Show me your dogs dark mask!
When Gunner was little and up until he was between 1 and 2 years old, he had a very dark mask.
It has lightened considerably.
16 weeks:

About 4 months old:

7 months:

1st birthday:

Around 1 1/2 years old:

2nd birthday:

And now, at 4 yrs old:

So, did you have a pup with a really dark mask?

Ben looks alot like Gunner did at his age. Maybe it's like looking into the future. OK by me. Gunner looks great.

Zira had a nice dark mask too....

When we got her at 3.5months:

5 months:


1.5 years

and now (almost 2 years):

She's MUCH lighter then she used to be. When we got her, she was almost all black. Now, she is a large saddle back with a bitch stripe and a good amount of tan in her face.

I do miss all the nice black she had..... :cry:

Ollie's pretty dark and has had very little color change since he was 8 weeks(granted he's only about 3 weeks shy of turning 5 months), in fact if you catch him at the right angle he looks bi-color, lol. Had a guy at the pet store not believe me that he is a GSD because of his coloring. :p His dam though is a solid black WL... I am noticing red hairs coming in on the bridge of his nose and in the right light I can see some red hair on the top of his head too. Very curious to see how he changes! I'll be a little sad if he loses his mask but mostly because that's just how I'm used to seeing now. :)
