Belle & Blues Shih Tzu

I am Jennifer Davis. Belles and Beaus Shih-Tzus keeps a small breeding program in an effort to assure quality in the puppies we produce. Our dogs and puppies are family raised in a clean, healthy environment and are loved and socialized before coming home to their forever family.



We stand behind our furbabies. Our dogs are tested for several genetic health issues through Embark to help ensure a healthy puppy from a quality breeding program. We breed for health, temperament, and the beauty of smooshy faces and lush, flowing hair.

We desire to spread Tzu puppy love as far and wide as we can! I am here for a lifetime for any questions that I can answer!

Join the Belles and Beaus family!

NTW Shih Tzu

I am Tammi Whitener. Located in Southeast Missouri, I breed small sized Shih Tzu. I have been breeding since 2009 and absolutely love this breed! I am a Missouri state licensed kennel, with some living in our home and sleeping in our bed and some in an outdoor heated and cooled kennel. The puppies start potty training outside, using a doggie door and water bottle just like our adults. I take pride in providing quality dogs to good homes, pre-loved and pre-spoiled! I am willing to travel a short distance to meet for a fee and willing to send your puppy with a ground puppy nanny that is great! I will not be flying anymore puppies without an additional fee for my time to take them to the airport. It is about 5 hours round trip to get a pup to the airport for me.


I have been blessed to have help in this part of my life. My husband works very hard to help socialize, groom and care for all of our dogs. I can tell you how much work it truly is when you have 2 or 3 litters at the same time, not only keeping them clean and fed and watered, but keeping straight which puppy is which and keeping the moms clean and taken out to potty.


I have a grown son who is widowed with two daughters, who help to socialize my babies. I take pride in my home and my fur babies, so they will come to you with the same care that I give to my own. My husband has two adult sons and an adult daughter and also has 7 grandchildren that love our babies and help to socialize them.


I am also an accountant, so during my peak busy times, it sometimes takes me a little bit to get back to people. Please keep this in mind!
