The reason I asked the OP the question was we've seen quite a few BYB "mixy" looking Doberpups on here, from time to time.Puppies actually shed out several coats between birth and a year--but it depends on when they were born. And since they are short coated and single coated you aren't really likely to notice it. It's sometimes noticeable on red Dobes--coat color may change some from puppy to adult on a red or a dilute (blue or fawn) but if your puppy is black it's a non issue--his puppy coat and his adult coat should both be short and glossy.
And weight depends on what lines he comes from and how they generally grow.
Huh...interesting. Well the coat doesn't really look different to me. I've seen enough young puppies that have some longer fuzzy looking hairs mixed into the short coat that I don't really give that a lot of thought.The reason I asked the OP the question was we've seen quite a few BYB "mixy" looking Doberpups on here, from time to time.
It sounded like he/she might be asking about that fuzzy sort of longer hair.
He/she has since posted pics. The pup's coat does look a bit, uh, different, to me.
