Black and Tan with white?!

Hey guys, so my pups around 5 months now and her colour is starting to settle from what I can see. She’s got strange colouring though! Her back is jet black, head and legs are red/gold but she had light tan underside and white stripes on her sides. Also the top of her neck is multi coloured! See image. Any ideas why the random colours? Her mum was white and papa black/tan. Thanks!

It’s totally normal, and a common pattern scheme with lots of GSDs. My girl is a sable and she has the same stripe, and her neck is also a lovely mix of red, black, and tan.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

normal - not white -- tan portion could have stronger pigment
her long nails are dark grey and not black -- colour paling

Thanks for the replies, will just wait and see! Her talons need a trim, there’s lots of grassland around here and not much pavement to wear them down!
