What breed mix is this? A friend of mine is looking to buy a small dog and someone has advertised selling a shoxie.

Shih Tzu/Dachshund?

I would steer a friend clear of buying a designer mix. Shelters have lots of small dogs looking for homes.

It's a mixed breed. The term is mutt.
There's a whole new generation of people mixing different breeds of dogs and passing them off as some sort of purebred mutt.
Tell your friend not to waste her money and to go check out the local animal shelter. They will have mixed breeds, the adoption fee will be cheaper and will most likely include sterilization.

I think its a mix of shih-tzu x yorkshire terrier.
