Healthy Puppies

To Our New Parents,


At Southern Magnolia the dogs we breed are healthy, happy beloved members of our family. We take every precaution to provide our new family’s with the healthiest of puppies possible, home-raised, vaccinated, wormed and given a lot of love.

However, we do acknowledge that there are unforeseen issues that may occur at any point in a dogs life.  We do make every effort to only breed the most healthy Shih Tzu’s. If a hidden genetic issue does come up, be assured we retire the dog or dogs from breeding to provide only the most healthy puppies to our clients.


Our health guarantee is effective for the first year of your puppy’s life.  We guarantee the health of all major organs of our puppies until your puppy’s one year birthday.  We will replace your puppy with another puppy if your vet has determined a genetic fault is present in a major organ.  Our guarantee is only valid if your puppy has been under the protection of a health insurance plan of your choice.  Please have the confidence in us that we try our hardest to do what’s best for our dogs, their puppies and we stand behind our good reputation, our healthy dogs and our health guarantee.

With puppy health insurance in place should you need it,  your financial needs will be covered, your puppie's health needs will be covered, and we will have the peace of mind knowing everyone is cared for.  Information on  two Pet Insurance Companies have been included in your puppy information packet. One provided by Truepanion and the other by The Americana Kennel Club.  However, you may find other pet insurance companies that provide insurance for your pet.  We have worked together with Truepanion to obtain a special offer for your puppy when using the PROMO CODE provided in your information packet. Activate your policy with them on the first day you receive your puppy to obtain immediate coverage for your Sounthern Magnolia Shih Tzu puppy.  The moment you call and  tell them you are taking your puppy home, you will receive immediate coverage, no payout limits  and Vet Direct Pay. The American Kennel Club Pet Insurance information is also included in your puppy packet. AKC provides first month FREE for their Accidental and Illness coverage. Many vets are also recommending the following companies for pet insurance. Trupanion at, Healthy Paws at , Fetch at  

Anything can happen in those first few days at home with your new puppy!  We care a great deal about the health of your new puppy and wish you a long, happy, healthy life together.


Since 2006 our dogs and puppies have enjoyed the added benefits of NuVet Plus Health Supplement. None of our dogs or puppies have any skin issues including hot spots, yeast or bacterial infections or dry itchy skin. All their ears are healthy and free of yeast and bacterial infections as well.  Their eyes and immune system are strong and they all live a long healthy life due to the immune system boost they receive from NuVet Plus.  We believe so strongly in this product that it's part of our Health Guarantee. Our Health Guarantee is only valid if your puppy remains on NuVet Plus once you take your baby home with you. We recommend the Canine Powder for your first order as that's what your puppy has been on since learning to eat.  Whether giving the powder or chewable the dose is half a serving since your puppy is under 5 pounds, so instead of 90 servings you'll be getting 180 servings. For about .25c a day you can improve your dogs health, quality of life and longevity! A Small Sample of NuVet Plus has been included in your Puppy Packet. Order online at or call 1-800-474-7044 and use ORDER CODE 838908 to start receiving your order.
