Breeder:Karen DeAngelo

 I have been raising Shih-Tzu since 1986 when a neighbor Shih-Tzu breeder mentored me. Glory Ridge has a multitude of Nationwide references, our vets, and groomer (who comes to the kennel).
I strive to embody excellence, integrity, and honesty in everything we do and provide. I answer to the Lord Jesus Christ for my actions. I am not perfect, just forgiven, but our motive in our home and businesses is to please Christ. I pray my customers in and follow my heart who gets my puppies. I reserve the right to cancel a sale at any time I am not comfortable with placement. You interview ME, while I interview YOU.  I enjoy speaking to my customers and guiding you in an important decision if my Shih-Tzu will suit your needs of love and companionship.  Our Shih-Tzu "mold" to their master, so I am sure one will "fit" your lifestyle if not left alone all day. They do well in pairs if they are home alone a lot. They love other animals, too. They are non-allergic and love children to Seniors as long as love is involved.
 We hope to be privileged to provide you with your next companion and trust me as your Shih-Tzu breeder.
                                   Pawsitively, Karen 
PS In 2019 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer and endured 15 months of chemo, a double mastectomy and 25 radiation treatments.  That took 2 years to complete. I am currently battling fatigue. I can't drive long distances. I am still on estrogen protien blockers for 7 years and the pain they cause can really slow down my days. I am BETTER than I was before the cancer, as I had latent tick disease and was in horrible pain for over 15 years, but PRAISE GOD the chemo killed the borreliosis the first treatment! I tell you this to please have patience with me as I am 67 and no spring chicken anymore. Chemo brain effects me and exhaustion, but I do my VERY BEST for YOU and my grand-daughter Glori is my right hand and will continue the Glory Ridge flawless reputation in years to come because she LOVES the dogs and LOVES the LORD.  GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!  


Our Kennel Inside and Out

Glory Ridge Shih-Tzu Kennel

All our dogs are  registered and our kennel 
is built to USDA Specifications,
however we are a Missouri Registered Hobby-Show Kennel and not a USDA Kennel


Many people are curious about our kennel. This is the inside. The dogs have the freedom to go out a doggie door to concrete runs. The pens up top are for moms and babies. We keep it around 70* year round . The air is purified and fresh air is brought in and air is exhausted out. Every thing is waterproof so it can be hosed out into floor drains.We have an automatic Water system so that drinking water is always fresh There is a sink with hot and cold water to wash dogs and hands.

We do not allow anyone in this area for disease control.

Our stainless steel whelping pen area. Each pen is 5ft long.
