Basically yes.
I asked the same question many months ago and, if I remember correctly, the answer was that it's not completely impossible, but also not very easy to accomplish.
The fact that it's still not implemented by default in Puppy kind of shows that it's not that trivial.

But Puppy has a great assortment of screen print utilities.
Just browse the graphics forum in Additional software.

Or, even better, do a search in that part of the forum with 'screen print'

But first look in the menu of your Puppy: under graphics, depending on what Puppy you're using, you'll find at least one screen-shot utility.
( mtPaint screenshot, Screeny, TAS, PupSnap, etc, etc..)

But in essence, I agree, it would be wonderful if that key would become usable in Puppy.

Hope this helps.

Have a look at the post by jamesbond over at the Fatdog thread and then see my post in this thread as a follow up for making this work with a specific application (in this case, mtpaint) with Joe's Window Manager as the desktop environment and Wary Puppy. This should also work in Lucid Puppy, though I haven't tested it.

The Precise-550JP and most of Japanese editions enable the Print Screen key.
I don't know on other window managers, but it is easy with jwm.

Insert next entry in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal.
Or for global, /root/.jwmrc and /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc.
Code:
<Key keycode="111">exec:mtpaint -s</Key>

For open box, edit the file /root/.config/openbox/rc.xml, insert next lines before '</keyboard>'.

<keybord>
(snip)
Code:
    <keybind key="0x6F">
      <action name="Execute">
        <startupnotify>
          <enabled>true</enabled>
          <name>Print Screen</name>
        </startupnotify>
        <command>mtpaint -s</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>

</keybord>
