Kemo is the same...daddy was long, mom was short. What he is, is a very soft shorter hair. Like humans it depends on what gene is prominant. I would not mind if he got a little fluffier but I also am posting a question about hair......

My chi also had a short haired mother and long haired father, i asked the breeder i got him from and she said although he has very short hair right now, he will be a very, very fluffy, long haired, white coated dog. He is 5 months, has a dark tanned coat and is very short haired. How she knew this, i have no idea, but ask a proffessional, they really seem to know what to expect and how to tell. That's all i can offer!!

Do you have any pictures of him? You can tell when they are very young if they are long or short coat. When I bought Bijou she was 7 weeks old and it was very obvious which were long and which were short coats. Does your dog have any ear "feathering"?
