Coat Color

I have a 14 week old Shih Tzu that has light brown pads, nose and lips. The coat is mostly golden with some white predominantly on the chest, a dark brown mask and hazel eyes. According to what I've been reading he would be considered a liver dog. I have, however, noticed some black hairs growing along the back coat. If it is genetically impossible for a liver dog to have any black, then what explanation would there be for this?
