Default Go grey?

At what age did your chi start to go grey? The vet thinks our little girl is 5 or 6. She has a little grey muzzle. 5/6 seems so young to be grey. We just love this little girl. She is a snuggle bunny who would cuddle all day.

I have found that many small breeds start to show at least a few white hairs around the age of 4. However, some show sooner as they have "ticking" in their coats and it is not due to age that they are "greying" it is their genetic make up.

You know I was kinda wondering why I have seen some young chihuahua's with greyed muzzles and others without I didn't quiet understand that. But now I do.
