Hunter
Was a blanket back like his mother, but now at 5 months we are seeing brown hairs coming through and he is starting to look like his sable dad.
Very interesting to watch the change almost daily.

Hunter is Black and Tan, and if he's starting to get more tan in, chances are he'll be a saddle patterned black and tan!

It really is amazing how they change! Handsome puppy.

A black and tan is born a black and tan, they can not change to sable as they age. He will likely just be a lighter black and tan saddle back, not a blanket back.

Mine is like most of the others. Started out dark black and tan with a lot of black .... became saddle back. And the saddle is not very big. Wide gray stripe down her back. You can see in her album. Had hoped the black would stay but she gets compliments every day on her appearance.

Yep same same. Karma is around 17 weeks now and yesterday I suddenly realised there is tan creeping into her previously jet black face and also through her flanks etc.
