When you have any Breed Mix like that, anything like that can happen.

If your worried, take him to the vet. As a puppy gets older, sometimes some colors may fade away a bit.

Since it's a mixed breed, he can have either of his parents' coat color or a combination of the two.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. Puppies can change their color a LOT until they're about 1-2 years old.

My Shasta was black with tan points (like a Rottweiler, Doberman, etc.) when he was a pup. Now he is tan with a black saddle (like a GSD, Bloodhound, etc.). Very common for colors to change as they mature.

Some dogs even entirely change colors, going from black to a bluish-grey. Dalmatian pups are born pure white, then develop the black spots as they grow.
