attended my first dog show a little over 20 years ago. It was love at first
sight as I watched that shih tzu move so elegantly, confident, proud, with
head and tail held high move around the ring. I was hooked and knew I had
to have one. After a great deal of consideration and searching for a
reputable breeder, I purchased my first pair, (yes I had hopes of showing
and breeding). My son was born, then my daughter a short time later. .
Needless to say, coat care and training took second (third, fourth, etc.)
place, and my shih tuz babies became our pets and were very much loved and
adored for the many years they shared with our family. As my children are
now older and a little more self sufficient I caught the shih tzu bug again.
. I spent time attending shows, searching the internet, and talking to many
breeders who had years of experience working with this wonderful breed. I
have been truly blessed to find a mentor and dear friend. who was willing
to take a chance and take me under her wing. I owe more than I can ever say
to Cassie Morgan, of Morgan's Shih Tzu. It has been her guidance and talent
that has enabled me to realize a dream I thought would never come true.
great humility and pleasure, I welcome you to Impressions' Shih Tzu. I hope
that you will enjoy visiting our site. I have a small breeding program with
the goal of producing my own show puppies. Producing healthy puppies that
demonstrate the true character of a quality shih tzu does not happen by
accident. Breeding is only done with the goal of improvement. Our attempt
is to create puppies that are better than their parents.
puppies are AKC registered, and sold with limited registration. They are
raised in my home and are part of our family and I take great care to make
sure they are going to a home where they will be loved and cared for . My
children do a wonderful job of socializing all of our babies, and needless
to say, this breed is wonderful with children. I must say, the trait that
I first fell in love with when I saw that first shih tzu was the sweet
face. The large round eyes, warm expression, flat face with upturned nose
and eyelashes to die for melted my heart, and still does to this day. Breed
standard in body type, coat, and disposition are all priorities in our
breeding program, however I particularly strive for lines that are known for
the expression that only can be found in this little lion dog.
I hope that you will consider Impression's Shih Tzu
when making the decision to welcome this loving breed into your home.
