Oh boy, did Cazzie ever change! He was black with a raccoon mask and streaks of rust. As you can see he's creamy now, and only his ears and tail have black streaks and his muzzle is black. You can check out his puppy picture in the thread - I think it's called - First Pictures. It was started just a couple weeks ago.

I had one go from dark to light and get darker again. I learned this weekend technically Dora is likely a brindle that silvered... who knows! HOwever I do think we have a few on the forum who have gone from light to adding redish color!

We took Cazzie to the groomer at about 5 months of age for a clipping and general tidying up. Were we surprised when all his black hair was clipped off! His little raccoon eyes were gone too. I almost thought I was taking home someone else's dog! I said, "Cazzie, is that you???"

The breeder told us he would change from dark to light. I guess we didn't believe her although we could see lighter hair under the black puppy coat by brushing back the hair. It is my understanding that many Havs don't change though.

I can not answer your question for your own dog or statistically, but I know a lot of dogs change. Brutus has the belton gene so we expected the black "spots," by=ut we did not expect his large back area to silver out.

Roxie is back and white without much change, but her black has red highlights.

Benji is black and white and hasn't changed much. Lizzie started out brindle, turned to spots of cream and dark beige, and now she has developed silver in some areas.

Best, Poornima

It depends... most sables get much much lighter while the black and whites (and all blacks or all whites) tend to keep their color pretty well - though of course that's not always true. Brindles mostly keep their colors. Here's Kubrick at 4 weeks, 13 weeks and now at 1 year so you can see the difference. As you can see his hair has lightened a bit but he still kept his black really well too.

Monte's back always had this reddish tint to his black and it is starting to get lighter. His breeder got to see him this weekend and she said he is starting to go silver on his back, this should be fun to see how he ends up.

Riley changed a lot and is always changing, he is getting more red again right now.
