.This is Lola. But you knew that.
I know she is part Shih Tzu and part Terrier, but I've been unsure what kind of terrier.
My first guess was Westie.
And then I looked at the Jack Russell, and I thought, maybe ....
But I'm definitely back to Westie.
So what do you think?
As she has aged, her body has become thicker or more sturdy, and her legs are more proportionate with the Westie. It is easy to sort out the features of the Shih Tzu from the various Terrier characteristics, but the Terrier characteristics are more difficult to define. Such as the ears.... clearly ST. The nose .... Terrier, but which? It definitely looks more like the W than the JR. Her coat .... a cross between ST & Westie, with no resemblance to the JR. Her tail is a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Westie, curlier than the W, but not as full as the ST. Her general build, as mentioned above, is more like the W with some ST characteristics than the JR.
Yeah, I'm calling her a Tzu-West. Case closed.
