Pien Ji Shih Tzu is dedicated to producing a very few, very high quality Shih Tzu. My foundation boy, CH Ningsia's Chun Kee Bob, was the number 5 producer of Champion Shih Tzu in the US for 2008- based on a few, high quality litters bred here at home. I am the Vice President of the Puget Sound Shih Tzu Fanciers, the only Shih Tzu Club in the Northwest, as well as being a member of Tacoma Kennel Club and a Board member of the Toy Dog Club of Puget Sound. I was the first AKC recognized Breeder of Merit for Shih Tzu in Washington State (there are only 4).

But first and foremost, I love my dogs. My Shih Tzu are bred for type, temperament, and health, and even in a sweet breed like this, my Shih Tzu are known for being exceptionally sweet, loving, and well mannered. I wouldn't have it any other way! They are part of the family and penned only while small puppies or if the girls are in heat. I believe it is very important that they have a happy life. While I firmly believe that purebred dogs should only be bred to the standard and for breed improvement, I feel that if your pups aren't a true delight to live with, you have failed!

About this website

Last year, I found the most amazing photpgrapher- Alyssa Rose Photography in Seattle. She does pictures of dogs on an all white background - I just loved them. I realized that what I loved about them was that they were ALL about the dog. Eventually it dawned on me (I'm slow- it took me a while) that a website should be the same way. I had a website with art and music and animations- but what if we went back to square one and made it all about the dogs? So I made an appt with Alyssa and got pictures taken of the kids- I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy sharing them with you! The amazing pictures in the white backgrounds come from Alyssa Rose Phtography!
