Look who is looking for you!

They are Shih-cons or Teddy bear pups… a combination of two great breeds – Bichon and Shih Tzu. These little ones are very friendly and social. Low to no shed, they will be between 10 and 12 pounds when they are fully grown. Very sweet and very special – Vanessa is all black, Velma is black and white and their brother, Victor is white and black. These darling little “Angel” pups will be claimed very quickly, so if one of the pups is the baby for you, send in your application right away.

Too young and small to be spay/neutered, with our contract you agree to have your pup altered before he or she is 6 months old. If you don’t choose a low cost option in your area, we can bring your pup back to our vet and have that process done for you. These pups have had all of their puppy vaccines to date. They will need to continue the series of puppy vaccines until they are 16 weeks. Then it will be time for their Rabies vaccine. To adopt, go to our website and click on the link to the application. Complete and send. For more information, call Deanna at 573-889-9691 or Cynthea 573-714-4232. You can email us at

Housetrained? These pups are living in a pen with a dog door to the outside. At this age, they are too young to be any more housetrained than you are. We recommend a piddle pad option until your pup is 12 weeks old. For your dog to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.

We bring 65 dogs to the St. Louis area every Saturday. If you would like to meet this dog, just let us know. We are at PetSmart in O’Fallon, MO the 1st and 2ndSaturdays of each month and PetSmart in Chesterfield on the 3rd, 4th and 5th Saturdays – 11:00 to 5:00. We are at PetCo in St. Charles / St. Peters every Saturday from 12:00 to 4:00.

Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back during the first month and refund your adoption fee less $75. To hold a pup, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit if delivery is not made during the same week.
