Pooshi

POOSHIS (Cross between a Poodle and a Shih Tzu)

Why did Puppies Up North choose POOSHIs?

Here are some great example pictures why I choose to raise POOSHI’s The Third breed that we added was POOSHI’s…we still love the Miniature Labradoodles and the Spoodles but we love that the Pooshi is very intelligent, dignified, lovable, affectionate, sociable and cheerful.  The Pooshi gets along well with other household pets and children.  What more could you ask for when combining two beautiful dogs…the poodle and the Shih Tzu…we have both parents and they are great around the other dogs!

We at Puppies up North have done a lot of research about this designer breed and love what people are saying about them and love the personality of them. We also feel that these puppies are a pretty close match to the looks, to the personality and the allergy friendly aspect of our Pooshi! It has been said that these dogs will be the designer breed of the millennium.  Don’t miss out on getting one of these precious puppies from Puppies Up North!!

What is a Pooshi?  A Pooshi is a hybrid breed that is developed by crossing a Miniature Poodle to a Shitzu (poo-shi).  Spoodles are specifically bred for their wonderful temperaments. They are a medium sized breed (about 14-16 inches at the shoulder) with semi long non-shedding hair and long soft ears. We at Puppies Up North have two Shitzu mommas (who are sisters).

Size: Height: 8 to 14 inches; Weight: 8-15 pounds

Coat: The Pooshi coat is wavy, normally curlier than the Shih-tzu but not as curly as the Poodle. The coat is little-to-no shedding.

Character: The Pooshi is very loving, very happy and playful and they get along with other pets.

Temperament: Pooshi are more active and athletic. They seem to take the best from both breeds.

Care: Pooshi will require occasional grooming.

Training:  Very Intelligent dogs, and very easy to train!

Activity: Pooshi do not require a lot of exercise. They get sufficient exercise just by playing with their owners. They enjoy walks and/or backyard play.

 

 

 

Size: The Spoodle can come in a wide variety of sizes depending on the Poodle breed used.   Here at Puppies up North we used the Miniature Cockapoo weighs 12-20 lbs (5-9 kg)  The Miniature Cockapoo is most common, with a shoulder height of 14-15 in (35-38 cm). Most have large, dark brown eyes and dark noses.  A true Spoodle will NOT have a docked tail.

Coat: The Spoodle has a coat which combines aspects of the Poodle and Cocker Spaniel coats. It may be very curly, flat, or anywhere in between. The Spoodle can be a wide variety of colors such as white, cream, tan, or a mix thereof. A variety of coat colors and textures can appear in the same litter.

Character: The Spoodle is known for its pleasant temperament, loyalty and patience. Spoodles are outgoing and eager for human companionship and attention as well as they love to give attention.

Temperament: The Spoodle disposition makes it an ideal family pet. The Spoodle is gentle and loving with children and enjoys the company of all living things, including other dogs and pets.

Care: Spoodles do not shed, but require a groom about every 6 months.  Like other hybrids, Spoodles tend to have fewer health problems than most purebreds (known as ‘hybrid vigor’). Potential health problems are hip dysplasia (malformed hip joint which can cause lameness or arthritis), luxating patella (dislocated knee), ear infections, and eye problems such as PRA and cataracts.  Here at Puppies Up North, our mommas and daddy’s are checked regularly for any potential health problems.

Training: Spoodles are very intelligent and eager to please, which usually makes training a simple procedure. A firm approach is required. House training the Spoodle is relatively easy.

Activity: The Spoodle has low exercise demands. A small yard where it can run freely and an occasional walk, in addition to its indoor antics, will keep it happy. The Spoodle is a good breed for an apartment or condominium.

How can I tell them apart?  When our puppies are first born, I put a piece of yarn around their neck. This yarn aids in keeping track of their growth, their “input and output”, their  personalities, their type of hair, etc.

Lucy - PinkOrange Tag - F - 5 wksHow much time are you around your puppies?  Are they socialized?  I spend a minimum of 5-6 hours a day with these puppies: holding, changing soft blankets, cuddling, taking care of mama and her needs, teaching, tickling, cuddling, working through their 100 point socialization skills, cuddling, potty training, cuddling, … oh and did I say I love to cuddle with them?  Ha.  I also have a girlfriend that has grandchildren who love to spend time with my puppes…as well as my father is in a assisted living so i take them there too..

What are the parents like?  We make every effort to make sure that our mamas are fed and watered properly before giving birth. We assure them daily that they are okay and that this is a great thing. Often when dogs are pregnant, they are very self conscious and very cuddly. The mamas almost act like puppies again and stay close on my heels to seek constant attention. My husband and I make sure that they get “extra loves” during their time of pregnancy.

What will the puppies come with?  All puppies will come with lots of love to give. They will be well socialized and up-to-date with their shots. They will have been given the proper doses of worming medications, will have an excellent vet check, their dew claws will have been removed, and last but not least, we will also be available for the LIFETIME of the puppy for any questions you may have.

Puppy comes with a PUPPY BASKET full of things puppies love: a toy, Life Abundance Starter bag, starter Treats, a blanket that has been rubbed on mama for that great “mama smell” when they’re lonely, shampoo, poop pick up bags, and a full detailed health record showing all the things we did for your puppy to keep it strong and healthy (record of shots, wormers, nail clips, vet checks, Bordatella given, etc.)!

What are we looking for in our adoptive families?  We are looking for wonderful families with lots of love to give our puppies. We look for owners who promise to provide proper food, shelter, safety, exercise, medical needs kept up-to-date, and a few tummy rubs.

What do we feed our mommas and our puppies?  We give our mommas the best there is for dog food and supplements!  We feed Life Abundance.  Life Abundance can be shipped directly to your home!  There are tons of other products that Live Abundance offers such as Porky Puff treats, Dental treats, antixoident treats, Healthy hearts, along with great smelling shampoo, a spray lavender mist for calming puppies after shots, a between bath spray to keep them smelling fresh.  We love Life Abundance.
