Your investment is highly respected and taken seriously.
All ZuZu Shih Tzu puppies come from exclusive parents, forming genetic excellence in health and temperament (loyal, obedient, friendly). The entire team had DNA testing completed with reports verifying their clearance from hundreds of genetic defects and illnesses. This precise process of breeding prevents the puppies from having or carrying hundreds of diseases, giving you the best foundation of health available. These bloodlines provide a history of excellence and you are given a 2 year health guarantee from any fatal genetic defects.
As to the variety within our team, I offer you an array of different colors and sizes to choose from. Litters are categorized in weight variations of: 4-6 pounds, 7-9 pounds, and 10-12 pounds.
All of my Shih Tzus live with us in our home, each being part of our lives throughout the day and night. The puppies enjoy this lifestyle, as well, which helps them to be socially ready for your home. You will receive weekly photos, updates, and videos until your puppy joins you. All vaccinations are up to date when you receive your puppy.
The deposits made are applied to your purchase amount. If you change your mind on a particular puppy, the amount down can be applied to a future puppy as deposits are non-refundable. Included, for you, will be ongoing support and help for your puppy’s entire life.
Your puppy will come home with the following:
- blanket used by mom and siblings and a favorite toy, these items offer comfort in the transition of homes
- sample of food the puppy has been eating since being weaned off of mom, this provides you a foundation to start or food to combine with the transition of your choice
- the record of vaccines received and the veterinarian’s record of examination for excellent condition
Size and Weight
Due to the nature of puppy growth patterns, I generally cannot guess on size until they are 4-6 weeks old. Even when I make my best guess, they sometimes surprise me. The tiniest one born may wind up being the largest by the time they are 8 weeks old. Keep in mind, Shih Tzu mature quickly and reach full adult growth by ten months of age.
Here is my method of adult size estimating:
4 weeks: puppy weight x 5
6 weeks: puppy weight x 4
8 weeks: puppy weight x 3
12 weeks: puppy weight x 2.5
14 weeks: puppy weight x 2
