It varies from individual to individual. Some puppies will already be born with brown eyes, and some of the blue eyed bunch will never change color. Generally, if the eyes do decide they want a color change, it's a trait that happens constantly during puppy hood, albeit the changes are usually just darkening/lightening, and not actual color changes.

Usually you wont see their final 'adult' color till after they are 1 year old, and even after they hit the 1 year mark, their eyes may still be changing colors. It's not unheard of for a 3 year old dog's eyes to change color with no health problems!

With that all being said, if the puppy's eyes are still blue at 6 months, though there's a small change of them jumping to brown/hazle, don't get your hopes up too high, as at that stage they're likely to only change between shades of blue.
