Anybody know of a good place to find one?
Brockton MSCPA only has a few large dogs at the moment.
Woman in Marion breeder was not very reputable in our opinion.
Anyone?

Billd,

My wife called them briefly yesterday. They seemed very straightforward and helpful. We will follow up with them.

Thank you!

See me on Sunday's or be sure to mention my name
I promise you will be taken very good care of!

Chuck , do your research . Ask about health of parents and grandparents and known issues like cancer , heart disease etc. when you get there , make sure you see the parents and where they live . Don't support puppy mills !

Good luck finding a shih-tsu puppy. You won't be sorry about picking this wonderful breed of dog.. I had two shin-tsu puppy sisters up until 8 months ago but sadly Libby, who was only six years old, passed away from cancer a short time ago. The other dog, Abby, seems to be in great health. The puppies came from a private home and were purchased when they were 2-3 months old. There are no guarantees about health, but I am sure some research on parents and grandparents would still be helpful when making your purchasing decision.
I have had many, many dogs over the years but the shih-tsu's are, by far, the best dogs I have ever had. They are beautiful little lap dogs, clean, easy to train, loveable, child friendly, and they will make you happy. Who could ask for anything more?

Thanks Laura and toto, I forgot to check my own post for responses.
I can tell you've had the shih-tsus, toto, that's it exactly!
Pippy was 15 when she passed. We might even get 2, we'll see.

I get the sense that there's some scamming in this business (puppies).
They're so adorable, and people get emotional about them. Some breeders feel that they can just string people along.

Are the Shih-tsu's the ones that have hair, rather than fur, so they don't shed, but instead get haircuts?

I recall a close family friend having two of those, she loved them.

Best,

Mark

Shih-tsu dogs need to be groomed at least 3-4 times a year. It usually costs $40.00 per visit. They are great little dogs and love you to death.

Yes, Mark, right.

Toto, you got it. and they're in general a longer lived breed.
Pippy lasted 15 years before we lost her last year.

Billd,
Let me add one more great review to this, and I'll give YOU a great review as well!
Daphne has been with us for a couple of weeks now, and we are on Cloud 9 at home with her.
Thanks so much for the suggestion!

It's a good accomplishment but I'm more proud of the broader picture where when someone googles "Easton Mass" and 3rd down on the list is this website where they see folks communicating, helping and discussing things online since 1996. Now that's a happy ending!

No, I didn't see the parents, Laura. Good advice, I'm sure.

For us, it's a great result.
Thanks, Burt!

Looking for a puppy - either a Yorkshire Terrier or a Shih-tsu. Does anyone have any leads? Had to put down our 18 year old Yorkie recently and miss her.
