Hi Elaine, It was nice talking to you. Too bad that puppy was already adopted out. We will keep an eye out online to see how Buddy and Jetta's litter turns out. I am sending you a picture of Lexi. She is the daughter of Buddy and Lava Girl. My parents purchased her from you back in June. Attached is an updated photo of Lexi. She is an absolute sweetheart, totally spoiled and gets along great with my two Shih Tzus. Talk soon, Caryn
Lizbeth Darmetko Feb 23 Just wanted to show you our Christmas gift from my parents they took a pic of Link and had this hand painted for us. I just love it. He is the best little dog ever very well behaved.
Stella today after first haircut. Shih-pooShe is great. Going through her terrible two stage. She sits on command. Fetches and leave it are getting there. Stay and come not so great yet. Got her shots two weeks ago so she got her hair cut yesterday. Now we are working on potty training outside if the weather cooperates. Working hard to get her to stop nipping. Must tell you she Jumps like no other dog I've had. She has already jumped on the kitchen chair and made it to the table but couldn't get down. She jumps and reaches over the 30 inch mark. She's a Healthy Adorable smart delicious girl full of energy curiosity and mischief. She weighs ten pounds at four months. So much for being a runt. LolThanks again for this precious girl. We cannot imagine life without her although I can't wait until next year when we are done with this teething training stage. Have a great weekend Ellyn
9-14-14 Hi Elaine, I hope all is well. Stella as you can see, has many poodle characteristics but her tail is all shit tzu She will be a year old on September 28, 2014. She weighs about 19 lbs and when she stands on her hind legs she's about 32 inches high As you can see she's a cute , athletic and tall character. No one propped her up in the picture. She sits herself upright on the couch all the time for a belly rub. She has grown up to be a loving, happy, funny, loyal, well trained girl with a strong will and mind of her own. Stella is a great watch dog as well. She loves children . My neighbors kids are always visiting. She loves to be outside in the fresh air, play catch and run around. Inside she loves to hide her toys and larger size treats. Some are so well hidden I don't think we will ever find them in the house Take care Ellyn
Hi update May 12,2014 Stella is 16 1/2 lbs, athletic, she's been spayed, quite tall and 7 1/2 months old now. She is quite the jumper. She catches the ball On a fly - no bounce needed. She knows sit, down, paw and we are working on stay and up. She knows leave it., off, ay and no too. Stella likes to please but she loves to get into trouble too. Taking things she knows she shouldn't and only dropping them after we show her a better alternative , a treat. She actually knows cups are for drinking and thinks that means she can drink from ours. So we need to drink from a water bottle instead Stella is GREAT. A real character who gives us much joy and keeps us on our toes too
Hi Elaine, We are really sorry for the delay but we want to update you on Lola. She’s doing very well and getting beautiful and smarter every day. Everybody loves her because she’s very friendly ,playful and specially sweet and calm around little children. She enjoys her trips to the park where she runs chasing the birds. She is a very healthy dog and also very big for a shih Tzu (she’s weighting 16 pounds! ). People always ask us what kind of dog is because she looks more like a Lhasa. We are sending you some pictures so you can see how beautiful and big she is. We just want to thank you because Lola complete our family . Now, we can’t imagine to live without her. Warm regards! The Moreno’s family
He loved visiting the vet and was a big hit with everyone. Quite the celebrity. Other than that he's doing really well. He jumps in his crate by himself and puts himself to bed. We worked on him that first day with treats. He wasn't thrilled at night at first but he is fine now. I tell him Bed and he trots over to his crate! We started to housebreak him with a play yard and wee wee pads in it out on the patio (vet said ok). I tell him outside and he knows to go to the door. Next I'm going to teach him to use a bell! We've been working on sit and place (a special mat for him to chill on). Clancy has the sit command down and getting the place command. He's so smart. Now that he has his appetite back he's very demanding at his feeding times so the sit command is coming in handy. We tried to put a sweater on him, he wasn't thrilled with that. My husband said it was because he was a tough dog and didn't need a sweater. Lol. I clipped his nails today and he was awesome with it. My nieces took him for a car ride yesterday and he was pretty good with it. I'm trying to keep him socialized without running into other animals till he gets all his shots. So have had the nieces and nephews visit. My nephews told me they were afraid they would break him because he was so tiny! Clancy now has his own Instagram account. He's becoming very popular. Haha. His account is The_Clancinator .
