New Champion! Soon To Be Grand Champion "Eddie"

Judge: Ekarat Sangkunakup, Gold Gate Shih Tzu Fanciers, San Jose, February 2011. Judge: Ms Carolyn Taylor, NorCal Toy Show, San Jose Februaruy, 2011.

Yeah!! it's Official Amitzu Special Edition is now a Champion! He acheived it on February 10, 2011, and picked up 6 Grand Champion points the next 3 days. Then the following weekend he got three (5) point majors and one (3) point over multiple Shih Tzu Champions each day for a weekend total of 18 point, so add the 6 he has 24 of his 25 Grand Champion points in back to back week-end, outstanding.

I made a stupid stupid mistake I forgot to get up early one day and move him up from the classes to the Best of Breed, so he probably would have completed his Grand Champion in 2 week-ends if I hadn't been so stupid!!! Very proud of you little man, I'm so sorry I blew it. So, glad you are so forgiving!!

"Imperial" "Teacup" "Tiny Shih Tzu " CAUTION!

Make sure you know what your getting before you bring your little bundle home!!

Visit the official AKC Shih Tzu website and read the truth . You don't want to be one of those caught in a puppy marketing scam, calling them Imperial Shih Tzu, Teacup Shih Tzu, Tiny Shih Tzu. They have renamed Shih Tzu to attract buyers. Many on the web ads look like they have been breed to smaller breeds back in their background, many have lost the beautiful big Round heads & eyes, and have developed narrow down turned noses, and pale (fading) pink skin around the rims of the eye, nose, and lips. Dark cole black is what the standard calls for unless they are a blue, or liver. The history of the breed is also on the AKC site and shows that there is no other breed that was brought out of Asia. The is no proof of separate Imperial Genes (I wish they would come forward with the stud book record that backs their claims). Please just be careful if you truly want a true genuine Shih Tzu.
We breed our dogs to AKC Shih Tzu standard and have many beautiful representatives of this beautiful breed. Again I want to stress the uttmost importance to do your homework and visit the official AKC Shih Tzu website
