Right now it looks like a blanket black/tan that probably inherited the black from dad.

From what I understand bi-colors have black that run down the back legs & heels ‘tar heels’, black ‘bars’ down the front of the legs, ‘pencil toes’ black markings on each paw & solid black bellies. No color can be behind the ears.

I have to figure out how to post pics on this site again. I have a 12 week old bi-color working line pup.

He’s adorable, enjoy!!

One of the fun things about young GSDs is watching what color they are today vs yesterday. Sometimes it seems like I would wake up to a different dog. I hope the OP keeps up the thread with updated photos every few weeks.

Agreed. In the young photos I undoubtedly would have speculated the outcome to be a heavily blanketed dog. However... in the updated photos (which I believe some of the recent posters may be missing), he appears to be a lovely bi color.

Even “experts” can be wrong or glance through threads too quickly :)

Are you sure that it is the OPs photos you are looking at?

I'll keep updating. The tan he had under his chin has turned sable (his dad was all sable) but I think that too may be getting ready to fade out leaving him all black except the ends of his paws. Just curious what an expert thought

Also, thanks all for commenting/replying i appreciate the info and the compliments, hes really turning into a wonderful and beautiful dog, thank you.
