Bicolor or Black Tan

This is Duke and I want your guy's opinion on what color he is. His mom is all black and his dad was a black and cream color or even tri color. What do you guys think Duke is? Thanks...

How old is Duke? He looks like a Bi-color.

BTW, no such color as tri-color in GSD.

He is about 5 months old and the breeder was calling the father of Duke tri-color for some reason.I never even heard of that before until then.

Looks Bi Color to me.

Edit: Side note, Bi Color is technically black and tan. Bi Color is a pattern, just like saddleback and sable.

Penciled toes so my guess is bicolor.

Assuming by tri-color they probably mean sable? Either way, he definitely looks to be bi-color. The color gene would have had to come from the father. The mother would only have a black gene to contribute, and each parent contributes one color gene.
