Top row: Monte, Bailey, Dusty
Bottom row: Simba, Mika, Kali
Dusty (born January 30, 2010) lived with a colleague of Maryrita's until April, 2011, when his family could no longer take care of him. He was named "Hades" but we quickly renamed him "Dusty".
Dusty (DNA results) is a Shorkie (Shih-Tzu / Yorkshire Terrier); mostly Shih-Tzu with a little Yorkie and a tiny bit of Pekingese.
Monte (born July 20, 2009) was adopted from the Seattle Humane Society on June 4, 2013. He was originally named "Carter", but seemed to be much more of a "Montgomery" or "Monte".
Monte (DNA results)is a Terrier mix: a Shih-Tzu / Yorkie / Maltese cross.
Mika (born March 7, 2015) was adopted from Ginger's Pet Rescue on May 1, 2015. She's part of a litter of five: three girls and two boys. Mom is Opal, and was rescued from a California shelter.
Mika (DNA results) is a Chihuahua, Bichon Frise, Cocker Spaniel, Maltese, and Pomeranian mix.
She is certainly NOT the Havanese / Poodle mix we were told!
Bailey (born February 20, 2018) was adopted from Motley Zoo Pet Rescue on June 2, 2018, transferred there from a California shelter. She was originally named "Gert Yorkes", but because of her color, we named her "Bailey's Irish Cream" - Bailey for short. The website claimed she's a terrier mix, but clearly has Chihuahua in her.
Kali (Steinhour's Lady Kalika) (born September 9, 2020) was adopted from Newsong Cocker Spaniels & Shih Tzu on November 23, 2020. She is a purebred Shih Tzu, and part of a litter of four - two boys and two girls.
Simba (Steinhour's Lone Star Simba) (born October 2, 2020) was adopted from Newsong Cocker Spaniels & Shih Tzu on December 19, 2020. He is a purebred Shih Tzu and the only one in his litter.
