K, I know that chi's go through a 'fugly' stage, well where the long coats do where their coats don't look so nice. I found a puppy who is about 4 months old and his coat looks so sparse, especially around his face/eyes, is that normal? He's really cute though. Sebastian didn't get a coat until he was 8 months or so. For the longest time I thought he was going to be a short coat with frizzy ears lol.
