NEW BORN PUPPY PHYSICAL CHANGES (just to name a few but not limited to):
When reviewing the pictures that we post of our puppies its important to know the following:
Li’l Aussie puppies are always changing especially during the first few months of
their lives. You will notice and see this transition in our adult dog pictures when viewing the new born pictures to adult pictures. Most Li’l Aussie’s are born with pink noses which will darken during its first year and the hair around the nose area will thicken and change color. The “tan” areas known as “copper” in the Li’l Aussie world, will become darker and richer in color as well as expand. Blue and red merle puppies’ tend to produce more spots, existing spots may expand and will darken as the puppy matures. In addition, the puppies head will change in shape and their coats will get thicker and longer. Eye color in general can be determined between 3 to 4 weeks but can continue changing up into the age of 8 to 10 weeks with some changing slightly into adolescent age (See our Lady, Lexi’s webpage)
