By now, you may have already learned about Shih Tzus’ history being an ancient breed from China.

Their presence was in paintings since 624 AD. 

Many theories about the breed however it’s not disputed they were in the Chinese court.  Bred and selected with great care. 

Their only duty was to be a loving pet and family companions as they continue to be today!


We’re glad your here to visit. 

I am Jeri and my husband is Jackson , we live with our sweet Shih Tzu furbabies in our home… 

you guessed it, in Arizona!


 Back in December 2005 we moved into our straw-bale home Jackson built for us, in Surprise, Arizona!


We work in our home and this allows one of us to be with our dogs and puppies 24-7!   I’m a hairstylist and antique dealer.  Jackson is a buckle/silversmith, and in case you don’t know what that is... He creates hand crafted custom sterling bracelets and belt buckles.  So if your interested an unique gift, Jackson is the man to see!

It's always our pleasure to share our Shih Tzu family!  They live in our home, socialized and loved from the start.  Couldn’t be any other way, with our grandsons here always lovin’ on a puppy!


Some of our dogs are Champion sired, many have Champion lines, some do not, although they ALL have sweet dispositions! 


Our dogs and puppies are all AKC registered , some Standard AKC size 9-11 pounds, some the smaller tiny Imperial size 4 up to 9 pounds.  So there is no misunderstanding they are all the same breed, Shih Tzu!


In the past our 9-13 pound Shih Tzus were often having puppies that matured at only 4 up to 9 pounds. 

We were not breeding to create tiny Imperial size although... God just planned it that way!  


American Shih Tzu Club lists the standard size as 9 to 16 pounds. 

Some of our Momma’s and Papa’s are on smaller end of the AKC weight chart, 9 to 12 pounds and some of our Momma’s and Papa’s are tiny what is referred to as Imperial, only 5 up to 9 pounds. 

Make no mistake no matter their size they are all the same sweet breed, Shih Tzu!


We have so much fun raising our Shih Tzus!  

They are so  interesting to watch each week as the puppies develop physically and their little personalities emerge. 

We truly enjoy the whole process!


We’ve carefully selected our dogs.  We also carefully select which ones will breed together to produce the best quality puppies possible with good confirmation and sweet dispositions.  Our puppies are healthy through proper breeding, nutrition and love.


Our puppies are all AKC American Kennel Club registered.  We offer limited AKC registration to loving FurEver homes which means they are being sold as pets and not to be shown or bred. 

Our pricing depends on pedigree, color, confirmation, male or female, size and on each individual puppy.  All pricing is subject to change unless a puppy deposit has been made.  Please note, no puppy is considered sold until a deposit is placed.    

Our parents colors are solids and partis, we have solid cream, solid black, solid red, solid chocolate, silver brindle, chocolate/white, red liver/white, brindle/white, silver/gold/white, gold/black mask, gold/white, and black/white.

Many amazing colors, some considered rare! 


Our puppies come with a Health Guarantee, AKC registration papers, they’re Always Vet-checked, dewclaws removed, current vaccinations, de-wormed, on their way to being paper trained, as well as breeder support.
