Lea, Sorry to take so long, but this is our Maple!!!
She was Pippa to you. We are loving her.
Lea, I wanted to send you a quick note and tell you we LOVE our little ‘Luna’. That is what we named her. Lauren loves her! Luna and our other Shih Tzu Bella, get along great!.
We have found Luna to be a very quick learner to knowing where our house is! We lived in a townhome community where all the homes and yards are alike.
She was able to lead us home in no time. We have now moved to the town of Ellenville, NY and once again, she knew her way home in less than a week.
Luna is a whopping 3lbs 10 oz this week. J I clipped her a few weeks ago and she was a star standing there and accepting the clippers. She has a wonderful and trusting attitude.
A previous neighbor of ours in the townhome community in Newburgh was purchasing a male puppy from you. They were to pick him up the week we moved out (around July 19th) , so we never saw him.
The daughter was so excited and loved sitting with Luna on the sidewalk when we too her out for a walk. The woman met you and the puppies a few weeks before that and she had nothing but good things to say about you.
I hope everything is going well for you…. And all your puppies.
Thank you again.
Keith, Grace and Lauren Fennimore J
I will try to get Lauren to send some pictures!
Charlie is doing great just wanna say hi hope all is well
Hi Lea, I hope you're going great!
Just wanted to share some pictures of Missy.
She's very sweet and loved very much.
Everyone agrees she's adorable!
Hope you are having a great summer!
He is wonderful! Absolutely one of the best dogs we have ever had.
We named him Dexter and I will send you more pictures of him when I get home.
We took the dogs to the adirondacks with us and this is a picture of him enjoying the breeze while we were eating lunch at an outdoor restaurant:)

Thank you Lea. Missy has been doing great, we love her a lot and she's a sweet and playful girl.
She's not been crying at night at all anymore and has been eating well and starting to spend time outdoors.
She has her favorite toys and likes teasing our nephew who comes to visit her.
We're so lucky to have her.
Thank you for all your help and letting us make her a part of our family.
Hi Lea, Bella (AKA Maddy) has adapted very well in her new home. She has been absolutely wonderful.
She slept all night and not a single whimper at all. She is so sweet and lovable and so adorable when she is playing.
She is doing well eating, drinking and going out to potty. Our chocolate lab and Bella are getting along nicely.
We just LOVE her so much. Thank you again!!
Hi Lea, This is Alan. We spoke about a month ago about me picking up another Shih Tzu puppy from you.
I've attached a picture of the last one we adopted from you. His name is Loukas. He's an absolute joy. Let me know what you have in your litter.
I can come up to pick up a puppy the first week in January.
Lea, I attached a pic of Phineas. We got him from you almost 2 years ago and we couldn't be any happier!
As I'm sure you can tell on my kids faces. He is a wonderful part of the family.

Hi Lea! Just wanted to send you a recent picture of Daisy in her new bed. She is so precious. Looking forward to hearing from you on the new arrivals from Bailey and Stella!
Hi Lea, I just have to say this little girl Miss Kiki is a joy. She is so smart. Last night she went to bed all by herself. We were looking for her cause she was just in the living room with us, then were like where'd she go, so I checked her crate and there she was sound asleep. She is already going outside and doing her business (still training but she did it). She fetches and sits already. We are using training treats to reward her and she gets so excited when she does something great. So I am very impressed on how smart she is for being so little. Thanks again for all the lovin you give them as puppies, I'm sure that helps alot to make them so sweet. I'll keep ya posted.

