Welcome to our home page. Thank you for taking a few minutes to stop by for
a visit. I thought I would take a minute to tell you alittle about Shafer's
Shih Tzu. I have been showing and raising this wonderful breed since 1983.
In that time I have had the honor of owning, breeding, showing and meeting
many lovely dogs. We are located in west central Illinois USA. I was lucky
enough to be located not far from the Dragonfire kennel at the time I got
interested in Shih Tzu. This is where the basic foundation of my breeding
program came. Through the years I have added a few different bloodline in
hopes of enhancing the quality of the dogs.
We strive hard to produce
healthy happy puppies that make equally as good of companions as they do
show dogs. This breed was intended to be companion animals and I feel that
should be the utmost concern when producing a litter. I also feel the job
doesn't end when the puppies leave my home. The support you give to pet
owners as well and new show people is the most valuable thing you can give
to the dog , the new owners and the breed as a whole. I don't know all the
answers but if I do know I will be more than happy to share it. If I don't
I will see if we can find out the answer some way.
I hope you will enjoy your visit here and will come back often to see what
is new. Hope to have new pictures and some articles on dog care and
grooming coming very soon.
A big thanks goes to Irena Nuc for building this
home of mine on the web. Thanks Irena for a job well done. Be sure to check
out her Agnesana Shih Tzu site too.
