About Us

Another of Connie holding Mary Jane Hi, I’m Connie Keeton owner of ShihTzuGal.com and I thank you for visiting my website.

My husband and I live in Spring Hill, Florida with our precious Shih Tzu’s and I breed Shih Tzu and ONLY Shih Tzu Puppies. I chose each of my personal dogs from the best breeders all over the state of Florida (and my hubby drove all the way to the mountains of Alabama in the middle of winter for one) to ensure none of my dogs are related in any way. I chose my dogs in a variety of different colors and paid close attention to their over-all breed standards, alertness, personalities, playfulness and sweetness of nature.

Before going further, I wanted to clear up a myth. Please note that there is no such thing as an “Imperial” or “Tea-cup” Shih Tzu. Neither of these “labels” are recognized by any Kennel Club. When someone advertises them as such, it is simply a fancy way of saying their dogs will most likely be on the smaller end of the standard. And some feel that if they tag them as “Imperial” or “Tea-cup” they can ask more money for them. My full grown dogs weigh as little as 8 lbs. which is at the lower end of the standard and as much as 12-15 lbs and no one can guarantee how small or large your puppy will be full grown.

Connie holding Coco AgainI LOVE my dogs! They are members of our family! I have raised them just as you would your child. They are NEVER crated and they are well fed (the cashiers at Publix envy themJ) and they are played with and vetted regularly. I decided to become a breeder because I love Shih Tzu’s and want to share the breed with people that will love and appreciate them for the exceptional, loving and playful companions they are.

Shih Tzu’s are VERY people oriented and make wonderful pets for people of all ages and lifestyles. Their easy going nature allows them to get along well with other pets and kids although as with any pet, small children must be supervised to ensure they don’t hurt the puppy. Shih Tzu’s are lap dogs, they love to cuddle and make you happy. They are extremely smart and quick to learn because they want to please you.

I am dedicated to providing healthy and well-adjusted Shih Tzu puppies to quality homes. My adults even act like pups, cute as all get out and have wonderful temperaments! I hope you enjoy looking at my babies and that whether you decide to purchase a Shih Tzu from me or someone else, I hope you find a Shih Tzu puppy that gives you the joy and happiness that each and every one of mine give me!

Please call or email me for more information – We’d love to hear from you!
