If your puppy is a solid color, it is more likely to retain that color into adulthood. Becoming lighter, though, is very common.

In sables and partis, if you brush the hair backward, the root color is usually the color the dog will be as a 1-2 year old. Even then, they can change color again.

No matter what color your Havanese puppy is, it will be your best buddy!
