We are a small hobby/breeding kennel specializing in family raised
Traditional AKC Standard Size and a few Large Size American/English blend Golden Retrievers and now Shih Tzu.
We got a pet Shih Tzu 10 years ago and we've been smitten with the tiny breed. Even though
they are small, they have big hearts and loving personalities. They live along side our Goldens as one big family.
We only have a couple of litters per year. No mass producing of puppies here.
All of our dogs are members of the family that have quality behind them. As breeders for over 25+ years, we are confident
that we can bring you that special new family member that you are looking for.
Our Foundation Male Benny, American/English Creme Male was 85-90lbs at 9 years old! At first meeting,
you'd swear he was bigger. He was tall and had such presence. With the passing of our beloved Benny, we look forward to the
future with his grandsons. Our American/English type pups are light creamy blonde color to buttery golden which adds softness
to those adoring faces with big doe-eyed looks.
Our Shih Tzu pair,
Cookie and Wicket are the sweetest! Cookie is a Gold with Black Mask 11lbs, Minnie is a black and white, 10lbs, and Wicket
is a full Chocolate, 7lbs. They are great with kids, not barky, and love cuddling and playing with toys. Their colors
vary with each litter. So much fun!
We advocate health
testing, such as PennHip/OFA Hip/Elbows/Cardiac/DNA Genetics and Eye CERF.
puppies come with a 2 year genetic health guarantee on spay neuter contract.
required as much care, testing and thought goes into raising puppies right. We supervise the breeding and whelping of each
litter. Every puppy gets daily (sometimes hourly as we can't keep our hands off of them) handling and socializing. We
realize that these babies will be new members of loving families and we treat them as such right from the start.
