What color will Pip end up?
Havana Silk Dogs, and their AKC parent breed, the Havanese, can be just about any color or combination, and some of the colors of puppies don't remain as pronounced as the dogs mature. The genetics of dog coloration is very complicated—you can read an excellent overview at this Dog Genetics website. It'll be as interesting as it is joyful to watch Pip's development over time. Julie and Agnes, the breeders who own her parents, will also enjoy tracking Pip's development.
