Default Puppy Coat Changes

Rocky's coat seems to be going through a massive overhaul lol. This first picture was almost three weeks ago, the second was moments ago. Im just curious how many changes we're going to see. (Plus everyone loves a chance to show off their furbabies =) )

Im also loving that his tail is looking lip a long dipstick right now.

Your puppy is very cute! Around 4 months he'll lose that fuzzy puppy coat and gradually get his slick adult coat. He'll continue to lose more dark and lighten up until he has his adult saddle or blanket around two years old. Most of the big changes will happen before one year.

Rocky is a cute little fellow, it's good to have pictures of their changing so that you can go back later and look at them.

See how much my boy's coat color has changed? He was around 9/10 weeks in the puppy picture and is two in the adult picture.

Thanks for the responses =)

My husband is gone for a month training and I told him to be prepared to come home to a completely different dog. Im thinking those ears might pop up any day now too.

Our little Vandy is changing a lot too. We were expecting her to get lighter but, her face has gotten significantly darker and her legs too. Her tail has a lot more black in it that it did. She's always had a subtle saddle and, what's coming in there is black with hints of a rusty brown. Our adult gsd is very dark so we're loving it.
She's incredibly girly though. She has always had very very light fur on her eyelids with a solid black mask around her eyes. She looks like she's wearing eye shadow. She also has a black stripe down every toe, as if they've been painted. It cracks me up and, completely matches her prissy personality.

That is an amazing difference. They do change alot from puppy to adult, but your photos are the most difference I've seen..

Beautiful dog!

You think HE'S coming home to a new pup? My (now ex) husband left when our GSD was 12 weeks old for his deployment and came back when he was a year and 12 weeks old lol! He opened the door to the garage and my dog saw him and was like OH HECK NO and he charged the door, hackles up, growling and barking... then he saw mommy behind this strange guy and got all friendly lol.

Now I let my ex come over and see him because in the short time they were together, they really grew a fun bond. It's kinda like visitation LOL.
