         ​   AKC Shih Tzu Puppy Sale
ShihTzu by Holland is a family small Hobby Breeder. We breed specifically for "AKC
Liver​" brown ShihTzuPuppies. AKC recognizes the brown "liver" pigment​ in determining AKC Liver. Whether the fur is cream, dark chocolate, milk chocolate in color
​AKC still calls the Pup Liver based on it's pigment. When a Puppy has over 50% white, the fur is used in determining "AKC Liver and White"

About me and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ:

I Love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my Heart. He has blessed me with a wonderful family (Husband for 28 yrs (though in 2019 he cheated and he refused marriage counseling and has gone his own way) . Iim sharing to let you know why you don't see the same marriage status on my FB albums, etc. I have strength in the Lord. Through it all, the  truth sets me free!

​​I am left blessed to have 6 kids..of which one, my 19 yr went to Heaven Feb. 12, 2012).
​While Austin was here we had Our retired pets Ami, Cocoa, Ginger, Zoey Alamo (see Sire: Alamo/chocolate Pups link at bottom of page) and our Rosie Girl...We are blessed with these sweet AKC Shih Tzus.God gave me two more Shih Tzu females to breed the following year..Zoey and Rosie. We have raised both Cocoa and Ginger, and Zoey from our litters and love their puppies. We have rehomed Ami, Cocoa, and Ginger. The hardest part is parting with our adult dogs..However,  I’m content with all God's answers to my prayer for His plans for this Hobby.  He is Sovereign and my precious Savior...I surrender my life to Him daily.  My Life's Verse:
Psa 37:4 "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." In August 2014, we moved to a smaller home. We accepted deposits on 5 of our Adult Shih Tzu which will go to new homes after their 2015 Breedings are fulfilled for our cstomers with deposits. We will keep 4 female Shih Tzu (Rosie, Zoey, and Belle and Blossom, solid chocolate puppies planning to breed starting 2016).  We are also raising "Blaze", a quality small AKC Male from reputable bloodline with a goal to continue throwing beautiful AKC Liver Pups for our small Breeder and Pet homes:Akc Liver includes Dark Chocolate, Deep Red Liver, Red and White Liver, and Liver and White.) Puppies.
I had always wanted to have Dogs since I was a little girl growing up in California. This particular breed brings me much joy and love and only an awesome God could create them. I live by His Word: and my goal for 2012/13/14/15 is to share the Gospel with others and grow even closer to Him. It is such a blessing to have family, a church home and church family, faithful friends, and my Shih Tzu..God sure knew what he was doing to give me a personal Savior to trust. Not me alone, but the whole world was given this Free GIFT of eternal life and it can be yours! Yes..our sins are forgiven as he paid the price with his precious blood on the cross..Life in Heaven for all Eternity is for anyone who accepts Christ before physical death:
Jhn 11:25 "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:" I have new spiritual Life in Christ. And while my heart and mind are on things of the Lord, I do get to enjoy the abundance of Love that surrounds me on Earth..and my Little dogs are part of that blessing! If you are looking for a puppy, I couldn't think of a better companion in an animal than this little one of God's creatures..I think God gave man dogs to help him learn to love even the small things He created. But we must learn to Love the Creator more than His Creation. All good things come from Him.Thanks for Coming to see how He has blessed our home with AKC Puppies for Sale
 If you woud like to know that you have a home in Heaven when you die, then you need the Savior, Jesus Christ in your heart (to be born again spiritually):
Jhn 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus Christ is God in the flesh! 100% God and 100% man, he came to the Earth to die for your sins as a perfect sacrifice to appease God's judgement (God is Holy and can't be in the presence of sin), he gave His life for yours and mine. The first man, Adam, was separated spiritually from God, when he disobeyed Him. Jesus Christ came to bridge the gap between man and God! His death on the cross paid the price fully for our sin. There is nothing we can do to save ourselves, no work or goodness will get us to Heaven. Only through faith, believing on the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, can we be saved. He gave mankind a precious gift, shedding His own blood, so that we might have eternal life! As He was buried and rose from the dead, overcoming sin and death, he gave every believer Victory over sin and death, reconcilling man and God!!
Rom 5:12
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"
 To be saved:
Acknowledge that you are a sinner and have need of a Savior, then ask Him to forgive your sins and to come into your heart (in prayer):
Rom 6:23
"For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Because his blood is sinless blood (He was born of a Virgin by the Holy Spirit), God accepted His blood sacrifice as payment for our sins!
 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Rom 10:9
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

If you simply prayed, believing in His power to save you, then you are Saved!
When He died on the cross, He said "it is finished" because the work of salvation belongs to Him and He did all that was required of God to save our souls!

Hbr 11:6
"But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
As a believer, you are assured of eternal life in Christ; when you die, you have a home in Heaven:

Jhn 14:2
"In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

Jhn 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:"

1Ti 3:16

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

I have learned that the KJV is the Holy Bible for the English speaking people. It's important for you, as a new Believer to get into a New Testament church that preaches and teaches God's Word, so you can learn to walk with the Lord Daily and grow in His grace.

