Welcome to Shih Tzu                   Mystique!

NOTE:  Our website is currently under reconstruction.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  If you are viewing on your smart phone, you may not be able to see our website appropriately.

We are a very small in-home, licensed breeder of AKC Shih Tzu puppies located in southeast Georgia (St. Marys, Georgia), just north of Jacksonville, Florida.

Please revisit us often to view our updates!  There are not many breeders of high quality Shih Tzu in Georgia or northeast Florida, so we are pleased that you found our website!

For years we have concentrated only on champion line Standard Shih Tzu.  Currently we are transitioning our small breeding program to focus more on the Chinese Imperial Dog.  These puppies will be well under the breed Standard of 9 to 16 pounds, averaging around 5-8 pounds at maturity.  We are very excited about this transition so far, and we have produced many Imperials! 

I am a member of the Chinese Imperial Dog Registry (CIDRA), and tiny Shih Tzu may be registered when they are of required age, 14 months.  Requirements are that the dog must be under 9 pounds, less than 9 inches from shoulder to floor and less than 9 inches in length from shoulder to the base of the tail.

We are not discontinuing our standard lines, however.  We have girls now (Sienna and Raven) that are standard girls.  We are pairing these girls with Chinese Imperial males in order to bring our much-loved lines down in size safely and responsibly!


Please see Brooklynn, Lacey, Brandy,and Sienna's Nurseries to see our new arrivals!  Raven, Sommer and Hannah are expecting puppies soon!



Thank you for visiting Shih Tzu Mystique, and we hope to hear from you.  We welcome any and all questions, and you are welcome to schedule an appointment to visit our Shih Tzu Zoo in person!