Hello, Happy Holidays! We hope all is well with you and your family! I wanted to give you an update on Oliver! He is two years old now and such a ball of energy still. All he does is play and run around. He is the best dog ever and we are very grateful every day that we got him. Oliver is so well behaved, never barks unless he needs something (like treat lol), and loves to always be around someone. He is the king of the house and get spoiled completely. Winter is his favorite time of the year. Oliver LOVES the snow! We hope you have a happy new year and we attached some photos so you can see how beautiful and grown he is! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, The Rojas family
Good morning Elaine, We hope this note finds you well and enjoying the holiday season with your family. We are enjoying Bubbles beyond words. She is so loving and so much fun. She had the agility of her poodle dad and bounces everywhere including right into the tub. She is so fast we are thinking of registering her for a marathon. I am enclosing some recent pictures. Dassie my youngest daughter's best friend also got a puppy and they are taking a training class together. Bubbles sits, stays, comes and without us saying a word she swipes Crocs ;0). Enjoy the rest of the holidays and have a wonderful New Year. The Jaffe Family
Hi Elaine, Hope all is well. Just a note to wish you a Merry Christmas and an update on Lexy and Bentley. I can't believe that Bentley and Lexy are already are over a year and a half. They are such great dogs. I decided to go to grooming school and I've been grooming them myself. They are such a joy to have. Lexy loves to go out for car rides. But, Bentley doesn't like going out. He just likes to go out in the back yard. We love them so much. Thank you so much for breeding great dogs with such great disposition. I've been looking at your web site and I love all your new dogs. Bob says "Don't even think about it" lol Enjoy the Holidays! Sandra, Bob Lexy & Bentley.
pictures of Mila at 6 months
Elaine, here are some pictures of Mila. See how her hair is choppy. I wanted to grow her hair out to look like a Shih Tzu that has long hair but it's not looking like a full breed Shih Tzu's hair. Her hair is also a little course. Her tail is not curled over like it should. I don't think she is a pure bred. She is very sweet and I love her a lo but I am a bit dissapointed because I was under the impression she was pure bred. Also she is chewing on the furniture and I am so afraid for her health. Let me know what you think. Thanks Carol.
My reply, She looks fine to me. She still has her puppy coat give her a chance to bloom. If her hair is coarse and breaking it most likely do to her diet. My friends shih tzu has a allergy and found she is sensitive to grains. Her dogs hair was breaking when it was 1 inch long. She know has a full body look. So please try other foods. Also check into the shampoo your using. It can be destroying the natural oil in her coat and drying it out. Thanks Elaine
Just wanted you to know Jazmine is a very happy little puppy. I adore her. Hope you like the pictures. Happy New Year!!! Julie Moses

He expects someone to play with him any waking minute lol He did well the first night with us no crying, just got up for pee pee breaks. But last night he cried all night. So he is missing everyone. He's eating and drinking very well, no problems with that. he had is checkup at the vet today. Here is a picture of him with some of his toys.

Thank you so much for our awesome babies.

Hi Elaine!! How are you!! I promised you to send pictures of your babies, so here is a little update! They are now 4 month old, very spoiled, fat kids :-) They are healthy, smart, and very very cute!! They have gorgeous coat and adorable doll face. Everybody is going crazy about them. My parents in Russia are beggin me to bring them one ( they have never seen a toy breed dogs) but ill wait till they come visit me this fall, so your shih tzu might be the very first shih tzu that came to russia ! We made a great decision to get puppies from you! I'll send you more pictures along the way! Take care, Natalia & Albert! ( They bought the hole litter. )
Dear Elaine, Hope all is well. I Just wanted to give you an update on Bentley and Lexy. They are 1 and a few months old and they are so wonderful. They get along beautifully and they love each other very much. Lexy is very smart and fearless. Bentley is more cautious but he’s in charge. You know that I want them to look neat and clean all the time and I mentioned that I was a hair dresser and I was going to attempt to groom them myself. And from what people tell me, a pretty good job. Bentley’s coloring is so beautiful. Everyone always comments how they never saw a Shih Tzu that color. Lexy’s color changed too. She is mostly white with some grey. She is so cute. Here are recent pictures after I groomed them. Sandra & Bob
My cat went missing on Saturday, we searched surrounding the apartment complex all over but had no luck. Today Our dog buttercup wasn't herself and something told me take the dog outside and look for Molly.
