It makes sense our puppies impress!

Meet our Ladies!

 

Our girls keep busy!  They love to play in the yard, run on their daily off leash walks (as seen these videos), chew on bones, and catch some restful naps in the sun.  Our dogs only become mothers once they have been carefully assessed and given ample time to mature physically and emotionally.  Motherhood is hard work, but our girls love their babies and give their puppies such great care and nurturing.  We are so proud of them.

Our Lovely Ladies

Java

-Tricolor

- 15 pounds

I'm a sweet and fun loving girl who is more reserved in nature.  I love to play and I live for a good cuddle, but I won't push in to get it and I'll wait politely for my turn.  I'm mischievous and love to race off for my own adventure just as the off leash walk ends.  Keeping my humans guessing makes life a little more fun!

Raya

- Apricot patch coat

- 18 pounds

I'm the clever one!  If there is something interesting, something squeaky, something worth watching or something exciting to lay on, I've spotted it!  I love bird watching, swimming in the lake and playing non-stop with my brother, Toby.  I'm pretty entertaining to have around.  I'm also passionate about babies.  I'm present for almost every puppy delivery at BabyBarks because I LOVE to see and meet the new puppies that are born.  

Gracie

- Solid apricot, white markings

- 11 pounds

I'm a confident, snuggly girl with a heart full of love.  Give me a belly scratch and some quality time and I'm in heaven!  Of course, playtime is pretty awesome too!  I have a blast play-fighting and chewing on my bones. I'm a favourite with any child who visits. They all come back asking to play with Gracie some more and I love it!

Nugget

- Apricot Patch 

- 8 pounds

I have a compact and tiny build for that "cute as a button" look.  I'm a playful and independent girl who loves to check on my humans and then find my own adventures and romp with my puppy pals.  My soft spot is snacks, so I stick right with my human on our off leash walks.... you never know, there might be hand outs!

Petra

- Black and White Patch Coat

- 10 pounds

I'm a gentle, sweet and quiet natured girl.  My sole goal in life is to sit with my human and snuggle close for a cuddle. I'm the perfect dog for a lower energy setting where I can spread my love and my super soft snuggles!  Want to know my secret passion?  Playing in the sprinkler!

Kiwi

- Solid tricolour (Black, tan and white)

- 10 pounds

I'm the sweetest girl to ever walk the planet.  I'm quiet natured and reserved.  Yes, I can get excited and dance with joy, but generally I'm so relaxed and unobtrusive that you wouldn't even know I was there!   I quietly wait for my cuddles and love to sit right next to my special people on the couch. I have a thick, full coat, petite size and the most striking color.

Holly

- Red Patch Coat

- 7 pounds

Do they come any cuter?  Nope!  I think almost every family that visits BabyBarks asks to take me home!  I'm a gorgeous little lady with a sweet and playful personality to match.  I love going for our off leash walks and although I do my share of running, my favourite spot to be is right at my human's heals!  Walking with friends is the best! I have a heart of gold and if there was a perfect dog title, I'd definitely be in the running!

Leia

- Light Apricot

- 13 pounds

I'm an absolutely lovely girl in every way!   How could I not be with Chewie and Kiwi for parents?  I absolutely love people and can't wait to be picked up for a snuggle.  I'm an athletic and love running on our walks and am passionate about playtime.  I also love going for a dip in the pond when the weather is warm (and even when it's cold!).  Swimming is pretty fun!

Mocha

- Apricot patch coat

- 12 pounds

Sweet, gentle natured and people focused.  Java is my mom and I've inherited her thick and soft coat and her wonderful, sweet and gentle temperament.  I'm an easy going little lady who is kind to my friends and doesn't need to be the boss.  I love to play and run, but attention from my humans is my favourite.

Ellie

- Iron Grey Tricolour

- 19 pounds

have a unique coat that is light silver when cut close and grows out to be almost black once it's an inch or two long.   I'm a favourite, but I'm modest enough that I haven't figured it out yet.  Other than my extra soft coat and teddy bear looks, why do they love me? Despite giving such awkward kisses that they are charming, I'm also a ridiculous amount of fun.  I swim every chance I get, I love to completely burrow myself in snow and pop up for the surprise, I have a symphony of verbal expression, I love walks so much that my heart almost bursts if I think I can't go and I love, love, love to be picked up and cuddled. 

Prairie

-Tricolor

- 10 pounds

I'm a walk lover, a bone chewer and a serious people pup.  I can't wait to please and have laser focus during training times.  I love to impress while on the leash or working on some new skills.  I have such a lovely, super soft coat and what amazing color!  My puppies are too cute for words!

Mint

- White with tipping

- 20 lbs

Just like my mother, Raya and my sister Ellie, I'm a girl who has a symphony of verbal expression and an incredible sense of humour.  I'm so much fun and I can run like a triple crown race horse!  Look out world!  But don't take that to mean I'm naughty.  I have the sweetest heart and I live to please.  I'm such a special girl and I have a heart of gold.

Whisper

-Apricot Patch

- 10 pounds

I am such a beautiful girl, I don't think pictures do me justice!  I have a lovely full coat, a shorter nose length and that perfect Shih Tzu pattern.  If you think I look a little like Zephyr, you'd be right because he's my daddy!  I'm am such a sweet natured girl!  I love to wag at new people and give them kisses but my favourite thing is grabbing something fun, like a bone, and showing off my treasure to guests or those I love.

Chai

- Black and tan

- 9 lbs

I'm sweet, gentle and loving!  I have a nice full coat and my teddy bear curls are gorgeous!  I love to snuggle and will sit on a lap for hours.  But when you put me down, you won't be able to keep up because I can run like the wind!  Like so many of my friends and cousins, I'm a water lover.  You'll often find me knee deep in the pond enjoying some splashing.

