A BRIT has told of her shock after she forked out £2,000 on a purebred black and brown dog but it ended up changing colour.
TikToker Bigzozz got the small fluffy puppy in 2020 – and now two years later it’s turned completely white.
She posted a video showing the colour change as the dog, named Baz, grew up – and the difference is drastic.
The beginning of the video clips shows the cute pooch with a black face, ears and paws.
The rest of the young pup’s coat was light brown.
But by the end of the video, clips show the dog all grown up – and it’s completely white with just a brown tinge on its ears.

In another video, Bigzozz speculates that she may have been scammed by a dog breeder who may have dyed her puppy.
However, commenters were quick to point out that the colour change is normal for its breed.
Her dog is an Irish Soft-coated Wheaten, which usually sells for about £2,000.
With this breed, their coat gradually grows out to nearly white at age three before maturing into a wheaten-colored coat as they get older.

It comes after a woman thought she had her hands on a pedigree poodle pup before it grew into something else altogether.
Camila Yañex told Twitter how her sister had tried to give her parents a fluffy poodle but it ended up looking like a sheep-herding border collie mix.
Taking it in stride, Camila from Argentina writes "ha ha ha" in the caption next to a picture of a very happy, but certainly not poodle-like pet.
A popular and desirable breed, pedigree poodles in the UK can fetch anywhere from around £800 to £4000 per pup.
"There are lots of different red flags that may signal a breeder is not to be trusted and is not putting the health and wellbeing of their dogs first," Tim Stafford, Director of Canine Affairs for Guide Dogs, told Country Living.
One of these red flags of irresponsible breeders could be that they don't know much about the dog.
Breeders "should be able to answer any questions you may have on the breed," said PDSA vet Claire Roberts.
If they are struggling to tell you anything about the dog, she explained, it could suggest they are a bad breeder or possibly lying and should be avoided.
