I've put off asking this but figured I might as well.

So my dog is completely blonde aside from her muzzle and some of her tail. However she has been getting some new hair growth recently.

She is 1 year and about 3 months old. She is a mutt, with German Shepherd for sure. Guessing Labrador and husky for the other mixes but wouldn't be surprised to see heeler or pitbull.

So basically she's got on her back her normal blonde coat but within the last few months she has a good portion of black hairs coming through.

She's short haired but these black hairs are twice as long as her blonde coat. The hairs are either blonde at the root and black at the top, or black at the root then blonde in the middle then black on top.

Anyone have any idea what is going on? I don't know if she'll ever have a saddle but I just have never seen the black hairs before.

When she was a puppy she was a dark blonde with brown hairs but not black.

Any help or is my dog just a chameleon slowly trying to be a purebred?

Do you have some pictures you can share? I don't know anything about color changes, but your dog sounds lovely and I've love to see her. :)