Buttercup pulled me on the leash on a mission straight to my cat in the bushes.
At first we didn't see her but buttercup cried unwilling to leave behind her cat bestie. We crawled in between bushes to find our injured cat.
God is good and we found our baby Molly.
"I thank you for my little bundle of joy. She keeps everyone on their toes, even my cat Molly. Molly and buttercup have their moments but for the most part they get along. Molly even bathes buttercup."
We are so happy. The puppies are doing great. Thank you so much.
I will keep you posted on more cuteness to come. They have changed our lives and bring so much joy into our homes. Thank you so much for raising such great puppies.
Today at 7:10 AM Hi sorry no words- here they are now.
Duke is a Shihpoo we found from Elaine. He is the love of our life. Not only is he cute (my little teddy bear), but his personality is wonderful. He is very smart and we taught him tricks and potty trained him when he was six months old, he had them mastered. He can sit, give his paw, lay down and stand and twirl on command (with doggie cookies, of course). He used a wee-wee pad at first, but once he had his rabies shots we then took him outside for walks. He caught on very fast. He is very playful, loves to play fetch. He doesn't mind any weather, I guess adaptable should be his middle name. Duke purposely runs in the snow (and we sure got a lot of it this winter)! Erica and Dan are Duke's parents and we sure are glad we found him! Thanks Elaine for always being there. Your love for animals really shows. Erica Marcolongo
i Elaine! Just wanted to send you some updated pics of Miss Sofie. She's doing great. She is so loved and spoiled rotten. Everywhere I go everyone stops to comment on how beautiful and sweet she is...I send them your website bc everyone wants a "Sofie" of their own lol. Hope all is well! Sincerely: Tracey Alvino
update 2-13 Hi Elaine! Wanted to send you new pics of Sofie (the gorgeous Shih poo you feature on your page). She's ten months old now! She's the cutest little puppy; super smart and sweet. Sofie has brought so much joy into my house- especially for my grandmother who cuddles with her every night before bed. Her weight is 11.5 pounds and she's as happy as can be! Keep me posted if you decide to have another liter this summer, because I'm thinking about getting Sofie a friend since she loves other dogs so much! Sincerely: Alvino
Bella rose has finally adjusted to her new surroundings. She is soooooo cute. She's doing we'll with her training and loves going out. She is a social butterfly as she loves both people and other dogs. She has completed our family!
Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful addition to our family. She's doing great, she's so happy and spoiled. She's a smart little girl. She potties on the pads and she's so lovable. Thanks She's growing up so nicely. She has a mind of her own. She's so spoiled and loved by everyone. She had rabies shot and was in a little pain and discomfort, but shes feeling much better now. In one week she's going to the beauty parlor to get her hair and nails done;~}. Thanks Elaine I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day
THIS IS HIS SECOND PUPPY FROM ME.
Hi Elaine, I adopted Bandit 2 years ago. Just wanted you to know he is doing great. I had him groomed today.The new groomer raved about the thickness of his coat and his wonderful personality. Bandit looks like his mom. Will send a picture. Wish I could do another puppy, but cannot right now. Those females born to Champagne and Coby Jack look fantastic! Take care, Ginny
Just wanted to send you a recent photo of Jack. He is doing so much better with his sleeping habits. He weighs 3 lbs now, he is eating & drinking well. He loves to be cuddled & held. We just love him so much. Everyone at my vet's office loves him too. We will keep in touch with other photos & updates if you would like. Thank you for the new addition to our family.

I just wanted to update you on Mischa, the male shih tzu (son of Precious and Chewie moo tang) i got from you last June. He is doing fine and everybody loves him. He has also gotten more sociable with dogs ever since my mom got her puppy, also from you. At first , mischa was kind of scared of the new puppy. But now they play a lot when they're together.
I am also attaching a picture of mischa and latke (my mom's dog) so you can see what they look like now.
I hope to hear back from you soon !

