Shih Tzu Progression Of Eye Set Examples.

Shih Tzu Progression Of Eye Set.

Sometimes a pup’s eye’s aren’t centered correctly in the eye socket. It may be they were born with weak muscles that will never get stronger, but most will get stronger and the eyes can become accurately centered.

Although it has been said that it is genetic, it is NOT always the case. During my eleven years of breeding Shih Tzu, I have experienced many different eye sets on the puppies I have raised. There is NO clear cut answer as to which pups are going to keep the weaker eye muscle and which aren’t.

I have watched far set eyes become very well centered within a few weeks and I have seen where the development of the muscles take much longer.

The pictures below are the same puppy. They were taken 1 month apart.
