Question:

: My male, Calvin, is now 9 months old. He is mostly smooth coated, but has long hairs along the top of his back (looks really funny when they stick up sometimes), the backs of his lower legs, chest, and muzzle. His sides are smooth, although the hairs are quite longer than my female, who is a smooth coat.

: Will he get hairier as he gets older? Also, is he considered smooth, rough, or broken coated? I think both his parents are rough coats, but I don't know about prior generations.

: Just curious. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Robyn,

From your description it sounds to me that Calvin is a broken-coated terrier but I would have to see him to be sure. These terriers are always a work in progress and you might still see some change in coat texture, especially after blowing any puppy coat.

Regards,
Marie
