Sable dogs tend to be working lines and, while there is no disqualification, working line structure is not typical of what the "show" crowd wants. Handsome pup. The older one appears to be German Showlines. Once again not the AKC cup of tea. But it is hard to tell from such a small picture.

If you look at the critique my dog section you can pose your dog in a stack and ask opinions. What is the pedigree? You could probably get involved with schutzhund and show under SV rules but, once again, for show there, black and red is favored. A lot of us on the forum love the working lines though.
