Jasmine's Dramatic Color Change
(Kansas City, MO, USA)
Jasmine at 12 weeks
I got my Shih Tzu Jasmine when she was 12 weeks old. As you can see, she was brown (or gold) and white. She was totally different before she was even a year old. I love her colors, but she sure didn't turn out how I imagined she would.
Thank you so much for posting Lynn, to show off Jasmine's color changes.
It is so important for puppy buyers to understand that puppies may not be the color you expect when they become adults.
Even as a breeder I find it amazing how these color changes happen. I had one breeder-friend tell me that she is very upset with AKC making us decide on a color when the puppy is 10 - 12 weeks old, knowing full well that the puppy may not end up that way.
I also know from experience that I was shocked when I purchased a Shih Tzu puppy years ago. On record, he was listed as black and white. When he was a young puppy he was gold and white. As an old man, he was nearly all white. I was convinced at the time that the breeder sold me the wrong puppy.
Since then, I have learned to make sure that puppy buyers do not get fixated on the puppy's color, because in all likelihood it is going to change.
