Earlier today, I saw some runners. "We are running away from the sable!" they shouted and I followed them at the fastest speed.
Long story short, if you don't like your sable puppy, I have no choice but to take it ASAP...
Back to the OP: Its important to take a dog that suits your lifestyle and comes from a good breeder.
No difference other than the color. Sables do occur more often in working lines so make sure the dogs you had before weren't show line, then there's going to be a big difference.
Kinda funny people are going on about running away from sables. My last female was gold sable, beautiful girl but she was fierce. Everyone gravitated towards her and away from my black and red boy. He's a charm but he's got those eyes...
