    Question Do puppies change color as they grow?

    Hi guys! I will be picking up my first EB puppy in a about a month and can hardly wait! I put a deposit on my little guy when he was a week old and have been getting weekly pictures of him from the breeder since. I love seeing new pictures of him, but I have a question about his coloring. He was a brownish color when he was born, but now at 3 1/2 weeks his coat seems to be changing colors. Is that typical of bulldog puppies? Both of his parents are a light red/fawn. I don't really care what color he turns out to be (although I do love the red/fawn) What are your guys' thoughts? Do you think he's changing? This first set of pictures are of him on Dec. 4th and the second set I received yesterday.-screen-shot-2014-12-13-11-44-10-am-jpg-screen-shot-2014-12-13-11-44-31-am-jpg

    Photos depend a lot on the lighting. Right now he looks like fawn, and the patch on his face looked fawn, and in last photo face patch looks brindle.

    Our girl was a really red brindle but as she grew and everything stretched out she definitely got a little lighter in color.

    Yes! They totally do! When Orion's brother and sisters were born they were all darker. As they got older their markings turned more red/fawn and less dark brown.

    Here is a video and a photo of all three on their birthday. @MyLittleEcho

    Echo is the solid color body on the right of the photo



    Echo is at the bottom of the video and here is a photo of Echo at just over 1 month old.
