photo below is
a photo from a shorkie breeders website that has a shih tzu puppy
for sale, on the breeders website she list her as an imperial shih
tzu puppy chocolate flat face out standing quality.. The same
breeder says she breeds AKC shih tzu's but don't register them.
THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW PUPPY PARENTS NOT ALL AKC DOGS ARE QUALITY
and NOT every AKC dog should be bred.
This dog or any other dog
that is placed into a pet home after 6 months of age should be
spayed or nurtured BEFORE being
placed. Responsible breeders place their
retired mom's and dads go into pet home and make sure they are
SPAYED OR NURTURED BEFORE PLACING THEM.
The same breeder
states on her website she has perfected the imperial shih tuz, if
this a photo of her perfection I would say please start over.. this
dog in our opinion is NOT what a shih tzu should look like.
BOY if this little gal is
quality I would hate to see what this breeder calls NOT quality.
This girl is what AKC would call a liver and white. But lets first
look at her eyes
First her eyes don't look like
they have the
pigmentation under them on the eye rim, if this is true it is a flaw..
Second why are her eye whites
red?? On our website we have a letter from Sherry's vet stating she
thought she burned another dogs eyes.. Is that what happened to this
poor baby? Her eye whites should be white.
Third she should not have that
much eye white show as she dose in her left eye. Her right eye white
is ok but not the left.
Fourth lets look at her nose and
the position of it. Why is the hair on the nose cut so short? was it
all matted up from not being taken care of? her nose is low.. A
quality shih tzu should have a higher set nose.
If this shorkie breeder is
producing purebred shih tzus that are not quality how can they
produce quality shorkies??
Fifth, this shih tzu does NOT
have a flat face. If you look at the mussel you can tell it is
longer, I would LOVE to see a side view of this dog, then you could
really tell how long the mussel is and that it is NOT flat at all
here is the same photos printed out
from the website.
NOW LETS LOOK AT A QUALITY SHIH
TZU PUPPY !!!
In our option this
little girl looks like she is quality
First let look at her eyes.
First her eyes have their
Second Hardly any eye white
Third. The little bit of white in the
corner of the eye is not RED but white like it should be.
fourth lets look at her nose. It
is higher up on her face
Fifth lets look at a side view
to see how flat her face it.. Like a shih tzu's should be..
Let me ask you a question, what shih tzu do you think looks like
a quality shih tzu?? What one would
you want to be the sister to your shorkie?
Remember the bottom line is
In order to produce
quality shorkies you have to have quality shih tzu's and yorkies..
