Holly started out at 6 weeks with mostly black, gray, and white. Now she is almost all white but she has black hairs scattered throughout her coat. Her skin is spotted.

Hi Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu

Your dog Holly has definitely gone through some major color changes since puppyhood. To be honest, yours is the first Shih Tzu that appears to have changed to white. Most have white at birth and continue to have white. Other colors seem to lighten to where they look much lighter such as a cream or buff color, but your Holly definitely looks white, at least in the picture.

Thank you so much for sharing. It always amazes me with the amount and variety of pigment that these dogs possess.

I may be going out on a limb, but I honest think that there are not that many dog breeds that show such diversity over the course of their lifetime as it relates to hair color.
