We Have Puppies! Born 11/10/2012

Sadie delivered her litter of 3 boys and 2 girls on Saturday, November 10, 2012.  The puppies were born between 5 and 6 ounces each.

The puppies are black with small white markings. We expect them to stay the colors they are now.

Dam (Sadie) is a 10 lb Shih Tzu with black on white markings. This is the small side of the AKC breed standard which is 9-16 lbs.

Sire (Chip) is a 4 lb Yorkshire Terrier, black & tan. This is the smallest size allowed by the AKC breed standard (4-7 lbs).

We believe staying within the guidelines for health and structure set by the AKC yields the healthiest, most robust puppies!

We expect these puppies to be between 5-8 lbs when grown. Sadie's puppies from previous litters of Shorkies grew up to be a little over 5 lbs. Both mom and dad are healthy and have a history of producing healthy litters.

Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes between 10-12 weeks old.

We are feeding Sadie Natural Choice puppy food. It is corn, soy, and wheat free. We will be worming with diatomaceous earth when the puppies are weaned.
