My Prapso Puppy Digawas' story


For the longest time, I've wondered what exactly was wrong with my dog. Both of his parents are pure breed Shih Tzus but there is one thing that made him so unique.

A few years ago I bred two non-related Shih Tzus (Charlie and Molly)and all of their puppies were normal. I kept one of the puppies (Tilla). We had Molly, Tilla, and Charlie and continued to bread Molly and Charlie two more times.

When Tilla came into heat, I tried to keep her away from Charlie, but one night I came home and found that she was going into labor. The only dog that she could have possibly mated with was her father.

All the puppies were healthy and looked normal except for one which was solid white. As the puppies grew older, they looked slightly different from the normal Shih Tzu puppies.

Three of the puppies looked like standard Shih Tzus but the other two looked sort of like Pekingese puppies. There was one though that was very different. He is the one that I kept, and his name is Digawa. He was the solid white puppy, and as he has grown older, he's become a very beautiful dog.

He is three now and looks like a white Pekingese but with a longer nose. I've never seen any dog that looks exactly like Digawa.

He really is special. He has no medical problems and seems to be very smart and is a great listener.

His sister has brown and white hair but has the similar face shape and the short hair. I have never had Digawa groomed because his hair only grows to a certain length. I

I'm considering breeding Charlie and Tilla again to hopefully get similar results. I never knew what to call him until now. I had no clue they had a name. I'm so glad he's not the only one!! I hope you enjoyed Digawas story. I wasn't able to uploaded pictures, but I'd be happy to share with anyone. He's unique and I haven't ever seen anything like him.
