This is ShuShu, she is a Peekapoo. This is not a purebred dog, the Peekapoo is a cross between the Pekingese and the Poodle. They can look like anything, more poodle or more peke or a definite cross of both breeds. These hybrids have become very popular in the past several years. Designer dog breeding is becoming big business and very trendy.
Grooming: High maintenance; requires regular clipping and daily brushing. These little dogs mat very easily so a short clip is favored by many owners. They should be groomed every 4 - 6 weeks. Wiping the corner of the eyes is very important to keep from becoming dirty that leads to harden wet hair that can cause eye problems.
Nail trimming should be done regularly for good feet health.
Ear cleaning consist of plucking the hair out that grows inside the canal and wiped out with a cleaning solution.
ShuShu takes NuVet Plus daily to keep her healthy.
