About Us


The Shih Tzu Fanciers of Southern CA (STFSC) is a non-profit American Kennel Club (AKC) affiliate, dedicated to encourage and promote the quality of purebred Shih Tzu and to do our best to bring their natural qualities to perfection. STFSC accepts the breed standard approved by AKC as the standard of excellence that all Shih Tzu 

shall be judged. We do all we can to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsman-

like competition at dog shows. We conduct sanctioned and licensed specialty shows and agility trials under the 

rules of the AKC. We abide by the American Shih Tzu club Code Of Ethics. We manage a non-profit rescue 

program.  Rescued Shih Tzu are bathed, groomed, given a complete health and parasite check, 

shots, necessary surgery, and spay/ neuter, without exception. We participate in various fund-raising activities 

to support the rescue program and other club activities. We offer the shih fanciers cookbook, filled with international recipes for our pets and other family members, and we hold raffles at our specialty shows. If you

wish to donate items to the raffles, auction, or a gift directly to the rescue fund, email us and we will forward

you information. All donations are tax deductible. 

STFSC is a Shih Tzu Fanciers Club. We accept membership applications from all those who are dedicated to

protect and encourage the quality of purebred Shih Tzu, whether they show Shih Tzu or own them as pets. Currently we offer only regular memberships .
