Jak was almost all black at 8 weeks, and at 8 months he is definitely a black/tan bi-colour, but his coat is still changing pretty dramatically, especially around the head, neck, and back thighs.

Onyx is a bi-color and I was not familiar with that, so for the first month or so, I had to wonder what she would end up like. Bi-colors generally stay the same as the puppy coat color, and she hasn't changed much at all.
Still a bitch stripeOriginally Posted By: doggiedadif a male has that stripe down it's back what's it called???
I do not know if this helps at all but one of our dogs (male GSD) has a "plushier" (is that even a wordOriginally Posted By: MandalayI have a question about their coats...when do they get the fluffy "adult" fur? I notice that some of the pups I see on here have the adult fur look and Mandalays fur is still very smooth and puppyish. The fur around her neck has gotten a little longer, but not on her stomach or back. Her tail is getting a little bit of a "fringe" to it, but not like a typical adult shepherd. Her mom and dad both had typical GSD hair (not long haired, but definitely not this "smooth collie" look).
(Mandalay will be 8 months old next week)
