Ask The Dog Guide: “Gizmo Monkey” Dog?

February 17th, 2009 by Dan

Question:
I was wondering if you had ever heard of a gizmo monkey breed of dog?

Answer:
There is no breed called a “Gizmo Monkey”. What I have discovered is that some people are selling mixes of Japanese Chins and Shih Tzus and calling them by this “cute” nickname in order to make them more appealing to buyers. This is done with many “designer dogs”. However, I also found reference to the Mi-Ki, a rare breed of dog that is not recognized by most well known registries, being called the “Gizmo dog”.
