Hello, my name is Patricia and I am a small in home Shih Tzu Breeder, located in the
Ballantyne Area, of Charlotte, North Carolina.
I've personally owned small terrier dogs since 1985 and then I became an AKC Breeder in 1995, I had breed Champion Maltese, but now only breed Champion Bloodline Shih Tzu's. I breed for quality, color, disposition and of course beauty. Show Dog Quality Of course, know that their champion quality is not cheap. I spend a tremendous amount of time and of course money, to provide the current vaccinations, wormings, veterinary visits/checks, as well as the best nutrition these puppies require. If you adopt a puppy(s) from Imperial Shih Tzu's by Tricia, you are assured that your puppy has been given the utmost tender loving care ever, by me.
An up to one year of age Replacement Guarantee will be given on any condition that caused your puppy to expire, which dates from the pre-natal stage. You must have a Notarized Veterinarian Certificate with findings stating that the death of the puppy was definitely caused from the pre-natal stage. Out of state buyers must send the notarized Veterinarian report by registered mail along with all of the puppy's medical records. Sellers Veterinarian must confirm and agree with the diagnosis. Guarantee will only consist of a replacement puppy of the same gender, from the next available litter.
I will only sell my puppies with Limited AKC Registration, I do not sell to anyone, full AKC Registration "Breeding or Showing Rights" If you're from a puppy mill, please do not waste your time or mine, as I will refuse to sell you any of my puppies.
NOTE TO ALL BREEDERS... PLEASE DO NOT WASTE MY TIME, AS I DO NOT SELL BREEDING RIGHTS, SOLELY MY CHOICE, AS THE HASSEL OF SUCH IS NOT WORTH MY TIME. I BREED STANDARD SHIH TZUS OF EXCELLENT QUALITY, BUT FOR PET ONLY PURCHASE. PLEASE RESPECT MY WISHES, THANK YOU!
I DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT PLANS EITHER, PUPPY MUST BE PAID-IN-FULL UPON PURCHASE.
I HAVE BEEN PROMISED, CONTRACT SIGNED, PAYMENT AGREEMENT SIGNED AND WITNESSED, ONLY TO NEVER RECEIVED PROMISED PAYMENTS, FROM A LOCAL BREEDER HERE IN NORTH CAROLINA.
I BREED STANDARD SHIH TZU'S, MY ADULT DOGS RANGE FROM 7.5 LBS TO 11.5 LBS. WITH THAT SAID, I DO NOT GUARANTEE ADULT WEIGHT, NOR SHOULD ANY BREEDER DO SO, NO PUPPY CALCULATOR CAN GUARANTEE THE FINAL ADULT WEIGHT OF THE PUPPY AT THE AGE OF 3 MONTHS. I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE, AS SOME OF MY ADULT DOGS WERE CALCULATED TO END UP VERY SMALL AND THEY DIDN'T, SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO NOT GUARANTEE ADULT WEIGHT.
"Imperial Shih Tzu's by Tricia, the business name was chosen for the History of the "Chinese Imperial Dog" as stated throughout my website I breed "Standard Shih Tzu's", people inquire on obtaining an Imperial Shih Tzu, for SIZE, Imperials is not an approved classification recognized by the AKC, the so called "Imperial" is the runt of the litters, but in some cases end up being the largest puppy of the litter. I do not breed toy or miniature Shih Tzu's.
I reserve the right to cancel any sale, at any time, for any reason. Please know that this is for the health and well being of my dogs.
There is no Replacement Guarantee for adult dogs over one year of age.
Please note that during times of stress, such as going to a new home, puppies can exhibit temporary signs of illness which may include: sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, diarrhea and/or constipation. To help reduce the signs of stress, feed the puppy. Offer bottled water, as well as taking reasonable measures to reduce stress. You can do this by slowly introducing them to the house and the members of the household, as well as limiting the time they are with strangers, children and other animals.
