If she were sable, the undercoat would be a beige/red colour underneath the saddle patterned sable hairs. So the pic where you show the close up near the shoulder, the undercoat is solid black right up to the skin. Thus, Black and tan.
Thanks Castlemaid. A very good description to id B&T vs sable. The stripe on my dog's back gets more pronounced as he gets older. I never had a dog with a white stripe before and wasn't sure how to describe it.

Ok I've got another pic and her hair is redish? It's just further down her back (as you can see)

Is there a way to choose a puppy that will be sable but not patterned sable? I'm guessing seeing the parents will help?

Not sure. I own a patterned sable male and he looked like a normal sable pup to me. I didn't really choose for color, and I didn't get him until he was 5 months. Maybe others (with more experience than me) would know better ways to identify one as a pup.

Your girl and boy are just gorgeous! When we get a sable pup I'd want him to look more like your girl. I guess I'd have to look at the parents and ask the breeders what they think. I love all the colours sables go through
