Hey all Freckles started out as a field coated type when I got her, but now she is 11 months old and her coat seems to be getting thicker and softer. do there coats change?

Was she neutered early like many dogs are in the US? George got a LOT more coat and it became a bit softer and woolier when he was neutered at 3 years. Coats often do change a lot after neutering.

Yes their coats do change. She's getting her adult coat... you might have noticed a lot more matting during the transition time. Sounds like it's time to post new pictures hint hint.. :gig
