Welcome to this forum Josh, wife and Bear. Noticed a rural type background in your pic. Do you mind me asking where you are from? We are from Central California. Bear is a nice looking dog, and I agree with JAKO, he does look like he might be blue or even a silver. My black female is almost a year and a half, she had one white parent and one black parent. I have noticed a few white hairs coming in here and there throughout her coat recently, am wondering if she is going to change color also.
