So we added a new member to our family this week. A Maltese-Shih tzu mix or Maltizu for short. My kids are ecstatic but split on what her name will be. They asked me to share the story with you and take any name suggestions you may have.
Here's what I can tell you. She's 12 weeks old today. Born 9/17/18 . Currently, she's just under three pounds so we're keeping a close eye on her eating habits so she doesn't suffer from hypoglycemia until she gains a little more weight. They say she'll probably end up right around 8 pounds when she's full grown. She appears to have more of the Maltese characteristics than Shih tzu because of her smaller bone structure. Female Maltese typically get to be 6-8 pounds where Shih tzu 's can get a little more stocky at 8-12 pounds.
So with all of that info and these pictures, what pup name pops in YOUR head? They're not loving the only one that I keep thinking, Lil Shih t!! lol.
Max, Charlie and Cooper are the top male dog names of 2018. Bella, Lucy and Luna are the top three female dog names. The names were compiled by ‘Rover,’ which found that booze-themed names (like Porter and Guinness) are increasingly more popular. Popular names for 2018 include Cardi B, Harry and Meghan--with the latter two up 130 percent.
Hit me up here to make your name suggestion and I'll be sure to pass it on the the committee! Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas to you and yours too! :) Mj
