I can identify an "obvious" sable. Can someone tell me how to identify a patterned sable.
When we got our pup I thought she was a sable at 7 weeks. Then I was told she was a black and tan. She is a blanket back at 10.5 mo. But she has areas that to me look sable. I know you can't have a "part" sable.
Is she a blank and tan or is she really a patterned sable?
These pictures are a little over a month old. Her thigh area is getting lighter.
Her sire was all black. Her dame was what I thought to be a poorly colored silver/black. Maybe the dame was a patterned sable?
Thanks for your input
