Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi all,

This is Rocky, our new adorable puppy. He comes home with us next month and we were just curious to know if there are any indicators of how his color pattern will change. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Not sure if initial colors are much of an indication, but I'm not an expert. Here is a screenshot of our "Max" when we first saw him and a pic of him now, a few months later.  Oddly enough, he looks darker in photos than he does in real life.

Their coats tend to change every day until they are grown. Likely the darker goggles around his eyes will eventually lighten a tad. Will probably keep some of the darker color down his back but may lighten up too and the buff/brown tones may go away. Many will lighten slightly and the markings that are there might become more defined but the white will fill in more. It's really hard to say. Coat patterns have a mind of their own. Every day is different with them.

I personally think it's impossible to tell.  Your dog should be somewhere in the middle between what their parents were.

Here's Echo as a puppy...he was almost red/white in the face, all white body with a black racing stripe down his back...

At some point he started sprouting eyebrows...

Now he has an open face, is more grey/white with hints of a redish undercoat but he's lost his racing stripe

You just never know... confused

For me, the ONE thing you can know is...red nose? Some variant of white (as in Isabella white)/pale apricot, light to dark red. Black nose? Everything else, including pure white (white is a pattern, not a color.) So...really clarifies thing, huh? lol!
