Dark brown growing from black?

I know that colors usually change with the Havanese, but I'm not sure what this is called because the color didn't technically change.. His black hair is still black but now there is dark brown growing. I have seen pictures of some Havanese with dark tips. I assume that is what is happening here..?

I have read that black which turns dark brown is called Havanna brown. A Havanna brown dog still has black lips and eye rims, unlike a chocolate hav. The color is somewhat rare.

A black dog that has red highlights in the hair will usually "silver" as they age. My Tucker did that. I'll attach a picture of him as a puppy and as an adult.

Also, the color for Tucker shifts from dark charcoal through softer gray, and back again.

P.S. Here is an article on the Havana Brown coloring for you to consider, too.

Tux did the same thing. I could see his "roots" were coming in a different shade as his hair grew longer. These two photos are about a year apart.

Thanks for sharing Tux and Tucker's changes. I love the way the color turned out on them. Did the ends eventually change as well? Hard to tell if they were cut off or if they changed. I hope Migo's black does lighten at least a little just so I can see what he is looking at! It would make our training easier.

Tucker had never been trimmed at all, (except sanitary trims and feet pads, oh, and topknot hair,) until several years after this photo. So, it is fascinating, but the whole length of hair seems to change, darker/lighter/darker/lighter... I have no explanation for what actually occurs. It is fascinating.

Our Rex turned 2 in September. He is a Black and Tan, however, his tan is now cream and his black after taking in a brownish shade is silvering. I think over the next couple of years he will likely be silver and cream. I will try to get a picture that shows how the coat is silvering.
