Working line or Show line?
 
hello, I recently got a puppy who (obviously) is not registered. Unfortunately that leaves us with the question, what lineage might he be (or MOSTLY be)?

We DO have a working line here at home (DDR) who's stack does not match his. I'd say stamina as well, but he's a puppy & they're always tired lol.

Here, you know what I'll let you guys do the talking. I have the picture of him below :P

Thanks guys!

He could be a patterned sable though, right? Or are they lighter? Which then in turn would mean he could be either lol!

his back slopes but you dont have him stacked to see it more
where did the pup come from and do you have info on his parents?

When he's older you'll know. If he's a patterned sable, I believe they are both (WL & SL) but if he's simply sable chances are he's WL...

Many American show lines are not all that sloping in the back. I think he looks like them.
