He looks black and red to me. 70 lbs is within breed standard for a male. I think he is pretty much done growing. Good looking boy-you must be pleased with him.

I think it's the lighting that makes him look red, it looks like they were taken at sunset.

Did you photoshop or edit those pictures at all? He looks black and red in the pictures, but they look edited except the last one where he looks more black and tan.

Just asking... they just seem a little off (the pictures, not your dog).

What lines is he from? Do you have a picture of mom and dad? How big were they?

Yeah... looks like a mix of lines on the sires side with the dam being american. Some of the sires info incomplete, so you're missing that part of the pedigree too.

Typically, when you're talking about black and reds, that mostly applies to the west german show lines. The american lines are mosly black and tan, but also may be sable, black, and also white too, but not usually black and red. There is some west german show line in the sires pedigree, but not a whole lot.

He's actually cream colored (light tan) underneath which indicates more of a black/tan coloration than black/red.
As others stated, two of the pics look like they were color enhanced (even the grass looks red) while the 3rd doesn't have as much red going on and the dog's true color is more of a tan.

If you adjust the white balance on your camera, you can get a more accurate representation. Since the grass and trees have a orange/red hue in all three photos- the white balance is not correct making the dog appear more red.
