Default Show me your FLUFFY PUPPIES...

...and what they look like now!

I'm trying to figure out what Kaiser will look like (coat length) as an adult. The breeder says he will have a short coat, but I'm hoping it will be at least long stock.

You may have seen some of these, of Kaiser:

LOL you asked for it - picture overload!!!!

Kastle

The day I picked him up


The same week




A week later, his ear fluffs (the give away) are starting to come in


His hair stood straight out from his body and was soft and fluffy


Just after his ear tattoo

When I was unsure if he was a longcoat, I asked for advice on this forum as well and everyone asked to see pics of his ears (and feet) that's where you can really tell when they are so young.


The ear fluffs got longer and more intense on the outside, and thinner on the inside of his ears as he got older.

When his adult coat started to come in, his head was the last thing to shed into the smoother, silkier coat. He looked like he had a lion's mane for awhile.




His adult coat is fully in on the back of his head here, the only spots that are not are the backs of his ears and the little bit of his hair under his ears. I could actually watch the line where his adult coat was creep up his neck and back of his head.

It stayed this way for several months and now the ear fluffs on the sides of his head are falling out and there is only the long white furry stuff left in one ear. His tail and "pants" are really full and fluffy. He's a relatively short long coat from others that I've seen.

This is my friend's dog, Pan. He is a stock coat but he has a really lovely, plush and full coat. He carries the coatie gene. But, you can clearly see the difference between his coat and Kastle's coat, although they do feel similar. The ears in particular and the toes are *much* furrier on Kastle. The tail as well.

And then Kastle at 10 months (how old he is now and my most recent pic)

Falon, I have to reiterate how much I absolutely LOVE your Kastle

So basically its still a little too early to tell with Kaiser (ref the ear floofies?). It does look like Kastle has a smidgen longer hair on his body when he was about Kaiser's age...about what age did you "know"?

Thanks I am pretty fond of him too and I did NOT want a coatie LOL

Personally, I think your pup looks like a stock coat puppy. But, I have very limited experience with the coatie vs stock pups. Everyone was adamant that he was...or wasn't. Whichever way they chose, they were *positive* they were right LOL Several well established breeders assured me he was a long coat from a young age. I admitted it to myself when his adult coat came in. The ear fluffs were just getting more and more prominent instead of less. So, about 4 months everything was pretty obvious.

He has fluffs between his toes as well (I'll try to get a pic for you). They aren't long at all, like others I have seen, but they are there. The texture of his coat was different from stock puppies that I was around as well. Like cotton fluff it was so light and stood straight out.

When you look at the picture of him and Pan, you see that the body coat is pretty much the same (in real life, Kastle's is a smidge longer), but the backs of the back legs, the tail and the ears are a dead giveaway. Luckily (for me), that's the only parts that are "long".

Here is the thread I made when I wanted opinions on his coat, I got a lot of great info and pictures on it Poofy vs Coatie

Everything Falon said about Kastle pretty much describes Halo. I was one of those that was adamant that he was a long stock coat - and I was right! Actually, it looks in the more recent pics that his coat along the back is a little longer than Halo's. She turned 3 years old in November, and her coat is very thick and plush, and VERY soft. Several people have commented on how soft she is for a GSD. Keefer's coat is much longer on the body, and it's got a smoother, silkier feel than hers. They've got the hairy hobbit feet too!

Here they are:

Halo at 7 weeks old, 3 weeks before we got her



Just got home from the airport at 10 weeks old



With Keefer at 12 weeks old



15 weeks old



5 months old



A month shy of 2 years old



Almost 2-1/2



3 years old - floofy butt & tail!

Default Raina

My first pic - 12 weeks (still in Germany)




2 years old - see feet floof and ear floof



Now - 4 years old



I don't seem to have one of a close up of her feet fluff. I always call it the wings on her feet cause it's so fluffy
