Black Puppy with lighter roots?
I have my first Havanese puppy. He is a little black boy named Bertie, age 13 weeks. Though I did my best to find a good breeder, visited breeder, assured of good first check-up and parents cleared for knees and eyes he has an overbite and needs surgery to remove his lower deciduous canines and then will likely need his permanent ones filed down and root canals. So sorry for the wee baby.
He will get the best care I can get for him. The breeder disagrees with my vet's plan and his vet did not find the problem. Loki's mum has kindly told me about his experiences with his overbite.
He is a very happy and adventurous beastie.
I have a question about black Havanese though. I see that there is a distinct line in his hair, similar to regrowth after a "dye job". The ends are jet black and the new fur all over his body is a lighter black with a brownish tinge.
Has anyone else ever seen this with a black puppy? I am feeding a very high-quality diet but still worry that he is missing something. The colour change could have started with weaning as it is half the length of his fur.
I was so pleased to find this site, I have so many other questions. I will need to find my way around the threads. Thank you all for being there, Lauren (aka Planti)
