The dark tipping will remain only if the darkness originates from the roots. Finn maintained the dark tipping on his body until he blew coat, and then that hair was lost. He still has dark hair at the tip of his tail, the tips of his ears, and the top of his muzzle. But that hair was/is dark from the roots. I am hoping he will keep it, but who knows with these guys. Whatever pup you choose, or chooses you - I would highly suggest visiting the breeder - you will love dearly - color doesn't matter.
