A Poshie is a mixed breed dog between a Shetland sheepdog and a Pomeranian. Poshies are very friendly, athletic dogs. They are outgoing and playful. They are eager to please and easy to train.
Poshies can be red, black, red with white or tri-colored. These dogs have long, silky coats that do not suffer from the sparse puppy coat often seen in Shetland sheepdogs. The size of a dog depends on the size of its parents. Shetland sheepdogs vary quite a bit in size. A larger Shetland sheepdog parent will produce a larger Poshie. Poshies can vary from 5 to 40 pounds.
