Q: How long does it take for a Shih Tzu puppy’s fur to grow out?
I recently had my 4 month old Shih Tzu puppy groomed, and the groomer did not follow my instructions! My fluffy puppy now looks like a Chihuahua! I’m so upset! He is still adorable, but doesn’t look even look like the same puppy. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process? Help! Thanks!!

well, if you brought the dog to the groomer at 4 months old, they surely assumed you wanted it clipped… because a shih tzu pup could have easily been bathed by you at home, they ARE small, and surely you groomed it's coat, so there was no mats etc.. no it is a waiting game.

It is perfectly acceptable to take a shih-tzu puppy to the groomer. It is best to accustom the dog to grooming at an early age.
Shih-tzus need to have the fur around their private parts and the fur in the pads of their feet trimmed regularly. Shih-tzus also need to have fur plucked from the ears, and it is easier to get a professional to do this.
Anyway, to answer the question, I'd expect your baby to look like a fluff ball again in about three months. The Shih-tzu's fur grows FAST!
I'm sorry that your groomer was such a moron.

Sorry to say, you’ll just have to wait until he naturally grows it back. It could be up to a year. In the meantime, keep him on a diet rich in oils to help his skin and comb him every day. Good luck!

I have a shitzu of my own and he is a year and a half. I shave him myself all the time low especially in the summer because of the humidity I imagine that it could get uncomfortable. However it only takes about a month give or take a week for him to grow at least 3 inches of fur back.
I have noticed that it is not what you bathe your dog in that contributes to his fur growing but more of what you feed him. If his diet is nutritional and not full of fatty people foods then his fur will grow back with no problem and healthier.
