View Full Version : Annie's nose

We've noticed that Annie's nose, which was jet black when she was a puppy, has been steadily turning brown the older she gets (she's almost 2). Is this normal with Rubies?

Lady`s nose is the same her breeder called it a Dudley nose.

My ruby started to lose the colour around one eye, I gave him elderberry juice for a week & it came back

If it has changed over time- it is most likely a "winter nose", or aka "rose nose". As a dog ages, there is something in the color that sometimes doesn't work as well as it did when it was younger-- when it is warm it can darken. The warmth helps the process of the color.
