|Ken Clean-Air System||Looks like he'll be blanket black and tan, a very dark blanket back, but to me it looks like the color on front and back paws will recede and legs and chest will lighten as he grows. He looks similar to my dog and the rest in her litter as well, all were very dark with what looked to be bi-color markings when very young, but all lightened in legs and chest as they matured.|

|zshaw||Here's my 9 week old GSD, Theo. Both sire and dam are listed as black & tan, but sire looked to be bi color to me. The breeders also listed Theo as black & tan, but what do y'all think?|

Blanket b/t (carries BI) at 7 weeks.
BI color at 7 weeks
Not the best pictures. Looking for more.

Seems to depend on the individual dog and bloodlines. With Heidi and her melanistic black/tan littermates they were gone by 10-12 weeks or so.
With this little guy I seem to remember he was 5 or 6 months old before they totally faded.

|DaniFani||Chris, when do non-bicolors lose the toes/penciling usually? What age can you generally tell pretty certainly, that it's one or the other? Just curious. :-)|

|Kahrg4||Totally agree, bi-color. Just had to add though, how darling your pup looks! Such a lil fluffer.|

Maybe my response was too complicated.
The sire is bi-color.
His papers are wrong.
Not an uncommon color mistake as both bi-color and melanistic black/tan pups look almost identical when young, including both often having the tarheels and toe penciling. So whoever picked his color when he was registered with AKC just messed up. Not a big deal.
