cowgirlup_22 Thanks guys. I LOVE sables and was more than happy to jump at the chance to snag this cutie up(got him for free). He is extremely smart with a good nose and strong bite. I'm hoping to get him into something in the future..Just not sure exactly

zyppi Good looking dog, and I see that he has already taken control. Good boy!!

Castlemaid Beautiful dog, congrats! But you are right, he is a regular sable. Black sables look solid black, and it takes a good eye to actually be able to tell that they are sable.

Eiros I'm not too well versed on the different terms given to sables but I think the term black sable is given to a dog that looks black or almost black but is actually a sable. The terms aren't definitive, but that's what I would consider a black sable. PS your dog is gorgeous!!

Question on coat color

Hey all. Been quite a while since I have been on here but I am glad to be back. We just got a new addition to our family on March 15th,a handsome 1 1/2yr old AKC registered sable male. I'm not very smart when it comes to trying to figure out what kind of sable he is and was told he is a black sable. However when I googled black sable(haven't seen one before so I thought I would look it up) I couldn't find one that came close to looking like him.. Unless I skimmed past it.. So I thought I would ask you all your opinions. Here are a couple pics I managed to get on the rare occasions he held
