Bringing Your Shih Tzu Puppy Home
Shih Tzu puppies eligibility to go home will depend on weight, vaccination schedule, and vet recommendations. Shih Tzu puppies raised in my responsible breeding program aren’t typically eligible to go home before 11 weeks. As I mentioned on the Home Page, puppies learn essential skills from their mother and littermates during the critical puppy socialization period.
My goal as a responsible Shih Tzu breeder is to do everything in my power to provide my clients with a high quality Shih Tzu puppy that has been given the very best start in life! I want the very best for my puppies. As a premier Shih Tzu puppy raiser, you can rest easy knowing that your future Shih Tzu puppy was raised in an ethical breeding program by a highly educated Shih Tzu breeder!

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. Contact me if you have any questions or need more details.
My local Shih Tzu breeding program is located in Goodyear, Arizona, but I do sell to other cities and states. You’re welcome to come pick up your new purebred Shih Tzu 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 or the Mesa-Gateway airport for free!
I don’t typically use a flight nanny or ground transport, I like to meet the individuals who will be taking my Shih Tzu puppies home! 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 your new Shih Tzu puppy to you if the flight is direct and not too lengthy. This will come with an additional fee on top of puppy purchase price. Contact me for further details.
My husband or I will also be happy to drive your Shih Tzu puppy to your city of residence as long as our schedules are free and you live with in 8 hours of my home. This option will come with an additional fee on top of puppy purchase price. Contact me for further details.
Pick Up Day
Approved Applicants Only
Only the individuals who were approved during the application process are eligible to bring puppy home on pick up day!
A current driver’s license(s) and utility bill that matches the address on the application must be shown on pick up day as well.
Make sure you have a crate that can be attached to the seatbelt. I will provide a harness, but they don’t always fit perfectly on these tiny Shih Tzu puppies. I will also provide all clients with a bag of essentials to make the trip home more comfortable.
Below is a link to some of my favorite Shih Tzu puppy supplies on Amazon. I will send some kibble and other essential items home with you as well.
