Help with the color please

Can someone tell me exactly what color my dog would be considered?

Re: Help with the color please

He's either a faded black and tan or possibly a gold sable. If he's a sable, his fur will have 3 colors on the same piece of fur.

My bitch has similar coloring, she's a sable - looks black and tan until you closely examine the fur

Re: Help with the color please

Was he shaved down or out of coat? The fur looks vary scarce but I would venture a b/t.

Morgan is a faded saddle black and tan. She isn't a sable.

Looking at the pictures where he had a coat he is most definitely a b/t.

Yes, he was shaved down. Don't ask. It will never be done again. His back is blacker than your female's Jen. He doesn't have the "stripe". His sire was a sable and his dam a blk/tn. He does have several colors through his fur and I am frustrated because pictures don't do him justice and show his coloring. His sadle is silver and black, as well as having a blk/red face, tan legs that are silver the top 1/4, and (when it's full) a silver neck (from ears to shoulders, all the way around). I have a pic of him I am adding in with his fur, but you can't really see the variations in his color like I wish you could.

Yes, he is definently Black and tan. Just like my Bella, same color with the gray on the back of neck. I can't fiugre out the gray but I see it all the time on this forum.

When I was a kid my parents B&T never had gray necks.

If he were sable then when he was shaved he would be all tan. The tips are black but inderneath tan, so I have seen.

Re: Help with the color please

Thank you everyone. I was always confused on his true color. The blk/tn I had growing up was a blk/tn. My boy does come from the Palme vom Wildsteiger lines on his dam's side and she and her offspring have alot of silver in them, so I think he may get it from there. I have no idea though.
