Oh ok well thats good to know, i thought if she was gonna change she would have started by now, Sarahs Daisy changed by 14 weeks, i think anyway??I think its too early to tell. All my L/C were still changing colour at 1 year.
They do change a lot as pups, about the age of coco now, but they sometimes carry on changing for a year or soOh ok well thats good to know, i thought if she was gonna change she would have started by now, Sarahs Daisy changed by 14 weeks, i think anyway??
so thats y i was thinking maybe she will just stay this colour!
Ha really?? thats the beauty of chis, they suprise u!A friend of mine had a similar coloured chi, it changed completely to blonde, we were all suprised!!!!!
This is what happened to my Jet. As a puppy he was quite dark (8 weeks) then at about 15 weeks he went quite light then a little dark up until he was around a year and a half then darker when her turned 2. Hes now the same colour as he was when he was 2. (Hes 3 and a half now)I have heard breeders say that they can actually change colors for 2 years. Maybe Lisa would know.
Ye she has gotten a bit lighter def, but not alot, im just being so impatient but it feels like iv had her years not weeks, it feels like its taking alot longer than it actually is ya kno!if you look back at her pup pics you can see she has changed but remember coats take time to grow out so you might not see any real changes until a few months later and keep going to about 2yrs old. I have a sable girl too and I was thinking ok come on when are you going to change then I looked back at her pics from the breeder and noticed it more that she did change some. I am like you look at so many pics of sables and say when are you going to look like that? LOL they will when its time.
Oh yey thanks for posting those pics! love seeing colour change pics!here is Cali as a pup first pic I got from the breeder of her
and now at 16 wks
she is a red and white black sabled long coat.
I can't wait to see how my Cali and your Coco changes coat colors:coolwink:
Yes i have seen pretty Maris pics! Shes changed loads!I think you've seen pictures of my Mari & how much she's changed? To me it looks like Coco hasn't yet started loosing her puppy coat. When that happens - then you'll start to see her adult coat growing in & can see what color is going to grow in. But the sabling...if she ends up having it won't show up until it's about grown in. Mari had a lot of sabling as a pup & nnow really doesn't have much except on her tail & a bit down the middle of her back. (she had a "stripe down her back for a while)
Anyway, it's definitely too early to tell but chances are she will probably loose much of her sabling & will be a little blondie with maybe some light blue sabling here & there.
It will fall out. Her adult coat will come in a different texture & sometimes a different color. Sometimes the change is dramatic (Mari lost almost her entire coat in a couple weeks time) but sometimes the change is very gradual & you won't really notice much of a difference visually until a long period of time has passed. But her coat probably won't always be fluffy & soft like it is now. It typically ends up being more silky like...but it could vary depending on her genetics. I've seen some Chi's very fluffy so you never know. But the majority are more silky.Her fur now is thick and fluffy so still baby hair,will her baby hair actually fall out or does it just grow longer?
I imagine she`ll still have some dark tips black or grey no matter wat but we`ll see! And her tails v dark so that might stay too!
