Below are our Delightful Mommas & Papaws and the colors we produce.We are AKC inspected & approved. That is different than just displaying the AKC emblem on a web site. We are not a backyard breeder by being ispected by AKC. 

Our size ranges from 5-11 lbs  & (some tea cup size). Their temperaments are the sweetest ever.  There are no shortcuts in being a good breeder. We feed them the best food along with vitamins and herbs to ensure their optimum health.Our dogs are all inside not in a kennel. They have their first shot and are socialized before they go to their new loving home.We strive to produce quality AKC pure bred puppies with a 5 yr. health guarantee.I've been a breeder for 46 yrs ( 1973) and my Shih Tzus are the love of my life.We work very hard to get YOU just what you want!!! I know you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Our Little Paws!!!   Dianne