She is such a smart puppy! She's learned to "come", sit & play fetch & she's doing really well with potty training! She loves to run & chase her cousin around the house! Everyone who meets her wants to keep her! Thank you so much for the precious addition to our family, I'm so in love with her! Brinty
Sandra, Bob, Bentley & Lexy.
Hope all is well. Just wanted to give you an update on Bentley and Lexy. They are doing well. They have great personalities. Lexy turned out to be a great little girl. She has a beautiful face and is adorable. She is brave and isn't afraid of nothing. She loves to go outside and she's a real dog. She digs, chases Bentley and doesn't want to come in. Bentley is a sweet dog, not as brave as Lexy,but loves to play with toys, and loves to fetch. Bentley got neutered right after Thanksgiving. Everyone at the Vet's office is in love with Bentley and his coloring. At the groomer everyone gave me compliments on what a beautiful and different Shih tzu he is. Right after Christmas Lexy will get spayed. We love them so much. Thank you so much for raising such great dogs. I'm attaching pictures so you could see how great they look. We want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year! Sincerely, Sandra, Bob Bentley & Lexy.
Hi Elaine, Just wanted you to know Bella is doing well and getting used to her new home. She is so playful and very loveable. She loves all her toys espeacially her chewing toy. Bella is catching on quickly.Bella has been a great addition to our family. We all love her positive energy. She is the cutest thing ever. Thank you so much for bringing Bella into our lives and being so kind and helpful. We will send you a picture every month to show her progress until she turns the big 1.
Ronda and Sammy and Jasper
Hello Elaine, It’s Ronda from Manhattan New York. I bought a shih Tzu pup from you 6 years ago. I lost all your info. I ran into women when I was walking Jasper. You are not going to be leave this. The woman and I started to talk because she also had a Shih Tzu. She bought the pup from you her name is Linda S. Her pup is 4 months old. I asked for your email. I am so glad I am able to write you. I have so much to tell you. I can hardly put into words about Jasper. He has brought so much joy into our lives. I have in closed a picture when his hair is cut and in full coat. He has been doing therapy walks for the elderly. We had put him in some small dog shows, but he did not win. But we still love him. Jasper has only been to the vet for his normal shots and checkup. We have not had a bit of health issues with him. Only one small accident. He broke is nail to short and it had to be removed. He was so easy to train. He does all kinds of tricks. His best is begging. He will sit up for hours. Just looking around. My husband and I have been having things go pretty bad lately. But Jasper just seems to cheer us up. We will be moving soon to Australia in about a month. We just can’t make it here. My husband has family there. And we will set up home there. Of cause Jasper is coming. I would love to come and see you before we go. I am sure you want to see Jasper. Please give me your address and #. I would love to catch up before we go. With all our love, Ronda and Sammy
Up Date On the Gonzales Family
Its the Gonzalez family and we wanted to update you on our little man since his 1st birthday is on may 28th!
He is extremely hyper, extremely spoiled and extremely loved! He is doing well and loves being around other puppies but prefers being around people since he gets more attention, hes a smart cookie! At first, he was very quiet but now he is basically our security alarm at all times of the day! Ive sent you some pictures to show how he is growing and to thank you again! we shall keep updating you!
The brown only comes when his hair is extremely long but then it becomes a problem because he likes to run outside and it gets tangled and messy and it gets in his face so we keep it short for him; we were hoping it was only for certain seasons and maybe his spots would get darker but our veterinarian said that this is how he will most likely be. We miss his dark brown a lot:( when we look at his baby pictures and now we can never believe its him! Were glad you enjoyed the pictures hopefully we shall update you more often! We were actually hoping to bring him around one of these days so you could see him in person and he could see his mom! We will give him plenty of hugs! Hes having a small puppy birthday party so he"ll just be having a ball!
