  • Where did the white come from?

    My puppy was all black (minus 3 stray white hairs on his side) when we got him. As he has grown in the past three weeks he has acquired a very small white/black patch on his chest. We aren't going to breed him or anything so this question is purely curiosity, do you think he will get more white as he grows? I could see a patch getting bigger, but just didn't expect new patches...

    LOLS my other thought was stress from having his ears cropped like how people can get white patches after a stressful event.

    Ferg continues to get more dark spots on his white. I think it's pretty normal.

      I think it is normal, just unexpected, will be fun to look for new white hairs... noticed this morning he has a white gotee (just gonna leave it spelled wrong :P).

        I studied about this some time ago, but I've read that truly domesticated animals tend to eventually develop white patches. Even with meticulously careful breeding (same with floppy ears). He may or may not develop more white spots. It'll just give him personality =p

        My Elise has developed a very small patch on her chest in her otherwise jet-black, glossy coat. I don't mind it.
