Hi, Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu

Thank you, Gemma for sharing your beautiful Shih Tzu boy, Rolo with us. He has some beautiful colors in his coat.

Looking at the pictures you uploaded, I would have to say that he is a brindle Shih Tzu.

As many (if not most) Shih Tzu dogs, it appears as if his colors have changed as he has grown.

As a puppy, he had some beautiful golds and maybe reds in the brindling. After his haircut, it appears that there are silvers/grays coming through.

Photographs never do a Shih Tzu justice, in my opinion, because the light never truly reflects all the amazing colors in their coat.

So, if people ask you what colour your dog is, you can tell them that he is Brindle.
