A Shih Tzu puppy should NEVER be sold before 10 - 11 weeks of
age. We do not let ours go until 12 weeks. Many states have laws
that govern the sale of puppies. In the state of Florida it is
illegal to sell any puppy before 8 weeks.
link below will lead you to a table of states who have puppy
lemon laws that protect puppies and buyers from selling to young
or unhealthy puppies. Education is power.
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 house.
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.
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 Shih Tzu.
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. 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!!!

Vaccines, how many are given and how far apart
and which ones are administered. I start
11, 14 and then rabies.
Do you give them or is it given by your vet. I
administer the puppy vaccines and the vet gives the last set
so she can add them to the health cert when I take them in. My
puppies do not leave until 12 weeks.
Do you give helath certificates?
Florida law states all
pets sold must be accompanied by a health certificate by a
certified vetrinarian. My vet examines eyes, ears, coat, skin,
joints, belly nostrils, bites, and checks for parasites
internal and external.

start deworming at
weeks. Again before going home. Puppies recieve a fecal

stenotic nares? Never! Most Shih
Tzu puppies get "stuffy" while teething. They can be
clear one day and opeing their mouth to take deep breths the
next. This is normal when you breed dogs with flat faces. Once
teething ends, so does the "stuffy" breathing.
How old are they when they are ready to go.
Do you have them neutered or spay before going
to their forever homes.If not,is it possible for it to be done
