From her first show at 4 months old, Carter was a pleasure to show.  She was the ultimate show dog, ruling the ring with grace, elegance and a level of decorum that epitomises the Shih Tzu as a breed apart.  She was a reflection not just of her pedigree, but also of the work that we put into her and the love she shared as a part of our family.

Cartier had excellent movement, a top line that most breeders dream of, the perfect "tea pot" tail, and an expression that reflects the companionship and love that form the basis of the breed standard of a Shih Tzu.  We were very lucky to have her in our lives and in the ring, if only for a short time.

From her very first show Cartier showed us what she had by wining not just the Baby Class in her breed, but also by winning Best Baby Puppy Non-Sporting Group: an honour that she continued to win through her time in the Baby Puppy Class.  With an impeccable lineage behind her, Cartier was always destined to be a great success in the show ring and she has not let us down.


      Cartier's achievements to date include:
5 Best Baby Puppy of Breed
2 Best Baby Puppy of Group
18 Reserve Bitch in Breed
8 Best Bitch in Breed
2 Reserve of Breed
1 Best of Breed
2 Best Puppy of Group
1 Best Puppy in Show
