Five Little Shih Poo Puppies . . .

Oh, I could just squeeze these adorable Shih Poo puppies.  There are five, really gentle, good-natured pups in this litter that arrived on August 10, 2016.  Three boys (pictured together) and two sweet girls. . . All have been chosen except for the girl on the top left.

As a photographer, who doesn’t ever see these pups until they are ready to be introduced to our dog-loving readers and customers, I can vouch for the amazing nature of these little ones.  I can’t believe the trust they have in human touch from a stranger.  I can tell they are loved well and socialized by the way they allowed me to cuddle them before the photo session.  There was no fear at all, just these round trusting eyes looking up at me.

My sister purchased a happy Shih Poo puppy from Willowbrook ten years ago.  Mikki is loved by all the extended family and has a wonderful personality.  I think he’s so cute too . . . because of his small size, incredibly soft fur and adorable haircut.  His ears flop up and down when he runs making him look so comical.


He definitely brings a lot of joy and entertainment to the family . . . especially to Oma and Opa who are aging . . .  and look forward to his daily arrival in their home while my sister works.

Enjoy reading more stories and photos from our customers who love to share how their dog is doing in our “Happy Updates” page.

Please send us your update if you’d like your furry friend added that page.


Maltipoo & Shorkie Cuteness!

There is so much cuteness in each cuddly puppy here at Willowbrook. Each time I pick one up I think “this one is definitely the sweetest!”

I love their personalities and this Shorkie, born on July 18, 2016, definitely has a lot of it.  I can’t believe we actually got a photograph of him . . . he has so much spunk and happy energy that he just wanted to be anywhere but posing for us. I’m sure his new family is loving him!

He has a pure, Yorkie Mama and a Shih Tzu Dad, and literally paused for only a second . . . which was when we first placed him into the crate.  All photographs after that were of him trying to scale the edge of the crate.  So, so much fun!

Our Maltipoo litter wiggled into the world on August 16, 2016.  There are two, beautiful girls and one, very sweet boy, who have all found a home.  We have a waiting list for this breed, so if you’re interested, please contact us.

Stay tuned for photos of our Shih Poo (Shih Tzu x Poodle) breed in which we still have one girl available in that litter of five, precious, little ones.

Thank you so much for your interest in Willowbrook Kennel!

This Amazing Weather Continues . . .

Wow, it is so beautiful out again . . . I just had to take the studio outdoors, once again, to make the most of the warm weather before the cold snow starts swirling around . . . keeping us inside!

Willowbrook Kennel is very pleased to introduce two boys and one girl in this Malshi (Maltese x Shih Tzu) litter that happily made their safe and healthy arrival on August 1, 2016.


We are also thrilled to let you know that this litter is all spoken for.  This breed does have a waiting list, and we are in the process of making phone calls to place them.  We know that each pup will have a loving home to go home to since these waiting families have been anticipating their arrival.

It’s a joy for us receive an email on how much our puppies are loved and cared for and we would love to receive updates on these little ones once they leave us.

Have a most wonderful day!



A Beautiful, Crisp, End-Of-The-Summer Morning!

A happy, “Good Morning to you” from Willowbrook Kennel!

What a gorgeous, bright and crisp start to this day!  This is a wonderful time of year to bring home a sweet natured, little puppy!

We are very pleased to let you know we have a beautiful, black, Shorkie Poo available.  He was born on July 12, 2016 to our beautiful Shih Poo mama and our pure, Yorkie dad.  He definitely has a sweet disposition.

Our adorable litter of Shih Tzu puppies also arrived in July just a few days later . . . July 18th to be exact.  My heart just melts when I look at their sweet faces!

The two girls pictured together have just been chosen this weekend . . . leaving one, amazingly sweet boy looking for his forever home!  He is so soft and fluffy, and has been socialized and loved well to give him an excellent start on life.  He is so trusting and will make an excellent lap warmer this winter.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Enjoy this beautiful day!



Three Little Morkies . . .

What fun we had photographing these Morkie puppies this morning.  Two sweet, curious girls (who kept trying to roll out of the basket) and their gentle brother were born on June 30, 2016 to a pure, Maltese mama and their pure, Yorkie dad.

All of us at Willowbrook are so pleased to let you know that each little one has been chosen by his or her forever family.  They are busy eating, playing and growing big enough to leave our family.

For those interested in purchasing a quality, small breed family dog from us, please contact us directly to find out how you can be put on our waiting list.

We certainly love what we do and look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for stopping by and reading our blog.


An Update On Sweet, Little Molly & Pink-Nosed Gracie

Oh, what a cutie! I just had to share this photo with you!

Molly is a little Morkie that left Willowbrook over a year ago. Her family sent us this photo and happy update:

alt="reviews for Willowbrook Kennel in Ontario"

“Hi!  I just wanted to send you an update on Molly. She was a Morkie from your kennel we picked up in May 2015 . . .  She is a tricolor and ‎kept her three colours although she lost the black on her head. She is about 6 pounds, so smaller than we expected, but we love her!

Thanks again for such a great puppy.”

Thank you so much Carolyn M. and family for this update.  She is so tiny and very adorable!  Your update is much appreciated and also helps others interested in this breed see what Morkies look like fully grown!

Up next, we have a new, updated photo sent in to us from Elizabeth E. . . Gracie is now three and makes her family so happy.  She writes:

“I have a new updated picture of Gracie.  She will be 3 November 13, 2016 and her brothers are Willie, Jace and Enzo.  She is still the love of our lives, Willowbrook makes such happy puppies!


Gracie still has her pink nose and people comment on it all the time.”

Thank you!  It is so wonderful to receive another update on Gracie!  What a cute, button nose!  (Check out her previous photo in our “Happy Updates.”)

We love to share these photos and emails with you, so if you purchased your puppy at Willowbrook , we would love to show off your well-loved pet to those on our waiting list and it keeps us informed on how they are doing.  Please email us your updates.  Have a most wonderful day!

Loving The Outdoors . . .

Yes, these soft, Malshi, fluff balls seemed to love their morning photo session in the great big, wide-open world.  With the gusty spring wind blowing their fur and ears around, it took a bit of time to get them photographed.  What fun we had!

alt="maltese x shih tzu puppies for sale in ontario"

So here they are!  This happy litter of Maltese x Shih Tzu puppies were born on March 30th, 2016.  There is one handsome boy squeezed in between his two sisters and we are so happy to inform you that each one has already been chosen by his or her new family.

The Maltese cross puppies here at Willowbrook Kennel are a favorite amongst families in Southern Ontario and we do have a waiting list for this breed.  This is why they are sold before they are old enough to photograph . . . but we do want to share their cuteness with you and with their new owners.

We still have a Shorkie girl waiting for her forever home.  Will your family be the one to claim her?  Feel free to call with any questions you may have. (Update: She left us for her new home in Toronto!)
