Default Possible Reverse Mask.. Maybe

Bison just seemed to lighten up overnight, he now has tan going down his forehead to his nose. His eye tans are also getting larger. So I was thinking he could possibly end up with a reverse mask? It's so strange not knowing what he's going to look like yet.

Very likely.

I have a soft spot for reverse mask GSDs!
No idea why!

What is a reverse mask?

Wow, Hans is so handsome! I had to look through your other threads on him, it looks like his mask just gradually tanned overtime? Did it seem like an overnight thing to you lol

and Bison's sire would be considered an 'ay sable' or maybe fawn? You think the lack of pigment would give him more of a chance for a reverse?

Adorable pup

I do not think he will have a reverse mask however.

Watching GSD pups mature is fun & interesting. Russ had his biggest change from 2 to 3 years.

Thank you! I feel a little bad sometimes, I'm always inspecting him in the mornings. Any new fur, any more teeth fall out, etc.. and if he starts changing later on like Russ, I really do need to calm down LOL

Otto at 8 weeks

Otto at one


He's outgrown the bat on his forehead but he's still my big redheaded dog
