Thank you, we were not sure as a pup if his color would stay although he had no tan markings, but were hoping he would stay black. His brother started breaking color around 4 months and is now blonde and silver like their dad.He is adorable!! I'm really intrigued as a Yorkie will change color and Teddy has stayed black! I've seen nearly all white Maltese/Yorkies, but never all black! He 's beautiful!!
