Our Story


  Sunny South puppies is owned and operated by Alvin and Irene Schlabach along with their daughter Tabitha.

  We are located in the sunny country side of Dade City, Florida.

  Our goal is to raise puppies in a healthy, sanitary environment and prepare them to be the best pets possible.  We spend a lot of time with our puppies, making sure their needs are met and accustoming them to being around people and socializing well with other humans.

  We are very concerned with the health of our dogs! We are always in attendance  (if it means staying up all night) when one of our dam's is whelping! We never go to bed without checking on each and every one of our canine family.  No dog or puppy is considered undesirable and not worthy of humane care and the gentle touch of human hands.

  Our  pets give freely to us their love and loyalty without reserve, And they deserve to be treated with the same, and it is our pleasure to do so!

  We regularly engage the services of a licensed veterinarian. Our dogs and puppies are vaccinated by a veterinarian and receive health certificates before leaving for their new homes.

  We offer a one year health guarantee against all genetic or hereditary diseases.  Please click on our  health guarantee link for further information.

  We appreciate you, (our customers) and believe that you deserve to be treated with honesty and respect and our pledge to you is to be up front with you always, and to do everything we can to make your adoption of one of our puppies a pleasant experience.

 Our faith and our family are important to us and for that reason we do not sell or show our puppies on Sundays.

  Please contact us with any questions or concerns you might have.

We can’t thank you enough for our precious little Biewer Yorkie puppy! Janie is doing great! We just had her check up at 14 weeks she is 2.4 lbs and very healthy. We just love her and she has quickly become the boss of the family. Thank you for welcoming us into your home and letting us visit her several times before she could come home with us. You always answered my questions and shared your knowledge of raising healthy puppies. I would recommend you to anyone looking for a healthy happy puppy! God Bless You, Karen and Nick

While in search of a Biewer Terrier, I came across Sunny South Puppies, Mrs. Irene and her family. What a blessing. I could not have been more pleased. Brought Gabby home about a month ago, all 2.4 pounds of her. We have been in puppy bliss and chaos since. Lol. On our first visit to our vet (just 4 days after pick up), he marveled at what a healthy puppy Gabby is. Again, thank you, Mrs. Irene and family for the wonderful addition to my family.

This little lady has brought so much joy into our lives. We named her Grace, Gracy for short, because God planned her for us. Plus, she's full of grace with her walk and personality.

Thank you so much Irene!!!

Jack and his sister LuLu just turned 2 last month and are the sweetest things to ever happen to us. We met Mrs. Irene and her daughter Tabitha when the puppies were just days old. We knew immediately that they were reputable dog breeders because they kept the puppies were in their home and not a kennel.  Mrs. Irene had to feed little LuLu with a syringe hourly because she was so tiny  She probably would not have survived. If you are looking for a new member of your family, I highly recommend Sunny South Puppies.

Rosie (was Vickie) is cuddling with her sister Daisy. They’re inseparable.

I’ve had such a wonderful experience with Irene and her family. I was allowed to visit my baby until she was old enough to come home to her new family. I highly recommend Sunny South Puppies.

I adopted our little Kevin in November 2022 and already he has my husband and I wrapped around his little paw! Working with Irene and Tabitha while I was waiting for him to get old enough to come home was such a wonderful experience. They allowed me visits in their home each week (beautiful sparkling clean home) so we could bond and I could watch his progress. Kevin from heaven is now a gorgeous healthy 14 week old Malshi. Everyone that has met him loves him and his loving personality. Thank you Irene and Tabitha! You have helped bring such happiness to our lives!

We’ve only had our sweet Dixie one week. She has been a joy. So cute, tiny, and fully of energy. Dixie has fit perfectly into our family. Irene and her family do a great job socializing their puppies.  We had always had Yorkies and weren’t familiar with Biewer Yorkies. We’re sold on this wonderful and unique breed. We’d like to thank Irene, Tabitha, and Alvin for the loving environment they provide for their puppies. We would recommend Sunny South Puppies to anyone looking for a beautiful, healthy puppy. 

