I was told that she’s Bichon x toy poodle. But since her groom she looks totally different plus her ears stick up! Part yorkie, part chihuahua? Whatever she is she is the best dog ever! Just curious really

She doesn’t seem to have many characteristics of a Bichon - those ears are huge! Her coat looks more like that of a Maltese than a Bichon and she definitely has a Yorkie face... maybe that’s where the ears have come from too! Gorgeous girl though.

aw she's perfect!

She’s an amazingly bright, clever, confident little thing. She loves everything and everybody! Goes charging up to people in the park expecting fuss and attention. She’s fab.

She's a gawjus wee fluffster, is what she is. She looks like the imaginary dog I had growing up, before my lobbying for an actual dog took effect (ten years before it worked people, pester power is real grin).

Id say a 'westie-poo' or a 'yorki-poo' - groomed she looks like a westie, the first picture looks quite yorkie.

It could be that either mum or dad is also a cross so you might have a few breeds in there. She blooming cute though!

I thought some sort of cross include 2 or more of the following
Yorkie, westie, poodle, maltese.

Definitely doesn't look anything like the bichon I know.

She is a floof ball that is what she is grin

She's a jack Russel in a lamb costume

Greymisty Wed 16-May-18 14:57:57

I'd place a bet on westie...and either Jack Russel or a yorkie? Inclining slightly more to yorkie.

It's 100% cute dog!

Fur looks like a bichon. Face looks just like a yorkie. Spitting image.
The way she is stood on her front legs makes me think yorkie too.

I'd say she's bichon x yorkie

SendYouUpinFlames Wed 16-May-18 15:34:10

Although looking again. She does look quite westie.

She looks more westie/yorkie thank bichon. They have more rounded faces and she has a square face.

Sorry I'm changing my predicament. I don't think she's bichon at all. Her fur looks like a bichon but with the rest of her it looks like westie fur.

I'm going to say she's westie x yorkie

Ears like a westie

TheBogWitchIsBack Fri 18-May-18 16:19:21

Westie x Pomeranian?

You can get a dog dna test for £60!

Paddingtonthebear Fri 18-May-18 16:22:05

She does look Westie, I would say westie x Yorkie or similar

Fortheloveofscience Fri 18-May-18 16:24:49

Cute! I reckon Westie x something smaller - definitely not poodle x bichon grin.

ThespianTendencies Fri 18-May-18 16:53:43

I’ve ordered a DNA kit so I will know soon. I’ll post it here so we can see who’s closest! My betting is a mix of all suggestions! She’s an amazing, confident, feisty little thing, that’s for sure!

She has a similar face to my sisters pup, she's a Pom x jack Russel ..the ears are saying jack Russel or chihuahua!
Interesting mix, very cute pup!

ThespianTendencies Fri 18-May-18 18:36:57

I cannot wait to find out! There's definitely something curly in there - Bichon or poodle - her fur is a hairy fleecy thing when it is longer.

We had a doggy dna test done on our pup, it was very revealing. (Mum was a pregnant stray, so no idea of dads origin) It turns out she is a Collie, German Shepherd, Terrier, Rottweiler, Staffy cross... not that she really looks like any of those! Interested to see what yours says smile

ThespianTendencies Wed 20-Jun-18 23:13:00

Got the DNA tests back and......drum roll please.......She is 65% Yorkshire Terrier 24% Bichon Frise and the rest is terrier and sighthound shock. But the terrier and sighthound bit is way back in her heritage! So her parents and grandparents and great grandparents were yorkies or bichons! Now when I get stopped a million times in the park I can tell people what she is!
