Colour Changes in Black Havanese

I am an excited soon to be new Havanese owner!! My breeder has 2 litters which arrived 2 weeks ago. Now comes the difficult decision of choosing a pup. There is one in paticular I am continually drawn to (haven't seen him in person yet so this is based only on pictures so far). He is black with white markings on his paws, tip of tail, chin, forehead, diamond on the back of his neck, and v on his chest. His father is black and white and his mother is black/silver/tan. So, I'm wondering "generally" what blacks tend to do in terms of changing colour? My breeder thinks there may be some silver coming through on his legs. I know there are no guarantees, but do blacks generally keep their colour (at least more than sables)? Any experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated!

I think if the breeder is seeing silver coming threw the pup probably will not stay a pure black and white.

I have two black havanese, one with white points and the other with silver points. My 3 year old has stayed black, but has some white hairs poking through all over. My six month old started black and has turned an off black color, and sometimes he even looks dark brown. I can't wait to see what he does. I will post some pictures, they are not very good. I can only get pictures of them together when they are playing. The first 2 pics are when he was younger and the last 2 were taken a few weeks ago.

I have 2 black guys. Scudder stayed a deep black, but Fred has lighten to a lighter grayish black. Don't get to hung up on color. Once you meet them you might be drawn to a certain personality. I like to pick a pup on what temperament will fit my lifestyle. I have 3 really calm havanese because of that

Jack started black but we knew that he was going to silver out quite quickly. You could see the dark silver/pewter color at the roots. His head still has some black.

TTFN,
Pam

Milo is a tri color Irish Pied. He's retained most of his color, though when he was shaved down you could see that he had a lot of gray in addition to the black, white and beigy tan.

When Kirby came to us he had almost a burgundy color to his back and the top of his head. Now he is very dark black in those areas with the tan and white on his paws and legs and eyebrows etc. He has like a white bib on his chest. He has a perfectly white diamond under his tail...if you know what I mean. How it stays perfectly white is beyond me! I love all the amazing colors of this breed. You can't go wrong no matter which pup you choose. He or she will be beautiful!

Personally, I'd be more interested in personality than the color of an animal.

Although the Havanese breed is amazing in the sense that most all puppies are wonderful, I'm a firm believer in letting the puppy choose YOU rather than vice versa.

We knew we wanted a female, so that made our choice somewhat easier. But I do know that when we picked up our puppy, there was at least ONE who was quite aloof and not very social. Not that the breeder didn't do a fantastic job, but that was just what his personality was like. He was actually the 1st to be chosen too b/c of his color!

I'd suggest taking your time and going out to see and interact with the puppies.

Just my 2 cents.