Hi Elaine! Just wanted to give you an update on the little guy we took home about a month ago! He turned 3 months yesterday, we've had him for over a month but it feels like so much longer! He was the missing piece to our puzzle, because our family is complete now! All the fears we had with house training were worries for nothing! He transitioned so well that 2 days later he knew where he had to go! And let me tell you it's a very good thing that there's 6 of us because his energy is through the roof! We feel extremely lucky and just wanted to say that whatever you're doing with the puppies keep doing it! Here are some pictures, we will keep updating: Gonzal Family
Hello, I just wanted to give you an update on the male white and black shih tzu blue band puppy. We decided to name him Cody. He is doing great, he saw Dr. Aguirre last week and he's doing great. We thought he was the quiet one out of the litter, boy were we wrong lol. He is very playful and loves following around my older Shih Tzu Bella. He loves to run and head butt her, which she finds to be really annoying. It is so cute watching him copy Bella and sleep next to her. I wanted to to say that you did a great job raising him and how flexible you were with my routine visits to come and see Cody before pick up day. I can't thank you enough for making the transition very comfortable for Cody and me. You are doing a wonderful job raising your pups and I can see it through Cody. Here are some pictures of Cody, Bella, and I attached to this e-mail. Thank you and I will keep updating you from time to time.
From, Carina Scagluso
Sandra Lexy & Bentley
Hi Elaine, Lexy is doing very well. She enjoys being with Bentley. He loves her and shares everything with her. Surprisingly he is not jealous at all, considering that he is still a puppy. Bentley weighs 71/2 pounds. Lexy weighs 31/2 pounds. They have brought so much joy to our lives. They are such great dogs! Love, Sandra Lexy & Bentley
Elaine, Just wanted you to know Maggie is doing well and adapting to her new home. We are trying not to overwhelm her with too many new things. She knows her crate, the wee wee pad and the kitchen. She is recognizing our voices and can almost find us in the room. She weighed 3 pounds when we took her to the vet an Tuesday and 3 1/2 pounds when we took her for her shot on Thursday. She is eating really well. She still cries at night but that is getting better. Thank you for being so fair with us and I promise you we will take good care of Maggie. I'm sure God gave us to her for a reason. Judy
Maggie is doing well. The paperwork you gave us was very helpful. She is mapping out the house just as the paper said. She pees in the yard but still likes to poop on the pad. But I'm sure she will get it soon.Here is a picture of our baby. She weighs 7 1/2 pounds today! Keep in touch, Judy
Sandra and Bentely
Hi Elaine, I can't tell you how wonderful Bentley is. He is so good. He loves to play with Bob and all his toys. He is so happy and loving. What ever you did with him, do the same with Lexy because he so well adjusted and happy. I hope you are feeling better. I'll see you on sunday, just let know what is a good time.
Feb 8 at 7:54 PM Hi Elaine, I was just looking at your new babies. They are all so cute. Is Pandora related to Lexy? Lexy looks like her except that Lexy is lighter. She is grey and white. I tell you they are such great dogs. They bring us so much joy. They love the snow, when they go out they don't want to come in. My brother's shihpoo when they play the harmonica she howls. so we tried it with Bently &Lexy and they are so funny they howl too, and Lexy howls like a wolf. Maybe it's something shih tzus do. Every time I look at your new dogs I always tell Bob I want another one. Maybe someday lol. When ever you want I'll come and show you how to groom your dogs. It's not as hard as I thought. But there is a lot to do to a dog to get a good groom. As a hairdresser it's a lot easier to cut humans and people pay big bucks without complaints. Meanwhile people complain that it's expensive to get their dog groomed. It takes over an hour to groom a dog because there is alot to do, nails,ears, clipper,scissoring, etc. But they are so happy to be clean. I groom my dogs every 3 to 4 weeks. They are pretty good, and they are so happy when they are fresh and clean. Anyway enjoy you cuties. Talk to you soon. Sandra
I realized I haven't given you an update on Oliver in a while and it's about time. He is a year and a half now and he is about 25 pounds. He is super healthy and strong and his coat is so shiny and soft! He is still the most amazing dog in the world. We love him so much it's crazy! He is also the funniest dog I have ever encountered and anyone that comes in contact with him would agree. He loves to run around and we have a deck that he literally flies off of like a reindeer which makes us crack up. He is always playing and always needs to be the center of attention! We see something new and funny with him everyday. He really is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to this family and we will never be able to thank you enough!
Love, The Novello's
Hi Elaine! Oliver is amazing! He has us laughing all day long with the crazy things he does. He is so smart and catches on very quickly. Training him was so easy! He LOVES to play but he also loves to cuddle in our arms. He is very affectionate especially towards children. He really is a great dog and there is no other dog in this world that would have been better for our family! Thank you so much!
