I've been meaning to write to you for awhile now to not only thank you for the adorable photo of Skye you posted on your website (she must be famous by now) but to tell you how absolutely wonderful Skye is and how much I thank you for being a very special and spectacular dog breeder. I would recommend you to the world!
When I brought Skye home she weighed 2 Lbs. 2 oz. and at last week's vet appointment she weighed 3 lbs. 4 oz. and everyone at the clinic adores her. She already goes up and down my back steps, runs like the wind throughout my back yard, and I think she would play with her toys 24/7. She is a joy!
My very best wishes to you - Kris and Skye
❤️ Love, jean, Baby Bitty & Gingerbread Baker!
Hello Elaine, just an update about Asia Ming brandi. She is a beauty, loves her car seat and traveling. We are so happy with her she is so smart❤️
Rascal! I named him in about five seconds, while I was trying out names I kept saying, hey, what are you doing, you little rascal, and it just fit! Elaine, he’s such a baby! He has such attitude and is such a scrumptious love 💗💗
Rascal not quite six months old not six pounds yet. I groom him myself lol! When he was a baby his vet cut his eye hair because he had a clogged eye duct otherwise he would have had a perfect coat! He is just so perfect. He is so smart and loving. Is is quite the protective little guy but so gentle with the babies .
Adelaide is doing very well . She is the sweetest girl and is so attached to my mom . She loves being held and licking everyone's face lol
I just want to thank you for Snickers. I can’t believe how well she adjusted..she’s so loving and loves to get comfy ...especially by our neck or in one of the many beds and even the toy box...she loves every toy and will even bring it back..she’s eating well ..no accidents, she will go on the pad and recently going outside as well. We absolutely love her ...thank you again 🐶❤️

Hi Elaine. I’m sorry this is so late. I hope you get these pictures. We adopted this adorable little guy from you April 15th. We named him rascal in a few short minutes of having him home! I say that with love. He is certainly a little rascal, incredibly smart,curious and amazing. He has been to the vet numerous times for his checkups immunizations and finally neutering. Rascal is extremely smart and so loving. He means the world to us. I am a little curious about one thing, his size. He is six months and just reached five pounds (I’m not complaining just wondering-my pepper was only 8 pounds) is he smaller than the others? I wish you could really see how beautiful he really is. He doesn’t photograph well lol!, anyway, I wanted to call you so many times to tell you how wonderful he is and how much I love him. Thank you, Caroline Dollard

Bailey's new carrier came
Hi Elaine...hope this finds you well. We picked up Sammie in August of 2016. She has changed our lives. Here is a picture of her with her sister Gracie Bell. Thank you for blessing us with Sammie Rose!
Good afternoon! We hope this email finds you and your family well. It’s been a while since we’ve sent an update on Oliver and Olivia so I wanted to send some photos. Olivia is going to be 4 in August. She spends most days lounging on someone’s lap. Oliver is going to be 8 in November and he has turn into such a little mush! They are both still the light of everyone’s eyes and are big brother/sister to a human baby! My son is three and they all love each other so much! I’m in the process of trying to convince my mom we need another dog! Thank you for all the years of joy and happiness you’ve provided with Oliver and Olivia! Love, The Rojas Family
Hi Elaine, I just wanted to follow-up with some pictures and video of my lovely Confucius! I love your site - it is highly detailed and super informative. As a first-time dog owner, I reference it religiously if I am not sure about how to proceed on topics ranging from diet to separation anxiety. I have referred this site to my friends who are considering adopting a puppy for the first time as this is an invaluable wealth of information. Also, the pictures on the puppy nursery is constantly updated every few weeks as they grow and develop. Confucius is the joy of my life! He is highly affectionate to me and my close friends. His kisses and cuddles are the best therapy you could ask for! As he is my first ever pet, I was quite nervous and full of questions initially about the house-training process and general puppy maintenance. Much to my delight, Elaine made herself very available to answer any of my questions over the phone or email, which made the process so much smoother. Wendy C
Bailey has her 1st bow...that is if she'll let it stay in...lol
This is my Bailey - girl .She is truly the sunshine of my life ! Smart as a whip and quick at only 3 months she rules our house . This little girl brings a smile to everyone she meets . I am so grateful to Elaine and "shihtzusbyelaine" for this beautiful bundle of joy ! She helped me with the adoption of my puppy from day one until the day I finally brought Bailey home . She is someone who truly cares about the happiness and health and proper placement of her pups.
These two!! Double trouble!
Thank you for these lovable mushy pups! We appreciate all of your hard work and all of the love that you give to your puppies! Kerry Berry
Hello Elaine, Thank you again for my Angel! She is such a joy❤️.

Everyone comments on how pretty it is. Thank you, Jen Popp

Hi Elaine, I’m so sorry that I have a written sooner. Our family has fallen in love with this little guy. The last photo was taken a few days ago.

He is also fun to play with and loves running around the yard. We went to the vet yesterday for his a check up and he is amazing. 6.8lbs! Thank you again for everything! I hope all is well with you.

