Lucile, with Momo's reddish brown markings, sometimes I think she looks Spaniel-like herself, although probably not in the same way as you are thinking for Rosie.

Thought I'd add my little Dresden in here. He's 5.5 months old now and started getting his spots around 3 months and I swear he's blacker every week!
He's a black and tan parti and we've even found a few tan stripes now too.

His father is a Belton but not as heavily marked as Dresden is right now.

So here he is (there's black all through his tail too)

This first photo was taken at the beginning of the month after a bath. You couldn't see his spots when he was dry then.


And now, dry you can see the colour really coming in (and the tan points on his ears)

It's so much fun to see them change. And some of the Beltons have only a few dark stripes, while others turn really sooty all over, and everything in between!

I'm super excited to see how Dresden turns out. I've been google searching Belton Havanese and some of the changes are incredible!

I'm so ignorant that I don't even know why they are called "Belton", Karen?? What does "Belton" describe exactly?

The Belton pattern is dark spots in the white areas of a dog. You see it a lot in hunting breeds, like English Setters and a lot of pointers. In Havanese, since their hair is long, if they are kept in long coat, the "spots" turn into "stripes" of dark hair (whatever the ground color of the dog is… it's most obvious in B&W dogs, but can just as easily happen in sables, chocolates, etc.)

Kodi doesn't have a lot of spots… you mostly see them when he is wet, or when you look RIGHT down on his back. (as you can see in the early photos in this thread) We have a couple of B&W Parti Beltons on the forum (Like Tracy's Brody) whose Belton markings are so extreme that his "white" areas look almost grey now that he is an adult. Kodi's mom, Razzle, who you can see on the Starborn Havanese web site is in the middle… with more Belton markings than Kodi, but less than Brody. There is a HUGE amount of variation, and it also depends on whether the dog is in long coat or a puppy cut. The black tends to show more, the shorter the coat is.

Thank you! I love the photos of baby Kodi, he's so dear; but he's gorgeous grown-up, too. Lovely to see the progression.

So I took some more photos of Dresden tonight (I'm trying to get monthly ones to watch the progression of colour change) and he's certainly darkened in only a months time.

Wet:


Dry:


And a stacked one. He's not showing the colour on the side yet but it is getting there.

Amazing to see the color change. He's BEATIFUL! Keep the pictures coming. My little one is mostly black with a little bit of white so won't be much change.
