Looking for particular puppies in Montreal, QC

I've recently lost 2 of my 3 dogs, and I'm trying to get up to speed on where I can find puppies. I was hoping folks here might help me

I have two very specific breeds in mind (and I will include why):

A "poshie" or pomeranian/sheltie mix - I was turned on to this breed because one goes by my house. It looks like a fox, has stand-up ears and the sheltie makes me think it would be a very smart, faithful dog.
A tibetan spaniel - The lady who bred the dogs I used to own recommended this over the lhasa-apso because it does not mat and require constant shaving/grooming


The dogs I owned were all lhasas - very sweet dogs - but they were 15-16 and the last one can't have too long (poor old girl.) Their coats were a constant hassle, however, and one I'd like to avoid with my next dogs.

I want to have two different breeds, different sizes, one mixed, so that I do not wind up with both dogs growing old and dying at the same time again.

Hello LoopyWolf :) .

First, I'm sorry for the loss of your two dogs :candle: :candle: .

I'm sure you can find what you're looking for at the numerous Rescues and shelters in the Montreal and surrounding area. There are so many pups being given up and abandoned, especially at this time of year :sad: . You'd be surprised at what you may find.

Here's a list of local Rescues/shelters:

:fingerscr Good luck in your search.

sorry but this is not a breed , it's a mix / mutt / BYB making so call "designer breeds" to make more money of a mutt dog

Breeds and size have nothing to do with loosing your dogs at the same time :confused:

Please look at petfinder , there's more than enough dogs up for adoption on there ....

First let me say I'm very sorry for your loss.

A "poshie" or pomeranian/sheltie mix - I was turned on to this breed because one goes by my house. It looks like a fox, has stand-up ears and the sheltie makes me think it would be a very smart, faithful dog.

As Frenchy said, this is not a breed. You may well find such a mix at a shelter or on petfinder, and good for you if you adopt a homeless pup. However if you go searching out a purposely bred "poshie" you will be supporting the back yard breeders and puppy millers.

A tibetan spaniel - The lady who bred the dogs I used to own recommended this over the lhasa-apso because it does not mat and require constant shaving/grooming


If grooming is a concern to you then you'll probably want to reconsider the pom/sheltie mix. Lots of grooming needed there.

This isn't really a breed, it's a mutt or mix breed. Not that there are anything wrong with them, just realize their aren't really any breeders. Like you can't look them up through the CKC. I'd check rescues for them.

If you don't want the grooming 100% do NOT pick a Tibetian. They have just as much hair as a Lhassa and they are are bigger dog, which can be more difficult to groom if you don't start out right away. I"m not sure about the mix breed, but I know both poms and shelties require a good deal of grooming as well.

I have this 'breed' mutt dog you are looking for

I RESCUED her sweet little face from a pet store here in Vaughan Ontario. Oddly enough she came from Montreal. I have been doing quite a bit of research in hopes of finding the creator of this wonderful little thing. No such luck so far.

My Sheltie Pom cross is almost 7 months old now. She was born with complications (umbilical hernia) which was fixed after birth and is fine now :) After 3 days of having her, she fractured her front left Ulna. Used 3 legs for a week and then back to 4 the week after. After a week of using all 4 again she fell out of her bed and snapped the Ulna through and through. After 5 weeks in a cast and now 3 months regaining strength I'm happy to say shes perfect! As much heartache and trouble we've gone through with our fragile sheltie pom, I have to say that she is the most smart and well behaved puppy I have ever owned. She has been full of energy since the day we got her and even still the day after she broke her leg and was in cast. she has never changed! she is AMAZING!

If you have any information on this type of puppy from Montreal, it would be greatly appreciated :)

Here are a few pictures of our little Zelda!

5 Months

No recent ones of her at 7 months... her fur is getting much longer... however still quite short. I have a feeling she won't have your typical sheltie coat.

Please check petfinder you can find many mixed and pure bred dogs of all ages on that site.

I second trying to find a rescue. there are many pure bred and mix dogs that need a home and you will not be supporting a BYB meanwhile you will be getting the type of dog you are looking for -- its a win win situation for you!! oh and it will be a heck of a lot cheaper too!!!

If you don't want the work, why not get a short coated dog, there are a lot of breeds like this.