Hello Elaine, Angel had her yearly checkup. She is doing wonderfully. Once again her veterinarian said she was well bred, and very healthy. Thanks for all that you do & the joy that you’ve given to so many! Love, Patty
Hi Elaine, Hope this finds you well. Just wanted to send you an updated picture of Sammie Rose. We adopted her from you in August 2016 and she has changed our world. She is the best dog ever and we love her so much!!! Her personality is loving, happy and fun. She is such a joy. Thank you for breeding such amazing dogs. You are the best! Jen Richardson
It’s been so long since I last gave you an update on Oliver and since his 6th birthday is on April 9th I thought now would be the perfect time. Oliver is literally the best thing that ever happened to my family. He is so loving, so sweet and has us laughing all day every day. He has an amazing personality and a mind of his own. Oliver loves to cuddle but also is obsessed with playing and obsessed with every single one of his toys. He still acts like a puppy! He really is so special and I can’t thank you enough for giving us the part of our family we were missing. Hope all is well! Best, The Novello Family
Hi Elaine, I don’t know if you remember us, but we adopted a dog from you 4 years ago. In life, we have been through many ups and downs, but our dog Oreo is one of the best things to ever happen to my family! Vets have told us that he is one of the most properly bred shih tzus she’s ever seen. People constantly stop us to tell us how adorable he is! We just wanted to let you know how grateful and thankful we are to you for our precious baby! THANK YOU! Warm Regards The Buddhavarapu Family
Dear Elaine, Angel just got home from the groomer, had to share this picture with you. She's such a wonderful dog, beautiful inside and out! Thanks to you for the joy she's given me. Patty

Elaine we can't thank you enough for this wonderful puppy. My vet examined her on her 12 weeks visit and he was amazed at how well she was put together he said it's the most properly bred shih tzu he has seen in many many years, he actually asked for your website and your number for the clients that were looking for properly bred pups he could refer you. Not a day goes by that We are not stopped while walking Eva by people asking is there any more left in the litter she is so beautiful she is so well mannered. The list goes on and on and I just give your name and website thank you so much for this beautiful puppy. FOREVER GRATEFUL, Kenny & Tee
Angel is the hit of the neighborhood! She's such a wonderful dog. Her vet & groomer said she was responsibly bred! She is getting spayed on Aug 22. I will let you know when the procedure is done. I can't thank you enough, she's brought such joy to my heart ❤️

Hi Elaine! I wanted to write to let you know how in love with Louie we all are. He's the best boy ever. Sweet as can be. He always needs a lap to be on. As soon as you lean down to pet him he rolls over, belly up for a rub. We couldn't have asked for a better dog! Love, The Chieffo Family
This is our beautiful Ava Rose who we had the pleasure of getting from you almost 4 years ago she is a sheer joy and brings love to our home every single day. We would love to get another baby please let me know if you have any available. Rosanna Giacone

Hi Elaine, We are on day 5 with our new baby girl, Samantha and I must say, we are in LOVE. She is as sweet as could be. Sleeping in the crate at night is a struggle, but I am sure we will get there. I have attached a picture for you. Hope you are feeling better. Thank you for breeding an amazing dog for us. Love, Jen Richardson
Just wanted to send an update on our two babies! Olivia just had her first birthday on the 7th of this month. She got a delicious chicken dinner and new toys. She is a ball of energy. She always wants to play and poor Oliver gets all of it. Oliver is going to be five in November! We cannot believe how time has flown. He is the king of the couch and the beds. That is where he wants to be at all times. Both dogs are everything to this family and we can't thank you enough !!

