Black Sable, show quality?

Hi guys, I'm new to this site and I've browsed posting rules and believe I'm allowed to post such thread. If not please let me know where I should be posting!

Anyways, I have two sable GSDs. I've always assumed they were not a qualified color. But as my 5 month old eastern line shepherd is beautiful in color and structure, I've begun a little more research. According to the AKC, only white is an instant disqualification, and that rich colors are the most preferred. My female is a light sable so I know she is not of show color, however I'm having a hard time making the call on my puppy. I'm going to try and upload his picture and am looking for some opinions! Thanks in advance!
