Anyone have a sable like mine? Adult photos?

Hey all!
New to the forum membership wise, but been creepin around for awhile 😜
Apologies for the long winded-ness!
I recently got my boy a week ago and I am all sorts of confused on his color. I know there’s a bazillion threads on sables, and I swear I’ve combed them all and can’t quite find one like my guy. He’s for sure a purebred, awesome breeder, got him for potential SAR work or other competitive canine sports. I know no dog is a bad color, but we’d been hoping for a dark sable with that solid DDR build.
Sire is dark sable, DDR lines all the way back. Dam is DDR on her Dams side, with a splash of WGSL way back. On her sires side she’s got WGSL. She’s a blanket black and red.
I’ve been reading that when you cross a blk/red (or tan) with a sable, you often get a patterned sable. Is this true? Nothing against a lovely patterned sable, but was so hoping for just a non patterned sable. His parents have great pigment, but I didn’t realize there was even such a thing as patterned sable until after I got him. (Facepalm.)
Any guesses on him? I know sables go crazy with their changes. Just looking for thoughts. Thanks and please share your photos of puppy to adult sables!

I’ve attached photos of when he was born, 5 1/2 weeks, and now. Thanks so much for any input!

I think he might end up similar to his sire, but maybe not quite as dark.

Here are some pics of my boy at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and now

In the newborn litter photo it looks like 2 blacks, 1 (maybe 2) dark sables, and 3 (maybe 4) patterned sables. OP your pup looks like a patterned sable to me and I’d bet on him looking more like Kaiser’s dog in the replies.....not his sire. All those light points are a give away. Also looks like he’s inherited his mom’s coat.

Thanks everyone-and GORGEOUS dogs all around here. I just can’t get over the changes they go through, I never get sick of looking at the photos of them growing up. And yes there were two black pups and 5 sables. We were going off of temperament for what we wanted first and we’ll love him no matter how he turns out 🙂

Oh my goodness what an adorable little rolly poly you have there! I cannot help in terms of adult photos or much advice on how genetics work, BUT my pup is very similar to yours! His sire is a black and red WGSL and dam a sable Czech/DDR. He is colored similarly currently at eleven weeks

Thanks for the reply Fodder-I was trying to do this on my phone and the layout wasn't letting me reply directly but now I can! So a couple questions (I swear there is so much terminology and different this and that with color and pattern etc. I don't think i'll ever get it down!)


1. Is it possible to cross a blk/red or blk/tan with a sable and NOT get a patterned sable?

2. What would you call his dams coat? I know that coat length can vary quite a bit, especially in working lines, but would you call her a long hair, stock or otherwise? Or is she just "feathered" so to speak? Huck definitely has some ear floof that makes me think you're right about him getting her coat.

3. Just to clarify when you said he inherited her coat, you were referring to length, and not color, correct?

Thank you so much! I also don't know how you stand waiting to see how they turn out...part of the fun i guess!
