Could she actually be a bi-color?

OK, the older Leyna gets, the more tan she is getting on her body. She was completely black when I got her. Tell me what you think from some of the pics of her tan coloration.

She has tan "tarheels". They go up the back of both front legs starting at the back of the paw to her elbow.








She also has tan starting on her back legs.






She also has tan between all of her toes, front and back.



I am just wondering because I know GSD pups can change so much. Is it just possible for her to be a very dark bi?

Personally I think you have a very black dog with a little tan but not BICOLOR. HOW OLD IS SHE?

Thanks.

She is a very dark black everywhere else. She also has very dark eyes to go with it. I will get some stacked pics this weekend of her.

I was just curious though because she just started getting the tan a few weeks ago. I didn't know if it may be because it's winter or if it's because she now actually has her adult fur or what. She will be 7 months on the 16th.

Does she have tan around her anus under her tail?

If not, she is likely a black dog with bleed through.

She has started to get a little tan around the anus as well as the inner portion of her thighs. I just didn't want to post pics of the areas. lol Trying to give my baby a little modesty.

https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...-patterns.html Have you read this thread? It has some good information on blacks vs. bicolor. I'm sure there are others if you search.

Is she from a breeder? What did they say she was?

I thought Brody was a bi color as well...turns out everyone thinks hes a melanistic black and tan...I agree after looking at pictures! There coats change so much while they are a puppy so its hard to tell sometimes!

She is officially listed and registered as a black. And she was....until a few weeks ago. I don't know if it may be because she now has her adult coat...or if it is from the winter coat..or if she is just showing tan and will keep it.

More because I am curious than anything else.

I would also say she is a black with bleed thru. Are there any Bi's in her pedigree? If not then black would be her color for certain.
