Quotes Couldn't be more pleased with Brutus. He has bonded with Onyx and is just adorable. Talk more about the pups than the Grand Kids!! So happy we found CJ and her family. Would have a dozen Shih Tzu's if we could. Quotes

Quotes Just wanted to mention you to everyone, CJ. Although I wish my shih tzu came from you,if only I had found you sooner, I will be forever thankful for the help you gave me. Your advice was so helpful and made it so easy for me to care for my boy. I believe the saying "you get what you pay for". A cheaper pup does not compare to the focus, money, time and most of all the love you put into your dogs. I will never again go to the cheaper when I know you are out there. You helping me when it was not even one of yours is priceless and you did it for me without hesitation. You truly are one of a kind. Your "puppy families" as you call them, are so lucky to have you. thank you again! Keep up the good work and I will be in touch. Quotes

Quotes C J is really the best possible person to bring a puppy or older dog into your life. She and her family invest so much love, care, knowledge, and energy into breeding and raising great shih tzus -- and they'll treat you like part of the family too. My Robin is the sweetest dog -- healthy, sturdy, calm, confident, quick to learn, happy to meet everyone, great with other dogs and cats of all types and sizes. C J socialized Robin so well that she was a breeze to housetrain and raise, and every day with her is a joy. Someday, my next shih tzu will definitely be a shih tzu by nine. Thanks! Quotes

Quotes "We got our first pup, Howie, from CJ at Shih Tzus by 9! The experience couldn't have been more pleasant. We were very nervous because this was our first puppy and CJ was more than helpful with everything that we needed. She answered emails on a daily basis and still keeps in contact with us today to see how Howie is doing. When we got to the breeder's house we were greeted by the family and all of their pups. You can tell that they put so much love and care into raising their puppies in the best way possible! We played with the puppies for awhile, asked all the questions we could, and then CJ gave us a care package and our new baby in a swaddled blanket burrito! I definitely recommend taking your time to find a great breeder like CJ to get your pup. We drove all the way from Chicago to get ours and he couldn't be more well-behaved and perfect for us!" Thanks Again for everything CJ! Much Love, Russell and Howie Quotes

Quotes Our dogs turned one yesterday. I could write pages about how wonderful they are. I have 5 children ages 17 to 8. Sparty and Brutus are perfect. They are great with the kids and very very tolerant of smaller children when they come over. My kid have taught them so many trick including peek-a-boo. They swim, the love to hike in the woods, go to soccer practice, and are pretty much up for whatever the family is doing. This summer they were in the Doggie Talent and Fashion show and Sparty won 3rd place. Thank you CJ. Quotes

Quotes Our sweet Kaila is almost 1 1/2 years old now! It was worth the short drive to get this healthy and well taken care of baby. I highly recommend C.J. as a breeder, or I should say temporary mom to all of her pups! She goes that extra mile to make sure they are healthy when they go to their new homes. When we are ready for another Shih-tzu, we will definitely be back! Judy Treptow Quotes
