Blanketback My dog was the same way. When his wavy fur came in, there was a bitch stripe running all along his back. I thought that was going to be his final coat type and color, but it changed again: now his fur is straight and looks like a solid black. They sure do change alot Gorgeous pup!

Crocky Thanks again. I just noticed in the last few weeks and wanted to check. I assume the tips will stay dark or will they lighten as well.

Here is a full picture of him

Liesje It's not a given but happens to some, especially as they age.

martemchik In general shepherds have a lighter colored undercoat. What you're seeing is probably the development of what is commonly called a "bitch stripe." It's fairly common in black and tan dogs.

Sp00ks I can't answer your question as I've not had a traditional black/tan before. However, I just wanted to say that I think he has a cool coat.
