Welcome to Velveteen Puppies!! 

Did you know the Shih Tzu originated in China and were solely bred to be a companion for Royalty?  

Shih Tzu (pronounced Sheed Zoo) means Lion Dog in Chinese


We are located along the gulf coast in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida.

We have raised small standard, AKC registered Shih Tzu since 2008.  We are a small in-home breeder.   Our “furkids” are members of our family.  They live in our home, sleep in our bed, and lounge on our furniture.  They are very loved and pampered, and your puppy will be as well.

It is our goal to breed healthy, high quality, and well-socialized puppies. Our puppies are exposed to young children, teenagers, adults, and of course other members of our Velveteen pack.  They experience all the scents, sights, and sounds that go on in a typical home and are well adjusted.
