Belton Marking Progression Pictures

On May 7 I had to get Brody shaved down when I took him in for his groom. Once shaved, I could see without a doubt the Belton spots. I was actually shocked how prolific they were.

Anyhow, I've been trying to remember to take a photo around every week to see how the spots change as his hair grows out. Even after only 1 month there is a big difference.

Photo 1 is from May 7.

Photo 2 is from May 15

Photo 3 is from May 25

Photo 4 is from June 8

Thanks for sharing - that is very interesting compared to Brody's avatar.

On a sidenote - there was a post on the board last week about Belton coloring, and I wanted to get a better idea of what that meant so I searched on it and clicked on the first choice and BAM got a virus. $200 and 3 days later the Geek Squad had me cleared up And I never did see a pic of the Belton coloring - until today, so thanks!

You searched on this forum? Or on the internet? I've never heard of anyone getting a virus searching on the forum?!?!

If you want to see more Belton photos (including some of Brody and several other forum Belton Havs) here is a thread I started a while ago showing Kodi's coat progression from puppyhood through adult. Kodi has a lot fewer Belton spots than Brody, so it's nice to see the variations as well.

No I meant a virus from the internet Karen.

But thanks for the link to your previous post. I just couldn't resist telling the story when I saw the term "Belton" again. I wouldn't have thought that would be a hot topic for viruses!

So Tracy and Karen, do you think my puppy Cash has Belton coloring (first picture)? When I look under his black hair the skin looks black, and his mouth has black pigment in it also. When I look under Tango's brown hair (second picture) it doesn't look brown. Just wondering - thanks!

It's not really possible to tell from these photos. It is normal for the skin to be black (or bluish) in the areas where the dog has black hair. I have no idea with a chocolate, because I've never had one.

Belton marks would be seen in as small spots in the WHITE areas. On your b&w pup the spotswould be black, on the chocolate and white, they would be chocolate. But either could be Belton. (or not). I think they are still a little young to telll for sure.

Interesting. Thanks Karen. And btw when I first got onto this website I was so taken with your Avatar. Is Kodi completely white except for his head? I have never seen another Hav like that - so cute!

Thanks! I think he's a cutie too, but I might not be completely impartial!

He has a big round spot on his back that, with his long hair, now looks like a stripe of black going down both sides of his body. If you look at the thread I mentioned a few posts up in this thread, you can see what he looked like from a baby right on up.

Sorry Karen, I looked at those last night but apparently forgot about the black on his body. Either way he is very good looking!
