How can you tell what color they will be?

Just curious....can anyone tell by looking at the pups now what color they will end up being? The dam is a saddle back, the sire is a black sable. Any input appreciated!

Im going to try and post a pic of the puppies

Either post pictures of the specific puppy you're looking at or just ask the breeder.

It's kind of hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like you've got a pretty healthy mix of colors in there (some sables, possible bi's, black and tans).

I see a sable or 2, a black, 2 b&T and one that I can't tell at all. BUT, that's just a glance and I'm not an expert. It'd be better to have full body shots and of course the breeder should be able to tell you.

Is that your thinking from left to right? I know the breeder will be able to tell me. We are going to visit tomorrow morning. I'm just wayyyyy excited and anxious and trying to get as much info as I can ahead of time. Not that color truly matters, making sure he fits with us is most important!
