I'd call that a dark sable. IMO not near a black sable. His coat looks a lot like Pan's (Pan maybe darker on the body but not as dark/full black mask on the face) and I just refer to Pan as "sable".

I would consider him just a "sable," maybe - maybe - a dark sable. But to my eye, he isn't that dark. Black sables are so dark they look almost black, thus the name. I don't see any red to consider him a red sable.

How old is he? Is that his birthdate in your signature? He will continue to darken, but right now I would just call him sable. Nice dark face.
