Our puppies are for pet homes only,
Please do your research on the Shih Tzu breed and ask questions before committing to adopt. It will benefit you and your furbaby immensely.
Our adult dogs are all AKC Registered. Your puppy will come with age appropriate vaccinations , dewormed 4-5 times given starting at 2 weeks old, exam by a licensed vet and a puppy pack of goodies to help puppy to acclimate to their new home and I am always available to support our new families.
As a breeder, I can not guarantee the puppies' adult weight and color. I can only estimate the puppies adult weight the best I can taking into consideration the parents, the grandparents and past litters. The Shih Tzu breed is known to change coat color several times in their lifetime, especially when shaved down because of their double coat.
Visiting is by appointment only. For the protection of the puppies, visits are only allowed after puppy had received at least one vaccination.
****If for any reason, once a puppy is paid in full and owner's situation changes and is now not able to take the puppy, owner is able to release puppy back to Joiful Shih Tzu and money paid to Joiful Shih Tzu less the deposit will be applied for future puppy. Owner will have two years to apply funds to another puppy of choice.
When is puppy ready to leave
Joiful Shih Tzu prefers to let the puppies go home at 10 weeks of age and must be at least 2 lbs, and eating well before they can be placed in their forever homes.
Release of puppies will always be at Joiful Shih Tzu's discretion for the safety and well being of the puppies. Most of our puppies are not 2 lbs by 8 weeks, and so the majority of Joiful Shih Tzu puppies leaves at around 10-12 weeks. The weight takes precedence over age for puppy to be released.
