Dexter appears to be lightening - he has always had flashes of white on his chest & top of head but generally was a deep red ginger, especially his ears. As his hair grows it certainly seems to be fading. I think it suits him so I'm not disappointed but I just wondered if it was a common thing :)

Can't comment on all Cockapoos, but Gaia seems to be changing from a 'Plain' chocolate roan to a 'Milk' chocolate roan.

I met another brown Cockapoo and her owner said she was getting lighter too! So that's 3 ..........

Bodger is definitely fading he was black but he has very reddish brown endings to his fur really noticeable when the sun is on him. When he comes up against a black dog he looks more brown than black. He also has white hairs appearing although you only really notice them when you run your hand through his fur against the way it naturally lays. He is 91/2 months old. His mum was cream and his dad black with a brown background.

Deefer had a mixture of apricot and white patches. The apricot colour increased over the first few months. After his groom on Friday he now is more white than apricot. Tail and Ears have stayed with the colour but the rest is definitely lightening.
