Available Mature Puppy






5 month old - Female

10-12 lbs adult estimate


I'm the most beautiful girl possible, both inside and out.  If you are looking for a wonderful, sweet natured and confident temperament, combined with a snuggly people focus and a dash of zesty fun, I'm definitely your girl!  I have a silky and lovely coat that has an awesome depth of pigment as I'm a wonderful and rare red, like my mom.  Bichon Shih Tzus are non to low shedding and I'm a low shedder.  You likely won't see a lot of hair from me, but it still means I wouldn't be preferable for a family with allergies.  I've had a lot of practice socializing with other dogs and I'm a great pal!  So if you have an older dog or plan on getting a younger one, sign me up!  I'd be great for a family with kids or without.  I have medium nose length and an underbite that's apt to stay hidden under my lips.  I'll likely weigh 10-12lbs as an adult.  I was retained as a mom with with my bite shift and coat type, I'm being offered for the first time.  I'm HARD to let go of because my color and temperament are to die for... so some family is going to get really lucky with me!

 I've been working on my kennel training and I'm sleeping through the night, without a potty break, from 10pm to 7:30am.  I'm also doggie door trained and consistently doing my business outside.  I've completed my three part initial immunization series, so I'm safe from parvo and several other dog diseases and ready to start my leash work and join you on fun outings.  No need to quarantine me!  I've been dewormed and my flea and tick treatment is up to date.... so I'm ready for an autumn full of adventures and cuddles.

What is the advantage of a mature puppy?

I can't begin to say how many families have asked us to keep their puppy for an extra month or two and complete some extra training with them and this isn't something that we typically have the time or space to offer! That makes these puppies extra special and rare!  Not only have they completed all of their age appropriate vaccinations ($300+ value), they have had daily focused time put in to teach them to use the doggie door and do their "business" outside.  They've also had daily practice relaxing and waiting patiently in a kennel.  While not every family has a doggie door, the skill of eliminating outside makes regular potty training that much easier because your puppy already has the desire to head outside and do their "job".  These puppies have extra handling, a longer socialization period with other dogs and bath and grooming practice.  Does this mean that these puppies are perfectly behaved?  FAR from it!  They are still puppies with so much to learn but they are of the age that they'll pick it up quickly from a motivated and focused family.  We're excited to see who decides to add one of these well started puppies to their life!
