will this guy keep his color??

I posted on another thread that my best friend's brother got these two babies last wk. She's taking the one on the right, because they're more then he can handle

She's choosing this one, because she loves his coloring. But, why do I think it'll change? I thought I'd seen havs with these kind of markings that turn white. Or I could be totally wrong, lol.
I know the b&w will stay. But, clueless on other colors.

Thanks!

Awww what cuties! Too bad she couldn't keep both, but I know first hand how much work two puppies are!
My best guess is that the sable around his eyes will def lighten- it depends on his genes/lines as to how much it could lighten. He could go totally cream/white or he could hang onto a bit of a golden color. But he def will look like a different dog when he grows up!

Both of them are sooooooooooooo cute! It will really not matter if they change colors later because you will have already fell deeply in love with your puppy.

I can pretty much promise he'll lighten up to be mostly white. Riley had similar coloring with even darker ears and you can see how white he is. They are both adorable!

I seriously doubt the color will stay to much. But you never know...

Will your friend feel any different about the dog if it does change color? If so..........

My best guess is the one on the right will white out for the most part and the black and white could stay b&w or the black could silver out.

That sable parti is irresistible! Like others said it'll probably fade to mostly white with tipped ears. I'm a sucker for the tipped ears! <3

Ok, glad I didn't imagine I'd seen or read it before.

I'm not sure if it'll change her mind on getting him or not. I know that's her first choice, simply because of how he looks NOW. If she knew he'd change a lot, she may lean more towards the other.
She's sort of on the fence right now with taking either one. She's got two labs, three kids, and honestly..I don't think it's the right fit. Her brother got these two, and has decided he can't handle them. And plans to re home them both.

Thanks!

Tritia, without knowing the parent and the genetics behind the coat colors, none of us can give you more than a wild guess. The black & white looks like it may fade, because of the silvering on the eyebrow (unless it was born that way) and possibly some silver on the lower cheek. The sable parti also looks like it may fade, at least around the eyes. It looks like that greyish color has already lightened significantly. The gold/caramel and sable ears are the part that you just don't know without family history. Some of them hold, but a lot of them don't. If the breeder really knows the history of both parents and color genetics, she/he will have the best prediction.

How old are these two? Do you know if the black & white parti has gained more pigment on the nose in the last few weeks? It doesn't matter in regard to the puppy. I'm just curious.

Edited to add:
Whoa! I just saw your last post. He plans to re-home them both? Where's the breeder? Why not give them back to her/him? Yikes.
