looks like a sable pup to me. Maybe a patterned sable when adult. I'm not an expert, however.

I reckon he will be sable but I'm not an expert either.

I agree with galathiel, look like sable to me as well, but it is verye early and picture does not provide details on shading.

Are you sure these are all pics of the same pup? That third pic for sure doesn't look sable, at least initially. The first two I would def say sable.

Looks sable to me. Are the parents in the pedigree database with pictures of grandparents and such to look at what colors are in the pedigree?

Doesn't really look sable to me. Markings are too distinguished. And sable is not genetically possible from black/tan and black/red parents so if he is sable there was a second father to the litter.

Can you post a photo from the side so we can see the whole body and not just the front? My initial guess would be blue dilute black/tan but based on these frontal photos it's hard to say for certain.

I'm guessing the last two pics are his siblings, and they are definitely black and red. Is there any chance one of his parents are actually a "patterned sable"? I was reading an interesting thread about sables in show lines, and the original poster refused to accept the examples of show lines sables because they look like black and reds.

Your pup looks pretty sable to me, just more of a patterned sable.
