New to us dog

Hi there, just a quick introduction about us. We are a family that just took in our newest and first 4 legged family member. She is a 4 year old ShihTzu cross Maltipoo. That's a word full!
I have been searching and searching for a dog for quite some time now (1 year) and have looked at puppies, older puppies, rescues, SPCA adoptions and Kijiji till we finally found her! She was in a family with 3 kids under the age of 5 and another dog (lab) and a cat. The family didn't have time for their pets anymore and made the decision to find new homes for them. They were nice young people just too much on their plate and didn't know how to get out.
Anyway we brought home Porscha and couldn't be more thrilled that we made the right choice. I knew that eventually the right one would come along. She is house trained, doesn't bark, zero aggression signs and no dominance signs. She is just an overall happy go lucky love able pup.
I do have some questions I will post later though, just wanted to say hi and thanks for the info you all share on here!

Thank-you everyone! Ya she is cute! But we try to not let that get i the way of proper training! I'd like to spoil her but her current weight would not be good for her so we spoil her with the outside that she totally loves but unfortunately it is so cold rich now she lifts her paws. In fact today she lifted one of her back legs then the other at the same time and ended up falling on her face!! too cute…I took that as a sign to go back in the house!

I guess that I did not read far enough down because her she is sweet Porscha! Thanks for the pic and I am looking forward to more. Poor girl landing on her face. My Mom has a Shih Tzu and she stands on her front legs and potties, very funny to see.
