The SCA is the only shorkie breeders group dedicated to the ethical development and establishment of this Mixed breed.
I am your Dedicated Shorkie Breeder with babies generally form 3-9lbs full grown.
Even though our babies are produced as F1 breeding, (meaning mom and dad are purebred.) I still do all the genetic testing on my parents. The reason this must be done is to make sure my mom's and dad carries no faults for the breed they are. There are many faults that they can have and not show up until later in life after they are retired from our breeding program. The only way to be 100% that your parent's have no faults that they could pass on to their off spring is to do the testing to make sure of it. All my mom's and dads are purebred, registered with AKC and genetically tested showing no genetic faults. Any fault the parent has can be passed on to their babies. Weather it is a fault in both breeds or just one.
For instance, I personally had an issue with progressive Retinal Atrophy, which can only be found by doing a CERF test, until your dog go's blind. At the age of 12-16,,months before my mom's are bred I have them CERF tested. I took one of my future mom's in, and they said she had beginning stages of Progressive Retinal Atrophy. The doctor said Shih Tzu's are the number 1 breed with this problem. I adopted my mom from a VERY REPUTABLE SHOW BREEDER, SHE HAD MANY AKC CHAMPIONS IN HER PEDIGREE. She is now in a pet home living the life of a spoilt child.. Which we LOVE to see for all our mom's. See the article on the bottom of the page for more information on this disease.
So I guess what I am trying to say is just because Shorkie breeders has AKC or champion lines in their adult dogs, there is no way you can tell if they have a genetic flaw unless you do the testing required. Any responsible breeder should do testing on their adults even it they have raised them from puppies. After all the whole point to breeding is to produce HEALTHIER better offspring. When you breed correctly you get a healthier off spring. which in general is making a better fur kid.
Most of my mom are retired by the age of 4-5years old. My moms only have 3-4 litters before they are retired. They are never placed with another breeder when retired, they are spade and adopted into a loving family
Genetically sound Shorkies are best combination of both worlds. Shorkies are the most loyal and loving breed. I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you adopt The Perfect Genetically sound "Fur Baby" for your family
