We here at Shawnee Valley Shih Tzu greet you. We hope you enjoy looking
at our "babies." We call all our dogs, big and little our babies.
My husband, John and I had our share of raising children. We both
came from large families. He is the eldest of six and I am the eldest of eight living children. We together had
six, one daughter and five sons and then the county gave us two foster sons. That is why we have a 14 room home.
We now have them all grown and gone and have filled the home with shih tzu babies. All sizes and colors.
Isabeau, above here, was our smallest. She died at 14 years
old and was 4 lbs. She is what is referred as an Imperial Shih Tzu. Comparable
to a Teacup Poodle. I held back BEAN from her litter of 6 to have me another TINY IMPERIAL. We do breed for
the Imperial now and still get them only occasionally. We do, however, get them more
often than most shih tzu breeders. We do not appologize for this they are a wonderful little
creature. We never breed our Imperial females.
Adult weight is never guaranteed! We
can tell you what we think the puppy will weigh by what the parents have produced previously (if proven). There are
other factors that also come in to play, like IF you are feeding table scraps, etc. But when we tell you that a pup
will probably weigh around 6-7 lbs full grown, that is an approximate weight. We are usually very close
in our estimated weights.
Most of our shih tzu run 10 lbs. or under full grown. We do have
a very fine quality of shih tzu. Unfortunately, I am disabled, since 1996, I am not able to show any of our dogs.
But that is not the really important thing to us. We look for health and temperment first. Then comes all
We take deposits on the puppies at three weeks of age. They may be
visited and held at that time also. Deposits are $250 and are non-refundable. Puppies may leave to go to their
new owners at eight-twelve weeks of age. (If Imperial sized they may have to stay longer.)
We are proud to say that we have puppies in ENGLAND, CANADA, AUSTRIA, GERMANY, TURKEY, SPAIN, PHILIPPINES
AND HAWAII and of course our fine USA states have lots of our little ones. We have started to ship
After careful consideration and some gentle persuation from a client in San Francisco, CA. who wanted one of our little
ones so very much,
we started shipping with nannies and put our trust in these fine folk. We do need time to arrange this transportation
and the client pays for it.
We guarantee our pups for 1 year against any congenital defects.
In over 32 years of raising and breeding shih tzu we have only replaced two puppies. We take great pride in having
healthy stock and puppies.
We can give recommendations, both from our vets and previous customers.
You receive a puppy pack and handouts on Shih
Tzu puppy care. You also receive a sample pack of the food
that we are currently feeding the puppy to take home with you. And we offer 24 hour advice for new puppy owners.
Check out our puppies, expecting mothers, and ask us about the retirement
plan on our older dogs. Thanks for visiting with us.
