Roan is a blue/greyish color that takes over the white in one of their coats, it is usually accompanied by ticking (freckles) of the liver or black coat color. When a roan coated puppy is born, they look just like your typical liver/white or black/white pup. However, within the next few hours or possibly days the skin beneath the coat turns blue/grey, it can take us up to about two weeks or so before we can actually tell if this puppy is going to be a completely roan coated pup. The blue roans (black) coated pups are much easier to extinguish at an earlier age, because of the muchdarker skin pigment. As the puppy grows and matures, the white in the coat starts to grow out and the roan coat color starts to take over, in photographs it usually isn't apparent until around four weeks of age. The puppies continue to develop their coat until around a year old, developing more ticking and darker roan pigment.
