Update On Louie

Louie is a Shichon from our last litter of Shichons in 2012. He went home as an older pup and is well loved! Here is a quick update…

Hi Kristy,

I purchased Louie from you just about 1 year ago. He was one of your Shichons. I’m sad that you don’t breed them anymore because they are such great dogs! Just wanted to let you know that Louie is doing GREAT!! He is well socialized now and is a bundle of joy to me. He is so smart too.

Everywhere I go with him, people think he is so adorable. I’m so glad I did not give up on him when I first got him.
He loves visiting my dad at Priest Lake and riding in the boat and having freedom to run on the 20 acre property.


This n That

Things are almost quiet here at Silver Paw Cavachons. We are almost to our downsizing goal and have about 6 more adult dogs to place.

Our puppy count keeps dropping as each puppy goes to their forever home!

We have just 3 female Shochons still available, our very last Shichons here at Silver Paw Cavachons. Their price has been significantly reduced so let me know if you might be interested. They are Sadie’s girls, all black and white, and just as sweet as can be!

We have a little handful of Cavachon puppies that are all ready now. The black & white puppies from Lilly’s litter are still available, a male and a female, the blenheim male from Rosie’s litter, and a sable/white male from the princess litter. All the other puppies have deposits and will he going home in the coming weeks.

Then there is the new litter of Cavachons born just over a week ago. We have 5 absolutely gorgeous puppies, all in our most rare and hard to find colors. Stay tuned for updated pictures of this exquisite litter!

I am happy it will be a more laid back summer this year because we are anticipating our move closer to Spokane in August.

Here are some recent snaps of the fun we always have here at SPK!

Shichons Going Home

Our last two male Shichon puppies have found their forever homes and will be heading there this weekend. We still have 3 females that I will picture soon.

These are our last Shichon puppies. We are rehoming their father this weekend as we plan to focus exclusively on Cavachon puppies. It seems bitter sweet to me. I do love the Shichon puppies as well, but we are better known for the Cavachon puppies, and receive many more inquiries each week for Cavachons.

I am looking forward to the simplicity of dealing with just one available breed, and being able to focus our efforts on producing happy and healthy Cavachons. For everyone with a Shichon, you are still part of the SPK family and we want to hear about your puppies and how they are doing.

Here are the boys from Chelsea’s litter. They are so handsome!!






I hate to admit that I have 8 month old “puppies” that still need a forever home. I have not said a word about them since they were 4 months old because “Buddy” had a Cherry Eye, and needed surgery to fix it, and I just didn’t have time to deal with it, so I just let them be dogs, and they spent the winter in our straw play yard.

Don’t worry, they stayed plenty warm and played like crazy every single day!

I finally took Buddy to the vet this week and had him neutered and had his eye fixed. He looks quite the sight with his “Cone of Shame”. He kept rubbing his eye so we had to protect him from himself and put on the cone.


He WILL be darling and cute like his brother as soon as his hair grows out around his eye. His tail still works and he has no idea he has any “special needs”, and plays so hard, we have to separate him so his stitches can all safely heal.


Brother just went to the groomer today and will visit the vet next week to get his little jewels chopped off as well.

Despite the fact that they haven’t had a lot of different experiences in life, both pups are very happy, tail wagging, and easy going. They need some basic training and individual attention, and they need to be potty trained, but I don’t think it will take much to turn them into great little dogs.

Because they are so old, we are placing them in their new homes for just $300 each which covers their vet expenses and vaccinations, including their Rabies shot.

We are actively crate training them and they are ready for their new homes now. Buddy would need to stay local as he has some follow up care scheduled with our vet.

If you or someone you know might be interested in a wonderful Shichon (ShihTzu/Bichon Frise mix) teenager, fully vaccinated, and already altered, please let me know. For some, getting an older puppy makes life a lot easier because they can “hold it” a lot longer than a brand new 8 week old puppy!

Chelsea & Sebastian’s Shichon Puppies

These puppies are 4 weeks old and will be ready for their new homes in 4 more weeks.  They are all very small, and will probably mature to 10-14 lbs as adults.  We have a couple deposits for this litter and will know soon which puppies are still available for adoption.

Jersey – Adult Shichon

Jersey’s owner just shared these photos. She is a Shichon from Mollychon and R.B.

The first photo is at 10 months old after a haircut, and the rest are of her as a fully mature adult.






She is the baby looking up at the camera! So fun to see how they turn out!

Calypso a White Shichon

I am really excited to share these photos of Calypso with everyone. He was from our very first litter of white Shichons, with Pearlie Girl and Hurley as his parents. He is about 5 years old now and his family has kept in touch and sent me pictures as he has grown. I think he is just a stunning dog, and wanted everyone to see him because we have 3 puppies that will look like him someday! The current litter has the same mother and a Bichon father as well.

Here he is….Calypso!!


















Pearlie Girl Had Her Puppies

We are happy to announce the arrival of Pearlie Girl & Mosely’s


Born December 7, 2011.

More information and photos will be posted when the puppies are 2 weeks old. We have both girls and boys in the litter. All puppies are solid white or cream colored.

They will be ready for their new homes around February 1st.
