About Eileen Nicholas and Ultra Shih Tzu


Welcome to Ultra Shih Tzu, my name is Eileen Nicholas. I have been showing and breeding Shih Tzu for over thirty years. Ultra Shih Tzu has always been dedicated to producing exceptional beautiful Shih Tzu puppies bred to the standard set by the American Shih Tzu Club (ASTC) and the American Kennel Club (AKC). I am also dedicated to producing happy, healthy Shih Tzu that will be wonderful loving companions for their family.

All of our Shih Tzu are members of our family. They are raised in our home with love, care and always their best interests at heart. From the moment our puppies are born, they know human touch and are handled with total and unconditional love. Ultra Shih Tzu is not a commercial kennel or puppy broker.

I only breed AKC champion Shih Tzu. Ultra Shih Tzu does not breed for the so-called “Imperial Shih Tzu”.  Ultra Shih Tzu are known for having beautiful expressive faces with big, soulful eyes.

Ultra Shih Tzu has been the home to Best In Show Shih Tzu, Best In National Specialty Show Shih Tzu, Best In Specialty Show Shih Tzu, Award of Merit Shih Tzu Winners at the Westminster Dog Show, Specialty Point Winners, National Sweepstakes Winners, Multiple Group Winners and Group Placers, #1 ASTC Top Producing Sires, #1 ASTC Top Producing Dams, ROM Producing Sires and Dams. Ultra Shih Tzu are winners in both the United States and the world.  I am extremely proud of all my dogs and their accomplishments.  We have been very successful with having bred over 100 AKC champions.  I totally enjoy showing dogs.

I have been a member of the American Shih Tzu Club since 1989. I was also given the high honor of “Breed of Merit” with the American Kennel Club.
