I don't mind Shih Tzu crosses, although I will probably not own one. My childhood dog growing up was a sweet Shih Tzu mix with a little smush face. He was cute when his fur was longer and he looked like a teddy bear - he was less cute when shaved bald like a rat with a fluffy tail. Calvin was a good little dog. Sid isn't quite my idea of cute, but she has a good heart and is a friendly little thing when she stops alarm barking at it.
In the end, I think my parents (or at least my Mother) is happier with this deal. Baxter sheds, Sid doesn't. Mom hates fur!

I love my goofy Fluff!
