Default What color do you call this? Do any of you have pictures that look like her?

I had a litter of puppies with my white shepherd and my friends black and tan shepherd. I bred her so we all could get us a puppy from them. The black and tan's grandmother was white so was thinking might have a white in the bunch. Well ,she had us 12 puppies which was a lot for her 1st litter and took very good care of them all. She did not have one white one but did give us 3 black, 1 tri color and the rest I don't know what to call them. I called them sable at first but the older they get (9 weeks Sat.) they white is coming out and they are loosing the black in their coat. They are looking more blonde to me now. I was wondering if anyone had a puppy that looks like ours and if you could post of the beauty they will turn into. Thank you for reading. I am new to the site am look forward to reading and learning more about the ones I love.

Maybe Fawn colored? Seems a little light colored to be a fawn though. Pups can really change colors as they grow and I don't have much experience on that since I am only now raising my first pup.

I've seen a few Fawn colored sheps on this site but haven't met one in person.

Here is a link to another Fawn.

Fawn GSD (F)

Thank you. I love the picture. I am thinking about keeping two. Just want to know what color to call her. We are also keeping a black male. He is starting to get the tan in his legs a little more as he grows.

These pups may still just be sable - sable pups change a lot during the first year, the most dramatic coat changes being in the first 4-5 months of the pup, as their puppy coat sheds out and their adult coat comes in.

I'm curious as to what your tricolor looks like, can you post a pic?

Could definitely still be sable. Here's my girl when she was a puppy. They do have a wise variation of colors though that are not "standard" if you'd like to check out K9 pines kennels out of NC they produce some wild shepherds that I adore and your puppies resemble the fox color she produces as well! Cute pups!What color do you call this? Do any of you have pictures that look like her?-imageuploadedbypg-free1407516903.903090.jpg

I don't believe you can get a sable puppy out of a white and a black and tan...

White is recessive...meaning the white dog has 2 white genes right?

Sable is dominant, so the black and tan can't carry the sable gene either.

Therefore, not possible to get a sable pup.

I'm fairly certain to get a sable...one of the parents has to be a sable.

Yes, it is possible to get a sable out of a breeding where one parent is white. White is not really a color gene, but a masking gene: dogs have the white masking gene in addition to a regular color gene, but if they inherit two copies of the white masking gene, then the white will be expressed, and hide (mask) what ever regular color gene the dog has. So a dog may be sable, but it cannot be expressed as it is being hidden by the white masking gene. The sable color gene from the white parent may still be passed on and expressed in the offspring.

Might be hard to see in the picture of her but her chest, stomach and legs had a mix of white with the tan. The picture are younger she went to he new home and as she grows I am sure the white is showing up more. I also added a picture of one of the black ones she had. One has a tan in between his toes and now starting on his legs. They are 9 weeks tomorrow. We had a variety pack. I can say they have changed a lot in their short time and can't wait to see what they grow into.
