Do you notice that as they mature their color gets darker or lighter.  I have a little flashy fawn puppy.  She has some dark mixed in her fur along the base of her spine and tail.  SO I wonder if she will get more dark or if the dark will lighten as she grows?  I don't think she is brindle,  both her parents are fawn.

I will try to post some pics later today :D

Yeah I know about the genetics (well sort of)  I know fawns can have brindles and vice versa.  in this case all 9 puppies were fawn and flashy fawn.  She is flashy fawn.  she just has a little bit darker area towards her back end and tail.  It doesn't look brindle.  At least to me.

So I'm still not sure if the fur gets darker or lighter as boxers mature.  I have a friend who breeds yorkies and says yorkies get lighter and she thinks boxers get lighter as well.  and  Boxerbaby18 says  his/her min pin got darker.  So any one actually know what happens with boxers?

Now that she is 9 wks I don't see those black hairs mixed in on her back and tail much at all any more.  So I guess like Newcastle said the "guard hairs" are falling out.
