Are you sure that's a purebred shih tzu? My neighbor when I was a kid used to breed their shih tzu and we used to play with the pups and none of them ever looked like that. They were all shaggy with flattish faces.

This dog doesn't look a shih tzu to me, it looks more like some sort of terrier. My shih tzu x pekeingnese mix started to get her beard and mustache at around 3 months. Her mustache grew faster than her beard though. Her beard started to really fill out at around 5 months.

Agreed, doesn't look like a shih tzu to me. Might have terrier in it, my terrier got his beard at around 5-6 months old.

But I hope you didn't get the dog JUST to have a dog with a beard?

Where did you get the dog? Did you meet both of its parents or only the mom?

Yeah I would say not a Shih Tzu. My girl is only half and this is what she looked like at that same age.

Yeah, he is an adorable puppy! I'm sorry he won't grow a beard, but he is still super cute and should be a lot of fun. Treat him well!

well... i got him from a breeder my niece let me chose and i pick him since hes looks unque than his siblings... so i raise him since 1 month old now hes 2 months i saw his sibling and they got beared =/ i asked my niece if thier cobbie (his older batch) is like that ...and she said yeah until 3-4 months itll grow beard...

im ok with other breed such as maltese and lhasa apso :/ still cant understand why hes beardless till now...he was having allergy lately hope it was a factor with his beard growth

One month old is awfully young... puppies should not go to new homes until they're 8 weeks old. Is the pup doing okay now that it's two months old? Not biting you too much, or anything? You should get into some puppy classes once it has its first two sets of shots.

He needs to go through puberty first.

if Grizzly biting me i just play till he tireds out...then goes to sleep...
The Jackrussel is outside since she shed too much fur and she tends to dominate you so its best for her outside where shes free together with the other Terriers

And theres no puppy class here since i live in province...

And RaeganW what do you mean Puberty? you mean he has a chance to grow beard? Not Whiskers right?
