    When can you determine color of border terrier

    Hello all,
    We want to get a border terrier into our family.

    Our kids really want a light colored border terrier.
    All puppies are we see are all really dark/black. At how many weeks would it be possible to determine the color the border terrier will be?

    much thanks in advance

    Sorry, no experience with BT's.
    If a Border fan doesn't chip in I would contact someone on the Breed Club site.
    In the UK the parent club is:

    Their page looks to be very informative.

    It's hard to tell in young puppies. The girl in my avatar was almost completely black as a pup. As you can see, her face and legs turned tan. She was a blue and tan, but as a young pup, no one could be sure.

    To get a better idea of adult colouring, look at the parents. If both are light coloured, chances are that the pup will grow up to be too

    Whatever the colouring, they are wonderful dogs
