Breeder Referral

GGSTF offers local Shih Tzu Breeder Referral information for the Northern California area. The Shih Tzu breeders that we refer to are members of the GGSTF and/or the American Shih Tzu Club. Members of either of these organizations must sign a "Code of Ethics" upon being accepted into membership.

GGSTF Code of Ethics

1)   I will support these objectives of the Golden Gate Shih Tzu Fanciers as written in the Club’s Constitution:
      a) To encourage and promote the breeding of pure-bred Shih Tzu and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection;

      b) To urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which the Shih Tzu shall be judged.

      c) To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and obedience trials; and

      d) To conduct sanctioned and licensed Specialty shows and Obedience trials under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club.

2)   I will not publish or discuss any Club problems (general or between individuals) outside of the Club.

3)   To be completely truthful in all advertising and direct communication with the public.

4)   I will represent my dogs as honestly as possible to prospective buyers.

5)   I will attempt to sell my pet puppies within the range of other breeders in my area.

6)   I will try at all times to show good sportsmanship and keep in mind that the good of the breed comes before any personal benefits.

7)   I will try to assist the serious novice to an understanding of the breed.

8)   I will not use the Club logo on my personal website unless I have written permission.

9)   I will supply puppy buyers with a purchase contract, bill of sale, American Kennel Club registration form, Pedigree (at least 3 generations),  and any other appropriate paperwork regarding medical history and general care.
