Hello everyone,
So Hendrix is going grey through his muzzel, he is just turning 2 in febuary. I was wondering if this is any indication to his life span? He has no health problems but i was just curious about his going grey. Oh he  is a brindle if that makes a difference. Your thoughts on this would be great.
 
Thanks
Tisha and Hendrix

I guess it would be the same as humans. I never thought of it that way.
I guess it's a silly question.

Not from my experience with a brindle.  She started going grey around that age and lived to be ten.  Kain is going grey and is a senior too.  I wouldn't worry about it,

Clyde started graying around 3 and now nearly solid gray on his face and he's 9, now. So healthy, though. I don't think it's an indication of life expectancy.

Barrett started getting grey just before he turned one and he is also a brindle. Its not a lot and he hasn't gotten much more since then but he has a little bit right by his nose. I think it just stands out more on the darker colored danes! Barrett's actually started out more like the tan color in the brindle and then started to turn more grey.

You can see Barrett's grey in this picture. Its just on the sides and under his noes and on his chin. He's almost a year and a half in this pic.

"I guess it's the same as humans"  Is that a wise crack pointed at me? I see how you are! JUST, because I went bald and not gray you make fun of me .
 
OK,OK, Miss Ebony who is black (hence the name) started to gray around 4. Now she's gray clear up around her eyes at 10.

Your right it's just like humans.......some of us grey early, I started greying at 18 and my family's lifespan on both side averages in the 90's.  So age and longevity really does not have a baring on it.
 
Most of mine have not started to grey till around 7-8 years of age, but I have a young male that has started greying at 3.
 
My old guy will be 10 in March and he just started greying at around 8 now he has it around his eyes.
 
Just depends on the genes....

My Suger who is a mantle started greying at about 2yrs she is 5 now.  As of now she has alot of grey from her muzzle to her eyebrows. Tucker who is merle doesn't show much grey but I chalk that up to his coloring, he is also 5. Spice my brindle has just started to grey around his muzzle he is 4.  My mom says that the greying in them shows character.
 
I love grey or not.

p.s I am with Jeri as long as they make hair dye I will never be grey.