CarAmel

-Apricot with white markings

- 11 pounds

People.  People. People.  That sums up my passion.  Yes, I love to play and I love to leap and I love to go on walks, but if my loved ones are near by, I can only go for so long without checking in!  I stand on my hind legs and do a fancy dance just to make sure I've caught their eye and impressed them.  Will they pick me up for a cuddle?  Even better!

BlueBerry

- Apricot patch coat.

- 11 lbs

Yes, you aren't imagining things!  I have blue eyes .  Where did I get these unique show stoppers?  From my dad!  Shih Tzus can carry a recessive gene for blue eyes and my dad is a purebred Shih Tzu who regularly sires blue eyed babies.  I lucked out to be one of them.  We aren't sure if this is a trait I'll pass on to my pups, but since I'm sweet natured, gorgeous playful and a joy to be around, it really doesn't matter!  Enjoy both my puppy and adult photos here.

Licorice

-Tricolor

- 11 pounds

I'm a playful and fun girl who loves to lead the pack on a merry run.  If there is a game, a toy or a bit of excitement, I'm sure to be there, checking it out.  I also love people and can't wait for that snuggle.  I'm a busy and confident girl who is very sweet natured.

Izzy

- Dark Brindle

- 11 lbs

I'm a fun loving girl who has a zest for life and a sunny and bright disposition.  I have a really unique color as a brindle, which means I have something akin to black tiger striping through my coat through the root and hopefully I'll have some puppies to match!  I love attention and running on off leash walks are a favourite.  But what do I like best?!  Swimming in the pond!  I'm a water girl! In fact, I'm wet in this photo.... straight from a dip!

Tia

-Light Apricot

- 13 pounds

I'm a sweet girl with a calm and confident nature.  I love to play with my pals and go on walks.  Is there something to sniff, and adventure to experience or something new to see! I'd love to be part of that.  And when it's all done, I would love to settle down and have a good cuddle.

SaDie

- Red Patch Coat.

- 14 lbs

I'm a reserved girl who expresses what I'd like with soulful eyes rather than verbal expression and jumping.  I have wonderful colouring like my brother Stewart and an awesome silky, non-matting coat.  Looks aren't everything.... I'm sweet, love to be held and always up for an adventure.

Willow

- Red

- 11 lbs

I'm a sweet girl who is soft natured, gentle and eager to please.  I love my people and am always ready for a cuddle!  I have a soft and thick coat with a lovely dark color from my mom, Sadie, and that perfect Shih Tzu pattern that  from my dad, Zephyr!

Maggie

- Dark Apricot 

- 13 lbs

I'm a playful and fun loving girl.  I'm busy on my walks and chewing my bones but I also love to snooze and nap with my pals. I have a shy nature with new people, but when I spot someone I know, I dance like no one has seen a dog dance.  My paws reach to the sky and my body stretches straight up and into the air and I will wiggle like you never thought possible!  I'm in love.... with you!

Cookie

- Apricot Patch

- 11 lbs

I'm a people focused lady who lives for my next cuddle!  I'm not simply a couch dweller, however.... I love to run, run, run on my walks.  I love playing with my friends, chewing bones and keeping the younger dogs in line.  Someone needs to babysit, right?!  When the ball is brought out, I ignore it and stand up on the human's legs and shout "pick me up!" with my eyes.  Oh those cuddles, just can't get enough.

MAcy

- Tricolor

- 11 lbs

I'm sweet, playful, fun loving and gentle natured.  If you have followed BabyBarks for some time you may know my retired parents, Mya and Ripple.  I have a gorgeous soft and thick coat and in show stopping colors. Combining that with my compact and tiny build results in a cute-as-a- button package!

Rose

- Black and White

- 11 lbs

Sweet, people focused, playful and confident.  I'm a pretty special girl. My colors are flashy, my coat is soft and full and I can't wait to meet you!! When you come to visit BabyBarks, I'll be dancing on my back legs, hoping for the pet!

PEBBLES

- Black and White

- 17 lbs

Mint is my mom and Bjorn is my Dad and I think I carry some lovely traits from each of them!  I'm more reserved in nature and not one to push to the front.  But my enthusiasm really comes on when I play with my friends or go on a off leash walk.  I love running like a wild race horse and I'm just sure that I'm faster than every one!  It will be so fun to see if my puppy are as lovely as I am and of course they will be!  It's hard to see in my picture, but I have an incredible unique colouring.  I'm as close to a Dalmatian as a Bichon Shih Tzu comes... I have vibrant and exciting "pokadotting" that is extra clear when my coat is cut short.  It's a very flashy look!

Pumpkin

- Apricot Patch

- 13 lbs

I'm a lovely girl who is passionate about water.  If there is a pond, a creek, a puddle or a water dish, you are likely to find me near it or in it!  I think I get that from my mom, Raya!  But I get my sturdy build and shorter nose from my Dad, Caper.  I'm a sweet girl who loves to visit with my people and enjoys a good romp.

HoBBit

- Apricot

- 11 lbs

I'm a gentle and entirely loving girl.  Pure sweetness!  I'm quiet natured and love a good cuddle or gentle playtime.  I'm Gracie's daughter and Sherlock's sister and I have my mom's thicker build.  I'm a solid little girl, but I don't let that stop me from running and having a blast on my walks.

Opal

- Clean Apricot

- 15 lbs

My sister, Pebbles, and I have a lot of fun!  We play in the yard all day and wait for our walks with a passionate focus.  In case you are wondering, I'm the one being jumped in this picture.  I have a unique coloring in that I was born white and gained my apricot coloring as I got older.  Some clean apricots get darker than others and I am a light hued clean apricot.
