Like the puppy pictured above, most Shiba Inu puppies are born with black muzzles and black around their necks and legs. This will fade as they grow, and go away by the time they are 6 months old.
A good way to tell what the final coloring will be like is to take a look at the parents’ coloring. The picture on the left is Champion Bolt as a puppy. The picture on the right is him now.
