Will yorkie poos go back to their original color when trimmed?

I recently bought a yorkie poo and we had to trim her hair really short because it was matted, and she was mostly black with silver and tan. Now shes mostly grey and tan, will she ever be black again?

    As puppies, yorkies are black and tan. Then they ALL lighten to a blue and tan, or silver and tan. The reason your yorkie poo was black and tan was probably because she had blown her puppy coat. Nobody brushed her out, and that is why she was so matted.

    Unless her fur was black from the poodle side, then I think that you will probably have a silver and tan yorkie poo.

    No. Yorkies are born mostly black and lighten to a silver-blue with tan markings. Many Yorkie mixes possess the same trait. Puppy hair in any dog is often a different color than the adult coat. If her hair has lightened, it’s going to stay light.

    If she is a young dog, there is a really good chance that she will grow back to the original colour…..later, as she gets older, she MAY change color,,,,to a lighter hue.

    I am a groomer and have seen dogs go through coat color changes over the years…

    I have a totally black shi-poo cross that comes in…he gets shaved, goes out almpost silver greay but comes back black when he is grown out…he is only 2 years old…

    Other I have seen (Shih Tzu’s in particular) change coat color to a lighter hue after shaving and do not always regian the original color.

    So..it’s “hit and miss”. Sounds like yours is a pup so chanced are really good the dark shades will return.

    Hope this helped.

    Well i’m not to big a fan of any dog poo. But since Yorkie poo’s are probably smaller, i’d rather pick that up than a lab’s poo.

    I had to do the same thing!

    I have a yorkiepoo as well and she was always rolling around and getting matts so we had to shave her 4 times. Every time she always went back to her original color with the same little white spot you will have to wait a few months before you start seeing a lot of fuzz! Hope i helped.
