What color will our puppy be when he's 2?

Kyle is a darling. My best guess on color is many! Our girls change so much through their lives that it is always a bit of a surprise. They usually darken with age and then lighten again with grey hair in their senior years. We’re wondering the same thing right now about Birdie, who was red at birth, then developed a dark puppy coat, and seems to have light reddish adult coat coming in. It’s pretty amusing that Cairns get registered with their color description before we get a look at that adult coat, so their official color is often way off.

My guess is; he'll be different.

Cairns go through several color phases from what I've heard and observed.

Ours began as a 2 tone, with a definite demarcation from the front to back.

Lots of dark fur on his rear half, and 2 shades lighter in front, with a black muzzle.

Now at 17 months... All red wheaten with grey ears and beard. And to top it off, he's a full 5 lbs heavier than his sire, Bandit, and 11 lbs heftier than mom; as our vet said, "he's a well-muscled little dude". It took 5 of them to express his butt glands!
