Just curious as to why the author of this topic has posted about a dozen different times in the past 2 to 3 days. He always opens a new topic, but talks about the same thing, the shih-tzus.
In my opinion, I would think it would be better to post it all as one topic, instead of opening a dozen or so topics about the same thing? I'm new here, so maybe he is following proper procedure, but it seems he is re-posting the same thing over and over?
Any other opinions? Perhaps someone with more experience on the website could explain the correct procedures for us to follow, when posting about the same or closely related topic repeatedly.
Shih-tzu puppies should not be sold before 8 weeks of age, preferably 10 weeks.
Why would you buy a puppy from a pet store though? You will know nothing about the background of the puppy, except what the pet store employees tell you. You will know nothing about the breeder, the parents of the dog nor their temperments or genetic backgrounds.
I know, I'm sorry but he's really starting to get on my nerves! I don't even think he's old enough to use this site... i think he's twelve. he keeps ranting and raving about a lady who sold him a puppy with parvo on the side of the street. Well, you can't really expect much from a lady selling dogs out of a box on a street corner. She told him he was healthy, but offered no contract and lied about the dogs age. Can't expect much really, you just have to hope she's not lying. It is sad, and I would be mad too but, started 12 different threads all about it?? Is that necessary?? hope I didn't offend anyone.....

Ok Then Sorry For Asking Questions About Raising A Dog I Guess I'll Just Buy Another Dog And Not Know How To Raise Him And Not Know Anything And Then Maybe He'll Die Because I Didnt Ask Any Questions. Thats All For Me

Bryanu-I'm sorry about your pup, he was so cute. I hope you have better luck with your next dog. Try to find a breeder, you will have better luck. Pet store puppies are not good to buy, they come from bad conditions and are at risk of being sick and not well bred. Plus they cost the same as what the breeders charge. If money is an issue, go to the Shih tzu rescue, Furrypaws. You will have to wait but it will be worth it. Good luck.
from what i've seen about 7 weeks is the youngest. and prices would most likely range from about $599 and up!
and no one is complaining about you asking questions.....i'ts just that you keep starting a new post for every question, so it's hard to keep up! piece of advice......maybe just have one post, and post all of your shih-tzu related questions there!
bryanu, you are not the only person that has done this, so calm down. Here is suggestion for you. You can locate your topic on Shih Tzus, or any other subject. Click on edit, and add a question. Then bump your topic to the the top of the page so everyone can read your new question.
