people dream of angels, I hold them in my arms"
for a Shih Tzu puppy?
Shih Tzu puppy or puppies is a huge commitment. make sure you and everyone
in your family is on board before you call or make the trip to a breeders
do not place litter photos on my nursery page due to puppy millers stealing
my photos and selling them as their puppies. After I speak with you and I
feel you are a candidate for a Tian Mi Shih Tzu I will give you a user name
and password to view any babies I may have.
do not in any way advocate the sales of puppies via the internet. I believe
puppies should only be sold through a trusting relationship between myself
and the buyer. The internet is a wonderful thing in many ways but it can be
abused. Just as it is abused by predators hunting children it is also abused
by puppy mills looking to unload their latest harvest of puppies on
uneducated buyers. I allow puppies to go to new homes only after I feel very
comfortable knowing it is a warm, loving home that will provide the same or
better care than I would give.
On occasion I do have puppies offered as companions. I believe happy, clean, healthy
puppies make clean, happy , healthy companions for life. I only breed to
achieve quality Shih Tzu to
compete in the AKC conformation ring. Any puppies that don't quite make it
to the ring are sold as loving new additions to exceptional families, on a
spay neuter contract. . I have a lifetime commitment
to every puppy I breed, providing a safety net for the life of any Tian Mi
do have rescue dogs from time to time. If you are interested in providing a
home for a rescued Shih Tzu that needs parents, please email or call. If you
know of a Shih Tzu that needs to be rescued, please contact me.
you are not willing to rescue, you should not breed!!!
