Like all Wheatens, the puppies were born dark and will lighten to their adult color by about 6 months of age. The texture of the hair will change as they mature into adulthood. My wheatens are all a creamy white color known as Wheaten. A common 'marking' on Wheatens is the dark muzzle (nose). None of my adults have this darkness, even though all babies show this trait.
An interesting fact: When a Wheaten has a skin injury, the hair will grow in dark like the puppy color and then change to the adult color after healing of the skin and growth of the hair.
As always, please e-mail me with any questions you may have, even if you haven't purchased a puppy from me. I look forward to hearing from you!
