I was also told that the grey sables start at as a dark honey color and as they mature the darker the black will come in. He has strange black tips of hair on his spine and a black ring around his tail...?

to give you an idea, here are a couple pictures of my sable. the chevron on the tail IS a typical color pattern sables go through


you can see the black ring on his tail, the chevron, in this picture. The dark color tends to spread out from there


you can see how the color spreads up the tail and back


and today at 3 years old..

Dainerra,

Those pictures of your pup are amazing....what an incredible looking pup...alert, ripped, awesome ears, head, expression and proportions. The change in colors is something I wouldn't have guessed...very interesting.

Probably will look like his mom.

If those are pee pads, just so you know, he is learning how to go in the house and then you will have a terrible time teaching him to go outside.

Her is a site that was helpful to me :

It's rare but possible, they turn out to be a golden sable or fawn. A sable GSD has to be bred with a whit GSD to produce at least one fawn puppy.

White is a masking gene. It doesn't dilute colors. Where are you getting this information?
