Sable getting lighter at 6 months

Is it unusual for a sable pup to start getting lighter at around 6 months? I've noticed that he seems to be getting lighter. He's been pretty dark for the past couple of months, but now he's getting so light that I can see the dark puppy stripe down his back again. It seemed like he started getting lighter in his hind legs, and now it seems like it's all over. Thanks for any advice.

Sables change a LOT in color, so I think this is probably pretty normal (:

Thanks :-) I wasn't sure what was happening. It's kind of exciting to watch! I guess I'll have to wait awhile to find out what his final coat will look like. Thanks again.

Anytime (: He may lighten up, then darken again. My friend's shepherd did that (:

Do a search here for"evolutions of a sable shepherd" my boy changed a ton from the time he was a pup till now.

Was he dark or light as a baby? Their puppy color is closest to their adult color

Thanks for the advice. Your pup is gorgeous. It's amazing how sables can change! My pup was dark as a baby. The youngest pic I saw of him was when he was about 5 days old. He was very dark. Thanks, again
