We do not guarantee coat coloring. From the first day old to the 8th week to adulthood coloring CAN change dramatically.
~Silvers are born black and take 2-3 weeks to turn.
~Blues & grays are born black and take several weeks to turn & up to 2-3 years to "clear" into their final coloring.

Special note on Black versus Blue coloring
(Declan & Zoe's puppies):
The difference between a blue and black standard poodle puppy.
On left (Mila) is Blue & on right (Zelda) is Black.
A blue's face will appear a brownish gray, until it clears into a bluish or gun metal gray sheen (wthin 2 to 3 years).

It's pretty difficult to see the difference in photos, until they "clear."
