About Us.

Shih Tzu Puppies in ArkansasI am a stay at home mother living in the quiet Ozark town of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Together with my families involvement, I raise Shih Tzu puppies. I don't raise any other kind of dogs and I don't work outside of the home so I have lots of time to dedicate to my puppies.

  • Let me first say that "I Am Not A Puppy Mill."
    • I feel strongly that puppy mills are bad for everyone, especially the poor helpless dog.
    • I urge you to NEVER purchase a puppy from a pet shop or a puppy broker.
    • Many of these puppies are raised in horrible conditions and are not in the best of health.
  • I only breed Shih Tzu's.
  • Shih Tzu's are inside dogs and I raise ours with my family as pets.
  • My dogs do not live in kennels, rather they are raised in my home with lots of love and attention.
  • All of my puppies are pre-socialized (very crucial to the development of a young puppy).
  • Each one has been DNA screened and is guaranteed against genetic health problems by contract.
  • All of my puppies come with a health certificate by a licensed veterinarian and have all required shots and wormings.
  • Every puppy has an AKC registration.
  • I strive to maintain the high standards of the AKC.
    • The AKC requiremented for weight of a Shih Tzu is from 9 to 16 pounds.
    • I occasionally have puppies that are smaller than standard. These puppies are not called Imperial, Tea-cup or Toy Shih Tzus as all of these terms are not recognized by the AKC.
    • Please take the time to read the Imperial Myth written by the American Shih Tzu Club. If you would like a smaller than standard puppy, just let me know, I may be able to provide one for you.
  • My puppies are sold with limited registrations and not to breeders.
  • I screen our prospective buyers before placing a puppy with them.
  • I want each and every one of my babies to go to a loving family home and live as family members.
  • I ship all over the United States and Canada and have never had a problem or bad experience.
  • I hand deliver and raise these babies and monitor then constantly. I am very familiar with their likes, dislikes, personalities and proper diets.
  • I help to deliver our puppies and I monitor them constantly.