Lea...Yes if you like her name is Elena Cirillo.
Her little button nose is black, she is absolutely lovable! It was a hard decision as to whether or not to get my Mom a dog especially for her age to start with a puppy. Annie made an amazingly easy transition, she never leaves her side. Thank you for providing us with such a puppy that was so easy to train and so well behaved. It surely was a perfect match for her.
Best Regards Vikki
Lea, I just wanted you to know about Gidget. We had company from NC with 2 small children. She had not been around little ones. Addison, age 5, carried her around like a stuffed animal for the 2 days they were her. Gidget could not have been better with her. She just loved all the attention. Now we are in NJ. Charotte,6, who was afraid of dogs because because the neighbors 2 dogs were out of the invisible fence and actually charged at her and knocked her down and turned around and ran over her again. When she first saw Gidget, she wanted us to put Gidget away because she was afraid. Well, guess who will not let Gidget out of her sight. She carries her everywhere, sits with her on her lap, makes her dance, tries to train her and takes her outside. She just loves her. Gidget has the best temperament of any dog we ever had. I could not be happier with her and what she has turned out to be. Carol
Hi Lea, I just wanted to let you know Bella (Lucy & Reeki Litter) is doing great!! She had her 1st vet visit this morning and she weighs 3lbs & 3/4 oz. He said she was a very happy & healthy puppy!!
Hi Lea; Suzzy is doing awesome! The boys (Russel the sheltie and Mocha the Cavaler) just love her. They are playing with her, kissing and licking her, russel slept with his face near her to keep watch over her. She had a good trip back from your house, we stopped once to let her pee. She ate good yesterday, we softened the puppy food and she ate it that way. She's a bouncy playful little girl and a wonderful addition to our household. Russel is very smitten with her and follows her everywhere. She stands under his belly to hide under his fur and then pops out the other side. Very cute. I attached a couple of pictures. The bed was super, she felt comfortable with the smell of her bed and was warm with her little pink sweather. Thank you! I'll send more pictures as she grows up.
He had a good night. He does not seem freaked out. Loves to play with that squirrel, but also taking lots of naps. He seems to think he can't leave the piano room, which is fine with me. Today I baked cookies and just kept going in and talking to him, and he was content to explore a little. He entertains himself so well. Cuddles a lot with Madeline. You were right about the paper, he is awesome!
Thank you so much, he is such a wonderful puppy.
Dear Lea, An update on the perfect puppy. She had her first full trim today and the groomer complimented you on your breeding quality. She is no longer black and white but gray and white. I knew she would lighten up as she got older. Her top teeth are coming in nicely. She is quite the lap puppy, that is when she is not tormenting Molly. Have a great day.
Hi Lea, Just wanted to give you a quick update on Little Ricky. He’s doing great. Very, very loveable and sweet but has a real spicy side. So much fun watching him play with Leslie’s little Lilly. Coming along well with potty training. Has never had a poop accident in the house. Our cat has taken a real interest in him….they may turn out to be best friends. He had his first puppy grooming the other day. Bath, blow dry, little snip around the face, feet, and privates. Nails clipped and ears cleaned. What a handsome boy. We’re very anxious for Lucy and can’t wait to get her after Christmas. Hopefully we can stop by soon to get a peek at that litter to ensure Little Lucy will be the brown one. They’re 6 weeks now so I can’t imagine how they’ve grown and I’m sure the personalities are developing. We’ll give you a call to set up “a viewing.”
Thanks so much for raising such a sweet boy, Lea. I know Lucy will be equally as wonderful.
See you soon- Wendy
"If your looking for the puppy of your dreams then you have come to the right place! As a little girl I dreamed about owning my own Shih-Tzu and Nor~Lea Shih Tzu of New York helped make that dream come true. The puppies were of the most beautiful, healthy and intelligent that I had ever seen. Yet, that wasn't even the best part. The communication, guidance and loving helping hand at Norlea was one of which I will never forget. These are not just puppies for sale, they are members of their family that they are sharing with only those who promise to hold true to always love and care for them. Upon arriving to choose my puppy I was greeted in to a wonderful home with lots of cheerful licking and barks. The family made me comfortable and was happy to see me stay awhile and pick the puppy that was right for me. I decided on a healthy, energetic, intelligent black and white female Shih-Tzu. She was 100% true to her breed. All puppies are AKC certified and once you see them you will know why. I recommend Norlea to anyone who wants a reliable, trustworthy, loving breeder. If you want someone who breeds because they love the animal and want others to share in the experience, not for profit. The prices are the best around and I would pay double for the friend that I made! Once you see one you will want them all. I drove over four hours to get my puppy and am glad that I did. Don't settle for dogs at pet stores that charge double. Make a smart choice and choose Nor~Lea Shih Tzu of New York as your breeder. You will be glad you did, as will the friend you make for life!"
Hi Lea, Just wanted to give you an update on our beautiful little girl we picked up last Thursday. We have named her Roxy and EVERYONE loves her.!! Our resident 5 yr old cockapoo, Taffy, is still not too thrilled but he is getting used to her. She is so little and spunky!! If Taffy does something she follows him and tries to do it to!! In spite of her size she really gets around. I think that Roxy wants to do everything that Taffy does. She does seem to be very smart. She is doing well. She cried a little the first two nights but we seem to be over that now. She is eating well and I think she is even a little bit bigger.
Thanks and we love our puppy,
Hi Lea, I just wanted to thank you again for my wonderful Shih Tzu puppie (Bonnie Bella). She is absolutely beautiful with perfect markings and very smart too. I know it was because she was raised by you with lots of Love. I wanted to let you that my Vet was very impressed with her too. He knew with out me telling him that I did not get her from a pet store. He commmented that the breeder knew what they were doing because she is a perfect puppie with a great personality. He was really amazed that we got to see her parents too he said most times you do not get to see the parents of your puppie. I just wanted to let you know that both my husband and I are in Love with her she has us both wrapped around her little paw! I will be reccomending you in the future for sure to any one that wants a shih tzu or sheltie puppie. Please give me as a reference if anyone wants to now what quality puppies you raise. My husband and I can not thank you enough for our Bonnie Bella.

Hi Lea, just wanted to let you know that "Crystal" did wonderfully with the other dogs, played quite a bit last night, ate really well, I warmed up the cottage cheese and mixed it with the dry. She didn't cry at all last night, slept with Madison the whole night. She actually went to the bathroom in the dog pen this morning too! When the house wakes up later, I will send some pictures. Thanks for a wonderful puppy! And for the best breeder experience I have ever had, you truly should be proud of yourself! Lyn Biasin
Lea, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know SIERRA is doing wonderful. She is just a joy and loves her new big brother and he loves her. She is getting more love than you ever can imagine. She is the healthiest little girl. You should really be proud of the quality of breed you are putting out.
The next few weeks are a bit crazy but as soon as things calm down on my end I will send photos.
Thanks so much,
Kim, Dave, Cameron, Reagan and Harley and lets not forget Sierra!!!!!
This is Kim Poutre, the peeps that bought the tiny puppy from you (Maggie) that lives here in Macedon. I am letting you know that she is a great puppy! We all love her and she is getting plenty of love and attention! Maggie traveled great on our trip up North (Plattsburgh is 6 hours). She was so good. We put her in a canvas crate (with door open and top open) in car. She basically slept, but once in awhile she curled up on the back seat with someone for a short period and then wanted to go back in the crate. She was too scared when she was out of the car for a rest break and had no interest in going potty, so she held it to and back. When we finally got to our designation, took her an hour to finally go potty. She was just great! Way back coming home, she was very happy to see home and went potty right away.