Hi Elaine, I just wanted to update you on the puppy that we got from you last week (the male, red band). His name is Mischa now. We took him to the vet last Friday and he is healthy. He has been having soft stools for a few days. But, now they are more firm. He is either sleeping, or very hyper and playing. So, he seems to be doing well

Elaine, Sorry for the long delay. However, this is the best picture. We are celebrating Priscilla's birthday; even Luigi got in some of the fun. Thank you Elaine for everything. He is the best puppy ever! Sincerely, Priscilla, Luigi, and Julio
Hi Elaine! Just wanted to update you on little Pippa... She's been such a great addition to our family... It's like she's always been a part of us! She's such a good girl... She loves sleeping next to me and loves playing with my baby Gabby... I think they've formed a tagged team because they're both always into something together! It's so funny... I'm so happy she's a part of our lives and thank you for allowing us to have her! She's still little, at her last check up she weighed in at 1.5 lbs lol! All the girls at the Vet look forward to our visits, they truly are in love with her. The first night at home was not bad she cried a little but then settled in. She's learned to do her business on the wee wee pad so that's great for us! Still have more training to go through but overall she's doing fabulous!
"Kammi and Lacie "
Elaine, Well, our barking babies turned one on February 18, and I figured it was time for another update. They are doing just great. We couldn't have found two more lovable puppies if we tried. They love sitting on our laps, and they love playing with each other. They have nap time immediately after getting up in the morning, and after that it's play, play, play. It's comical how often they get into things, and I ask the question, "Kammi and Lacie, what are you doing?" about twenty times a day. I wish you could see them pulling toilet paper all over the house when I mistakenly leave the bathroom door open. They have brought so much joy and love into our house, and we thank you for bringing these furry children into our lives. I've attached some pictures so you can see for yourself how adorable they are. Jackie
Hey Elaine; great visiting you the other day and showing you how Kobie has grown. He is the sweetest little guy ever!... He has a great temperament and gets along well with my other dogs. He will be a little guy as he is only 8 lbs and he is 7 months old.... Fran

UP DATE ON GAMBIT
Hi Elaine, everything is great with Gambit, he adjusted to being home immediately. He's healthy and seems very happy to be here. He's starting to respond to his name and he knows to use his puppy pads for the bathroom (Yay!) He's very playful and energetic and it's nice having a puppy in the house again. His sleep schedule is a little off and he sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night crying for attention but we just check on him to see if he's okay and after a few minutes he goes back to bed. My other dogs are a little jealous of him so we pay very careful attention when all three are playing together since he is still a puppy. I cannot thank you enough for everything you've done, he's been a joy to have and I can't wait to watch him grow up. If anyone I know is ever interested in buying a shih-tzu I will definitely refer them to you. Thank you! EVLYN
Anthony,Maribel and Louie
Hi Elaine Louie is doing so good! Getting bigger and is very playful and adventurous. Loves to play tug of war due to his heavy teething..Eating very good and even enjoyed his first trip to his bath and nail clippings. At first he was up on and off through the night, but now he sleeps through the whole night like a baby, we love him very much and have been taking a billion pictures for a photo album we are creating. Spoiling him with love and affection and he loves it all! I think he needs a friend soon! Ive been telling all my friends and family about your pups im happy one of my friends decided to buy one!
Java went home
Elaine, Just wanted to update you on Java. He has been with us for a week and a day now, and he is doing great! He is such a happy boy-always wagging his tail when he sees us! The kids absolutely LOVE him!!! He is pretty much paper trained already with very few accidents. When I brought him to the Vet for his first check up, everybody fell in love with him! The girl at the desk asked if she could hold him and then she took him around to meet all of the empoyees because he is so cute! He really fits in well with the family and even my yellow lab is learning to love him. Just wanted to give you an update, Lisa
We just wanted to send some pictures and update you on our two adorable sisters, which we adopted in April. We named them Kammi and Lacie. Lacie is the one you liked to call lipstick. They have adjusted very well and are the sweetest, most loveable puppies ever. They love playing together, and they also love to get into mischief together. We're still working on potty training, but I think they are just being divas, since they seem to understand everything else except go pee pee outside. We're so happy we got to meet you and adopt these two precious puppies from you. Enjoy looking at the pictures.
