coat color. Help?

Hello, i am new to this forum. I need help determining what color my GSD is and what he might look like when he gets older. I know its hard for anyone to tell right now because hes so young, i just want an educated guess. This is my baby boy Kaiser. He just turned 11 weeks old. Any help will be greatly appreciated

He looks like a typical Sable to me. What do mom and dad look like?

Dottie

Be a responsible pet owner, leave the breeding to the experts.

I thought sable also but just wanted a second opinion from other German Shepherd owners . The Sire is the one in the first picture, Dam is in the second ,

Sable like the mother. Look back at the sire's pedigree, he has a very similar look to my male who has 2 sable grandparents although his parents are both black and red.

Edit to add: he's wicked cute with his huge feet and those ears

Thank you. I think hes pretty cute myself. The sires pedigree has mostly black and tan. Don't sables go through a dark to light phase? or light to dark?
