Majority of the Yorkies are born with a black and tan coat, which remains that way for about a year. Then, they get the final coat color that these dogs carry throughout their adulthood. The graying genes play a significant role in their coat’s coloration. The more the graying genes, the paler would the coat appear.

In the black and gold Yorkies, the tan color is affected due to the presence of just one graying gene. This leads to a golden tinge, especially around its face and ears, and even feet. However, the black coat does not dilute and remain intact.
