Have you ever seen this?

Hello,

I have a 4 months old male GSD. I never known what you would consider his second color. He is definitely black and something. Lol not sure if it's silver, cream, or tan. I say no in tan. Anyways, the last couple of weeks the parts of him that used to be all black is turning white/silver in color since he's lost his puppy fur. Is this normal? Has anyone ever see this type of color change, with the amount/pattern?

normal color change for a dog with a saddle or blanket pattern....look at his parents, that is what he will end up looking like...

all those colors are variations in depth of pigment of brown....from "silver" to "red" - they are all still black and brown - "schwartz und braun" on German papers.....the names silver, cream, tan, red are just descriptive words coined by people to more accurately describe the richness or lack of richness in the pigmenting

I'm not that familiar with sables, but that's what your dog's colour is. I think he's going to be a silver sable.

I'm sure someone more familiar with the colour will correct me if I'm wrong!

That's interesting... he almost looks merle in these pictures. In the baby picture, he looks black and tan.
