Kayos and Havoc Vagus I think this pups is a coatie! And very cute!

Rocket is also stunning!

Liesje Sable show lines are not all that rare or unpopular these days. The Arlett lines carry sable and there are some sable VA dogs around.

If the puppy has ear tufts it is a long stock coat.

I agree with this, we seldom have matting issues. Just when we're camping I have had to cut some burrs out, they seem to get intertwined badly..

Jag It was the 'pants' that caused all the trouble with my girl. The rest of her? Not so bad. She just matted horribly in her pants area! Nothing seemed to help. She was probably 2 before it started getting really bad.

Vagus Very good point Jag, thank you. As gorgeous as he is, I'm not sure about all that extra grooming.

It's funny, I've made an entire thread about this boy, but he isn't even my first pick! I was just wondering if its worth considering him (i.e. is he available to consider), as I'm not sure if his potential owner is happy with his coat.

Jag Rocketdog, your boy is stunning!

I thought it was odd to have a sable SL. I don't think I've ever seen one before. My bitch wasn't as long coated as Kacie, but I guess she was a stock long coat as she had an undercoat. We always referred to her as a 'plush coat' as this best described her look. She had 'pants', but her other areas weren't as long.

The pup you're speaking of is the biggest of the litter! I'd want to get my hands on that sable, but maybe just because of all the years of brushing, cutting out mattes, etc. on my bitch. Seemed like loads more work than my short coated dogs. I do miss that look, though.

RocketDog Wow-- she is gorgeous!

Any pup you get, enjoy and post lots of pics!

Vagus @Onyx: I see, that makes much more sense now, thank you. Coatie then refers to the long stock coat, yes? As for the sable - the pups' mother is a sable. I think where I live (I'm not from the US), sable popularity is increasing in the shows.

RocketDog Aww Thanks you guys. He wasn't the super fluffiest puppy, but he's actually not that long-haired now, either. If he had just some ends trimmed up, I don't think he'd look that much different than a short stock coat except for the mane-- he does have a lion's mane, LOL.
