What color is your shih tzu? Mine is solid black. Well, he was when he was a puppy. He has added some stray white hairs here and there, but black without looking closely. He is the only solid color shih tzu I have ever seen. Has anyone out there seen a solid colored shih tzu?

Mine is the only solid colored one I've ever seen, but I had someone tell me that they used to have a solid white one. :) Thanks for the comment.

I have two Shih Tzus. Patches is white with black ears and black patches on his back. He has these gorgeous black eyes that give him the ability to give the best sad eyes look I have ever seen. He always looks sad, but he is the sweetest old fart. Ringo is his polar opposite. I have never seen another Shih Tzu like him. He is white with brown ears and spots. His eyes are a very bright amber and even his nose is brown, which I have never seen. He always has this happy go lucky look about him and he can be a hyper little thing!

Mine doesn't have the sad eyes like you describe, but I have seen them on other shih tzus and you're right, it is adorable. Mine was kind of hyper when he was a puppy and would run many many circles around the coffee table in the living room. He is now down to running 3 to 4 circles, then he's ready to lay down. lol

My Shih Tzu "Honey" was dark brown and black and looked like an ewok out of the Star Wars movie when we got her. Now that she is full grown she is light and dark greyish with black on her ears and face. She looks nothing like she did as a puppy. She is a very sweet and loving dog.

Thanks for your sweet answer. It's so funny that you said that your "Honey" looked like an ewok. Mine did too when he was a puppy!! He is now the cutest doggie. Especially when his hair is cut a certain way. Mine is only loving when he's in the mood. I just love him as much as I can when he will let me. :)

Hello cami_love. My shih tzu is white and brown and a little black in the ears. No, I haven't seen a solid colored shih tzu.

I have one that is white and black. But she was in bad shape fur wise when I got her and I had to shave her down. I can't wait to see what she will look like when it grows back in.

Mine is black around his ear and nose area.Whereas for the other area, mixed white and light brown fur. Very adorable and love to be hugged especially by my naughty daughter, Elsa.
