Thread: White hairs on 10 wk olds tail

  1. #1

    Default White hairs on 10 wk olds tail

    My 10 week blf has two white hair patches (white mixed with black) on each side of her tail about the size of a quarter each. Anyone else ever see this? Maybe she is part Dalmation .

    Mine had one when he was young. It is gone now unless you move the hair away or he is wet

    My blm had an inverted "v" or chevron that was white on his tail. Now at 15 months it is about 50/50. Funny, it never seemed to bother him!

    I have a blm who is 5 years old and he had a patch of half white half black hairs on his tail but now it's all gone.

    My 14 week CLM has a few white hairs on his tail. My older Choc female lab had a few as well when she was a pup.

    My black male had white hairs on his tail, but you had to ruffle his fur to see them. He also had one huge white hair right in the center of his back and man o man did that thing stick out like a sore thumb.

    HAHAHA! My black male had a big white hair right in between his shoulder blades and yeah, it stuck out like a sore thumb too. It drove my oldest daughter NUTS! She would pluck it out and it would just grow back.

    He also had a white patch on his chest that he had all of his short 5 1/2 year life. I figure God marked him for me so I would pick the right pup.
