Hi all,

I have a 4 and a half month old mini, when we first got him he was all brown but now he is starting to go a reddish colour in places, especially on his head ears and tail. Could it be the sun bleaching his fur? Or will he change colour? New to owning Poodles so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yup he is a brown he probably will fade as he gets older. The reddish color is is most likely from the sun.
He is a cutie pie :D

I think he may stay brown. Sometimes the orangish tint is just from the sun and not really a indication the the coat will change. He is a cutie either way!

He is a pretty dark brown, I think he will stay brown for some time, the lighter areas are sun bleaching. If you split his hair in these light areas, I would bet that the coat near the body is still a nice dark brown.

Yes, it is quite dark. Is it better if they stay dark? I read it has something to do with there genes/pedigree?? Im a total beginner with poodles, so excuse the thickness!!! :dont-know:

He sounds like quite a guy! I just noticed where you asked if it was normal for them to sleep on there backs. I've seen them sleep in the most odd contortions, yet they look so content. I guess whatever is comfy!

"He is such a man!!! lol!" - Shereen <---- Too funny. Likes to strut his stuff.

I agree he is brown. He definitely looks like he has sun bleached ends. He is quite dark so I don't think he will fade out a lot. Will be interesting to see what his coat does. He really is a sweet little fellow!

He is such a sweetheart!! He is a gorgeous brown for sure! He may fade or he may not, he looks very content and yes they do sleep in the most funy positions and being belly up is what they like best ;-) He is obviously a happy boy! :)
