Sire to this litter is Liver and the Dam is bi color. First time breeding this pairing, or Liver in general. Is this normal for Liver?

Liver dogs' noses are usually liver (brown) rather than black OR pink. Have not had the pleasure (?) of seeing a young Liver litter or part-litter, so I for one cannot tell you for definite that they will turn brown eventually. Personally I have never seen any purebred GSD pups, no matter what the colours, with such poor pigmentation that they have entirely 'pink' noses - even Whites have mottled brown or black on the pink nose if they have it. Some older animals get faded pigment that is variable, as in 'summer nose', 'winter nose' and so on. OTOH it depends how early you are talking about - some normal, darkly coloured puppies have pinkish noses when first seen 'in the nest' but that usually does not last for more than a couple of days before it darkens.

They are 2 days old. The noses aren't completely pink, they do have black/brownish spots and/or dark noses with a pink center.

Hi, If you end up with any liver females, please let me know. Would love to have one. What are the bloodlines?

So give it another couple of days, OP, and you should see them change.
