So I took Charles for his first professional groom and the groomer asked me if I was aware that black puppies can become more silver/grey as they get older.

I have seen silver/grey adult toy poodles but never a silver/grey puppy, is it common that this occurs as they get older?

How would I know if Charles' hair is going to change colour as he gets older, does it have anything to do with the parents colouring?

Charles' mum was pure black and she was 2 and a half years old but his dad was white (2 years old), it would be interesting to know how it works.

Thanks Smile

Hello,

Normally you can tell a silver/grey adult poodle from their coloring as a puppy. The puppy tends to have a more silver completion on their face when shaved down. I have a black toy poodle and his parents were both apricot with black colored poodles in the lineage. Unless your poodle has a grey/silver lineage, I don't think your puppy will become grey/silver. You should also ask the breeder you got him from of his/her liter histories. Hope this helps. Smile

Here is a picture of a black puppy who will turn into a grey/silver adult.
