Puppy Color Changes

Does anyone have any good pictures that can show a black and tan GSD's color changes from when they are young to adult? Since Lex is my first GSD, I'm not sure if her coloring will fade a lot, or if she will remain predominantly black.

So far she's gone from:



To this:



I don't think she's lightened up much, except for her face (it's a pretty gold speckling right now) and behind the ears (very tan/reddish).

Re: Puppy Color Changes

They lighten up the most by 7 months then it slows down, usually in the face and front chest area. does she have any gray or silver on her back/neck?

Just what you can see in the picture, behind her ears, that's the only not black area besides her legs.

This is a dog from Alexa's family tree:

I'm hoping her color stays similar to this

Sarah and Aureal, I can't believe how much your dogs lightened up! They're both beautiful though, and I love the group picture...so much black and tan!
