Quality Shih Tzu Breeder
I thought it would be nice to tell you a little bit about me! I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I taught 1st grade before my children were born. My favorite hobbies are reading, playing outdoors with my dogs, and raising high quality Shih Tzu puppies!
My husband is a business professor at Arizona State University. He is also a motivational speaker and a business consultant. He is of Greek decent and loves to cook in his spare time! My oldest son is a college graduate. He recently took the MCAT in hopes of being a doctor someday. I also have a teenage son and daughter that are very busy being typical teenagers.
I took a break from teaching shortly after my first child was born to stay home and care for my children. As my children grew older we decided to bring a puppy into the family. We brought home Izzy a Teddybear breed. Teddybears are a small/toy breed known to be hypoallergenic. Two of my three children are allergic to dogs.
To make a long story short,
My husband and I found dog raising very pleasurable. Soon enough, we brought home a female Shih Tzu puppy. We instantly fell head over heals in love with the Shih Tzu breed. The amazing Shih Tzu temperament and easy going nature is hard to beat.
One Shih Tzu quickly became two, then three, then four, as the saying goes, the more the merrier! I have now reached a chapter in my life where my children are almost grown. I thought about going back to teaching, but home is where my heart is…with my family which includes my dogs!
My Shih Tzu Family

I have spent countless days acquiring as much information about Shih Tzu breeding as possible. I have read everything I have been able to get my hands on! My bookshelf can attest to this! As I mentioned on the home page, I have taken the Whelping & Medical Intervention exam and the Nutritional Influences on Reproduction exam through The American Kennel Club. I’ve also taken courses through Avidog, Puppy Culture, Midwoofery and the Empowered Breeder (BAB) program. For a more in-depth list of my breeder education click here.
Responsible Breeding Program
My main goal as a responsible Shih Tzu breeder is to provide my customers with healthy, high quality Shih Tzu puppies. I want all the puppies that are brought up in my home to bring as much joy and unconditional love to new families as our pets have given us over the years!
