Welcome to Half Pint Puppies! 
We own and operate a small breeding kennel located in Southwestern Iowa - about 30 minutes from Council Bluffs.  All of our breeding dogs and their puppies live in our home and get handled daily.  The puppies are whelped and raised in our dining room. 

We have 3 breeds of dogs:  Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Shih Tzu, and Bichon Frise.  Our main focus is two of the "designer" mixes -- Cava Bears (Cavalier King Charles x Shih Tzu/Bichon) and Shichons -- aka "teddy bears" (Shih Tzu x Bichon).  We may have purebred shih tzu puppies available from time to time, and it is possible we'll have an occasional litter of Cavachons (cavalier x bichon) or Cava Tzus (cavalier x shih tzu). 

We offer a 1 year health guarantee against genetic defects, and all of our puppies have passed a veterinarian exam prior to being offered for sale.  They have had their first puppy shot and have been wormed.

Our puppies are well socialized, and come to you "pre-spoiled".  They will have a toy which has been slightly used so it smells like their littermate(s).  It is supposed to help the transition to their new home.  They also get a packet of the food they've been eating.

Delivery is available within approximately 3 hours of the Omaha NE/Council Bluffs IA area.  Our rates are reasonable, but our schedule is very limited.  Please contact us for details.