2Ti 3:16

"All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

We are thankful that the Lord got glory in Austin's death​​.

 Austin James Holland passed from this earth 1 month before his 20th birthday
Austin loved holding puppies. He was around the home alot due to the pain caused by his Lupus. He asked me to give him Zoey one day and I offered to share her with him..She is half yours I told him. He loved her so much. His death on Earth has been the biggest tragedy in my life. I miss him more than words can express. I'm thankful the Lord gave me such precious memories of him and our time together before his passing until I see him again, but in Heaven. I think of him daily and especially when I hold Zoey.
We socialize pups daily..this assures your puppy to relax in your arms!
How we take care of your Puppy!!
We take excellent care of our pets (our Breeding females are our pets and we love them. We feed the very best and offer fresh chicken and rice to our nursing moms..and Exclusive "chicken and Rice" Puppy food. We make sure they get plenty of water so they can produce milk for the puppies. We weigh your puppy daily with a digital scale to monito your puppy to be sure puppies are gaining weight (Healthy puppies steadily gain weight.
Pups go home at 8 weeks..that is Best

We don't let our puppies go home before 8 weeks of age..the socialization that takes place between the litter mates and the mama are very important to your puppy's well being..For example, they learn not to "bite" hard as one will let out a loud squeel which stops the pup immediately..you can use this technique of puppy tries to teethe on you! It works!
We use Misty's Potty training System..so that your puppy is partially trained by the time you get hm or her...it's a great way to teach the pup to be ready for crate training as they will not poo in their crate and they learn to go where you want them to, because they already have learned there is a PLACE to go! We use the Potty Patch..which mimics outdoor grass and makes for an easier transition to outdoor potty training or continue to use a potty park in your apartment. Puppies go over to it to go on it and will still use puppy pads or paper if desired. We hose our potty patch off and use another while it dries in the sun. Puppies never leave the home until they get their Vet check up at about 7 weeks. We also do not walk our adult dogs while we have babies on the ground that have not had all three of the Puppy shot series..to avoid any puppy diseases being tracked into the puppies.
Readiness for dog food and weaning can be seen in Puppy that licks dog food off my finger. We never force or coax; Puppies show their readiness. Puppies are enthusiastic to start on a gruel (gravy like) blend of puppy food that has been soaked and blended.we wean from mama over a 3 week period starting at 3 1/2 weeks so that there is no trauma to mama or pups.. We gradually (as pups get teeth) go to a soft dog food consistency ..then dry food, so that your puppy is eating both soft and hard dry food by the time he goes home to you. We suggest you check with your Vet as to whether to go to all dry or contine the combo feeding. You can make your own soft (like canned food) by soaking dry food in water in fridge for an hour or more, then blend in blender. Keeps in fridge for three days. We start feeding five times a day, then we feed to four times a day. Leave the food out for up to 30 minutes for pups to eat, then throw away leftovers. By 6 mos..your pup should be eating twice a day, then once a day by one year. Your Vet will instruct on feeding as well.
How your puppy responds to you is very important to us..we hold our puppies often daily for optimal socialization to humans.
Merry Christmas 2012..God is so good to bless us with 10 puppies!! .

WE Love our Puppies and it shows in our customers comments about us..we also listen to our customers tell us what they like tosee in future puppies..that's why we are bringing in more red and more Chocolate non fading Livers. We plan to bring a puppy in to raise her to breed to Alamo in Summer 2015. We also will keep Alamo's daughter and raise her to breed to Red so we can keep his Champion line!
​NOTE: About Champion Bloodlines: When I look at a pedigree I count the red names with the 
CH (CHAMPION ID)  in front of it as thdicates the dog in the ancestry. There are 65 positions in a 5 generation Pedigree and 23 of those positions have AKC Champion Shih Tzus in them...though there are 8 Dogs that have had some "double duty" so to speak! You may find that the Sire and Dam have some repeated Champion ancestors in their side thast both show in Alamo's pedigree. When I've said there are 23 Champions in Alamo's pedigree, I guess its not "technically" correct as there are 15 separate AKC Champions total on both sides with 8 breedings including with some of the 15 Champions. Breeders use the same Champion to "set" strengths and characteristics thay want in their line, so that the offspring are "closer to AKC standard", so it is a very common practice to "Line Breed". One of my favorite customers brought to my attention that the number 23 did not identify separate champions, so I wanted to clarify the matter. Counting the Champions in Alamos pedigree to 23, which is true, was never meant to mislead that there are 23 specific different champions in Alamo's pedigree. There are 15 Champions which is quite a bit..and 23 Champion Breedings so that about 1/3 of the Breeding activity in Alamo's pedegree was with AKC Champion Shih Tzus...we love our Shih Tzus and what Alamo produces with our girls! His Champion bloodline is a Plus in that it represents he is from "good Stock!". We don't promote that our puppies ARE or ARE NOT Show Quality. We leave that up to those that SHOW and handle AKC Shih Tzu Puppies for the ring. Come see the cute faces at age 3 weeks in this litter
