We are small hobby breeders here in the small 


town of Wells on the coast of Maine.{The town 


over from Ogunquit Maine}

 

 


Wells/Ogunquit Maine is a Beautiful tourist 


town in the Summer months, Plus people come 


from all over in the fall to see the fall  


New England foliage.  We would not ask to live 


in a more beautiful place.

Our Home

In our opinion we believe Shih Tzus and 


Miniature Poodles are the most loving breeds 


of dogs. Both breeds have the biggest 


hearts in the dog world we believe, but again 


we are partial to them.  Yes That is our opinion 


but we think most people who have had 


them or been around them would totally agree 


with us. 



Shih Tzus & Poodles are considered non- 


shedding & Hypo allergenic. 



They have hair not fur.


With these traits they are very appealing to a 


lot of people.



Shih Tzus & Poodles are completely different. 


Not the same in any way except for how much 


they love their humans and how loving they 


are. 



So Please read up on the breed you may be 


interested in before contacting us about a   


puppy or an adult.



We have a small breeding program of AKC Shih 


Tzus and Miniature Poodles.  This assures 


quality not quantity. Also assures that we have 


time for all our adult dogs and the puppies. 


We are not a kennel in anyway. All our dogs 


she our home and everyday life.


We will be honest We are into Bloodline. We


look for lines that  we know will complement 


our program. Health is also the up most 


importance. Health and Lines go hand in 


hand. 


Temperament also plays a huge part here at 


Tatnicland. 


Size and colors are also in our mind when 


breeding but is not top priority. We only have 


as many litters a year 


that we know we can handle to make sure we 


have time to devote to each puppy and 


mommy. 



All our Shih Tzus and Miniature Poodls have 


amazing Temperaments. They are raised with 


kids, adults and other dogs and of coarse 


under our feet. We feel this is what makes our 


dogs have the best of everything.


You could not ask for better puppy or dog from 


Tatnicland.. 

 


Tatnicland Shih Tzus are in the range of 7-12 


pounds for females and 5-12 pounds for males. 


We do not bred for the real small ones nor the 


real big ones. Most of ours are in the range for 


the AKC standard.{ In saying this we do get 


tinies/smalls and some on the bigger side of 


standard occasionally this is due to the 


bloodlines they carry}. This means our puppies 


will be good size for the young and old. The 


size we produce is perfect for kids to dress up, 


for light wrestling, hiking with an active 


family or just to find a nice warm lap to curl 


up on.  


Shih Tzus are a hardy breed considering their 


size. The one thing we love about this breed is 


the range of colors they come in. We love the 


harder colors to find, We do not use the word 


rare or exotic as they are not. We like to say 


they are an unique color. They are head 


turners for sure.  Some of our adults are colors 


you don't see every day. We also have adults 


that are common colors in the bred. So 


everyone should be able to find one they love.  


 


***** Shih Tzus grow at different rates. Even 


though  parents are of one size does not mean 


the puppy will be that size. The puppy could be 


smaller or larger than their parents. 




Tatnicland Miniature poodles are in the range 


of 11 inches to 14 inches tall. {Poodles are 


measured by height not weight} most puppies 


will be in the Miniature Poodle AKC standard 


In saying this we will get large toys and some 


over 15 inches at times. This is also due to 


bloodlines they carry. Poodles are very out 


going, athletic and  energetic. They will make 


wonderful pets, but Poodles need something to 


do, When we say this we don't necessarily 


mean a job to do, but stimulation. They love to 


hike, walk and run. If they don't we feel they 


can get into trouble and could potentially hurt 


themselves.  



Poodles are very smart and get bored easily. 


We absolutely love this breed, and couldn't 


imagine not sharing our home with them. They 


are very much people dogs and would rather 


be with us humans over other animals. 




****Poodles are not for everyone. So please do 


your research on this bred before jumping into 


buying one. They are completely different then 


the Shih Tzu.




All our puppies will be sold to loving inside 


homes. We will not sell to just anyone. We 


have the right to refuse a sale.


All our puppies are sold with Limited AKC {Pet 


only} Non of my puppies will be sold with Full 


breeding rights.


Puppies will leave here with Contract stating 


they must be fixed by a certain date and age. 


Proof will have to be send to us before AKC 


papers will be given. {you will see the AKC 


papers when you pick up your puppy, so you 


know he/she is AKC registered}. 


  All our puppies come prespoiled, raised under 


foot in our home. We are not a kennel.




*** Puppies will be able to leave around 9-12 


weeks old depending on each puppies 


development. We will determine when they can 


leave our home. { some may have to stay 


longer, each puppy is different}.


All puppies will come with limited AKC, 1st and 


2nd set of shots {if older then 12 weeks 3rd is 


given}, Kennel cough, wormed, vet 


checked, Health guarantee, 


puppy goodie bag, food we feed and pre-


spoiled. 



Please take the time to educate yourself on the 


breed you are interested in if you do not know 


much about them.


 We will be asking you a lot of 


questions about what you know about the 


breed your interested in, plus will be asking 


you about yourself and your family. plus what 


your looking for in a puppy/dog. This is


to make sure you would be a good match for 


one of our puppies/dogs.


Buying an animal young or old is a lifetime 


commitment. So if you do not have the time 


and love to give one please don't bring one 


into your life.


If you do have the time and love to give you 


will have a wonderful best friend for life....


 We ask that everyone read my contract 


before contacting us about one of our 


puppies/adults. This is so you would know 


what you would be signing if you decided one 


of our puppies would be a good fit for you.