Thank you,

Sherry, Barry, & Dixie

Thank you ! 




My husband and I had been debating on getting another fur baby as we had lost our 14 year old Yorkie Poo, Fozzy December 27, 2020.  He was the best. I was looking online one evening for Yorkies and found Sunny South Puppies.  I contacted Irene and we made arrangements to go see one of her puppies.  We fell in love instantly with our Toby.  We took him home that day and enjoy him so much.  He is adorable and smart. And Irene and her family are great!

If you are looking for your “puppy love”, give them a call!

Thank you so much Mrs. Irene! Bennee’ is our little bundle of joy that we just adore. He goes everywhere we go, and loves to sleep on our pillows. We spoiled him so much he thinks he should have treats everyday. We give in because he’s so precious and lovable, how could we say No? I have recommended my coworkers and family to Sunny South Puppies.

Thank You




Diane Beland


I love my Sonny! Irene was wonderful! she is so kind and gentle she really loves these puppies. What impressed me was she held Sonny (Felix) for 9 weeks because she wanted to make sure he was ok after his shot and deworming..I have met people who the breeder gave them the puppy at 6 weeks .What I also liked is you get to go to her beautiful house and see the available puppies hands on, she’ll send you pictures or videos of your puppy until you are ready to take them home

 I would give Sunny South Puppies a 5* *



Pat Weber

Many thanks to Ms. Irene for raising such beautiful puppies. I’ve only had my Biewer Lucca (Maggie) for a week and she is beautiful. I was kept informed by phone, text and videos until it was time to pick her up. Ms. Irene and Tabitha keep a spotless house and you can tell how much they care for their dogs.


Nancy & Skip Calhoun

This is Luci at three months old. She had her first hair cut today. She is our pride and joy and a big hit in our neighborhood.

Thank you Irene for bringing her into our lives.

Kona was born November 1, 2022.  He is almost 3 months old.  This gorgeous Biewer boy has brought so much joy to my family.  He has a friendly temperament.  And he is super active and so lovable.  Irene & Tabitha were a delight to work with.  Sending pics and videos and great communication!

  Thank You Sunny South for Kona.  He is so precious!

Months of endless research on finding the perfect yorkie breeder paid off when I found Irene. She is outstanding in customer service and so authentic it will leave a mark on you in the most positive way.


As for Coco - I am overwhelmed at the amount of compliments I get on a daily basis. His gorgeous appearance and even temperament is proof that Irene breeds for quality.


I am in love with my new puppy and grateful for the memories in the making. Irene gets an 11/10 in my book and I recommend her and to anyone and everyone.


Philip & Julie Huff

Hi Ms. Irene,


I hope and pray all is well. I just wanted to let you know that Harlem is doing great and we can’t imagine our lives without him. We recently celebrated his 1st birthday. He’s such a handsome, mischievous and loving fella. We love him dearly. I will only get my pups from you!

Thank you so much Irene for our precious Maltipoo puppy "Quin"  

He is so Adorable and The Love of our Lives!! 

I had been searching for a puppy for our family and the timing was just right when we finally found him on, even his birthdate was a confirmation that he was meant to be for us.   

He is such a Happy, Healthy, Adorable little puppy boy, and at times I wish we had adopted one of his sisters along with him since he's such a wonderful puppy.  

Thank you again for the new joy to our family.


Many Blessings, 



Mike & Denise Foster


We met Mrs. Irene last year when we got our precious "Millie Rose".

Now we have added two siblings of Millie's to our family.

Gabby and Tucker, both of which were born on March 14 2021.

Our hearts are full and so is our house!!!! We love our fur babies, they are the highlight of our days!!!! 

Mrs. Irene kept in touch with us during the process while our fur babies were still in her care. She sent us photos and videos and kept us posted on their progress! She welcomed us in to her beautiful home to visit with our fur babies, when the day came for us to pick them up, she sent them on their way with a little care package and a lot of love!

Thank you Mrs. Irene,

Mike and Denise Foster

Millie, Tucker & Gabby!!
