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!

Also if the breeder was not breeding for a specific type it is very easy to lose that type within a few generations. The dog may not really be ASL or WGSL.

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..

what do your parents say he is? ask your
parents for his papers. call the breeder and
ask what he is.

could just be puppy coat, which and tends to be fluffy and can have a gray tint. Regardless he is a handsome boy!

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.

There are many...it's just pigment. Nothing special about it

I thought GSD nails are supposed to be black? The only ones I've seen (any line) that aren't was when Nikon had an infection and the bad nail was white until it completely grew out black again.
