Hi i recently got a Black Puppy German Sheperd.

Hes all Black.

However i noticed his father got a Brown/Black fur as he got older.

Someone stated that the color of the fur Changed due to diet as they get older.

Is anyone got a Black German shepperd , what should i feed him so he keep his all black fur and dont turn brown/black.

Someone stated Raw Eggs should help with the fur color black.

The father is sable, not black. Sable puppies can look pretty dark when they are first born, but go through a few color changes (light, dark, light, dark, etc) during their first year as their puppy coat grows out and their final adult coat comes in. That is completely normal for a sable, and is not caused by diet.

The two puppies in the picture do look solid black, so they are not going to change color. Some solid blacks get a bit of brown on their legs as they mature; that is called bleed-through, but it is a factor of genetics, and not diet.
