Beautiful boy, but with tan thighs, he is a saddle back. Blanket backs have all black thighs as an adult. Most saddle backs have black thighs as pups but if the black goes away (as it usually does) then the dog is a saddle back.

That's pretty interesting. So my puppy could go tan still then on his back legs?. I'll have to wait and see.

Yes, possibly. How old is your puppy? Black and tan puppies are born much blacker than they end up as adults. The black recedes and the tan areas get bigger.

The pic is small and dark, but looks like tan thighs also which would be saddle back.

He is just about to turn six months old. I know a couple of people whos pups have so much more tan who are the same age as him, That's why i was wondering.

They come in a variety of colors, so they will all look different. It depends on the genetics what color you end up with. There are members here with "black and tan" dogs that are basically all tan. Look up member Wildo's dog for an example of one that basically ended up mostly tan as an adult. Others start out very dark and end up with minimal tan markings. You can look to the parents and grandparents if you know what color they are as adults, but if not, it's a waiting game to see if the tan keeps receding.

I have two saddle backs. Both have black all the way to their tails. One was adopted older, so I don't know how long her thighs stayed black. My other girl is 9 yrs old now so I can't remember, but I just looked at a 6 mo picture of her and her thighs were still jet black. They are completely tan in the pictures at 1 yr that I have easy access to right now.
