Welcome to Opal Shih Tzu. We have been involved in Shih Tzu since 1993 after I was taken with the breed while working at a veterinary clinic.  At that time I started attending dog shows, handling classes, showing dogs for other people and after careful consideration I then obtained my first Shih Tzu.

The Shih Tzu was originally bred to be a companion. Their sturdiness and hardiness make them adaptable to city life or country living. The Shih Tzu is a solid, little dog that is heavy for its size.

Opal Shih Tzu are raised in a loving home environment. With thoughtful selection and a limited
breeding program our goal is to produce exceptionally good-natured, affectionate, intelligent, top quality Shih Tzu.  Our Shih Tzu are bred using the Canadian Shih Tzu Standard as our guide to produce the very best Shih Tzu possible. Our puppies are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club and we strive to give them the best start in life possible! They make a wonderful addition to any home.

Inquiries for show prospects or family companions are always welcomed. Our companion puppies/dogs are sold to approved homes only on non-breeding agreements requiring spaying or neutering. Occasionally we have retired adults available to the right home. You are welcome to contact us for more information about our dogs/puppies.

Opal Shih Tzu is located in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada.
