Cream colored ears?

Postby snoopy18 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 8:52 pm

I have a 3 month old Maltese and his ears are creamed colored. I just wanted to make sure that this is normal. And also I wanted to know if his cream will turn into pure white as he grows older.

His whole body is white except for his ears, which are cream

It is very normal and only shows a good sign - that his pigment is good.
Most cases, it turn white as they grow but sometimes not completely white. Anyway, there is nothing to worry about!!!
My older maltese used to have cream ears but now (almost 2 years old) he is all white......

my puppy was like that. It is very normal and acceptable. It may get lighter as the pup gets older like mine or it may not, you will have to wait and see.
If you want more info on this subject, just type it in the search engine. There are loads of threads about this topic.

Dear snoopy:
Yep... nothing wrong with cream colored ears. My maltese has cream colored ears and the breeder told me the same thing as one of your other posts.... that is, when they have cream ears, it means there pigment will be darker.... and that certainly is true on mine. Actually, the cream is begining to grow out.... and I liked the cream ears. She is one year old.

So enjoy your little puppy.... i know she is beautiful.

thank you for all your replies! I was first attracted to my maltese because I thought his ears made him look so cute! But then when I took him out, a lot of people were asking me what kind of dog he is, and when I told him that he was a Maltese, people thought it was weird because Maltese were supposed to be pure white.

That's why I was kind of worried.

But I love him very very much and honestly I hope his ears will say cream colored forever because it makes him look so beautiful

Dear Snoopy18:

People who qustion whether your dog is a Maltese just because his ears are cream, just don't know. so, don't let that bother you. I bought my dog from a top breeder, her dogs are picutred in the Maltese Magazine, and I was told by her the creamier the ears are, the blacker points the dog will have because they have more pigment. as i said my dogs ears are getting a little whiter now that she's older, but I liked the cream in them..... take care. enjoy your little Maltese. Martha

my puppy is 3/4 maltese (1/4 yorkie) and was almost all cream and apricot when we got her. Now she is almost completely white.

My puppy is a year old but we got her at 3 months and she had a lot of cream colored hairs her ears and on top of her head, but she's completely grown them out. Don't worry about it, I'm sure it's just her puppy hair (fur). It'll grow out!!!
