For about a year now, I’ve been struggling with making a decision about my breeding program on where it’s going to go and if I should continue with it. I have finally made a decision. Back in 2005, when my middle daughter wanted a little lapdog we decided to get her one and she chose a Shih Tzu named Molly. That little dog is what sparked my childhood journey of raising puppies. In 2007, my first Shih Tzu litter was born. Since then it has been such a wonderful journey because not only was I able to make my childhood dream come true, but I’ve met a lot of wonderful people along the way. On that note, after 14 years of bringing joy to others with these wonderful Shih Tzu puppies, I’ve decided to retire from breeding.
Oct 2017 - Today I have a heavy heart. A beautiful soul has received her wings. Though I wasn't fortunate to have meet her face to face, missed meeting by only 2 months, I was blessed to have her in my life. She is one of the beautiful friends that came to me through my dogs. I will miss messaging with her. RIP Candy Lynch. Thank you for taking my baby, Flame, and making him a star!!

The very best thing happened this weekend! Flame earned his MACH! This was probably one of the most emotional MACHs I have ever seen. Flame's original owner, Candy, passed away and Joannie selflessly took him and his brother into her home. Though they have struggled to become a team, they DID it!! Introducing MACH 1 FLAME. Love this wookie!
This is from Flame's owner/agility handler.
And look who is listed as one of the top 5 Shih Tzu in the country. What a surprise that my little red Tzu made the top 5 before his 23 month old birthday. Go Tzu. Love ya buddy.

This summer I took an online course called Introduction to Transformational Dog Breeding through Avidog. It was a very informative course and I highly recommend it to any dog breeder. Today I received my official Certificate of Completion. Nessa is one of my girls from my own breeding, so I included her in the picture.
ALL ABOUT US
We are Shih Tzu Enthusiasts. Our goal is to provide sound, quality Shih Tzu puppies that are healthy and are of excellent temperament, so they can give their forever families many happy years of companionship. All our dogs are loving pets that share their lives with ours. We take pride in the pups we raise. Your future forever companion is our baby to care for first and we take that responsibility very seriously. We expect our pups to receive the same high level of love and care in their forever homes as they had at the beginning of their lives with us. This is why we go through an interview process.
Our pups are well socialized because they grow up in a main living area where they are exposed to daily living sights and sounds. From birth they are loved, touched, exposed to people of all ages and live alongside other dogs. Between 3-16 days puppies are exposed to an early neurological stimulation program. This program includes thermal and tactile stimulation. Studies have found by using an early neurological stimulation program that the pups mature at faster rates, perform better in problem solving tests, are more disease resistant and are better at handling stressful situations. They are puppy pad trained.
When you have chosen your forever companion from us, your pup comes complete with up-to-date shots, a thorough check up from our vet, Dr. Thomas Wiles at Pittsburgh Spay & Vaccination Clinic and a goodie bag filled with everything a pup would need during their first days in their new home!
We love to keep in touch with our families and love posting their pictures on our website . We have placed our pups in homes not only in the immediate area, but in other parts of the world. We offer support for the lifetime of your pet. If ever you find yourself in any circumstance that alters your ability to keep your pup, we offer a return/re-home policy. Just contact us and we will work out the details with you.
Our newest venture has been to research the genealogy of our Shih Tzu. We have been able to trace our Tzu's lines back to the lineage of the Shih Tzu's of the early China Empress. We are excited about this.
Another new venture we are undertaking is to start training some of our dogs for therapy work. We have enrolled Daragan in classes at the Keystone Canine Training Club. Thus far, he is doing exceptionally well!
Also, I have started an at home course in the study of dog genetics through the "ABC's Of Dog Breeding" program. When I have completed the course I will receive a certificate from the AKC. I'm very excited about this endeavor!
We invite you to browse through our website. As the old saying goes, “What you see is what you get.” Hope you enjoy!
