    Hi everyone- we just welcomed our very first litter of puppies and I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me distinguish their color? Mom is a light apricot color (darker than fawn but not bright orange) and dad is a brindle. Puppies are now 2 and 1/2 weeks old. I believe puppies 1 &2 will be apricot like mom (both are very close in color with the apricot color starting to extend down the back), but puppy 2's head is a much lighter shade, and she seems to have more black points- thinking she will be fawn? Possibly fawn sable? Or is the black back just puppy hair and will fade? Puppy 4 is my biggest question- he has apricot color over the top of his head but it quickly fades to a dark brown by the ears. He is much darker than the rest but not black. His legs appear to me to have a combination of colors but I am not sure if this is just puppy fuzz or brindling? I do not see obvious brindling anywhere else on body but he is so much darker than the other puppies it has me thrown for a loop. Also he has a white patch on the chest and one white hind toe. Thank you for your time.

    You have cute little mouses :) dont know much about colors but my two boerboels where all dark when little then got lighter as they grow up one much more than other, so yours could get all sort of colors :)
