in the winter time coats are said to be darker while in summer they tend to get lighter.
that is in the wolf however so I am not sure if the same goes for the dog.

How old is the pup? How long have you had him? What food is he on? Any recent changes in diet or major changes in the weather where you are?

Omega fatty acids can help with shedding as an regularly brushing with a rubber curry to stimulate the natural oils in the skin and get rid of loose fur.

Some dogs can start to change color a bit as they mature. Also if it is getting warm in your area you dog could be blowing the winter coat and getting in the summer coat. I know here we went from below freezing to over 65 degrees in a few weeks and my dogs are blowing coat right now.

Theresa (patch o pits) posted a great post too!

Some dogs lighten as they age. Some darken. My girl Terra has lightened from a darker red to a more fawn color.

Your dog is a seal color, black but with red undertones it can show up as the dog matures.
Look at this color chart by the ADBA if you look at the black dogs close to the bottom you will see they are called "seal", that is a dog who looks like yours. Again black with red or brown undertones.
American Dog Breeders Association

It has nothing to do with the food your feeding but IMO I would switch foods. Pedigree is a low quality kibble. You do not have to break the bank with a fancy dog food, there are plenty of good foods for a fair price.

Some dogs will also "bleach" if they spend too much time in the sun. Like people.
