Will the color fade...pics

Stella Bella is eight months old and we will love her no matter what color.....but she sure is a pretty chocolate. Just wondering from all your collective experience if the chances of fading after eight months gets less.

She doesn't seem to be lightening up at all, color goes all the way to the roots!

She is sort of a crazy little thing and just LOVES her big sister....who sort of just tolerates her. I never knew that it would be so much fun, and a lot easier, with two.

Thanks Estelle

You might ask her breeder, if they have done breedings with the same parents or with either parent or know the line well, often they have an idea if they will keep color. She sure is cute.

She is adorable. I know what you mean about the fading. I was so pleased to see Nina's colors are coming back in after she was clipped. I hope it stays that way. I was told she will get lighter.

My Yogi was mostly black at first, now he is silver and white, it happened so fast, he was a rescue so he was about 6 months.

I don't know...but I hope stella-bella keeps her color. she is one pretty puppy! I know you will love her regardless and she will always have her gorgeous light eyes and nose. but it sure would be nice if she kept it.

When we got Jasper, who was a brown and white puppy (not chocolate though) I told the breeder any color was fine, but we did not really want a white dog! well Jasper turned out to be pretty much a white dog (if you look real close you can still see his saddle and he has silver ears) But we could not love him more.

I was told that you can tell by the roots so keep watching. Mine have stayed their original color. Zoey had a tiny face change she has a bit less white. She lost her white streak on top of her head.It now is like a high light.

Thanks for the compliments...and thoughts on this subject. The breeder did seem to think her color will stay dark (looks just like her father). Hopefully he is right.

Every time I write, or say that, I feel so shallow! As if it matters! We couldn't love this little sweetheart anymore no matter if she turned purple! Her personality is so big, so sweet, it amazes me. I am one lucky old lady to have two of them.

You're not being shallow at all. We know you love her and understand your feelings as her coloring is quite different and it would be nice if it stayed that way. However, whether we like it or not, most Havs seem to change at some point in their lives. That's one of the things that's so unique and interesting about them. You never know what you're going to get. BTW, love those pretty light eyes!

She is adorable and if the breeder thinks she will keep her color then hopefully she will! She is stunning and I don't think it's shallow to want her to stay that way!
