My Male GSD Pup
I cannot figure out how to post my own thread, so I figured I would post it here since it has to do with a similar topic. Hope thats ok
I have a male German Shepherd Puppy, I assume he is a bi-color. But the only thing is that he is super dark. He is 10 weeks almost 11 weeks. At birth he had no tan at all, not even at his vent. None between his toes, well at 5 weeks old I noticed that he had tan in between his toes and a few tan hairs at his vent.
Well now at 10 weeks, he has a small amount of tan in his ears, a bit on his cheeks(a camera can't pick it up), alot between his toes and alot at his vent. Also he has tan going up the back of his legs. Very confused by this, I have been told that he is a black with bleed through. But I am not totally convinced.The pictures do show the tan, but you can see more of it in person. It is diluted though.
above pic-shows the tan between his toes
the tan on his front leg, its also on the backs and in his thigh

I am new here to the site and my partner and I have 2 beautiful German Shepherds. Our girl Remy is 1 1/2 years old and was originally listed as a bicolor but the more research I do it looks like she might be a blanket black and tan. Here are some pictures of her and some with her brother Zulu who is a sable

Here you are:
Ehret German Shepherds - Breeding Announcements
Frankenhaus German Shepherds - Color Genetics
There are three coat lengths:
Stock coat - standard coat length with undercoat
Long stock coat - Long coat with undercoat
Long hair - Long coat with no undercoat
Stock coat is the dominant allele and one copy of stock coat gene is enough to make a dog stock coat. In order to produce a long coat, both alleles must be the recessive long coat. I remember making a chart of this awhile ago:
Color and coat genetics are independent of each other - however, long coat alleles tend to be more common in WGSL as most WGSL will carry the recessive for long coat.

I for one would love to see a complete listing of all the different coat types and lengths. That way everybody would all be on the dame sheet. The reason I say this is because some would call an all black almost puppy with a little tan or brown a Sable while others call it a bi-color so it would help eliminate some ambiguity for me and probably a bunch of others following this thread too. Anybody got a set of pics like that??? Sure would be helpful, especially for a thread like this one. Thanks a bunch!!!

|KZoppa||Your pup already has too much tan to be a bi-color. I'd have told the lunatic to get away from my dog lol.|

Thank you. That was a VERY helpful post!

Your pup will be a black and tan.
Some examples of my black and reds:
Black and red pup far left, adult Black and red, and sable pup on the right
Bicolor pup - see how far the black extends down her legs, and she has penciling on her toes. Face and chest almost/all black - little to no tan or red extending above her feet.
