We are a small, in home, hobby Shih Tzu breeder in Northern Central - Coastal California, located between San Jose/San Francisco & the Monterey/Carmel area.

We offer 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 colors.

The "Imperial" Shih Tzu is also known as Miniature, Tiny, Teacup, Chinese Imperial,
small Shih Tzu, Purse Puppy, Pocket Puppy, etc.
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 one.

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.

Our Chinese 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 also had their eyes CERFED.
We also practice and implement holistic/organic methods whenever possible.

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).

Your Chinese Imperial or Small Standard Shih Tzu will be very healthy, well adjusted, pampered, socialized, happy, and alert when ready to join you into your family with potty training well underway.

We offer a 2 year written health guarantee and very important Lifetime Support

We provide Limited AKC registration (Loving Pet Homes) to approved 
        homes on a spay/neuter agreement.
Click here to See "Puppy Adoption Form"

Full registration (Breeding or Show) may be provided to approved Shih Tzu puppy lovers for an additional cost. An additional adoption form will apply.

We will never sell to pet stores or brokers.

   We ask you to please please give the same love & care our babies have been given and send us photos so we may see how our pampered tiny babies blossom into 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, high quality
beautiful Shih Tzu.           

If for some 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 as we do not want our fur babies to ever ever end up in a shelter or worse.

We want you to be 100% happy and have a 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 true!

Payment plans or layaway are welcome.

We would love for you to stay awhile, take a look around, and return often to the beautiful Shih Tzu Garden, Where Exquisite Puppies are Grown!

Please give us a jingle! We would love to hear from you!
