Puppy - Help!

Hello All,

The puppy that we are interested in adopting has a pink nose from birth. Is it normal for a havanese puppy to have a pink nose?

Thank you.

I THINK that happens and they eventually change to black.

The puppy is about 10 weeks now. Breeder did not say that it may turn back to pink. We walked out with the impression that it'll stay pink. Are we wrong?

If you want your puppy as a conformation show/breeding puppy, a pink nose is a problem. If she's a pet, it makes no difference at all. If you love her, and she comes from a good breeder who does proper health testing, go for it! She's just have something a bit "unique"!

Most of us who have Hav pets have dogs who are less than perfect in one way or another, even if it's minor! (if they were perfect, the breeders probably wouldn't have sold them!)

Krandall is right.

The breed standard allows for a black or brown nose (dogs with a chocolate coloring).

If you're not planning on showing the dog, I wouldn't be too concerned. As far as the pigment changing back from pink to brown or vice versa, perhaps your Vet can shed some light on that.

Thank you all! We really like the puppy. I read somewhere that a puppy with a pink nose has high risk for sun burns..so i was worried about it as well.

Thanks again very much.

to chime in..I am no expert, so I will just share what I know Vana when rescued had a lot of pink in her nose- think it was from digging for food, it has darkend up but she still has hair loss on her nose- hoping it grows back.

Drake and Izzy's (schnauzers) last litter has a little girl with pink toes and nose- she was the only girl and this was a very sweet quality- by the time she went home 9 wks they had darkened up. here she is w/ her brother
Minnie Bell and Mickey Bear- they live together

Eva started out with a freckled nose that was mostly pink. Now it is mostly black with just tips of pink on the nostrils so you never know how the pigmentation will go

There is a higher risk of allergys and sun burn in white colored dogs, I'm not sure about the pink nose unless the dog was a white. But I had a Husky with a ski noise that is a type of pink with drk and he never had a problem.

pinkish nose

Here's our Cali, whose nose is pink or sometimes light brown.

She is a sweetie, no matter what color her nose is!
