My 10 weeks old Shih Tzu puppy don’t like to go out for walks, although I tried to walk him twice a day. He would walk a few step and just start sleeping on the grass. During the day, my son wanted to play with him, but all he does is belly flops. I thought puppy is usually very playful and energetic. This puppy I have doesn’t like to move around at all, is this common for this breed of dog?

NO!!! it is not common at all. shih-tzu’s are usually VERY energetic and playful.
if i were you i would talk to the vet and maybe have some tests done on your puppy.
he may be coming down with pneumonia or something.
i wish you the best with your puppy.
here are some pix of my shih-tzu. he is now 11 yrs old.
