Bringing Your New Puppy Home,

Our puppies are always thoroughly veterinarian checked before leaving our care @ 8 weeks of age by our well trusted veterinarian. He always comments to us how fantastic they are during their vet check. They are the total package for health, temperament & beauty.  

During their vet check, he checks each puppy for the following and takes about 10 to 15 min per puppy,  

  • Weighs the puppy and records it onto your puppy vet pamphlet.
  • Puppy's temperature — 100 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit is normal.
  • Checks puppy pulse and breathing rate.
  • Listens to the puppy's lungs withhis Stethoscope for any lung abnormalities or harsh lung sounds. 
  • Listens to the puppy's heart with his Stethoscope to detect any heart murmurs, irregular heart rhythm.
  • Examines other internal organs by palpating, or feeling them.
  • Gives the puppy's ears a going-over to ensure they not only look right but also smell right, ensuring there's no infections or parasites.
  • Checks the puppy's genitals to ensure two testicles are present in males and there's no sign of discharge or infection in females.
  • Check eyes up close with his scope.
  • Checks nose.
  • Looks over the skin for any abnormalities.
  • Checks for fleas (We use Frontline flea & tick prevention on our dogs and puppies, to prevent heartworm disease, dermatitis ticks, chewing lice, fleas, flea eggs, ticks, mosquito bites).
  • Inspects the anal region carefully to check for discharge or other signs of disease or parasites.
  • Examines the puppy's mouth to see that teeth and gums look as they should.
  • Checks the belly button for an umbilical hernia (although common we typically have none due to our hand delivering the pups).
  • Checks the puppy's joints for normal movement and the kneecaps will be checked to make sure they are not loose. 
  • Checks nails and trims if needed (we do this ourselves usually).
  • Give the puppy the start of their vaccinations.
  • De-worms each puppy and sends home a follow up dosage (will be either done for you or in your to go bag).

Our astounding lifetime of our dog genetic guarantee is completely unmatched and unheard of in the dog world. We are that dedicated to the Zuchon and the constant pursuit of knowledge on our dogs. You won't find anyone else standing behind their puppies with such confidence. In order to provide these amazing guarantees we must also take various precautions that we know to be of utmost importance. Therefore no puppy is scheduled to be viewed (for any reason) before being fully vet checked and received their first vaccine. This usually takes place around 8 to 9 weeks. This time frame is on a per litter basis if we think more time is needed. In this same regard for obvious reasons no puppy is guaranteed or able to leave our home until their vet check has taken place.

We don't just love our puppies. We also love the families we place them with. We sincerely care about their success together as companions and are forever a part of our furry family.

Our Zuchons are smart, personable, super cuddly, very loving, easy to train and naturally gorgeous. They are very patient, easy going dogs making them great with children and other animals. They come in a big variety of coats from curly to smooth, and everything in between and  various colors and combos such as black, white, chocolate, caramel, apricot, red, red/brown, brown tri-color white tri-color, black & white, white & black, brown & white, white & brown etc. They range in size from 5 to 18 pounds as adults on average depending on the puppy and have a long life expectancy of 18 years. Being a hybrid they are healthier than their predecessors the Shih-Tzu & Bichon and typically have no common health issues. 


Each puppy comes with either a Lifetime genetic guarantee or a 5-year genetic guarantee(your choice), health & immunization record, along with a puppy care pack to get you started. We reserve the right to choose what puppies are made available and when. We start their litter box training at 4 weeks and it works like a dream for long-term use, house training, travelling etc. The litter we use is earth friendly and biodegradable and doesn't resemble anything else in your home discouraging accidents. So when your puppy arrives home your free to enjoy him or her, rather than clean up messes.

Our Location,

Our dogs and their puppies are an extensive source of deep love and happiness that is truly fulfilling.  All of our love and an immense amount of laborious effort go into our puppies and their parents. This endeavour requires all of our time and an endless amount of finances to ensure our puppies and their parents are exceptionally cared for at all times with or without a current litter. This doesn't just start with the birth of a litter, (a considerable misconception to those who don't know the time and costs involved). It takes years of preparation and commitment for each parents entire lifetime. It's an all day every day 24/7, 365 days a year, 15 + year investment with no days off and no vacation time away that we are fully committed to. 


Our dogs are our family companions with free run of the home, property and laps! (NEVER kenneled)!

purchase details

Being patient, cuddly and gentle in temperament they are excellent with children. They are attentive to children of all ages and love to interact, make eye contact and play with them creating uniquely special bonds with them to remember for a lifetime. Teddy Bear Zuchons are calm, gentle, lovable and cuddly, and because of this, they were originally bred as companions for handicapped children who needed a cuddly and squeezable dog that would gladly handle hours of snuggling without becoming irritated or nippy.

Our Written Guarantees

Food and Treats,

Having zero health issues in our dogs and their puppies in the last 15+ years of living our Zuchon dream, we can confidently guarantee our puppies are free from any genetic flaws and pass that amazing health happiness on to you. We offer our standard 5 year genetic guarantee, or our unprecedented Lifetime of your dog genetic guarantee. In the event of death due to a genetic tragedy you would be able to choose a replacement puppy.​ We do not cover vet costs or other ownership expenses.
