Welcome to Intuition Shih Tzu


Kristie Miller



Welcome to Intuition Shih Tzu.   We are a small private breeder of only top quality shih tzu.  Our shih tzu are derived from the combined efforts of the top breeders in the United States and Canada. I belong to the American Shih Tzu club and have been awarded the Breeder of Merit by the AKC.  Our mission is to breed for the best health, conformation, and temperament.  Our dogs live in our home.  Our puppies are raised to provide new owners with loving life- long companions.

Shih Tzu is our only breed. We only raise shih tzu to meet the standard set by the American Shih Tzu Club.  We do not breed for the so called Imperial Shih Tzu.  We breed only our AKC champions and strive to produce our next show dog.  We keep a select few  to show and offer beautiful puppies for pet owners to adopt.

At Halfway to Heaven Shih Tzu we breed only for the purpose of producing top quality show dogs with delightful personalities…. not to mention, well-socialized with excellent health.

My breedings are well planned and produce Shih Tzu that meet the standard set by the American Shih Tzu Club as well as quality Shih Tzu puppies that are available as pets to qualified homes.  My puppies have the correct balance, head type and tail set and the most adorable baby doll faces.

In 2008  I fell in love with my first show dog, Reba. What a thrill it was to have such a beautiful bundle of joy.  She was everything I had always wanted.  Reba had the most beautiful movement in the ring and has produced the sweetest most adorable puppies. Her first litter produced my first homebred Champion, “FJ”  CH Halfway To Heaven’s FJ Lookin’ To Cruise.


Enjoy my website.  Give me a call as I do look forward to talking with you soon and sharing “The Love of The Shih Tzu”.
