We are a small,
in home, hobby Shih Tzu breeder in Northern
Central - Coastal California, located
between San Jose/San Francisco & the
Purebred, Top Quality, Adorable, Loving, and
Gorgeous small standard AKC and Chinese
Imperial Shih Tzu Puppies with Champion and
Tiny Imperial Lines in rare and classic
The "Imperial" Shih
Tzu is also known as Miniature, Tiny,
Teacup, Chinese Imperial,
small Shih Tzu, Purse Puppy, Pocket Puppy,
They are a smaller size Shih Tzu compared to
the standard 9-16 pound AKC Shih Tzu.
We do not believe
they are a different breed as you might read
elsewhere but just a little smaller with all
the same conformation and health as a larger
We do breed for
the smaller size Shih Tzu in addition to the
smaller 9-11 lb standard size Shih Tzu so we
can offer you a variety of sizes to best
suit your lifestyle, however we do not breed
for the tiny tiny ones. We do occasionally
get them and they have all passed several
health checks from our trusted vet.
Imperial Shih Tzu are registered with the
Chinese Imperial Registry of America (in
addition to AKC) as proof to their small
size as it is documented and certified with
photos and witnesses.
Our Vision here at Shih
Tzu Garden is to always strive to better the
breed and collaborate with others sharing
the same mission in order to provide you
with a healthy
Puppy of Distinction.
We do health and genetic testing on
our adult dogs before we breed
them to further insure a
healthy pup for you. They have
their eyes CERFED.
and implement holistic/organic methods
We will continue
to stay small in order to provide all of our
Shih Tzu fur angels with all the daily love
and attention they deserve and need.
(this assures a happy puppy and an easier
transition to you).
Imperial or Small Standard Shih Tzu will be
very healthy, well adjusted, pampered,
happy, and alert when ready to
join you into your family with potty
training well underway.
We offer a 2 year written health guarantee

We provide Limited AKC registration (Loving

We ask you to please please
give the same love & care our babies have

gorgeous adults. We love to see that all of
our hard efforts, high costs, continual
education, and many sleepless nights are
consistently producing our goal of healthy,
beautiful Shih Tzu.

reason you are no longer able to care for
your Shih Tzu, please let us know first so
we may help you re-home or take back the dog

ever end up in a shelter or worse.

wonderful experience with your new Shih Tzu
angel and will work with you as much as we
can to help make your puppy dreams come
