Our puppies are raised with the Puppy Culture Program!

     Welcome to Squaw Creek ShihPoo. Our family lives amongst the most beautiful farmland in Northwest Washington you will ever see.
Nestled in the Fraser Valley at the feet of the Cascade Mountains, we are tucked up against the Canadian border in Lynden, Washington, approximately 2 1/2 hours north of Seattle.

     We live on a 2 acre island of land surrounded by raspberries, cranberries, blueberries and green pasture. We have nine sweet children and enjoy homeschooling as we seek to live simply.

     Our spacious kennels house our seven Shih Tzus girls - Willow, Buttercup, Lilac, Sassy II, Belle, Daisy and Ivy. 

     After breeding AKC Shih Tzu for serveral years, my focus changed to this cross for several reasons. Shihpoos seem to take on the intellegence, coat, healthy eyes, longer snout and frame of the poodle, while complimenting with the Shih Tzu's calm, outgoing ways. I love this outgoing, hardy, robust cross! They are wonderful with children, most all other dogs and best of all, they are typically NOT yippers, although there can be exceptions occasionally ;) We do not care for the yippy breakable sorts  We exist to bring you a sturdy, healthy  family dog living a life of longevity.

     Our goal firstly, is to provide you with a healthy, problem-free dog. Health is of utmost importance to us.

     Secondly, we breed for personality, temperament and provide early quality socialization, and hands-on care which are major factors in how your dog grows and adapts to your family. We use the Puppy Culture Program on all our litters.

     Our dogs are kept in our spacious, clean kennels. They each have an indoor room with food, fresh bedding(heated when the need arises) and an outdoor run where they can sprawl out in the sun if they choose. They are taken out for runs in our pasture when weather permits.

    Being a native to the royal imperial palaces of China, these dogs do well with outdoor temperatures. However, they much prefer to be indoors at all times, pampered like royalty. That is, after all, what they REALLY are...

    Our careful breeding and management produces healthy, well adjusted puppies. However, we offer a 7 day 100% money back written health warranty on each of our puppies to ensure their new owner knows how serious we are about standing behind our breeding.

Why purchasing a puppy from our family is a great choice...

Our Puppies

  • Have a 7 DAY 100% puppy back/money back written guarantee if puppy is deemed unhealthy in ANY WAY by your vet. Buy with confidence, have peace of mind.
  • Come with a portfolio containing a detailed health record for your vet & information to start your pup out right. This helps to make the transition from our home to yours an easy one.


  • Are fully weaned and sent home with a starter bag of puppy's food and a mama SCENTED blanket to help keep those familiar smells close for the first few days of adjustment.


  • They are socialized with respectful children, adults, dogs big and small, guinea pigs, parakeets...etc. We get wonderful compliments on our family friendly dogs. They run to you, not away from you. It is up to you to continue that wonderful start.


  • Due to a recent increase in reactions to the parvo vaccine, we will NOT give first shots. We will NOT immunize before 12 weeks of age, therefore this responsibility falls on YOU to carry out. Our puppies will arrive with robust, uncomprimised immune sustems. We recommend keeping your puppy away from dog parks, rest stops and all other areas visited by many dogs that may increase rish of any disease. 


  • Are Worm-free! Wormed on a strict schedule using Pyrantol, then Fenbendazole, starting at 4 weeks of age. Worms in puppies can lead to more problems than just weight loss. Diarrhea, coughing, vomiting are common. Only healthy, round food filled bellies here!


  • ARE easily paper/puppy pad trained to keep those first messes where you'd like them.


  • Have had all dew claws removed. This prevents the dog from three things. 1. A forgotten ingrown dewclaw nail can grow in a tight circle and then penetrate the leg. 2. Having a now costly surgery later in life to have them removed. 3. Having the dog chew them off himself...yuck & infection. 


  • Mamma and Papa are owned and kept here with us! With noticed, both may be viewed when you come to visit/view puppies!



    • $50 is non-refundable.
    • $100 is non-refundable if reservation is cancelled AFTER puppy's 8 week birthdate or if you fail to pick up your puppy.   

    • BALANCE DUE IN CASH ON PICK-UP - NO CHECKS ACCEPTED. PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY, WE WILL NOT TURN OVER YOUR PUPPY UNTIL PAYMENT IS MADE IN FULL. You are protected with a receipt and signed legal contract, we however, are not protected when taking a M.O. or check.


    • We expect prompt pick-up, however, we understand life happens. We can hold a reserved puppy up to 7 days past it's release date. After that, we do charge a low boarding fee of $7 per day.


    • As with most rules, there are exceptions. If you have a special circumstance, let us know and we will work with you!
