Chocolate Tricolor consists of a medium brown, tan and white. This is what I like to call the milk chocolate coloring. Like the traditional tricolors, these pups will eventually have the tan ears and face over the course of approximately 12 months. Remember, the white will stay white! These are a beautiful variation of the classic tricolor.
Traditional Tricolor is black, white and tan. The classic beagle look. However, when the puppies are newborn their head and ears will be black, sometimes they will have a tiny bit of tan above the eye and on the jaw. Over time the black will gradually start turning tan, but remember this only applies to their head and ears. If there is any white on them it will always remain white. It takes about a year for it to fully turn tan but you can start to see the progression of the color change before they ever leave here. So, when you see pictures of puppies on my website keep in mind that they will eventually have that classic beagle look that we have all come to know and love.
How soon is too soon?
Many times I am asked "When can I give my puppy a bath after recieving him/her?" As soon as you get home! I give your new buddy a bath right before transport, but during the flight or car ride they often get motion sickness. This will leave a mess in their crate so that will also need rinsed out. Bathing your puppy will start the bond that you will carry for the life of your pet. When they look at you with those sweet beagle eyes as you're drying them off you can almost see yourself and your pup falling in love.
So let's face it, it feels great to take a long bath after traveling and animals are no different, so grab a warm towel and get soapy!
