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.

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.
