Ken Clean-Air System Probably will be a saddle patterned black and tan with so much color showing already at 4 months. A blanket pattern black and tan is possible, but I would guess she will continue to lighten to a saddle pattern though.

wolfstraum Your pup is black and tan, not far as a saddle, look at your pup's parents - if they were tan with black saddles, that is what she will be....pups with that pattern are born mostly black and the tan comes through quickly -

NancyJ Sounds like a normal black and tan. Some lines (show lines) the normal black and tan will have what is called a "bitch stripe" which is sable hairs down the spine in a stripe.

Ironically, my sables (not sure this is true of all sables) have had a solid black stripe down the spine as puppies that persisted through adulthood.

Sable, saddle...not sure??

Hi all,

My baby girl Koda is coming up on 4 months and her colours are starting to change. When we first brought her home she had a very blonde/tan chest, belly and hind legs. Her back and tail were pure black. Her blonde is now moving up her shoulders and hind legs, so I was thinking saddle but she is getting colour underneath the black on her back as well. She's confusing me! I've put a pic of her up, just wondering if anyone could take a guess at what she is/will be? Thanks
