Rebel was solid black when born except for a very small white spot on his chest. He remained that way until he was about 1 year old, then the brown hairs started appearing on his front legs, and a couple of months later, I noticed them also on his rear legs. He is now over 2 years old, and all legs are getting progressively more brown. Slowly spreading like a rash would spread. or like brown ink starting to leak through black material. Parts that were definitely black are now turning "dirty" brown.

My black gsd has bleed thru. She is tested and is indeed recessive black. She came out of a black and tan sire and sable mother. Recessive blacks need both parents to carry for recessive black to get black. Recessive black is not like sable, where one parent HAS to be sable to get sable. Sable is dominant. You can go to ddc vet dna center and test dogs for color and colors they carry. So no need to guess. :)

I was also able to test and see if she carried for coat.
