Syrus is a 6 year old mixed breed. To the best of my ability I believe he is Min Pin and terrier mix. I bought him at the shelter when he was a puppy. Syrus was found on the street in Chicago. Someone found him and brought him to a local shelter. I got him when he was about 6-7 months. All the cages were filled up with other pets at the time and he was in a small crate by the cashiers. I asked them if he bites and if I could buy him. They said yes I can. He is a Min-Pin mix.
Syrus has a baby swimming pool he plays in the summer. He has lots of toys that he ripped all the stuffing out of. He likes pig ears, treats, and cookies. He also lets kids dress him up in outfits. I don't think he likes that, but it is funny.
You don't need to spend a lot of money on a pet in a pet store. Shelters are the best. He loves me and protects me. He is a very loyal and playful dog. He sits in my lap when I am at the computer and watching TV.

I agree about getting a pet of almost any kind at a shelter or rescue center. We have a Westhighland terrier that we got at a rescue center almost a year ago and she is the apple of our eye (even though my husband may not want to admit it!). She also has lots of toys and a baby swimming pool, which she loves! We put rocks in the bottom of the pool, add just the right amount of water and watch her dunk her head to retrieve them. It's quite comical! Anyway, we do love our pets!

How and when did you get your pet?
Sierra was rescued from a local shelter.

Sierra loves to cuddle. Sometimes, she thinks she just can't get close enough!
I have a male min pin and I have a female shih-tzu mixed with pekingese. They have been breeding and they hung together last night. Does anyone know where I could go to find out what their pups would look like?

I have a pin tzu but hes one that favors the pincsher. He is very loveable and doesn't weigh more than 5 lbs so far. All but one of the pups in the litter look like him and the other looks kind of like a terrier. I love my little dog hes the perfect house pet.
I have a shih tzu/min pin mix she is eleven weeks old and a real sweetie. I know that the hair can be a variety of length on them. However Autumn has longer hair and it is adorable. As shown in the pictures below.
After losing my Chihuahua, I was in search of another dog for my home. I found Sadie who is a Shih Tzu/Min Pin mix and I paid $75 for her. She recently got parvo (even though she was updated on shots) and lived through it, with the help of her mommy coming to the vet to see her every day she was there. I love my little Sadie Bug and she is all about me and very protective. I have 3 kids and she is great with them. She is very stubborn and was hard to potty train. I hope to have her for a long time bc she is my 4th child and I love her just like she is one of my own. She is very loving and I couldn't ask for a better pup.
My wife and I have two puppies about 11 weeks old. We had one about 7 months ago he passed away. He was poisoned we tried to save him but the vet couldn't do anything. We stayed with him for three nights in a row before he passed away:(
I have a 3 month old Shih Tzy/Min Pin. mix. Got her on 10/08/16.
I am taking her out to potty and staying with her outside, and as soon as we come in she potties inside. I'm outside 30 mins or longer.
She runs and plays and I'm saying to her let's go potty, let's peepee. But she does not. Help any suggestions
Here is Boone as a puppy..
Your little guy looks like he could a Min Pin Beagle cross. He is so adorable!
And brittany your little Jack Russel Mini Pin cross (Mini Jack) looks identical to mine!
I bought this little guy from a animal rescue about a month ago. They said he was min pin mixed with a hound. They were unsure of what kind of hound. Does anyone have any idea what he may be mixed with and about how big he will get?
Not 100% sure but he looks just like my min pin Jack russell terror mix and has identical markings to mines 2 brothers.
He is a min pin Rottweiler also called a mincher he may possibly have a touch of Chihuahua in him I have the same dog but eight weeks and one day old
Khloe is 1 year and 3 months old and a miniature pincher and terrier mix. I got her from a friend in June of 2008. She loves to play with other dogs, mainly her sister. She is very smart. She has learned tricks within 15 minutes.

It's possible, especially if she was a runt. If you've ever seen a litter of mixed breed puppies, some will clearly take on characteristics of the mother and some will take on characteristics of the father - or some combination there-of. It will all depend on dominant and recessive genes (this also explains how my little sister is 7 inches taller than I am and we have completely differently builds but the EXACT same hair color).
They should be in the upper 20 lb range. :)
I want him
What an adorable baby you have! He looks all Min Pin to me, but sometimes its hard to tell the difference in Chi and Min Pin when they are this age. I don't see any Pug at all. May you have many long and happy years together!
"Very Cute" breed! I see MinPin... and if mixed with Chihuahua, then he'll be small, but such a cutie! Would like to see pics when he's about 6 months-a year!
This is a sweet baby but the person who bred him should know his mixed-breed. In any case he should not have left his Mother until eight weeks of age. Just love him for who he is.
I believe the dog is mixed with rottweiler since the dog has the same markings, i.e markings above the eyes.
Well it's not even about the color above the eye. I have a full blood blue healer and she has the same color above the eyes also, but the difference in it is the whole body is usually always black and has spots of darker brown on the lower part of the legs and above the eyes. Some Rottweilers have a patch of white on the chest part area so like your dog does. Sorry for the long explanation :P but if so your dog does have other breeds it would be small fractions of one. :)
You have a good lookin dog:D
I have two min pins. And your picture looks just like a min pin with out its tail and ears done. What its mixed with would be really hard to tell, because it looks so much like the min pin.
now i have been working with all breeds and have been doing so with dogs for almost 15 years. as i see now he is very much min pin.and as to the other mixed part untill he is of full age and size it is hard to say 100% but he could be rot but i would be more apt to think of doberman pinscher.but i wouldnot rule out the other untill he is fully grown if you want to send me a snap whem he is a year or so then i will be able to be more able to be more defant on my answer.i do alot better on head on angles and side shots at there leval,if posable and any measurements and waghts are helpful then to. email@example.com darcey fitrakis
Your dog looks like a Manchester Terrier. I had a female that looked exactly like your dog.
Hi, I have a dog that looks almost exactly like yours, mine is a mainly kelpie with a little bit of dobby mixed in. I just love the black and tan markings on them
Hope this helps.
I have a dog that looks just like your dog and my dog is a min pin.
