Could I be Getting a Prapso?

At the age of four weeks old, I put down a deposit on a Shih Tzu with a Breeder I discovered on a Facebook group. I loved her coloring and playful personality. I see her every day on Facebook Live and her Breeder, Dawn, posts pictures all the time.

Lately, she has been developing a different look than her brother and sisters. I’m certain she is a Prapso!

She was the first to open her eyes and the first to walk. But the most telling aspect is her face! This was Lucy at 7 weeks. I will be getting her at 10 weeks. Do you think she is a Prapso?

Hi, Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu

Your puppy does indeed look like a Prapso or a partial Prapso because she does seem to have some hair growing on her legs and body.

One of the most interesting things about Prapsos is their precociousness. People tell me that their Prapso dogs are very smart and I have seen evidence of that here with puppies.

They are usually the first to do something (go up the steps for the first time or climb down the steps, venture outside, locate an interesting toy, you name it they seem to have the ability to "think on their feet (paws)"

As you said, your puppy was the first to walk and open her eyes; I've noticed that with the Prapso puppies that were born here at Miracle Shih Tzu.

Whether she is a Prapso or not, she is definitely a cutie and has a very endearing expression.
