We are small hobby breeders here in the small 

town of Wells on the coast of Maine.

{The town over from Ogunquit Maine} 


Wells/Ogunquit Maine is a Beautiful tourist 

town in the Summer months, Plus people come 

from all over in the fall to see the fall  

New England foliage.  We would not ask to live 

in a more beautiful place.

Our Home

In our opinion we believe Shih Tzus are the 

most loving breed of dog.

They have the biggest hearts in the dog world 

we believe, but again 

we are partial to them.  Yes That is our opinion 

but we think most people who have had 

them or been around them would totally agree 

with us. 

Shih Tzus are considered non- 

shedding & Hypo allergenic. 

They have hair not fur.

With these traits they are very appealing to a 

lot of people.

So Please read up on the Shih Tzu breed 

 before contacting us about a   

puppy or an adult.

We have a small breeding program of AKC Shih 

Tzus.  This assures 

quality not quantity. Also assures that we have 

time for all our adult dogs and the puppies. 

We are not a kennel in anyway. All our dogs 

share our home and everyday life.

We will be honest We are into Bloodline. We

look for lines that  we know will complement 

our program. Health is also the up most 

importance. Health and Lines go hand in 


Temperament also plays a huge part here at 


Size and colors are also in our mind when 

breeding but is not top priority. We only have 

as many litters a year 

that we know we can handle to make sure we 

have time to devote to each puppy and 


All our Shih Tzus  have 

amazing Temperaments. They are raised with 

kids, adults and other dogs and of corse 

under our feet. We feel this is what makes our 

dogs have the best of everything.

You could not ask for better puppy or dog from 



Tatnicland Shih Tzus are in the range of 7-12 

pounds for females and 5-12 pounds for males. 

We do not bred for the real small ones nor the 

real big ones. Most of ours are in the range for 

the AKC standard.{ In saying this we do get 

tinies/smalls and some on the bigger side of 

standard occasionally this is due to the 

bloodlines they carry}. This means our puppies 

will be good size for the young and young at 

heart . The  size we produce is perfect for kids 

to dress up, 

for light wrestling, hiking with an active 

family or just to find a nice warm lap to curl 

up on.  

Shih Tzus are a hardy breed considering their 

size. The one thing we love about this breed is 

the range of colors they come in. We love the 

harder colors to find, We do not use the word 

rare or exotic as there is no such thing. We 

like to say 

they are an unique color. They are head 

turners for sure.  Some of our adults are colors 

you don't see every day. We also have adults 

that are common colors in the bred. So 

everyone should be able to find one they love.  


***** Shih Tzus grow at different rates. Even 

though  parents are of one size does not mean 

the puppy will be that size. The puppy could be 

smaller or larger than their parents. 

All our puppies will be sold to loving inside 

homes. We will not sell to just anyone. We 

have the right to refuse a sale.

All our puppies are sold with Limited AKC {Pet 

only} None of our puppies will be sold with 

Full breeding rights.

Puppies will leave here with Contract stating 

they must be fixed by a certain date and age. 

Proof will have to be send to us before AKC 

papers will be given. {you will see the AKC 

papers when you pick up your puppy, so you 

know he/she is AKC registered}. 

  All our puppies come prespoiled, raised under 

foot in our home. We are not a kennel.

*** Puppies will be able to leave around 9-12 

weeks old depending on each puppies 

development. We will determine when they can 

leave our home. { some may have to stay 

longer, each puppy is different}.

All puppies will come with limited AKC, 1st and 

2nd set of shots {if older then 12 weeks 3rd is 

given}, Kennel cough, wormed, vet 

checked, Health guarantee, 

puppy goodie bag, food we feed and pre-


Please take the time to educate yourself on the 

Shih Tzu.

 We will be asking you a lot of 

questions about what you know about them 

 plus will be asking 

you about yourself and your family. plus what 

your looking for in a puppy/dog. This is

to make sure you would be a good match for 

one of our puppies/dogs.

Buying an animal young or old is a lifetime 

commitment. So if you do not have the time 

and love to give one please don't bring one 

into your life.

If you do have the time and love to give you 

will have a wonderful best friend for life....

 We ask that everyone read our contract 

before contacting us about one of our 

puppies/adults. This is so you would know 

what you would be signing if you decided one 

of our puppies would be a good fit for you.
