Who ever said you couldn't buy happiness, never bought a puppy.
Welcome, Thank you so much for taking the time to look around my website. I live in Wilmington,
North Carolina and I was raised around Shih Tzu's and adore them so much, I could not live
without them. While growing up I witnessed many "bad breeders" and decided when I started
raising them myself, I would do everything in my power to give my dogs the best life they could
have and to send my puppies into the best homes I could give them. So if you are in need of
information on Shih Tzu's or are ready to take the next step to getting one. I will be here to answer
your questions and help you find the puppy that will steal your heart.
I am a small breeder and all of my dogs are kept inside as pets. During the pregnancy the mommy
is put on a high protein diet, along with exercise, she is treated like a queen. By taking extra care of
the mom she is able to produce very healthy and chubby little pups. She is also put on daily
vitamins to keep her nutrition up and give her a good flow of milk. That is very important for you
when buying your puppy, because it determines a lot about how their immune system will handle
things as they become adults.
MY MISSION: First of all would be, not to become one of those "bad breeders", that care more
for the money then getting puppies into wonderful homes. These guys are my love and just looking
at any one of them makes me happy from the inside out. No matter what is going on in my life I
make it a priority to give them all I can. Secondly, I am honest with people. I tell them everything I
can about the breed, the mom and dad, and honestly answer any questions that may come up.
Thirdly, my puppies deserve the good things life has to offer and any puppy for that matter
deserves love, it is my job to find it for them. That's why I look for "forever homes" for them.

There is nothing that makes me happier than when someone comes to my home and falls in love
with one of my puppies and since I've been that person (many, many times) I like to start off a
good relationship with the new owners. I also know that there are costs after buying your puppy
that incur, so I try to get your puppy off to the right start by giving your puppy a two year health
guarantee and that your puppy is up-to-date on all puppy shots and worming preventions before
leaving my home. I also send a starter puppy gift bag that includes food and chew toys, along with
information on the breed, medical record, and a puppy training book.
I was raised with this beautiful breed growing up. My mom raised Shih Tzus for over 20 years. They
kept the monsters at bay when I was a little girl and the first Shih Tzu that was really and truly
mine, "China", she helped me through the awkward and hard teenage years. She went with me
every day to the park and she got so excited hearing the bus pull up, that's when her day started.
She was there for all the good times and she was there for all the low times. When I needed to cry,
she just sat next to me and let me know someone cared...that she cared.  I can truly say that my life
is better because I had her and all the Shih Tzus that I have been blessed with throughout my life.
This is the happy, crazy connection that I want for you. I want all of your memories to include one
of these silly, lovable fur-balls...or maybe even two of them.
I often wonder, with so much competition popping up, how I will continue to stand out above the
looking for a quick buck, then within six months they are onto something new because it didn't pan
out. Many of them do not do their research on the breed, do not have a passion for the breed,
and do not have the patients to stick with it. We have and we do. My husband and I have made
this part of our lives and it allows me to be a stay at home mom to our two beautiful little girls.
Raising Shih tzus is such a passion for me and it is my dream job. I am in it for the long hull. As I
said before, raising puppies has always been a part of my life and it always will be.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site and hopefully to adopt one of my babies.
