POM Shi is likely to have a soft, thick Plush coat with a coarse line of wool along the spine in white and red, patched red, sesame, cream, white, tan and white hedgehog colors. Her feet will be small, she will be quite agile, POM Shi's gait is very much like cat and King's movement with her short fluffy tail curled in her back. Black eyes and almond shape, black nose, narrow small mouth and erect ears complete the expression of alertness and wisdom. In essence, it takes some patience to get the best POM Shi, but as long as you are willing to satisfy the grooming and attention needs of these lively dogs (Beginners), you can build a good friendship with POM Shi.
POM Shi's inherited double hair still needs some moderate maintenance to keep it in good condition. Brushing POM Shi's hair once a week helps to remove dirt and prevent hair from being matted and tangled.
However, POM Shi's brushing procedure will depend on POM Shi's hair length, which is determined by the dominant parent's genes. Long hair coats will benefit from brushing twice a week and brushing every day during POM Shi's shedding season! Apart from hair combing, POM Shi's also needs regular dental care because POM Shi is prone to dental problems. Brush your teeth at least three times a week to ensure that POM Shi regularly attends the local veterinarian's dental examination to keep your teeth in the best condition. It's also wise to trim POM Shi's toenails every week, although regular exercise helps reduce toenail wear, and POM Shi's ears should be checked at least once a week and cleaned with cotton balls and ear cleanser approved by a professional veterinarian.
When it comes to POM Shi's feeding, you'll be happy to know that POM Shi is far from picky animals in terms of food - as long as POM Shi is fed all the time! High quality dry dog food is best for your POM Shi, preferably products containing Turkey, mutton, beef and chicken, as this is the protein rich diet POM Shi needs. If you choose a more commercial dog food, make sure POM Shi lists things like oatmeal, rice or barley in the ingredients to make sure your POM Shi meets his caloric needs. POM Shi pups should be fed three to four times a day and then twice a day, including a breakfast and dinner. Be sure to choose the right amount of food according to the age and size of POM Shi indicated on the package, and keep the food to a minimum, because POM Shi can easily gain weight quickly if he eats too much.
Fortunately, POM Shi is not affected by too many genetic health problems, but here are two examples of major potential health problems that owners should be aware of: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) This is the most common congenital heart disease in dogs. If it is not treated, it will lead to heart failure. Therefore, if you notice symptoms such as dyspnea, abnormal pulse and exercise intolerance, it is very necessary for your dog to be examined by a professional veterinarian. Many dogs continue to live a very healthy and normal life after PDA surgery. Cryptorchidism This is a condition in which one or both testes have been retained in the abdomen after failing to descend to the scrotum (usually 2 months old). If one or both testes cannot be found in the scrotum at 4 months of age, your veterinarian will recommend a routine surgery to remove the remaining testes from your scrotum. This will prevent your dog from developing testicular tumors down the line. POM Shi parents are at risk of hip dysplasia (Shiba inus) and tracheal collapse (Pomeranians), but this does not guarantee that your POM Shi will have these conditions. That's why you have to talk to a reputable breeder before taking your POM Shi home, so you know what POM Shi's specific genes and lineages are looking forward to. Inappropriate "backyard breeders" will not be interested in the POM Shi gene, and therefore will provide little or no information about POM Shi's potential to develop the above health conditions, let alone how to care for POM Shi.
POM Shi often barks at strangers, which may be due to the strong loyalty and protective character of his parents in taking care of the host and family. Pomeranian and Shiba Inu have very different personalities, which means that your POM Shi is either more attentive or more conservative and independent. However, no matter which parent gene wins in the breeding process, POM Shi gene often needs a lot of attention. The influence of Pomeranian parents means that your Ponzi is likely to do his best to attract the attention of the host, and even attract the attention of neighbors and guests by performing cute tricks and antics. Because when you pay attention to other dogs and pets, POM Shi's often feel neglected. POM Shi will let you know that POM Shi will be jealous because of barking and may become excited. So be sure to make POM Shi feel inclusive and social. When it comes to the feeling of being left out, POM Shi people are prone to separation anxiety. When you leave for a long time, it's easy to become bored and uneasy, so if you live alone, it may affect your decision. At the same time, couples and family members can meet POM Shi's attention needs. POM Shi's can certainly be a good companion dog in the family, but if the genes of the Pomeranian parent dog are more dominant (a good breeder will know this and help you prepare), the owner should be cautious about POM Shi's temper around the children. Because the dominant Pomeranian gene will make your POM Shi very impatient, if children are naive to tease or disturb POM Shi, POM Shi may be at risk of being bitten. So it's very important for your POM Shi to interact with children and strangers from an early age.
You need to make sure your POM Shi gets a lot of love and attention. POM Shi should not be left outside and will need regular veterinary examinations, dental cleaning and beauty meetings. Regular use of the toilet also helps to protect POM Shi's small bladder.
These POM Shi are from the royal family and are not particularly suitable for extreme weather. You may need to put a coat on your dog in the winter. You may need to put sunscreen on your ears, nose and sensitive areas because there is less fur in summer.
If POM Shi is well cared for, POM Shi can live to be 13 to 16 years old on average. Fortunately, POM Shi will not cause many serious health complications to your POM Shi, but regular veterinary examination and proper care recommended by a reputable keeper can ensure that POM Shi has a chance to live a long life.
