I know as my puppy grows her colors will change. I really like the look of shepherds that are more black than tan or red. Katie is almost 4 months and is still very black in her face and back with most of her tan or red (i'm not sure which yet) on her chest and paws. I'm sure it's different from dog to dog, but about what age should her colors stop changing?
blanket back, my dog is 11 mos and really hasnt changed all that much from a puppy (just a little lighter on her face). some dogs change dramatically from puppyhood to adulthood. your puppy is very cute, love the ears
I agree with Lee, color can change literally overnight, and looking at the parents may give you more of an insight into the coat pattern....bitch stripe is one that is genetic and even a dark pup may end up pretty light, especially with a stripe down their back. Katie is adorable in this stage! Take lots of pics.

Mine is 9 months and she is still changing. She is losing the black and the tan is coming in.
The first picture is 13 weeks(lots of black), the second picture is about 6.5 months(the black is starting to fade), and the last picture is 8.5 months(this one you can see the black on the back legs fading)
Very cute girl you've got. Her ears are HUGE! Our pup is very dark as well, she has started to develop more color on her head, chest, and tail in the last month or so. Ours will be a blanket black and tan as well, but how much color is hard to predict. In our case, her mother is black and tan with a good amount of color, but her father is solid black with lots of solid black, and bi-colors in his ancestry. I'm kind of expecting her to retain a lot of her black, but as you said, you never know.