Hi there , No I don't mind , I loved him he was smart and I like that , I trained him And he loved it. It was me and him, I'm a Ordained Minister and he wound watch me write my sermons , sometimes he sound be on my lap on my bible lol lol I would have to put him in the stroller So I could finish my work .. When UPS Would come to the door he used to run out and greet them , but I trained him to not run out, so when they came to the door they wound ask where's Simba , he would be in eyes view wagging his tail.. He used to steal my socks and put them With his toys.. When I would come in from shopping he would go in my bags looking for a toy or treat , I spoiled him .. The Pet smart groomer said he was such a good boy to work on. My next door neighbor cried when I told her he's no longer resides with me .. Now I'm in tears .. Missing my babe.. ( I never had children )
The web site is WWW.NSARCO.com Only $65. The web site will explain everything .. I Am a disabled veteran I was raped in the Army so he was my ESA -emotional service animal .
If you google my name Ardeane Greene- Cook. You can hear my verbal interview and more , I'm archived in the library of congress ..👍🏾 Keep in touch blessings
Hi .. The bible speaks about seasons , And purpose .. It was for a Season I was allowed to be with Simba, and the purpose was #1- to show me unconditional love and #2- to prepare him for Elaine .. You can put that on your Website 💕🐶
Just updating a new picture from Gabby. She's just the perfect angel. Our kids are grown but we still have this special little greeter waiting for us.
Green band puppy 11/9/14 Hello Elaine! Just sharing a photo of handsome Darius, who is quiet and handsome and fun. He lives with us in NYC. Thanks for setting us up with such a great dog! LeeAnna
Hello Elaine, We want to give you an update on our sweet Chewy. She is 9 months and weighs 10 lbs 2 oz. She is up-to-date with her vaccines and we got her spayed on the 5th month. From day one, she was a perfect fit into the family. Elaine, she is so smart! She learned how to "sit", "roll" and "high five" by the 4th month! She is very friendly with both people and other animals. She loves the dog park, and welcomes the opportunity to watch the birds, run after leaves and fetch. Since she is so friendly and loves to go off to explore, we got her chipped. We could not bear the thought of losing her! She has brought much joy to our family. We had no idea we could love another pet as much as our beloved Roxy, ....but then along came our Chewy! Thank you, Elaine for allowing us to adopt Chewy. Be Well, Sonia, Joe and family
Elaine...Robert and I cannot believe it is now 1 yr since we traveled down to bring home our James. He is the sunshine in our home. Just had to say hello on this anniversary...1 yr. Still seems to us like only a week or so ago we were with you and then it was time to return to bring him home. I groom him myself...it is our time together. He loves to hold this red brush in his mouth while I comb and buzz him. A sweet game for him and me. With much love to you always dear Elaine... Robert....Tina & Sweet baby James
Hi Just wanted to give a quick update. Sophia is doing very well. Can not believe it is almost 1 yr since she came home with us. She is a tough little cookie. She loves to hunt birds, and run around the yard with her Buddy ( our other pup who is a few months older then her, he is a lab/pit mix. She does get a bit jealous if you pet him. She will bite you hand to pull it off him lol. She also loves to dig, I am not thrilled with this. She also will drop to the floor at your feet so you can rub her belly :) love that. I can not thank you enough for this little love bug. This photo is from right before her birthday 2/14 Hope all is well Diana
Dear Elaine, Cujo is 2 and 1/2 years now. We love him too death. I model him all the time. He is such a great dog. From, The Dean family
Jack is happy & healthy. In this picture he is 2 1/2 yrs old. Such a cutie! We wanted to thank you so much for such as wonderful addition to our family. He was the pup from Ladybug & Jasper. He is doing so well. Everybody loves him & he is the most loving dog we ever had in our family. Rita & Rob
Good Morning Elaine, We hope this email finds you well! Today is our little man, Muncie's 2nd Birthday so we had to send you some updated pictures. He is still fantastic beyond words and we are grateful every day! We really want to get together once it warms up a bit and let Muncie see his dad, Buddy. We're pretty sure that's where Muncie got his personality from. No matter where we are or who visits, they are only there to see Muncie... obviously! lol Be well and stay warm and keep making happy healthy souls and bringing joy to so many, one puppy at a time! Fred, Linda and Muncie
Hope everything is well and the holidays have been pleasant. I just wanted to update you on the King and Queen of our house! Olivia is adjusting well here. She LOVES her big brother Oliver so much. She follows him around and sits herself under him. She is a ball of energy and the perfect little cuddle buddy. Oliver has never been one to cuddle but since her arrival he lets her lay with him and now comes to lay with us as well. She will be starting puppy classes in the next few weeks; she also just got her first haircut yesterday and the groomer said she was so good. She is so adventurous and loves exploring every inch of the house. Thank you so much for letting us give Oliver and Olivia a forever loving home!
Forever grateful, The Rojas Family
only 3.5 pounds
Happy One Sadie
I can't believe she is a year old already. She has brought joy into our world. And now having Khloe my family is complete. Barbara monogioudis

Comment on your puppy purchase I'm so grateful to have found Elaine's page My Boy Simba is a Jewel . He keeps me busy and I think he owns me . He is potty trained. After 3 wks . He is very smart. And great company as I got him registered as EMD( emotional service dog) I'm a Army Veteran and he is just what the Dr ordered Thank you Elaine ..
I was impressed with the handling of the pup. I was able to see him at two wks old , I got to hold him. And that only intensified my resolve to bring him home. I was like little kid waiting for Santa Claus. July 17 couldn't come fast enough.. as a disabled Veteran I got Simba as a ESD ( emotional service dog ) I never had children and now he is my child .. He brings me Joy . Oh he is a handful he demands my full attention . Someone said you don't own them they own you.. He was potty trained In two wks. Of course One or two accident over all he's VERY SMART. Elaine was wonderful. Such a warm hearted person and it was a pleasure doing business with her. She definitely loves what she does. God bless her . Rev. Ardeane Cook
Hi Elaine, How are you doing? Bentley and Lexy are doing great. They love each other so much. Although Bentley thinks he's in charge, Lexy is the true protector. When she hears something strange she goes straight to the source while Bentley stays behind and barks from a distance. They love greenies and I give them one a day and this is how they stand at attention when we mention the word greenie. I groom them every 2-3 weeks. I use them to practice and little by little I'm getting better. I've been looking at your web site and all those new babies are so tempting. I wish I could get two more. lol They give us so much Joy and Bob loves that he works from home and gets to play with them all the time. We want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, and may the New Year bring lots of health and happiness. Love, Sandra, Bob, Bentley & Lexy
