Default Apricot/red color question

Dima is now 2 and half years old and her color is light apricot.

I was giving her a bath today and noticed that she is getting more and more dark apricot/red hair in her coat.

Is this normal ? I thought they would only get lighter in color as they grow older.

My pups begin their lives about the colour of a brown paper bag. As the weeks go on until they leave, they are definately red. They continue to darken until they are about 15 months old. I will post a few photos of Betty-Jo and you can see the transition. I think it depends on what her ancestors did. THAT is good news for me!!!

These photos are at about two and a half weeks, seven weeks, ten weeks, nine months and eighteen months.

How old is your dog ?

It depends on the dogs genetics really, Most reds fade same with apricots. IMO your girl is cream.

when you breed Quincy to your red girls you should get some nice light apricots Dima is very light and I think most people in USA would call her cream too. I was looking at her pedigree and saw one dog that is really an apricot.


usually creams have darker ears like Dimas also.

Alf is out of two apricots; I expect he'll lighten (but don't mind ).
