Bred in Australia by Michelle Thomas, "Duxford" comes from lines that have epitomized the traditional Shih Tzu type for years. Going back to when the breed was first introduced to New Zealand, the stature and ease of movement displayed by Duxford remind us of why this breed was adored by priests and kings in their home country.

Duxford moves like a dream. He has reach and drive while maintaning a sense of grace and dignity, and the Shih Tzu arrogance that is impossible to not be charmed by. His expression of love and devotion are a reflection of his beautiful temperament, and his colours reflect symmetrical markings that are worth their weight in gold.


Duxford has retired from the ring and is enjoying life in his new home, where he has his own cat (and his own toddler) to keep him out of trouble.  He remains a much loved part of the Tenzin family, and we look forward to including his incredible lines in a litter when the time comes.
