Thanks for all the feedback. Aren't wgsl generally black and red?
I would call my Axel black and tan but he has reddish highlights underneath him and his ears and face and his tan looks to be getting richer golden. He's 16 weeks and 38 pounds now. Maybe slightly heavier. One thing that confuses me is his back legs are turning lighter almost grey ish white now. Will this turn tan. I can see the reddish tan poking through his back legs. He still has his puppy fur. Only a strip down his back has changed so far.
It's really hard to say what line he is from based on the photo, we need a pedigree, or at least the registered names of the parents--did you get an AKC registration slip? He is a nice looking pup, regardless!
my guess is pet puppy, maybe not registered and not showline. He is cute but doesn't resemble show line, I am sure he is a sweetie and will make a nice pet and please remember to socilaize him, try to take him somewhere new daily and introduce him to new people and situations..
Well, from the posted pictures, he resembles my dog enough to be a littermate, and Ranger is full WGSL. Plus, I'm just not familiar with that many American dogs of any line with toenails that are that black.
