Most of the people who have one of my puppies have either came back for a 2nd puppy a year later, or have been recommended by someone. And if they have never met me before they usually are on the phone 2 or 3 times so we get to know each other. I enjoy these phone calls so don't be afraid to call and don't let this application scare you. These questions I am asking are important questions to anyone considering any pet.

If you are a responsible person this process will not bother you.

 I do love my dogs and do care where their puppies end up.

 I only want loving homes for my babies. And I know what I look for in families.

I am here 24/7 for your concerns before and after purchasing your puppy/dog. And hope that you do call if you have any questions.

When I got Chip and Dale,  I knew nothing of this breed. And if you care you learn. You learn because you want to do what is best for your puppy, which in the long run is also best for you both.

A copy of the application is available just contact me and I will send it to you.

Most importantly " Tell me about yourself" and why a Shih Tzu????

An accepted application

I only take 4 names per litter, once I have approved your application and accepted your deposit  your name  will be put on the  " Litter of your choice" List.  Picking is done in order that your deposit has been received. It does not matter whether you want to pick a boy or a girl, but since I have other families who also are looking for a puppy or someone who did not get the puppy of their choice on  litter that might have been born around the same time frame. I expect to know as soon as the puppies are born, what you want. Male??? Female??? I want everyone to be happy. I won't ask you to pick your puppy before the others pick, but if you have a preference " Please let me Know" This way if you have picked a boy and there were only 2 boys and someone from another didn't get their  boy. I can tell them, either yes. That 1st or 2nd boy has become available, or I can tell them. I am sorry. There are no boys available. This is a common  courtesy  DEFINITION " the showing of politeness in one's attitude and behavior toward others." This family can instead of waiting for weeks for you to decide, and we all know what even waiting for a puppy is like " It's a happy time, but it's also a stressful time" Filled with excitement and hope. Imagine that family who wanted a girl, but only boys were born. And there just might be a girl available for them on the list your on. Please be courteous . Think about these other families too. If you are on my list and have given me your deposit and your are not willing to at least  to let me know whether you want a boy or a girl  so I can try to make sure everyone gets their puppy who wanted one. Your deposit will be forfeited, and you will be removed from the list totally. " Additional note" As the breeder of these wonderful little Angels, I  listen to my heart and my gut. This is only an application  which gives me a feel of the family I have accepted on the waiting list. No sale is final  or promise of sale is final, until the puppies are ready to leave and final payment is made, and both me " The Breeder and You the Buyer have signed the contract/ 5 year health guarantee, which is on the day the puppy is handed over to you.    Along with this payment you will receive a contract from me and a 5 year health guarantee. A copy of the contract is  sent to you prior to the final day to either approve or not, or ask any questions you may have. Once that contract is signed by you and returned to me, we are well on our way to you becoming the perfect family and have the criteria I look for in finding homes for our wonderful babies. We have soooooo many wonderful families. Thank you all for your patience and understanding that its my responsibility to these wonderful little guys that I be vigilant in finding the  perfect home for our babies.

Picking a puppy usually begins aprox 6 weeks old, and if there looks to be tinies within any of the litters, those puppies will be held back and placed on the Tiny list and at a later date after special  health testing for tinies as well as spay or nutered those puppies will be priced according to the small size puppies " 

We do carry small lines in a few of our girls and boys and evaluation of those puppies can't usually be determined until 6 weeks or beyond. They are all born the same, all behave the same and it's not until much later that this can be determined. I don't breed for tinies " It just happens"

investigated and, if false information has been given, or information I would want to know about " Like you have or plan to have other dogs, this is something I need to know when making my final decision to either place you on the list " Or Not"  Shih Tzu get along great with other pets, but there are dangerous breeds that I  think are not a good match.
