We lived and bred in South West Michigan for 13 years. We are longtime residents of Michigan. We now live in Central Florida, where we plan to retire at some point in the future. We do travel back and forth to Michigan, so if you are from Michigan and want to get a puppy from us, please give us a call.
I have been involved in breeding since I was very young. My parents were breeders of Doberman's and I grew up around dogs and other animals. As I got older and ventured out into the world, I missed my animals, but I also developed a horrible allergy to just about everything, including pet dander. That is when I discovered my love for the Toy Poodle and the Maltese and that is what started our breeding of toy poodles and maltipoos. I truly love the toy poodle and I love offering the Maltipoo. We are called Red Toy Poodles, but we also have many other colors!

ShihPoo Colors Change
A good rule of thumb when choosing a Shih Tzu puppy is never to base your decision on color. That's because the breed is well known for changing coat colors as he enters adulthood. In fact, by the time your Shih Tzu celebrates his first birthday, he may be a completely different color than he was when you brought him home.
For example, a puppy that has gold hair at birth may turn orange and one that is blue at birth can turn gray by his first birthday—and those born black may lighten over time. The only coat color that remains true is the black-and-white combination.
What accounts for these shifts in shade? Very simply, it's a matter of genetics. Two distinct genes determine whether a Shih Tzu's coat will lighten or gray over time—and what his ultimate color will be.
Fading: If a Shih Tzu carries the "G" gene, his coat will fade as he gets older. You will notice fading in puppies as young as a month old. Fading will continue until the dog reaches his first birthday.
Graying: If a dog carries the Chinchilla gene (CH series) he is likely to change colors as well, but not in the same way as fading. Instead, the dog's coat will turn a rich, silver color.
As with the Shihpoo, Poodles and Maltipoos can also change their colors as they age. Color is not guaranteed!

Covid 19 Precautions
We have started our vaccinations and will be complete early April. During this time and to keep everyone safe from Covid19, we are asking that we meet pick ups at our porch. We can answer all questions and go over all paperwork prior to pick up over the phone. You will bring your contract with you signed and we will give you a copy signed.
Vets & Pet stores are considered essential which means you are able to go to them and as long as we can take our puppies to the vet for a health certificate we are able to send them home. Picking out your puppy, can be done via pictures or videos. There will be no handling puppies at this time (not because of covid). You will meet us at our porch and we will obey social distancing rules. It will be a very quick visit with the puppy as the weather is very warm and they shouldn't be out or away from mom for long. NOTE: I only do the video for those that are not coming to our home. We are very busy raising puppies. Please understand. Feel free to wear gloves and masks. This will continue till Florida is safe!
