Do you think my 7 month old will...

Change color anymore? He's black and tan I think but doesn't have a lot of tan.

Mine's been changing into more of a black and tan and he's only 15 weeks, still changing color. The tan is getting more dominate over the black on the legs/shoulders, ears, and tail area, he's starting to look like his dad (his mom was black and tan too, but she was way more tan.) When he was 8 weeks, he was way more black.. the only tan on his was very little on his face and his front legs and some of his back legs. I'm not an expert, but to me it doesn't look like he'll change much in the color department. He's still gorgeous regardless! The tan looks very vibrant.

I guess if he's still shedding the pup coat, he could change. If not, I think that's it. But what do I know? >__<

He has a great expressive face! He might get a little lighter on the body in the next couple months when he blows his winter coat but his head will probably always be that dark and handsome.

7 months is still pretty young, you probably won't be drastic changes anymore but maybe a little more tan showing here and there

I've found that they change at least until they are one, more gradual changes until two. I had one mix whose coat changed colors (not dramatically) from summer to winter.

I've noticed just in the last week that he's starting to get tan on his shoulders and hips! So I can now see that he will be a saddle back, rather than the blanketback I was expecting! It's so exciting to watch him change. He's been the same for the past four months so these gradual changes are actual pretty noticeable to me. yay!
