my husband and i are anxiously awaiting our first corgi. but he is upset because "he dosnt look red" and he really wanted a  red corgi. well our puppy is only 3 weeks old, and I know that they look more brown than red at that age. but i was wondering if anyone had a photo of their pup at a young age, and one of once their full color came in.  he is concerned our boy will be sable instead of red. i personally dont care, but he has had a "dream" of one day owning a corgi and has some very specific requirements. thank you!!!!

I know I'm a bit late to this, but here are some pictures of my Ellie-girl to show coat change.  :)




And here she is by the time we brought her home at 9 weeks (in full-on pooped-out puppy mode):



There are lots more pictures on my page if you want to look at them.  Yours looks like he may retain some of that sable-ish color, but I don't think it would be much if any at all.  He may just be a bit slower than the others at coming into his coat.  :)  No matter what, though, he's positively adorable!

Here is Henry, I think he was maybe 6 weeks in these photos? I can't recall for sure.



~2 years old

Usually a true sable will have a "monks cap" on their head which I don't see on your pup, but he could still have some sable areas as he gets older. Hard to tell at that age.

I'm not home to send a pic but if you go to my pics and hit all photos you will find a pic called bonding time and these pups all have a bit of black and all are red/white now. It's on page 11  or12.

:). I am trying to explain that to my husband. But he is a visual person. That's why I want to show him photos of puppies when they were darker, and then the same dog later in life once they changed. He dosnt quite believe the change part. I love him, but I think all this time depolyed has burnt out his imagination :)

When I saw puppy pictures from my breeder, I thought that most of them looked like tri-colors, they were so dark!  Turns out only one was a tri and the rest red.   Be forewarned, though, that it can sometimes be tough for even an experienced breeder to say with absolute certainty which shade of red the pup will be when it matures.  The red pups do start out with a coating of black and gray hairs, and I don't know that you can be 100% sure which will lose all the dark and just be red, and which will keep some black and be sable.

Hahaha oh he is stuck with what we got. I just wanted a way to sort of ease his mind a bit about the color change. He dosnt have much of an imagination for those sort of things.
