Ethical Breeder of Shih Tzu Puppies in Arizona


Welcome to Arizona Sunrise Shih Tzus and Poos! I am a small scale Shih Tzu breeder located in majestic Goodyear, Arizona. My Shih Tzus are purebred and DNA verified through Embark genetic testing. Ruby's pregnancy has been confirmed through ultrasound. We are expecting a litter of  Shih Tzu puppies the week before Christmas!


You will need to fill out the application/questionnaire under the menu tab for consideration. Feel free to text or call me at (480) 645-5553 if you have any questions about purchasing a Shih Tzu puppy. You can also email me at, or send me a Facebook or Instagram message. If you click on the Instagram or Facebook tab in the header at the top of the page you will automatically be redirected to my Instagram or Facebook account.


Pricing Info/Program at a Glance

Shih Tzu puppies start at $3,000 per puppy. Please take time to read through "Program at a Glance/Pricing" under the menu tab to help you understand why I charge the prices I do. I firmly believe you get what you pay for!


Quality Program/Quality Puppies

I have put a lot of hard work, time, and money into my breeding program in order to produce healthy, intelligent, high quality, even tempered Shih Tzu puppies. I don't send my puppies home at 8 weeks. I would save a lot of money if I did, but it wouldn't be in the best interest of the puppy developmentally or socially. I keep all of my puppies until they're 11-12 weeks of age in order to make sure they're with their mother and littermates during the critical developmental and socialization period that takes place during their first 12 weeks of life. 


Continuing Education/Awards/Certificates

Furthermore, I have taken courses through Avidog, Puppy Culture, Badass Breeder, Midwoofery and the AKC breeder program. I have received certificates from the American Kennel Club for successfully completing the Whelping and Medical Intervention and Nutritional Influences on Reproduction exams. I have been awarded the badge of excellence for health testing practices in Shih Tzus and the responsible breeder badge from Good Dog. I have also completed the Puppy Evaluator course through the Badass Breeder program. Finally,  I partner with Baxter & Bella an online puppy school to provide clients with first class puppy training options.

Registration/Genetic Testing/Health Guarantee

All of my adult dogs are registered and have had genetic testing to prove their heritage and to look for life threatening breed specific genetic diseases. All of the Shih Tzu puppies for sale will be sold with a two year genetic health guarantee. Furthermore, My certificates, registration papers, genetic testing results and all other health tests that have been preformed on my breeding adults will be available for viewing when you come to visit your future puppy! 


Unconditional Love

All of my dogs are raised inside my loving home and spend their day alongside my family and I.  My pets are fed high quality food and pampered in every way! We consider our pets our family and provide each and everyone of them with unconditional love.


Approval Process

I do have an approval process. The first step is to fill out the application/questionnaire. It's lengthy, but really does provide me with important information that helps me decide whether or not a candidate is a possible match for a puppy. The more transparent you are the easier it will be for me to decide whether or not you're a potential match. If you can think of anything additional that might make my decision easier please don't hesitate to share. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have as well!


Social Media Connection

I also encourage you to click on the Instagram or Facebook link at the top of the page in order to see current photos, videos and pertinent information about the puppies and future litters. I will also update the Puppy Nursery page when a litter is born. Just to give you a heads up, I post the most content on my Instagram page. 


Getting to Know One Another

I may set up a FaceTime/Video conference call to learn more about you and whether or not you could be a potential match for a puppy from the litter. Unfortunately, not everyone will receive a puppy. I only have so many puppies. My job is to place the puppies in the homes that are best suited for them. If I don't contact you to receive a puppy from the litter, you're welcome to join the Interest List for upcoming litters.


Puppy Visit

Those who have been chosen to receive a puppy are welcome to come to my home for a puppy visit approximately one week after the first set of vaccines when the puppies immune systems are a little stronger and temperament testing and puppy evaluations are complete. I'd be happy to set up FaceTime calls in the meantime. Also, I am very good at posting current photos/videos on Instagram and Facebook.


 Policies/Payment Information

All my  puppies are sold on a strict spay/neuter policy. Please fully read the CONTRACT located under the menu bar for details.

The entire balance minus the deposit is due when puppy is picked up. I accept cash or check for the deposit and on pick up day. If you write a check, funds must clear before puppy can go home. You're also welcome to apply and pay through Good Dog.
