I thought Dexter got his adult coat when the black stripe started and moved down his back and covered his body and the puppy fluff fell out? Now I notice a longer coat that started at his neck and is now spreading down into the chest area. Next week he will be 5 months. Is this actually the real adult coat? or is just the neck and shoulder area? Can anyone explain the coat process from puppy to adult for us newbies.

Adult coat over here started a little ways down the tail/the back of the neck/wavy fur along the spine. It lengthened to the sides (towards the top of her ribs) and is heading downwards. The tail started about 3 inches below the base of the tail and the adult fur traveled down the tail so that now the tail is adult fur.
