ChipandDale Shih Tzu 

Loving, smart and georgeous small breed Dogs

My love of Shih Tzu's began in 1998. I was home from work after a back injury and my husband and I were also in the process of building our new home.

The plan was once our home was built , my husband would get his Boxer that he always wanted and I would get my German Shepard.

As life would have it nothing ever goes as planned.

We fell in love with Chip and Dale the very first time we saw them. They were a year old, and were being housed outside in a long large dog run. They didn't run when they first saw me or wag their tails. There was really no emotion at all. All they had was each other. I took these little boys home and they changed my life forever.

I have been breeding healthy well adjusted puppies for 20 years now, and have always offered a 5 Year Health guarantee, I have been fortunate to start out with the Best Shih Tzu from some of the Best Shih Tzu breeders out there who long before me showed and made sure they bred nothing but the best . But in this day and age with breeders not really giving you much more than a years health guarantee and no follow up if you need it. I have decided in order for me to continue your confidence in me , to start health testing . I have had the discussion with my Vet and even though most of the things Shih Tzu get are things that many small breeds are known for, it would be important for me to rule out " Very important Health issues that have affected other Shih Tzu in the past.


So once the snow is gone and I can make a few trips into Fredericton our Vet at Hometown Vet will be testing  Eyes and I will also have full blood panels. My hope is your continued support for what I have done for years , breeding the best little Shih Tzu I can. Our dogs have never had any of these issues and in order for me to continue to keep your trust I feel it's my responsibility to do as all responsible breeders do " Health Test " our dogs.

ChipandDale ShihTzu is located in New Brunswick Canada. We are 20 min from the Village of Chipman. Aprox 1 and a half hours from Fredericton, St. John and Moncton.

 I am not a member of the CKC, but I do breed CKC registered Shih Tzu , but I also breed non-registered Shih Tzu, whose lines originated from my very 1st 3 Shih Tzu; from back in 1997. Chip and Dale and Lulu, these dogs were never registered which means their ancestors cannot be traced, because of that, they do not come with CKC papers or Pure Breed Status. The Canada Pedigree Act has strict rules as to selling of Pure Breed Dogs .  In Canada only dogs who heritage can be traced can be registered with the CKC, those dogs and those dogs alone are the only ones who can be given CKC Pure Breed Status and in doing so , there is a record which is your certificate of pure breed Status that comes with those dogs. It is against the law in Canada to sell a dog as Purebred without its registration papers. You do not have to be a member of the CKC to register pure bred dogs " It is a registry " that is it. I also breed Pure bred Morgan Horses and " The law states that all pure bred animals should be registered" So these registries are in place so we can do just that. Even without member ship. Being a member of any of these organizations does not make me a better and more trusted breeder.

This is Chip and Dale and Our Very first girl Lulu, she lived to the ripe old age of 16 years 

Our first girl Lulu below at 15 years old the year before she passed away.

ChipandDale's are now producing some new colors besides the traditional colors of gold and white and red and white and tri's we have had  solid black's , dobbies  both in gold and reds and this year dark dobbies, brindle's and sable's , chocolate, solid colors like red, and even blues. Blue as described does not necessarily mean a blue Shih Tzu, but yes we have had our first this year out of Jolene a beautiful blue boy. But to qualify for the name blue. The nose, the pads etc have to be blue, it does not necessarily mean the color will be blue. We also had a blue " Sable girl" out of Jolene. She is a beautiful sable color with blue skin , pads and nose. And we also have had Liver colors and Lavender. We are trilled at a new breeding and in anticipation to see just what new color we will produce. They are all beautiful and it's been a joy to watch them change and grow .
