The Shih Zoo business card


The Shih Zoo LLC is a small quality Dog Breeder specializing in AKC Shih Tzus in Centralia, WA. We have been involved with breeding animals since 2007, when we started with our first Shih Tzu litter. We took a break from breeding to attend to our own lives but have returned to our passion. Because we have only a few litters a year, we can focus on the development of our puppies. We have an early canine neurostimulation program (ENS) to assist our puppies in getting the best start to their new life. We feed our animals quality food and ensure they are up to date on vaccinations. Our main priority is ensuring the health and well-being of all our animals from birth until they leave with their forever family - and beyond.


Ours and Yours

We invest time, money, and love in every puppy to make sure you get the best quality puppy we can produce. All puppies are raised on site, inside, and around family. All parents are on site and available for viewing with an appointment. Puppies leave the Shih Zoo at a minimum of 8-10 weeks. Our puppies come with vaccination and worming records, evidence of a health check, a one-year health guarantee, a care package, and lifetime support.

Breeding Responsibly

The Shih Zoo practices responsible breeding. Breeding is planned thoughtfully, puppies are placed carefully, and we take a lifetime of responsibility for the animals we breed.

We provide all our dogs with the highest quality of care including food, water, shelter, exercise, socialization, and veterinary care. Our dogs are kept well-groomed and are loved as family members.

We ensure our puppies are gradually and fully weaned before being placed and do not place puppies before 8 weeks. Puppies who have medical or behavioral exceptions are placed when appropriate. Puppies are safely handled daily to socialize them to other people, sounds, environments, and people.

We encourage current and future owners to ask questions and seek information from The Shih Zoo directly or from our          page.
