Welcome to 'If The Shih Tzu Fits'
All puppies are raised in our home. They are part of our family and have human contact from the first day.
Our dogs are our children. We are not a puppy mill. We only have a few litters a year.
Mother’s are monitored by a vet through their pregnancy and afterwards.
Puppies are checked by vet the day after they are born.
Our puppies are our babies and WE (THE BREEDER) HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE THE SALE OF A PUPPY ANYTIME BEFORE IT IS PICKED UP OR SHIPPED AND A FULL REFUND RETURNED.
Pricing is for PET ONLY. Pricing will depend on size, color, lineage, sex and overall conformation and quality of puppy.
Males are just as loving as females!
Does a male or a female make a better pet for you and your family?
It’s not uncommon for people to believe that a female dog will make a better pet. We get a lot of calls for people wanting that “special little girl”. For whatever reason they don’t think that females will exhibit “alpha” behaviors like humping and/or marking. A lot of people think that females are more passive and friendly and that they don’t take part in fighting over dominance, which could NOT be farther from the truth.
Most fighting will usually break out between two females.
Males tend to be more affectionate, exuberant, attentive, and even more demanding of attention. The males are very attached to their owners, tending to be more dedicated, reliable and less temperamental. They are more sociable, more accepting of other pets, playful for years, and take quicker to children. Most boys are easily motivated by treats/food, words of praise and are so eager to please that training actually becomes easier. Their playful nature, however, can make males more easily distracted. The boys are more likely to act silly and more puppy-like, always wanting to play games, no matter what their age. The boys are fun-loving until the day they die, whereas girls tend to be more standoffish and dignified the older they get.
Neutered males rarely exhibit secondary sexual behavior such as marking and lifting their legs or humping. Once the testosterone levels recede after neutering, most of these behaviors will disappear if they ever existed. Boys who were neutered early (by five months of age) usually don’t ever raise their leg to urinate.
So before making your decision on that age old dilemma of male verses female, hopefully this will give you some helpful info to think about.
