Short review: we absolutely loved working with Wendy and will continue to do so. She was fantastic through the process and I'd highly recommend her.
I cannot say enough good things about Smart Shih Tzu and the Smart family. We were introduced to them when we watched a friend share picture as they went through the process go getting a puppy. I followed the page and it was immediately evident how much they loved, not only the puppies, but all of their dogs.
I have always had Shih Tzu's and love their demeanor. We had had recently to put down one of our two dogs and I reached out to Wendy as she was putting together a waiting list.
Shortly after, she posted that they were actually going to re-home one of the moms, who was 4. She said that they believed that the dogs should be able to have a furever home and long enough to enjoy it. I think it speaks volumes about her values and the type of breeder that she is. We decided that, since we already had a 4 y/o Shih Tzu, that it made perfect sense to bring in Tiara who is about the same age.
I can only imagine how hard it as been on Wendy and her family to re-home a dog they had for 4 years. We tried to be conscious of that through the process. Tiara is settling in beautifully and our family has fell in love with her.
I can not recommend Wendy and Smart Shih Tzu highly enough.
