How much did your hav's coloring change?

I have an 11wo puppy who is off-white with an apricot tinge to his years. Love his coloring. I'm curious how much the coloring of your havs changed from puppyhood to adulthood? My parents terriers and shih tzu all lightened considerably (losing most of their dark spots). Did your near-white havs stay light or develop deeper coloring? So curious how his coat will turn out!

With puppies that start nearly white, they typically stay very similar when they get their adult coat. If the ears are sable, they can lighten a lot. (BTW, the color PATTERN on your pup is called "extreme parti") But your puppy's ear color APPEARS to be clear red rather than sable. If that is the case, his ear color will probably stay the same or similar. It could even darken a bit, as that is not uncommon in reds.

Our Gracie is a red sable parti. She'll turn a year old Sept 3 and her colouring hasn't changed at all from puppyhood. The only change I've seen is that she's developed pigment spots in her skin, which is common.

Thanks! Yes, his fur is white all over except for the ears, which are a very light peach/apricot color (reddish). Look forward to seeing how he changes as he grows.

Tucker is a sable and has gotten a lot lighter. Still has a lot of the dark in his back but we lost the black tips with the puppy cut. Once he gets full adult coat we will let him get a bit longer His chest and legs and head really lightened up. We wish he would have stayed like the middle (on the rug) picture but it is what it is and he is never short of any cuteness comments and refusal of petting when he is out in public.

Charlie's coloring is a lot like Scout's. As a puppy Scout had apricot coloring on his ears, face and scattered throughout his coat. His coloring has not changed. Truffles was a dark chocolate and now is milk chocolate. 😊

Just found a picture of Scout when he was at the breeders. Looks a little like Charlie! 😊

He does (maybe a little more "apricot"). Wow, he's turned into a gorgeous adult. I can only hope that Charlie is as handsome!
