My name is Ben Tessmacher and welcome to my Shih-Tzu Blog: Shih Tzu Breeding and Care or STBC.

I’ve lived with cats and dogs big and small, all my life and, for over two decades have raised Shih Tzu dogs. They are just so fun to be around.

Anyone who has ever had a Shih Tzu, probably knows that once you have one Shih Tzu, you will want another one. My first Shih Tzu was a female named Jai, then came Marika and then Jemmy. I started adopting new puppies and my first male, Boris became a father of Marika’s puppies. This is when I started to breed Shih Tzus and make it a thriving business. Numerous customers from different states as far as Alaska and even Canadian Provinces have visited me here in my humble abode at tropical Florida just to have their dogs bred with my ever so prolific furbabies.

There’s so much to know about caring for small dogs that sharing it seemed like a good thing to do.

So thanks for stopping by and getting to know us.  I hope you find the information you’re seeking, but if not, you can always send me a message here.
