Sable puppy? Mom was a fawn GSD and dad was a red sable GSD...
 
I don't think that the pup will be sable, it looks more like it'll be red when it grows up. I might be wrong and the grayish sable color will come out.

His brothers and sisters did but he was the only one that didn't.

Maybe not, if the color is washed out? I'm curious- is fawn technically a color? I was under the impression it was just washed out/poor pigmentation?

Most colors are washed out pigment. It will be interesting to watch this pup grow up. I hope you continue to post pictures.

I think the pup will just become tan/red with a silverish layer on the back. I don't see it being a full sable or much at all from the other picture.
