Top 10 Shih Tzu Colours

white shih tzu #10 Brindle Shih Tzu

One of the most fascinating Shih Tzu colours is brindle because it is not exactly a colour but a striped pattern that falls on a Shih Tzu’s coat. Among the colours that make up brindle are black, grey, brown, gold, white, and cream.

#9 Tri-Coloured Shih Tzu

It is quite rare to see a tri-coloured Shih Tzu. Even if you do come across one, you may not know it. This is because the third colour can only be seen at close range.

The most common tricolour combinations are white, red, and gold; gold, black, and white; white, silver, and gold; and silver, black, and white.

#8 Red Shih Tzu

The red coat of a Shih Tzu is similar in hue to that of an Irish Setter – deep auburn to dark orange. This colour, however, is more common in puppies than adult dogs.

#7 Brown and White Shih Tzu

As its name suggests, the Brown and White Shih Tzu is bi-coloured. Dogs of this kind sometimes have markings on top. Their colour also often changes when they mature.

#6 Liver Shih Tzu

Liver is not exactly a coat colour but a skin discolouration found on Shih Tzu’s eye rims, lips, nose, and paw pads. It is a type of brown that can either be light or dark in colour.

#5 Gold Shih Tzu

Another rare-coloured dog is the Gold Shih Tzu. At birth, it will have a bright orange or red hue that is likely to fade to a yellow shade when it matures.

Sometimes referred to as chocolate, the Brown Shih Tzu’s coat colour is likely to change to a lighter hue when it matures.

#3 White Shih Tzu

A pure white Shih Tzu is not easy to find but it does exist. Sometimes, however, other colours gradually appear over time.

#2 Black and White Shih Tzu

Fun fact: the Black and White Shih Tzu is a black dog with white markings, even if the white colour appears more dominant.

#1 Black Shih Tzu

A solid Black Shih Tzu is rare, which is why it is number one on the list. It is pure black – from the eyes down the paws. Its coat may fade to silver when it matures, but it will retain its black points.
