Hi Marci.... Mr. Diesel is weighing in at 8.5 pounds and very healthy. He just want to say hello to you! We love him to pieces! He can sit, give both paws and lay down. He is so smart! Almost potty trained as well!! And is a lil luv bug! Keep doing a great job with your pups! "

-Wendy and Diesel

Just wanted to update you on Sully. He is a super sweetie pie and has adjusted well to our family. Very friendly, playful, and sweet. Checked out well at the vet and is doing pretty well with with outside potty breaks. We decided to name him Milo and he definitely seems to respond to his name. "

-Melissa and Milo

" Hi Marci, as you may recall, I got Murphy (whom you originally named Saxton) from you just over a year ago (5 Jul 2013). I thought you might be interested to see how he is doing. For the past five weeks, we've been going to the dog park every Saturday morning, and Murphy loves it. He also really enjoyed the snow this past winter. He and my 2 1/2 year old nephew are the best of friends. (They're more like brothers.) In January, Murphy completed his six week training class at Petsmart. I will be doing some more training with him soon. Murphy is doing well, and I love him so much. He is about 12.5 pounds. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of what he's been up to. "

-Jill & Murphy

Marci has been amazing since my first phone call with my crazy questions! Marci also helped my husband create a wonderful surprise! Thank you for all your efforts and especially our new love Cooper! "

-Beth and Cooper

" Marci does a great job breeding, my Brodie has adapted very well to his new home and loves everyone and is quite the snuggler and loves to give puppy kisses. "

-Amy and Brodie

Marci, I am so happy that I bought one of your Shih Tzu puppies. That was the best thing I ever did. I asked my vet where I could find a breeder of Shih Tzu puppies? They recommended you. I bought Vinny from you in 2012. Vinny was born on March 26, 2012. He just turned 3 years old. Vinny is a wonderful dog. Very affectionate. He has a wonderful disposition. He is very smart. Quick to learn. Well trained. He has an adorable face, his hair is very silky. When anyone sees Vinny they come right up to him to pet him & ask me where I got him? He is the friendliest dog I have ever had. He's very outgoing, I am so thankful I found you, so I have Vinny in my life. "

-Sharon & Vinny

" It has been a busy 1st month to say the least. Sorry for not writing sooner. When we brought to our vet for his checkup on March 1 he weighed 2 lbs 11 oz. Now on April 1 he weighs 4lbs 6oz. We are quite pleased with his disposition and he is one smart shih tzu. He climbed the stairs in our kitchen on the 3rd day we had him so we really had to puppy proof the house with some safety gates. Have to get him outside now to do his business. He gets it right most of the time. I will post some comments on your web page this week. I am attaching some recent pictures, you can post them if you like. Again thank you for being a caring breeder, I would not hesitate to recommend you to others seeking a shih tzu as a family pet. We never forget when we lose our pets, but Maximus is a great start to another chapter in the book of life. "

-Robert and Maximus

Dear Marci, Gigi has been an amazing addition to our home. Her house breaking has been easy, plus she is so smart. I can roll one of the toys and she runs to get it, and then amazingly she brings it back. She loves her belly rubs. Thank you. "

-Nancy & Gigi

Thank you so much, Marci. Bella is a wonderful, happy little girl. She loves people & other dogs. She has the best little personality. She can be a bit of a drama queen sometimes, but what female isn't? :) Anytime she sees someone she waves to them, which she taught herself. She knows sit, paw, dance (which turns into jumping and flipping when she gets super excited for her treat) & two barks for "yes please". She loves playing with her toys & her big brother. Can't believe she is almost a year already. Thanks again for her, I couldn't imagine my life without her. We will be back. "

-Kayla and Bella

Hi Marci! I'm so happy I was able to adopt a puppy from you. I've had her for almost a week and she is absolutely perfect! We named her Suki and she's just a doll. She's quickly learning the ropes and she is not afraid to explore new things. Everyone loves her and she is so welcoming to everyone she has met so far! She's super well behaved and well potty trained, you did an excellent job raising her. I took her to the vet and they could not put her down! They said she has such a great personality, she's super healthy and she has great baby teeth, even though they are kinda sharp :) I have so many picutres of her already and I'm excited to share a few of them with you so you can see how she' doing. Again, thanks so much for everything! "

-Briana and Suki

So I have had Mickey (Formally Stan) for almost a week now and I must say this dog is just amazing. Since he has been home he is nothing but loving and for the most part behaving... He has had only one potty mistake and now understands to go outside. This dog was only 10 weeks old when we picked him up and I never seen a puppy as smart as this one. The dispositions on Marci's dogs are something I have never seen. We just started crating him and he totally doesn't mind. He doesn't even whimper for a second in the crate nor does he go potty in the crate. Marci thank you so much for making our lives so happy with this new addition to our home. We couldn't be happier. "

