Thank Your for Info about Prapso

This is Boomer at 3 weeks old.

I recently bought a Shih Tzu puppy, and he is 11 weeks old now. His face is different and he does not have any long hair at all on his face, and just baby fuzz all over.

His siblings had the long silky coats and I have questioned the breeder, and thank GOD finally found your site.

He looks very much like the above picture. If I had not seen the siblings, I would have said he is not a purebred Shih Tzu.

I could not figure out what was going on and I love him, and would never ever consider giving him up, but I wanted to know why he was different.

His mother is not registered but full blooded, and his dad is registered. Apparently this mating has been used before and the breeder has no idea about this condition, I guess. His explanation was this particular puppy was the runt of the litter and will eventually get his hair. Thank you again for this info!

Hi, Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu

Thank you Mel, for telling us about your Prapso puppy.

This is something that pops up from time to time without any warnings. I recently had a litter born that included a couple of Prapso Puppies. This was not planned at all, and in fact, was the second mating of this pair. Their first litter was completely normal in every way.

I continue to dig into this topic and look for answers, but in the meantime, since no one knows for sure what the mode of transmission is, I would strong discourage anyone who is thinking about breeding a Prapso, to not do so until further research is done.
