We are Lindsey Fennell and Alicyn Yaffee (mother and daughter) who adore Shih Tzus.  Lindsey has been breeding Pomeranians since 2004,  When Alicyn brought home a Shih Tzu, Lindsey fell in love with her and together we decided to breed Shih Tzus also.  We have  spent many hours of research  before selecting the parents of our Shih Tzu line.  Lindsey has a bachelor degree in biology and Alicyn has years of experience through her years in 4H.  We know how genetics work, how to recognize health and temperament problems. We knew what we wanted, excellent representatives of the breed that were not only gorgeous, but as close to the AKC standard as possible.  In addition, they had to be free of any genetic problems, healthy and have stable, loving temperaments.

We are very proud of   Shih Tzus moms and dads and the puppies they have produced ,We strive to improve the breed with every litter born here at Cobb Mountain Shih Tzus. Our puppies are all AKC or CKC registered,  come with a health guarantee, registration papers, age appropriate worming  and vaccinations.  They have been well socialized, comfortable with being groomed and well on their way to being house broken.  All puppies are sold as pets with limited registration and spay/neuter contract, unless discussed before hand.

We live on 3 acres on Cobb Mountain in Lake County, Northern California.  Our Shih Tzus get lots of outside time where we have lots of shade trees, paddling pools, and agility equipment for their entertainment.  The back of our house is dedicated to them, where we have heating and air conditioning depending on the weather.  

We welcome you to come and meet us and our dogs and see for yourself how well we take care of them.