-Bob and  Mickey

Thank you so much for Sheldon. He is adorable we love him so much. Keep doing what your doing, just having Sheldon in the house helps my MS. You love the puppies. You care so much it shows in their personalities. Sheldon gives me a reason to fight my MS. We will be back! "

-Dee and Sheldon

Hi I'm Cassidy I [and my parents] bought a Shih Tzu from you March 24, 2012. Her name was Samantha daughter of Star born on January 28, 2012, sister of Shannon and Sherlock. I just thought even though its been a few years since we have had her you would like to know about her. Bringing her home we renamed her Sasha. She is very smart and energetic dog. We got her neutered and she has been perfectly healthy. She loves running and jumping around. I was 11 when I got her and I'm 15 now and she has been my best friend ever since. Sasha is considered more than just a dog she is apart of our family. I wish only the best for you and your family for I still remember how heart warming and kind you guys were. Thank you. "

-Cassidy and Sasha

" Hello Marci, Just an update for you on our little man. His name is now Bailey. He is eating like a Champ but I am still giving him the supplement as you directed. He went to our vet on Friday morning and got a clean bill of health. He was so good for her that she wanted to keep him for herself. (Not going to happen on my watch!) I do want to thank you and your Mother for giving us the time to make our decision. I think we made the right one for us. My children and grandchildren love him to pieces. I am attaching a photo for you. It will take me some time to learn how to photo an all black dog but I am sure I will get there. I am thrilled that we found you and your wonderful dogs. "

-Carolyn & Bailey

hello marci, it's me again. but i was on your website and of course i was looking at your puppies....

Rocco got a clean bill of health, he weighs 3.4 lbs... has a great way about him, she said you did a GREAT JOB I also said so. I will keep you posted. Thanks again. "

Love, Patty & Rocco

I bought my baby Nico (formerly Spalding) back in March. I couldn't have asked for a better dog! The seller's information packet as well as willingness to answer any and all questions (no matter how silly they may seem) was nice. The doc was very impressed with the through records that had been given to me. I would definitely buy from this seller again! "

-Stephanie & Nico

Hi Marci, Just thought I would send a couple shots, I took the first two the night we got home. The last two were just tonight. He is doing great and we are adjusting to him well. He is a really good puppy! Thanks! "

-Steve & Louie

Hello. I just wanted to give you a 6 month update on our sweet buy Gizmo (born "Seth" and almost named Bubba..). He is the perfect addition to out family. His temperament wonderful and he is so cute! We are so very happy we found you and Gizmo in May 2012. He is house broken, neutered, and probably a little spoiled. So, thank you again for my wonderful Mother's Day present last year! He is a sweetheart! "

-Robin and Gizmo

" My family purchased our first Shih Tzu at Christmas 2011. We absolutely love this puppy. Never had any health issues, our vet was impressed with the contract, records, etc. provided with the puppy. Everything is in writing. Super caring Breeder with a heart that shows in her pups. Our Katy was housebroken in 3 weeks, she is such a joy. Thank You so much. "

-Ann & Katy

" ...how happy we are with the puppy and your breeding as well, the experience was excellent, the little package you put together with the toy, food and treats was a great touch - we get many compliments on buddy. his disposition is excellent - he is a handsome pup and we are extremely please. "

-Robert & Buddy

I bought a puppy from you last May...Just wanted to let you know that "Bear" is doing very well... He's got the most beautiful face. A tad hyper, but very sweet. Besides, even if you were willing to trade him for a smaller one, I wouldn't give him back. We're too in love with him. I have a friend looking for a puppy and am suggesting she look with you. She knows Bear was to be small, but also understands you can't guarantee the size. Pus she's met him and agrees that he is gorgeous and so sweet. "

-Linda & Bear

" Hi Marci-- Just wanted you to know that Lily is doing great! She follows Hannah everywhere, and looked so sad when Hannah went to school this morning. She is eating, Playing, and has "gone" outside more than in (and when she misses it's our fault-- not fast enough!), and gets right on her cushion when we say "Go to bed, Lily!" We think she is the smartest pup ever, as well as the cutest! She loves her rope toy, thanks for sending it along with her, and thanks for our adorable new family member! "

-Maria and Lily

" Hi how are you, the puppy adjusted well he is lovely and excited every day. We and the kids are so happy to have him and he is so loved here. Our kids called him cookie already on the way home. He is awesome. "
