This sweet little Daisy Dog is a miniature-mixture of all our favourite pint-sized dogs. This dog combines the intelligence of the Poodle with the curious Bichon Frise, and outgoing Shih Tzu to make a fun and playful family dog. He is a great choice for apartment dwellers as he loves to play and enjoys new people and rarely barks.
The Daisy Dog combines the best of both the Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise in one dog
The Daisy Dog is a mix breed dog. It dates back to the 1980s, when Designer Dogs became more popular. The breeding of two purebred dogs could produce puppies that are smaller, gentler, or hypoallergenic than the parent breeds.
The Daisy Dog is considered the “dog’s breakfast” in terms of lineage. She is not eligible to join American Kennel Club’s (AKC) list of pure-breds. However, his parent breeds are all in good standing. The Poodle joined AKC’s “nonsporting” group 1887. In 1972, the Bichon Frise was named to the same group. The Shih Tzu joined in 1969.
Food & Diet
High energy Daisy Dogs are small to medium in size and require food that is appropriate for his age, activity level and size. You should choose a nutritious-rich, low-carb kibble. He is prone to joint problems and weight gain so be sure to not give him too much. Avoid high-fat meals for Poodles and feed him at least 2 to 3 meals per day.
Daisy Dogs are intelligent, eager to please, and quick to follow commands. This makes them easy to train. Socialization and obedience training should be easy as Daisy Dogs respond well to verbal praises and treats.
You can expect your Daisy Dog to reach adulthood at around 10-30 pounds depending on the breed he is bred from.
Daisy Dog is a friendly, playful dog who loves to play and gets along with other animals. He rarely barks so he’s not a good watchdog. He is a happy, outgoing dog who enjoys being accompanied by humans and cuddling on a lap. He is not able to be left alone for too long so he needs a friend or a dog walker.
