Our Mission 

Here at Little Miracles Shih Tzu, we are dedicated and strive to provide you with a well balanced and socialized loving family companion.  We raise our puppies in our home which provides them an enriched environment to increase their social skills and emotional stability right from the start. We introduce our puppies to love, sounds, sights, and touch using early neurological stimulation.  We know that a well socialized puppy is not only happier and healthier but also makes a far better pet for you. We specialize in the traditional colors of the breed with black pigment. Occasionally, we may have a liver.  Our breeding practices strive to outcross our breeding stock to enhance beauty, conformation and to provide genetic diversity. Our puppies are also raised in a smoke free home. Our goal is to provide our forever families with the best puppies possible.

As a reputable dog breeder,  we work hard to uphold breed standards and protect structurally, physically, and emotionally sound dogs, because unfortunately, you will find many unethical sources out there with “cheap” dogs that are focusing only on making a profit off of their animals. They do not genetic test their animals for health and do not take care in raising in an environment to promote healthy well balanced pups. It’s critical to note as well that a license to breed does not indicate welfare — only quality of care can do that.  That being said, many of our dogs have Championship lines. I hear often from clients that they do not necessarily care about championship lines, they just want a pet.   However, good breeders strive for dogs who meet as closely as possible to the standards set for the breed. That does not mean that a champion line dog is perfect. There is no such thing as a perfect dog. It just means that the dog is being bred to have fewer flaws. In fact, the differences in a show quality puppy and a pet quality puppy sold out of the same champion bred litter can be so small that only the breeder or a show judge would be able to see it. Differences in determining whether a dog is placed as a pet or show quality can include correctness of bite, eyes, head, top line, angulation, symmetry and color of coat, coat texture, tail set, etc. The most important things are health and temperament and that is why we health test our parents and they receive yearly veterinary exams to make sure they are healthy enough to pass on good genetics to their offspring. And of course, it is also very important to us  that we find our fur babies the best homes full of love and proper care for the rest of their lives. That is why we screen all potential homes prior to placing our puppies. We want our puppies going to only the best of homes. An approved puppy application is REQUIRED prior to being considered to be placed on our waiting list for our puppies.

Reserving a puppy:

• A puppy application must be completed and approved before accepting a deposit.

• Puppies will be priced individually once born.

• Individual pictures of available puppies will be posted at about 2 weeks of age. Pictures will be updated as time permits. We do not guarantee photos to be updated every single week. It can get hectic if we have multiple litters so please be patient for the updates. Properly caring for the puppies is our number one chief objective.

• Puppies can be viewed by appointment only. Viewing appointments will NOT be made before pups are vaccinated  – NO exceptions. Day of appointment to view puppies, please do not visit other breeders or pet stores beforehand. This is for the safety of the puppies. 

•We are not a pet store where you can just come visit us. Our dogs are not kept in a kennel, out building, special room, or basement - they live with us in our home. Therefore for safety reasons as well as for our personal privacy, we do not allow random visitors unless you have an appointment set up with us to view a puppy.

• I reserve the right to refuse or cancel any sale at any time if I feel the sale is not in the best interest of my puppy.

• A non-refundable deposit of one third of the cost will hold the puppy of your choice. The deposit is non-refundable because at the point you make the deposit, we consider the puppy to be sold and no longer advertise it for sale. Again, deposits are not refundable for ANY reason, so please, be sure of your decision. No puppies are considered to be reserved and are available to other parties unless a signed contract and a deposit are received.

Taking your new puppy home:

• Puppies will be ready to go home when they are fully weaned, eating solid foods and have age appropriate vaccinations (normally no later than by 10 weeks of age unless they need extra time due to slower maturation). No puppy leaves us before 8 weeks of age so don’t ask. 

• Puppies that are deemed ready to leave but are left in our care beyond the agreed upon pickup date will accrue additional fees such as but not limited to: fees for any vet care for additional shots, and a $25 per day boarding fee. No exceptions.

• Full payment by cash is due at pickup or by US postal money order 2 weeks prior to leaving if using a pet nanny.
