The puppy pic is the tell. Your dog is a black and tan. Very pretty dog though!

I thought he might be a patterned sable, but the puppy pic lets us know he is a black and tan for sure. Very handsome boy!

A beautiful black and tan. I had a bitch with the same silver around her neck.

" his parents both are red/tan with rich dark colours, but he started to develop grey coat along the top of his back but the saddles are still black, I am hoping he doesn't lose the black/red and tan colouring"

-- genetically impossible to be a sable then. Looks like west German Show lines -- he'll loose the black if anything . He looks like a well built , contented dog . don't worry about the colour.

Black and Tan/red west German showline. He has a lot of ticking and bleed through with his coloring so he appears almost sable in the neck and withers where pigment has been lost. He will probably lose more black as he ages and ticking will spread.

I hope he doesn't lose too much of his black on the face and saddles.

These are Buster's parents:
Esko Aus Dem Haus Zygadto (Father)
Sheprose your special Ruby (Mother)

The parents are both magnificent fine looking dogs, I looked for a long time before deciding to buy from this kennel!
