I bought a German Shepherd female a few months ago when she was 7 months old and she was Black and dark Red, and now she is 19 mo. and her color has change from dark red to a light red or dark tan, is this normal or has something to do with the food or something else?
She is pure German Shepherd. Akc Reg.

exactly what you are getting until after the full 'adult' coat has come through.
Not at all surprising that she was a deeper red at 7 mths than she is now. She will
have been even deeper red as a baby puppy. BTW it tends to change again when
they start to get old, she may pale out a lot by the time she is 7 yrs or so.

I kept two pups from my first litter, the male had a lovely rich golden tan color and the female was a typical WGS red when they were puppies. Now they are adults, the male is a very rich intense red color and the female is a reddish tan color. So the male darkened and the female lightened.

conformaiton line puppies are born almost all black, as they mature the black withdraws and red/orange/tan replace until they get the typical pattern.
when shedding, their color fades a bit until the new coat comes in.

what happened here .
I like Olewo; have used / seen it used quite a lot; can't say I ever noticed it
creating all that much difference in colour, maybe a little.
