• No Change in Black and White

    Not all color schemes of young Shih Tzus change, however. Shih Tzus born with white and black fur are the sole exception in this situation. If a Shih Tzu enters the world with this specific coloration, he's going to stay that way for good.


  • There is no doubt about it: Shih Tzu hair color changes over time. The most dramatic change occurs from the time the puppy is born until he reaches maturity. Some of these changes do not really change at all, but rather a dogs true colors coming through.

    Additionally, what is the rarest color of Shih Tzu? A solid black Shih Tzu is very rare; there is usually a white marking somewhere (and often on the chest); however, full black coloring does exist.

    Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the best color for Shih Tzu?

    A. Solid Shih Tzu coat colors!

    • White – Completely milk white with shiny hair coat. This breed coat without any other color is very rare.
    • Black – Pitch dark black body with the completely black nose.
    • Gold – A tan, yellow color coat usually found on Labradors or golden retriever.
    • Red – An absolute red head!

    Can a black Shih Tzu turn brown?

    Many times, it will lighten. A Shih Tzu that is light brown or even a color close to black may mature into having a darker brown coat.
