She is white and cream. Most cresteds that have cream start out as dark brown or even black which eventually creams out. With puffs you go by the coat color and with hls you go by the skin color.

Firstly hi all :) I've not been on in a lonnnng time so you may not remember me . Since my last post I've gained 3 more cresteds , just can't stick with the one huh ? ;) one of my new babies is my first powderpuff , I'm totally amazed with how her coat is growing . She started out black with a white patch on her head , white socks and tai, tip . Now as her coat is growing through her roots are coming through what looks like white . Will her whole coat change to a lighter colour or will she have flecks through the black ? The white coming through looks like someone has thrown a bottle of talc over her and rubbed it through her coat lol . . What do you think ? Possibly turn into a cream ? . . . Thank you :)))

However, they could have a greying gene which means that the hair is not going to stay a true deep black, it ends up grey or streaky. My Bayden started out black and white but he has the greying gene and his hair is not a dark grey. Hope that helps! Sometimes you just have to wait and see with the colors on these guys

My pearl was very dark as a pup, hence her name...Black Pearl. You can see how she looks now at 4 years old on my signature.

Thanks guys for your replys :) she looks like I've dusted her in talc with her white roots , I'm really quite excited to watch her colour change , Its amazing how dramatically they can change over time . one of my hairless started of with only two spots and is now covered in them and they look beautifull ! Such an interesting breed to watch grow . :

Hi All - new to the site. I've been working a bit on CC genetics and have written a short article about the hairless variant and how the genetics work. You can see it here. Thanks.
