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!

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.
