Those are pictures of the sire and the pup is my boy, “Ace” I know the qualities of the photos are not great. Is anyone else seeing anything besides black?
I really appreciate all of the feedback!

The back of his back legs are also getting lots of gray hairs. This is so interesting.

Might be a super dark bicolor pup. One of the parents is super dark and looks to be carrying a bicolor recessive. May I see UNDER his tail? And front legs, please.

Sure! I will get a pic when I get a chance this evening. His front legs are completely black, under tail has gray, silver, black and white.

Thanks. In the one pic, there looked to be a hint of tan at the pastern, which would indicate bicolor. Like I said, the one parent looks to me to carry for bi and the other for black. You could possibly have a very very dark bicolor. One of my stud dogs just produced a pup who looks all black except just a bit of tan behind her pasterns which increases with age.

It is even possible for 'bi-colour' to exist where the pigment really isn't super-good; I just did an online jigsaw featuring a long coat GSD which has silver, rather than tan or gold, on its lower limbs... and yet a stunning, completely black head / face, no 'eyebrow' patches, or ears or muzzle shading at all. Unfortunately it is sitting down. Would love to get a look at the tail end.

Not to beat a dead horse but... he has white/gray hairs shooting up on his forehead and cheeks.. I’m trying to get pics but he won’t stay still. What the heck?! I already put him as black on his paperwork. ☹️
