We encourage our puppy buyers to come visit our home 
to see where your puppy is raised.   
Pricing
Our puppies are priced at $1200.00-$2500.00 pet price.  The puppy price will depend on a few factors such as confirmation, color, best guess-timate of adult size, and sex of the puppy.  However, I cannot guarantee the size or color of a puppy.  Shih Tzu may change coat colors until they are about 2 years old. The size will be a best guess-timate and is determind by looking at sizes from the lines bred and history of past breedings.  Puppy price will be set individually when the puppies are about 4 weeks old, at that time puppy deposits will be accepted.   Puppy prices reflect limited AKC registration and spay/neuter contracts.   Personal checks will be accepted but not as deposits or final payments.  Final payments must be made one week prior to the buyer recieving the puppy.  If more then one Little Love is purchased a 10% discount will be applied to the lesser priced puppy.  Puppies will be able to go to their new homes at about 10 weeks depending on their size as they must be a minimum of 2 lbs.

Our guess-timates for adult weight are based on a commonly used calculation.  
For a good guess at adult weight we:

Take the weight at 8 weeks and multiply by 3 (I like to add 1 just to be safe).

Take the weight at 10 weeks and multiply by 2 (add 1 pound).

Take the weight at 12 weeks and multiply by 2.

There is never any guarantee on adult weight and size as nature has the final say. This calculation is given only as a guide. Parents size, grandparents size, and a hundred other things can influence final adult size. 
  
Deposits
Before a deposit is made please make sure the puppy of your choice is available.  A minimum deposit of $300.00 will reserve your new puppy and will be applied to the purchase price.  The $300.00 deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances.  After selecting your new Little Love and the adoption application has been recieved, 72 hours will be given to recieve the deposit, only then will the puppy be posted as "Spoken For".  Final payments must be made one week prior to the buyer recieving the puppy, unless other arrangements have been made.

Type of payment accepted
You may use pay pal (which uses credit or debit, please add 3% for pay pal handling), cashiers checks, money orders, and cash will be accepted- no personal checks will be accepted for deposits or final payments, thank you.

Shipping a puppy
We will ship our puppies, but not until we feel the puppy is ready- usually at 10 weeks of age and or at least 2 pounds.  The shipping will depend on the flights available as well as weather.  There are three ways to ship your new baby, #1 you can come and pick him/her up, we would meet you at SeaTac airport for this option.  #2 We would use a puppy nanny that would fly your new baby in cabin to you or, #3 we can ship cargo but, ONLY if its a straight flight- NO stops and NO transfers.  Shipping cost is usually between $300.00 and $350.00- this pays for the ticket, health certificate required by the airline, and insurance on your puppy.   Shipping costs must be paid in advance and are not included in the price of the puppy unless otherwise stated. 

Meeting to deliver a puppy
As much as we would love new puppy parents to come to us and see where and how we live, we understand that isn't always convenient.  We can meet in the Seattle/Tacoma area to deliver pups and we can ship out of Sea tac airport.

We give a 2 year written health guarantee for genetic health issues.
