I am a very- sweet & cute- dog! ADOPT ME!!

Benji is from the dog rescue I volunteer with. He is looking for a forever home. He was a HUGE hit at the adoption event today, but didn't find a home. Everyone said "oh, he's SO cute!" or "what kind of dog is he?"

Benji is about 9 months old and is small (approximately 11 pounds). He has a very gorgeous long Grey and White coat that is very soft. I think he normally has long hair on his face, but someone has trimmed it off. He seems to be very low shedding. His tail curls over his back. He is taller than your typical Shih Tzu. He is super sweet and friendly. He gets along GREAT with other dogs and cats. He LOVES to play and is very smart.

Our best guess is Benji's a Shih Tzu mix. But it was also brought up a couple times that he looks sort of like a Havenese or Lhasa Apso. What breed of dog(s) do you think Benji is?

Thanks! hug

My best guess would be Shih-Tzu/Maltese

I looked up pictures of Maltese/Shih Tzu mixes and he looks a LOT like them. Maybe that's what we'll call him.

Any other guesses?

Thanks, again. smile

Might be just me, but from his pictures he looks like he has some chinese crested (powder puff) in him. I see it more in the body, than his face.

I don't see shih tzu, but always hard to tell with mixes. He has a longer nose and delicate face, so maybe maltese or poodle somewhere in the background.

Whatever he is, he is adorable!

Hmm, depending on how big I think there may even be some tibetan terrier in there. That is if he is closer to 18 pounds, not under 10.thinking

ETA... I really do think there is tibetan terrier in there. He has a curly tail and his wait seems like a good match. Feel his tail... is it wirey with lot s of fur? And his ears... are they small with lot so fur?

I don't care what he is I WANT HIM AND I WANT HIM NOW.

*eats heart out*

Oh you have no idea. There is something in that face. If I wasn't in the UK I'd be on the phone with my landlord.

I hope you find him a great forever home!

Black dogs rock!

Oh my gosh he is darling!!! I would like to take him too but I also live too far away.(Iowa) I am no one to try to pick out breeds just by looking but he does have the face of a Maltese and I DO see Shih-zu but thats just me....what ever he is, he is darling! Tugging at my heart because hubby and I have been kickin around the idea of a Shih-zu or Shih zu mix!
