Hello, My name is Terri Strout. We have been showing and breeding dogs for over 10 years. We are a small hobby breeder of darling little Shih Tzu. Our dogs live in our home and have a large fenced yard to run and play in. My children are home schooled, so we are here with the dogs most of the time. Our puppies are raised with a lot of loving care and attention.
All of our Shih Tzu are AKC registered. Many of our Shih Ttzu come from champion lines and have tiny quality lines behind them. A special thanks to Shelby, Pam, and Paul for our wonderful ladies and gents.
We have three beautiful daughters who are all dog lovers. Our girls are all home schooled and have been around dogs all of their life. We have always had dogs in the house and are active members of our local dog club where most of our Shih Tzu complete an obedience class. Our two younger daughters have been very active in showing, handling and grooming.
Our oldest daughter Rachael, her husband Jon and their new baby boy Brody, live in North Carolina. They are the proud owner of two tiny imperial Shih Tzu, Fergie and Spike. These little guys are like children to them and spoiled rotten.
Our second oldest daughter Meredith lives in Northern Kentucky. She started showing dogs at the age of 13 in confirmation and agility. She has traveled all over the US to AKC shows. She has also taught obedience and confirmation classes at our local dog club. She had her first champion miniature poodle Russia, at the age of 14 and her second champion Sherry, at the age of 15 with group wins. She was the #1 Jr. Handler in the US at the PCA Nationals in Baltimore, Maryland in 2004. She also has agility titles on her whippet, Jack.
Our youngest daughter Alexandra is a huge help in caring for, grooming, socializing our Shih Tzu puppies and training our adults. She is currently showing and handling dogs, traveling all over the US to AKC and UKC shows with several big wins and finishing championships. She has also started assisting in obedience training and instructing confirmation classes at our local club. See Alexandra’s Page!
