That's what I think as well--either black or bicolor. I have noticed darker sables tend to come from crossing a sable to a bicolor or black, as opposed to a black & tan saddleback. The latter usually produces saddle-patterned sables without pencil toes and tarheels.

Halo has the striping on her front legs and penciling on her feet, (although both have faded quite a bit since when she was a puppy), but not tar heels. Her dam is sable and her sire is a solid black.

This is at 5 months old:



And 3-1/2 years old:



She has a lot more hair between her toes than she used to, so it's hard to see that there's still a bit of dark striping on them.

That puppy looks blue. It's not sable. Yes the blue and tan is pretty rare.

the show judges must be drunk on brandy to not prefer the sables and longhairs. My girl has very dark sable characteristics, big pencil toes, and I havent thought of looking for a tar heel. But I know she is the prettiest pup ever. And btw, about half the pups who I have seen claimed sable are not, theres a bunch of saddleback or blanket owners claiming sable???
