Adult Fur

Do any of you remember when your dog's adult coat started coming in? Rocky turned 13 weeks last Friday, and I still don't see any sign of it except for one spot on his tail. He seems to be losing some puppy fur though...I gave him a good rub down tonight and the little fluff was flying everywhere. It just seems like I should have seen some hairs coming in by now...

Do you see a wave down the back starting? That is the beginning. Enjoy the velvet, it won't last!

Re: Adult Fur

Here is Siren at that age. She has mostly "big dog" hair.



She went from this to that in 30 days.(9 weeks in this one, 13 weeks in the first one.)

Re: Adult Fur

With my longcoats I noticed it starting to come in with a strip of longer hair down the back around 4-1/2 to 5 months old.

Re: Adult Fur

Otto started getting his adult fur about that age. It started with a small half band on his tail. I though he'd sat in coolaid or something and I tried to clean it off!

Re: Adult Fur

12-13 weeks for us, started down the spine, and then spread down the side, also has started to get some color along shoulders and on back legs, fortunately it is as soft as his puppy fur!!

11/30.. you can see a small ring or "patch" on his tail and the tip looks dipped in ink! here


About a week later!
Almost 3 months old to the day here..started having a ring around his tail about a week or so before this pic

12/8


39 days later
4.5 months old, his tail is mostly black at this point..the ring extended! heh



They are all different though! I am sure it will come soon

Re: Adult Fur

That's what I was thinking! Is he a late bloomer or something? Should I worry? Don't get me wrong, his puppy fur is so soft and I love that, but since he's sable I'm extra impatient because I'm so curious about what his adult coat will look like. I checked his back tonight and I didn't see a single hair. No wave. He does have that one little patch or band on his tail though.

This picture was just taken on Sunday.

Re: Adult Fur

I do not think he is a late bloomer. It probably just happens at different times for some dogs, especially since sables all look so different. It all starts with the small patch! hehe

Bet you will have a different looking pup in a month or so!

Any side pics?
