"Lemon Coloring"

3357 Views 19 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  chloeandj
Ty just turned 5 months old and it appears that his areas of "lemon" are actually getting a bit more noticeable. I am not really sure if this is because his hair has gotten longer or the areas have gotten bigger or they have actually gotten darker. I do not plan to show him, am going neuter him and will adore him no matter what color he is. But I am curious, if he is going to turn white at what age would it be?

The book:  Maltese A Comprehensive Guide To Owning and Caring for Your Dog  by Juliette Cunliffe

This book states that "Unlike human hair that grows from the the base, a dog's hair also grow from the end" (pp 75)

I don't know if this is a reputable source or not.

That is not true. Hair is dead. It cannot grow from the ends. It has to grow from the follicle.
