ARIZONA SUNRISE SHIH TZUS AND POOS
Ethical Breeder of Shih Tzu Puppies in Arizona
Bringing Your Puppy Home
Shih Tzu puppies eligibility to go home will depend on weight, vaccination schedule, and vet recommendations. I don't send puppies home before 11 weeks. Also, I reserve the right to terminate the sale of a puppy before transfer of ownership if I feel it is in the best interest of the puppy. I want the very best for my puppies. As a result, I only want them to go to the very best homes!
I don't ship puppies under any circumstances. Shih Tzus are a brachycephalic (short nosed) breed and can have adverse breathing issues if they are subject to a long plane trip. I will allow a plane ride in cabin as long as it isn't too lengthy. I live in Arizona, but do sell to other states as well. You're welcome to come pick up your new puppy from my home. If you prefer, I can meet you half way at no additional cost as long as you don't live more than 2 hours away. Or, I can meet you at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for free!
I don't usually use a flight nanny or ground transport, but my husband or I would be happy to fill this role if you need help with transportation as long as our schedules allow for travel. I offer the option of having my husband or I flying in cabin to get the puppy to you if you live in a nearby state that offers a direct flight that isn't too lengthy. My husband or I will also be happy to drive your puppy to your city of residence as long as you live with in 8 hours of my home. The last two options will cost an additional $250-$1000 on top of puppy purchase price. Contact me for further details.
Pick up Day
Only the person who was approved during the application process is eligible to bring puppy home on pick up day! A driver's license and utility bill that match the address on the application must be shown on pick up day as well. Make sure you have a puppy carrier or a restraint that can be attached to the seatbelt, a potty pad, and some water and food for bringing your puppy home. Here's a link to some of my favorite puppy supplies on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/31T4PG3CU0ND3?ref_=wl_share. I will send some kibble and other essential items home with you as well.
My puppies cost $3,500-$4,000 per puppy. I strive to produce high quality puppies that are even tempered and healthy. I pour my heart and soul into my breeding business. More details about pricing can be found under the menu tab under "Program at a Glance/pricing."
Also, all of my adult dogs are registered. Puppies will not be sold with registration in order to ensure that they go to "PET ONLY" homes. Furthermore, my pets receive top notch medical care and high quality food. Also, all puppies will be microchipped before they are sent home with you. I feel this is an important step just in case your dog ever gets lost! ID tags are highly recommended as well!
I am a firm believer in the saying...you get what you pay for! My dogs are pampered and live a pampered lifestyle. This reflects not only in the price of the puppy, but in the quality of the puppies I produce.
