Purchase Information


It is impossible to price a newly born puppy because not all qualities can be told, as they are too young. Each puppy will be evaluated at 4-6 weeks, and will be individually priced. We are very firm on the prices that we set for our puppies. Please remember that a pedigreed, premium quality, and rare colored Shih tzu is not cheap. We are a firm believer that you get what you pay for in the animal world.

Our puppy prices typically start at $2,000

*Prices are for PET only*(sold on a spay / neuter contract)

Breeding Rights are significantly higher to approved breeders only on case by case basis.

Our prices consist of the following: Cost of litter (Emergency C-sections) Parent's Lineage (Pedigree), Quality, Color, Sex, and Size.

It is impossible to know the size and color a puppy will be as an adult. We only give you an estimate based on our knowledge and previous litter experiences. Here at Luxurious Shih tzu, we do not guarantee that a puppy will; reach a given size, it's reproduction ability, it's markings or color. Shih tzu are known to change coat colors to some degree as it matures. 


Once you have decided to purchase one of our puppies you could either pay in full or a $500 Nonrefundable deposit will be accepted to hold the puppy of your choice. Deposit must be received no later than 3-5 business days of the purchase agreement. Once deposit has been received the puppy status will be changed to PENDING on our website/ads to notify potential buyers. If deposit has not been received within the asking time frame the puppy will be put up again for sale. Full payment will be due by the time your puppy reaches 8 weeks of age unless otherwise stated.

AKC Registration Papers

All puppies are sold with Limited AKC which means the dog cannot be used for breeding purposes. All puppies are sold under a strict spay/neuter contract. I expect the client to comply when puppy reaches 6 months of age. AKC limited registration papers for your puppy will be released AFTER proof of spay or neuter is received. I will only grant Full AKC to responsible in home hobby breeders on case by case basis on dogs that I feel that are breeding quality. Full AKC will be significantly higher, depending on pedigree/lineage/conformation. I will not sell Full AKC on females that are estimated to mature under 5lb no exceptions.


We offer shipping all over the United States, so if you're looking for a Shih tzu puppy out of California, we can help. Our puppies will be ready to ship once they are 8-12 weeks old, and once they have reached 2 lbs. We ship our puppies with our professional nanny, she will hand deliver your puppy to you for $350-$400.
