Due to new USDA regulations, requirements and fees, we can no longer offer shipping. We can not and will not deliver puppies. They must be picked up at our facility. We need to observe how the puppy will react to it's new family. We have decided on this policy in order to keep our puppies reasonably priced.In order to keep our puppy prices competetive, we are offering individual options. Each of these options are priced in addition to the puppy price and can be customized as to suit your needs. Each puppy must have a microchip for health guarantee to be valid.Option a) We now have a base price for the puppy only and offer separate options. The base price for a Male Shih Tzu Puppy is $950 and a Female Shih Tzu Puppy is $1050. This option has no additions and must be selected when Puppy is 5 weeks old. Option b) Base Price plus Third Party Pets Microchip Registration. These services are outlined which will help your puppy be returned to you should it ever come up missing. These services do work and many lost pets are reunited with their owners as a result of this service. If the microchip is not registered, pet recovery will probably not happen and your puppy may be lost forever. Third Party Pets uses AKC Reunite Registry which is the ultimate service for animal recovery and protection (requires a microchip offered in option a). The activation fee for Third Party Pets is an additional $50. This option can be added at a later date.
We offer Paypal services for people using Paypal accounts or credit cards for payment. However, we will now have to add a 3.5% service charge to defray costs of using Paypal. We will continue to accept checks, but sufficient time for check clearing must be allowed. Deposits by check for puppies will be ranked in a first come first served basis when check is received by us. No puppies will be released until checks have cleared.Each puppy we breed will qualify for all of the above optional services.A $100 deposit is required to reserve a puppy until it is at least 8 weeks old.All Puppies picked up in Fredericksburg are subject to 7% Sales Tax, by law.