Jackie Lewis & Family
It's been a while and I wanted to update you on Oliver. He's five months now and super super BIG! When you first gave him to us he was only 3.8 pounds and now he's almost ten pounds !!! He has just learned how to use the bathroom outside and absolutely loves being outside. We have a deck in the back that just loves to sit out and sun bathe. He can climb up steps but won't go down yet. He finished puppy school, the teacher said he was the best one in the class. Now he can sit, stay, lay down, and come all on command, he learned not to tug on the leash as he walks and we had crate training. He is still very very playful and super friendly. Oliver loves to play with anyone especially someone new. Here are some pictures so you can see how big and beautiful he is!
+ 2-11-12 Hello Elaine!
Just wanted to update you on this little fur ball of energy. He is everything we could have asked for and more. All he does is play play play and he thinks everything he sees is his, the collection of socks and slippers he keeps in his play area is ridiculous! He also thinks my room is his and when he sleeps in the bed he lays on his back with his paws all spread out with his favorite toy duck next to him. He is going to start puppy school on thursday with a miniature poodle and a one other puppy. He absolutely loves loves loves other dogs and people. We bring him to my best friend's house where they have four dogs and he absolutely love it, especially the big dog they have. He loves to eat and drinks tons of water. He finally is peeing completely on wee wee pads. I gave you some photos so you can see how big he's getting. He's 5.3 pounds the vet says and he tells us we got him from a great breeder because he's a very friendly, very healthy puppy!

LEAH & NEW PUP OLIVER
Thank you once again for allowing us to adopt him. He is beyond adorable and he adapted very well to his new home. He cried in the car for about 15 mins and then threw up but the rest of the ride he was fine. When we got him home though as i took him out the crate he threw up all over me. He has already eaten, peed, and is now currently passed out.
Thank you again so much! Leah Rojas
Emily & Penny
Dear Elaine I am the niece of John and Judy Gilbert, Emily. They recently purchased the yellow band Shih Tzu on November 15 of this year as a present to me.Ever since I saw her in person I instantly fell in love with her! As did my mother and grandmother. The pictures online did not do her any justice. She is too adorable for words. We have named her Penny.For an 11 week old baby she has so much character to her. Penny is playful, happy, smart, loving, adventurous and a little trickster. She also loves to sleep a lot, as shown in one of the pictures I sent you.Attached are three pictures of the dog, one of them is a picture of Penny and I. If you want to use any for your wonderful website. Thank you again, Emily :)

I WENT HOME
HI ELAINE, WE JUST WANT TO TELL YOU HOW HAPPY WE ARE WITH OUR NEW BABY. HE IS HAPPY, PLAYFUL, LOVING AND BEAUTIFUL! WE CAME CLOSE TO NAMING HIM BANDIT BECAUSE OF THE MASK AROUND HIS EYES,BUT IT REALLY DIDN'T SUIT HIM. WE'RE PRETTY SURE WE'RE GOING TO CALL HIM OLIVER. IT JUST SEEMS RIGHT. THE VET FOUND HIM IN PERFECT SHAPE AND REALLY SEEMED TO LIKE HIM. HIS EATING IS UP AND DOWN (I'M GIVING HIM THE SUPPLEMENTS), BUT TODAY WE DISCOVERED THAT HE LIKES TURKEY BREAST, TOMATOES AND BAGEL AND CREAM CHEESE - SAME THINGS THAT OUR DAYZEE LOVED. HE DOESN'T LIKE TO GO OUTSIDE, BUT, ODDLY, ALWAYS MAKES IN HIS CRATE. HE HAS NEVER POOPED ON THE CARPET. I GUESS WE'LL WORK ON TRAINING HIM. THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE LOVE HIM!!!MR. & MRS. LEVIN
Dear Elaine, Just wanted to thank you for our baby Scooter. The day we brought him home he fit right in to the family and was chasing our six-year-old around the house. Both our sons are crazy about Scooter and so are my husband and I. It’s like he was meant just for our family and he has always been with us. We are in awe of how beautiful, smart and loving he is. He sleeps on your feet, is always happy to see us, eats and sleeps well and even though we have had him only two weeks he is completely house broken! Thank you for helping us to bring Scooter home and making our family complete. The Robinsons

THE SIMON FAMILY
I wanted to tell you how grateful I am to you for bringing Bo into our lives. We fell in love with him as soon as we saw him. I couldn't believe how quickly he adjusted to his new home and instantly bonded not only with us, but with our other dog. Everyone in the house wants to hold or play with Bo, so we end up taking turns. He is so affectionate and so playful, I couldn't ask for a better puppy.I also wanted to thank you for all that you did. I know Bo had excellent care and attention; it really shows. Being able to come on Sundays and visit him was a great experience. You were always available if I wanted to call with questions and I really appreciate it. When we're ready for another puppy or if I know of someone who is looking for a puppy, I would recommend you! Thank you, Cathy
