I am planning to get a new pup. I cant decide between a yorkie, maltese, and shi tzu. Please tell me the positves and negatives and differences. Thanxx.
I can suggest reading up on each breed and then deciding for yourself which one fits your life best. They’re all very similar in that they’re strictly companion dogs. They weren’t really bred for anything other than being a pet. They all require professional grooming, and regularly, if you want them looking their best. So that can get pricey. They all tend to be kind of yappy, with the shih-tzu possibly being the least yappy. At least that’s what I’ve found being exposed to them all. I work at a veterinary hospital. They can each have health problems that are specific to their breeds as well as specific to just being small breeds. The health problems are usually worse if they came from a pet store, just because of the bad conditions they’re raised in from birth and the fact that no testing is done on the parents.
So there’s my advice. Research all 3, read as much as you can, then make your choice. :] But personally, I like shih-tzus the best out of all 3.
