Default Bicolor or Black&Tan puppy? Please help

I have a new shep puppy (my first one) and I was wondering what color he would probably turn out to be? He has little tan on him. He is 9 weeks old. He has tan on his legs, across his chest a little bit and around his cheek. I'll attach pic of him. Please let me know what you think he will turn out to be. I'm thinking bicolor? Post pics of what you think he will look like if possible that way I have a better idea thanks for your help!

Your pup is black and tan. All Black and Tan pups start out almost solid black, then they lighten up as they mature.

They lighten up quite a bit as they age, here is my black and red at 3 months and 3 years.

Thanks for the responses. That would be great if he turned out to have a good amount of tan like that. His mom was all black and dad was a black and dan with a darker face with some tan highlights on his muzzle. The breeder didn't think he would lighten up to much since he had an all black mom and wasn't showing a lot of highlighting. I don't know much about color,clearly. Now I've trained many small breeds before is it common for a large breed like gsd to be bullheaded during training? I understand he is a puppy but he just seems way worse than I've experienced with my little dogs. Also is it normal for them to cry about EVERYTHING? I live in town and especially never had a large dog in town so I don't want to get in trouble for having a dog that yells constantly so I wasn't sure if that was common for a gsd being a puppy? Will he grow out of all that stuff? (I HOPE!)

Your pup looks black and tan this is my bicolor female. they normally dont have markings on their face or chest



This is her sister who is a Solid black with bleedthru



But i also have black and tans. I have a black and tan that looked like she was going to be bicolor as a pup had the black on her toes and everything but grew up to be a blanketed black and tan