Cris & Erin
Hi Elaine, It has been a little over a week since Maddie (Madison) has been home. She is adjusting well to her new environment. She loves to play with other dogs and run around in the yard. Great temperament..all she ever wants to do is be held and be a little mush ball…loves to give lots and lots of kisses. Thank you so much for bag with goodies, the puppy wipes came in handy. The only thing I would change about Maddie is that I would make her less of a princess :o) other than that, she’s a perfect little girl who loves her new shihtzu sister! If we are in the market for another pup, or know of anyone looking for a new pup, we will def recommend you! Cris & Erin
I just wanted to take some time to tell you how MADLY in LOVE we are with our puppy, Madison. She was the yellow band we adopted from you in March. She is about 8 pounds now. Her ears have really lightened up and she looks like a little zebra. She is a little bundle of joy. She is energetic and playful. She is a super mush and loves to give lots of kisses. She is great with dogs of all sizes and loves her mamas! She has the cutest bark EVER! It was a little rough in the beginning training her but every time we see her we know it was well worth it. Our other dog, Coco has gotten used to her and loves having a sister, most of the time…lol. Thank you again and we will definitely call when we have a backyard for more pups to run in. Fondly, Erin and Cris
It's Jamel, I know its been a long time since we've spoken but Rusti is adjusting well. He is a beautiful dog!! I get stopped everywhere I go and even at the groomers his report card is always excellent. He has had his shots already, and I wanted to update with you some pictures. The training has been hit or miss but he's learning to walk to the mailbox. He loves the grass, is very friendly and loves to run free outside on the lawn. He's the prettiest and the most tamed animal out here. I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful job you did with him. Again, if you need anything, feel free to check out our website for your discount: (www.5linx.net/sjfurman n select products) and call me if you have any questions or interests!! You should have received the updated photos of Rusti by now so look out for them and give me a call once you've received them. Gotta go for now but keep in touch, and many thanks again!!!
Our new buddy, Bandit is just wonderful! He is so well adjusted and happy. He did cry all the way home and a bit for the first day, but his crying has really dropped off almost completely. (Who could blame him? He just left his mom. He is eating like crazy! My only concern is that he doesn't seem to care for the wet food. He loves the dry food. If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate them. Bandit goes toe-to-toe with our two big dogs. He has no fear. My husband and I are just thrilled with our new addition. He's such a sweetheart. Thanks, Ginny
Hi Elaine! It has been a week since Scarlett has joined our family and I wanted to let you know how things are going! She is doing wonderful –she is such a happy and well adjusted puppy. I took a cue from you and set her up in my old playpen. She felt totally at home, no crying even on the first night home! I want to thank you so much for everything. My last experience purchasing a puppy from a breeder was nothing in comparison to the experience I had with you.Your puppies are truly loved and well cared for and it shows in Scarlett’s temperament. I also want to thank you for all your help and advice along the way. Scarlett is my first Shih Tzu and there were many things I was unaware of that you took the time to explain and show me. I also appreciate you letting my kids and I come and visit her regularly before she was ready to come home. Thank you so much again for everything! When Scarlett needs a sister or brother we will be in touch J Margiotta

Hi Elaine Just wanted to give you an update on the yorkie blue band whom I named Logan. He is truly a joy to have around and he puts a smile on everyone's face. Do you remember when he would get a little scared from the sound of the blow dryer? Well not any more he is a big boy now and loves to climb to the top of the couch like a cat. I see you still have him on your yorkie page so I'm sending you some pictures to show you my boy
