Darling Husband and I are currently trying to decide which of these two breeds is best for us. This is a really big decision since we plan on adopting or buying from a reputable breeder through the AKC (please let’s not debate about this issue) and having a new dog be part of our family forever.
There is a ton of information online about the two breeds, but I want to hear from actual dog owners or those of you who have personal experience with either of these breeds. What has your experience been with Pomeranians and/or Shih Tzu’s? What is the temperment like in general? Any challenges? What would you point out to a potential new parent?
So far, I know both dogs are good for apartment living and can be left alone while Darling Husband and I are at work. And with training, both have potential to be great companians. I’m fully aware of how much work is required in being a dog owner.
Thanks for the insight!
ETA: I’m fully aware of how to find a reputable breeder and take all the necessary precautions. I’m opening this up to the hive for real life experiences in addition to our other research.
