The Callan's Family

​Jacksonville, FL

Oliver became part of our family 3 ½ years ago. From the first visit with Alex and Cesar, it was apparent how much they loved their dogs and their dogs loved them. My children fell in love with Oliver and knew right away that he would be the perfect addition to our family. He was. It is hard to remember a time when we weren’t greeted each morning with his wagging tail and kisses. He has always been the happiest and most affectionate dog, ever playful and gentle with the children. Oliver has been back to visit Alex and Cesar many times, and we appreciate how supportive they have always been of Oliver and our family. We feel very fortunate to have been able to get to know them and welcome one of their dogs into our family.

We are thrilled with our little Holly, purchased from Alex and Cesar in February 2022.  She is sweet, playful, funny, and very pretty!  She loves to chase our kitties, fetch and chew on her toys, and go for walks. She is very curious and has to check everything out!  Alex and Cesar welcomed us into their beautiful home to visit Holly and her brother before we made a decision.  They were the most gracious hosts and made us feel very comfortable.  We couldn't be happier with the experience we had and would highly recommend Alex as an exemplary Shih Tzu breeder.  Cesar is great about keeping in touch and has answered my many questions quickly and gladly.  I hope we will continue to keep in touch with Alex and Cesar during the life of our delightful Holly.  Thank you!!

Three years ago we were so blessed to have been given the opportunity to get a puppy from Alex and Javier. Her name is Gracie and such a joy. Part of the reason that she has such an amazing personality is that she was raised for the 1st 3 months with such love and cuddles. They never have many puppies so all puppies are so loved by them. She is a people dog and loves children so much. We have 6 grandchildren that carry her around, make her forts and dress her up! I always tell my friends that we didn’t pay enough for her!.


As a breeder always is great to keep connected with those families who have one of our beloved puppies. On this page, you will find some pictures and testimonials from families who enjoy being part of our extended family.
