My 4 Month Old Australian Shepherd Is Changing Colors!
Hello! First of all let me say I posted once before and I had great responses from the community. I appreciate all of you!
So I have a 4 month old male blue merle (His name is Tripp) who has recently had an seemingly overnight color change. Over the last several weeks he has had a subtle orange hue coming in on his back but over the last two days he has reddened considerably especially on the top of his head and along his back to a lesser extent. His head now is almost peach colored as opposed to black/white/grey like a few days ago.
I'm wondering how long these changes of color/texture/length of the hair will last. About how old are most Aussies before their hair is "permanent" besides the normal seasonal changes?
Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks so much!
Also, sorry if the picture quality is low :( One is from a few weeks ago and one is from today. Hopefully the color changes are visible.
