This is my sweet Boomer. I can't tell if he is a prapso shih tzu or not. He was born to a full blooded mom and registered dad. His siblings were both normal shih tzu. He is a mess, very playful and hardheaded. The other pic is his best friend Sassy, a normal shih tzu.
Hi, Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu,
It definitely looks like from the photograph that Boomer may be a Prapso or a partial prapso. He appears to have a beautiful brindle colored coat, a white tuxedo marking on his chest and a black mask. These are all characteristics of the Shih Tzu breed.
The only thing missing is the long coat and whiskers/beard that non-prapso dogs have.
"Hardheaded" pretty much describes most Shih Tzu dogs. They definitely have that attitude, "Whats in it for me?" I think you can definitely say your little Boomer is Prapso.
