Welcome to HealthyPups Shih Tzu puppies for sale, featuring videos (scroll down) of both purebred and designer hybrid puppies. Hybrids are intentional mixes that are likely to be smarter, healthier, better with kids, cheaper to buy, cheaper to own, and easier to house train! These issues are common complaints generated by modern purebred registered champion girlie pets! The true value of a pet is in the happiness that it brings to our life; NOT its pedigree! Please wait for videos to load if necessary. Videos must be viewed on a high speed unrestricted internet connection, on a PC with proper plug-ins. 90% of our visitors are able to view these videos with no problems.

We are a family owned nursery and rescue (not a pet store or brokerage service). Consumer research statistics suggest that 50% of American puppy buyers immediately spent more at the vet than they paid for their puppies, and 1 of 3 pups died after excessive vet bills. Up to 50% of puppies adopted from public shelters, and up to 30% of pups nationwide, have died from parvovirus alone because parvovirus vaccines were not done beginning at 5 weeks of age. It takes years of hands on experience to do a better job with health care for baby animals. Pet owners and other inexperienced care givers only know how to pet puppies, and may even lie about vaccines given. A huge vet bill is too often the result of buying from a scammer, pet owner, or from an inexperienced care giver. We at HealthyPups provide a care standard with more than 30 years experience! OUR pets receive 2 doses of Neopar parvovirus vaccine BEFORE going to their new homes. Vaccine sellers have repeatedly commented that Neopar is often the only vaccine that seems to consistently stop the spread of viruses in sick animal populations. Are OUR pets the ONLY pets that get 2 doses of Neopar prior to sale? Shouldn't YOUR puppy be a HealthyPup?
Shouldn't your new puppy come from a nursery with more than 30 years experience?

•Up to 50% of puppies adopted through public shelter adoption programs, and 30% of puppies world wide from novice care givers, die from viruses alone after huge vet bills. Some older pets in our nation are dying from distemper now, simply because their puppy shots were not done properly. Shouldn't your puppy be a HealthyPup with proper vaccines and wellness exam ALREADY DONE beginning at 5 weeks of age? Our record speaks for itself; 0 pets lost to viral illnesses for many years now!
•Our puppies have begun their proper CRATE TRAINING (NOT confusing pad or paper training in the home of an inexperienced pet owner).
•It is not a good idea to teach puppies to urinate on pads or paper unless you always want them to do so, because it can cause some pets to become confused and potty on rugs or other objects in the floor by accident later!
•It is also not a good idea to buy a puppy that was raised in a pet owner home. Most of these have already been accidentally pre-trained to urinate in the floor of their next home, unless you think buying pads and cleaning them would be more convenient for you than your pet going outside! We also raise many hybrid mixes, which are always easy to house train!

If visiting the kennel to pick up a pet in person, please PARK your vehicle in our concrete drive located beside our kennel sign. Please do not drive to the kennel unless you are handicapped and unable to walk. Your vehicle near the kennel can upset moms and cause them to accidentally injure or kill newborn puppies. Please do not wear flip-flops when coming to see pets, because these can slip on a concrete floor.
PUPPIES LOOK MUCH LARGER ON VIDEO THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE. PLEASE WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO! I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CREATE PERSPECTIVE. WE OFFER AN HONEST LOOK AT PUPPIES FOR SALE IN PRESENT CONDITION, ETC, NOT CUTE, PHOTOSHOPPED, MISREPRESENTED PHOTOS! I often have people visit to buy pets they have chosen on video, only to change their mind and buy a larger puppy when they see them in person, because many worry that the puppy they had chosen is too small and fragile.
It seems that every little girl thinks she wants a female puppy. I would recommend a male puppy for female owners, because females often like men better. I have had many complaints from women over the years that their female pet prefers a male family member, and doesn't like them! A male puppy neutered at the correct time is no more likely to raise his leg than the female is to be nervous and tinkle. It is also common for young girls to be in love with the idea of dressing female puppies in pink, putting bows in the hair, etc. A male puppy does not know that he is not a girl:) He will not mind that his clothes and bows are pink, and you don't have to tell your friends that he is not a girl! You can easy save $100.00 by choosing a male also, since we sell most males $50.00 cheaper (because 75% of our puppies are born males). It is also much cheaper to get males neutered than to spay females.
For those of you have done a good job reading my material, I do apologize for repeatedly reposting some of this material. It is impossible to get some to read at all, and it is an even greater challenge to inform some folks to the point that we can be sure there's a reasonable chance we can have a mutually successful kennel visit!

Our care standard includes the following veterinary care ALREADY DONE prior to sale at the recommended adoption age of 10 weeks. 5 weeks-Neopar. 7 weeks-Nobivac 5way. 9-10 weeks-Neopar. Puppies also have had fecal analysis and correction for parasites and bacterial imbalances that can cause problems in the near future. They get Ivomec Topical to prevent Sarcoptic and Demodectic Mange, Ear Mites, Fleas, and Ticks. Pyrantel and Panacur wormers are also given as needed. Coccidiostat is used to prevent protozoa. Heart worm preventatives are also up to date. Because one of every three pups sold in the US die from parvo virus each year, and because Neopar seems to be the only vaccine that is protecting against mutated strains of the virus, our goal is that your pet get TWO doses of Neopar BEFORE it goes home, and does not need veterinary care until booster vaccines are due! NOTHING is more important for your puppy than 2 doses of Neopar. A wise buyer should not adopt even a free puppy that did not get 2 Neopar vaccines! For those who want a healthy puppy with no immediate vet bills, NO PUPPY, not even a FREE puppy, is likely to be CHEAPER than ours!
