Thread: Puppy eye colour, does it change?

  1. #1

    Default Puppy eye colour, does it change?

    We have a 8 week old female red & tan Kelpie pup.
    She has the most gorgeous greenish coloured eyes!
    Do puppy eyes change as they get older?
    I know this colour is one of the standard colours for kelpie eyes so I am hope she gets to keep the colour

    I've not noticed any puppies eye colours changing... unless they get something wrong.

    My puppy had light brown yellowy eyes - and they're still that colour.

    Most kelpie pups with green eyes will change to amber as they grow up.

    When my Blue and tan Kelpie was a pup she had striking light blue eyes, but as she got older they soon changed to be a light brown colour

    'Ammo' - better take heaps of photos - because as others have said - the colour will change !

    Pups - usually by the 3rd or 4th month will have their adult colour of eyes.

    The greenish colour is not a standard colour for Kelpies. Nose colour is the best indicator of eye colour.

    Some links for you:

    Thats a shame! I will just have to enjoy them as much as I can while they are still there.
    But she still will be just a beautiful with any colour

    Not sure about puppies but our kitten had gorgeous green eyes when he was young, now at 7 months they're VERY orange... I definitely miss the green!

    We had some kelpie rescues a few years back and had some pretty puppy eyes, green and blue:



    Red/choc boy's eyes went yellow/amber, but very striking still. Yellow boy's stayed blue. Their yellow sister had dark brown eyes. Such cute little monsters!!

    His eyes now

    Chances are they'll turn a greenish amber - that sort of colour is quite unusual in a dog in adulthood, unless they're a merle or something (multicoloured eyes seem to be common with them). I think they'll turn amber.

    In my experience, yes. (Happens to human babies too)

    I knew a dachshund puppy whose eyes were on the greener side of hazel - when he grew up they turned a light amber brown.

    I got Luna my blue whippet girl at 12 weeks and her eyes were grey/blue - now at 4 months they are very much a more amber colour. I've seen this in a lot of different puppies. I guess it depends on the puppy though, no matter what colour they turn she will be beautiful (how could a Kelpie possibly be NOT beautiful!?)... just take a bunch of pics now in case they change so you can look back and see the difference
