Anyone have a sable like mine? Adult photos?
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!
