ADOPTION PROCESS


I want to make sure my tiny Shih-Tzu puppies are the right fit for you and your family, as well as making sure I'm the right breeder for you.  

​Step 1: Fill out the puppy adoption form. This will tell me about you, your family, and what you are looking for as well as things that you might be concerned about that I can help you with. 

Step 2: Once I receive the adoption form, I will look everything over and set up a time to call you. This is a great time for you to have a list of questions for me! These calls are usually 30 - 45 minutes, it's wonderful to connect and get to know each other a little bit more. Choosing your breeder is a VERY important step in finding the right puppy for your family.  It is extremely important to connect with the breeder before ever choosing your puppy. ​

Step 3: Once I make the puppies available at 4 - 6 weeks of age, those on the EWL will pick their puppy in the order that I received their deposit. Half of the balance is due once you choose your puppy, the remaining balance is due 3 weeks before your puppy comes home. ​

Step 4: Any puppy that is available in the Nursery, depending on the age of the puppy, half or the balance in full is due when puppy is chosen. ​

Keep in mind, all of the puppies in the Nursery will be available until I receive a firm commitment and notification of payment being sent. At that time, the puppy will be stated as Adopted. ​
