Is his color too yellow?

Hi there,

My friend is getting a sable puppy. Don't have his photos for now. But he is 8 month old and has the same color as the puppy on these photos:

My question is, is his color too yellow for a sable? What his color would like when he's fully grown? Much darker or something? His father is a red and black sable, mom is a tan sable.

Thanks!

---------------

Sorry for bothering! I've got the answer.

Thanks,

Re: Is his color too yellow?

Sable puppies go through a lot of color changes as they grow up. This thread showcases a multitude of sable pups and how their coats varied over the months: https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...1&nt=6&fpart=1 Hopefully, it will give you a good idea of what to expect as the pup ages.

Re: Is his color too yellow?

Sable puppies are usually at their lightest right before their adult coat comes in...around 8-12 weeks. If your friends dog is 8 months old, the adult coat should already be in. While there are still color changes in the coat until about 2 years of age, it's usually not as significant. So, if your friends dog is 8 months old and still that light, it may not have much black pigment.

I got it. Didn't know 8-12 weeks is their lightest age. Good to know that!
Thanks!
