Why doesn’t my Chin have as much hair as Chin in pictures?
Genetics, hormones, age, diet and climate all may influence the amount of coat on a Chin. We generally expect puppies to lose much of their coat some time between five and twelve months of age – sometimes they almost look naked! Full coat may not be present until two or three years of age. Females also lose coat after their seasons, so an intact female will not have as much coat as a male or a spayed female.
