Doing Great

We took Lance to the vet after bringing him home and the vet asked if we gave him a bath. I told him we didn’t and he said, “This is the cleanest puppy I have ever seen that has come from a breeder. I can tell that they do a great job.” We absolutely love Lance and he is doing great! Thank you so much.

Our family looked for many months and had no luck to find a male Shih Tzu.. I immediately fell in love with George on her website. I found Dorene and she was so amazing with walking us through the process. She talked with me for an hr and explained all I had to do prepare for his arrival. I got photos of him and updates weekly. The day came to pick him up and I was so excited! We arrived at her beautiful home and i felt an immediate sense of zen. It was so peaceful. She was standing at the door with George in her arms. It was love at first site! She was so thorough on all her paperwork and gave us extra food! He has been home for a week and she has continued to check in on George and support us as a family With any tips we needed! We are so blessed we found Dorene and her family. I have talked about her to everyone! I will adopt again and have a feeling my family will too!

Hi Classy Pups!!!
Wanted to let you know how awesome Daisy/Annie is. I have owned 2 prior Shi Tzu’s, Annie is by far the smartest. She’s clever, catches on quick and is lazy and crazy all at once. Thank you for raising amazing dogs and doing it right.

Honey Bun

Dorene and her family were wonderful and took excellent care of Honey Bun. I could not have asked for a better first family. I wish there was a higher rating than five stars ! I would highly recommend !

Quarantine Pal

Getting Finnick at the beginning of the quarantine was the best decision I’ve ever made. He is an affectionate and sweet little boy. He’s great with people, all dogs, and even met a pet pig. Now one bark just plenty of tail wags!

My Experience

I want to take a moment to share my experience about purchasing my lovely puppy from Dorene and Classy Pups. I have been wanting a dog for several years and had made up my mind to work with Dorene, mainly because I was looking for a family breeder who breeds champion bloodlines. It can be difficult to trust the process especially when you live out of state. Dorene was amazing at communicating at all levels. After the first few phone calls, I was completely confident in my choice. From the very moment that I spoke to her, I was eased by her calm, gentle and honest demeanor. It was evident when I met my puppy at 18 weeks of age, that he had adapted to a calm environment. He too, is calm and sweet and transmits peace. I attribute that to the way he was cared for while in Dorene’s care. My puppy is named Duncan and he is truly a blessing. I will recommend Dorene to anyone who wants a lovely experience while waiting for the arrival of their beautiful and healthy puppy.

Incredible experience

We were looking for a service and support dog for our disabled daughter. We came across your company and found the perfect dog. Our experience with your family was amazing. The care, the support, and the love was evident from the very beginning. I highly recommend your company to anyone who is looking for a dog. We were blessed with the opportunity to now bring some joy and assistance in our daughter’s life thanks to you. I cannot thank you enough.

Thank You

Bear is wonderful. We took him to the vet on Friday. He’s 3lbs of floof and in good health. What’s awesome is that you socialized and trained him so well. He’s great with the kids, has very few accidents and is so playful. He hops like a bunny around the yard! Great job and thank you again.

Thank You

I cannot thank Dorene enough. Izabel is a wonderful puppy. She loves people and children. We have loved welcoming her into our home and she has welcomed us into her life. I have never before brought a puppy home that has been so well adjusted. Thank you again Dorene

Gigi is the best dog ever and we love her so much. People love her, wherever we take her and stop us all the time. I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with her. Thank you again so much!

Kashi is a wonderful puppy and we are positive her healthy, happy nature all started with you, your care and the love you give your dogs! Also she is just the cutest puppy, everyone who comes in contact with her comments on how cute and fun she is.

Awesome experience!

We have been looking for months trying to find a Shih Tzu from a reputable breeder and came across Classy-Pups. There was a litter of 3 that appeared, and we jumped at the opportunity to select Zane as our new puppy. The experience of working with Doren was fantastic. From weekly photos to being greeted at the door with our new puppy. We received a folder with all his paperwork including photos of him since he was born. During our visit to the vet they shared the photos with their team and were impressed that all shots were up to date and he was in excellent condition. I cannot thank you enough for the joy you have brought to our family!
