Reserve a Shih Tzu Puppy Today!
Please fill out the application in order to be added to the Interest List. Being on the Interest List doesn’t secure/guarantee a puppy. I still reserve the right to vet potential candidates to make sure Shih Tzu puppies are placed in homes best suited to their individual temperament and their new families needs. The Interest List simply begins the process of getting to know one another!
Getting to Know You
I may set up a phone call and/or a video conference call in order to get to know families on a more personal level. Once I have gotten to know families better, I will make the difficult decision of deciding which family prospects would be the best match for the Shih Tzu puppies in the litter.
My decision is based on how well my prospective families lifestyles align with the unique individual temperaments of the puppies in the litter. Transparency is key in making successful matches. Remember, the more transparent a potential puppy owner is, the easier it will be for me to determine whether or not they would be a good fit for a puppy from the litter.
One the interview process is complete, I will let each client know whether or not they are a match for a Shih Tzu puppy from the litter, or future litters if I don’t have enough slots available on the current litter list. Families that have been selected may place the $500 non refundable reservation fee to secure their place on the finalized litter list. Families will have 24 hours to decide whether or not they want to move forward. If I don’t hear back from clients within 24 hours, I will move on to the next in line.
Choosing Your Puppy
Individuals that have been chosen to receive a Shih Tzu puppy from the litter may choose a specific puppy after temperament testing has been completed. As a Shih Tzu breeder, I don’t choose specific puppies for families. Breeder simply work with families to help them find the puppy that is most suitable for their lifestyle, while taking into account the individual needs of the puppy based on his or her unique temperament. On the other hand, Breeder does reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy to a family if breeder feels it wouldn’t be in the best interest of the puppy or the family. Litter evaluations and all pertinent health information in regards to the puppies will be available to clients before puppy pick day. Puppies will be chosen based on clients place in line on the litter list. Breeder reserves the right to first pick! Breeder may choose to auction off or reassign the first pick spot.
The goal of my breeding program is correct puppy placement to ensure both the Shih Tzu puppy and the family are compatible for the next 10 plus years. I reserve the right to cancel the sale of a puppy before pick up day if I feel it is in the best interest of the puppy. The puppies don’t have a voice, it is my duty as a If responsible Shih Tzu breeder to look out for the puppies best interest first and foremost. If you’re not comfortable with my policies and procedures, I may not be the right breeder for you to work with.
