Color Transformations

I am just curious about your dog's color transformation from puppy to adult. I'll be getting my puppy in a few weeks and would like to possibly get an idea of what she might like like as an adult.

I know there are other threads like this, but many of the pictures didn't show up for me.

If it’s the puppy in your avatar she is most likely a bi color in which her color won’t change much at all, if at all. If she’s a blanket back the the amounts of tan will spread a bit and if she has a blanket back parent - that will give you the best clue of her mature coloring / pattern.

EDIT: I really didn't really understand what you meant and just posted away, lol. My pup doesn't reflect your pup, but have fun looking anyway

Mine's a patterned sable female

8.5 wks

14wks (It seems my pup went through her color change around this time from 13wks-14wks. 14wks is when the patterned coat started to show up and 15.5wks is when you could see how the pattern would look)

20wks

Mine didnít undergo anything substantial, but lightened then darkened a touch.


When she first came home:



This is the lightest she got, and this was around 3 months old:



By 4 months, she had already darkened again:



And here she is about a month ago (9 months):


The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

I don't care if they reflect my puppy, I just want to see color transformations of any dogs. Gives me an excuse to look at puppy pictures lol

If you go to the Pictures section, there are a few members, including me, who do weekly updates and pictures of our pup. Go check them out

Lol when I first opened the thread I thought "oh there's my boys twin" I think that every time I see her. I'll pm the pedigree so I don't derail the thread
