Your female has such beautiful colorings. Its hard to tell when they are so small but you can see a lot of light colors coming through their black puppy coat. They are super adorable no matter what Good luck with them!

Your female is a liver (is she purebred?) bred to a sable. So what color are the puppies?

The mom makes Lassie pop out in my mind. Don’t remember what breed she was though.

Your male is GORGEOUS!

No clue on coloring, I haven’t the brain power to learn all the coat colors and possible coats for pups. I don’t breed, so I just enjoy my guys and don’t worry about what color other peoples litters are, because all pups are adorable no matter the color!

From what I think I understand, liver is recessive, so if the male carries liver, some of the pups may end up liver, like the dam. She also appears to be a longcoat to me, so if the male also carries that gene, some of the pups could end up with long hair too. I guess we will see!

Others will let me know if I got anything incorrect.

My guess is that they will have four legs and probably tails. Most will likely resemble dogs.

Mom is a liver and tan long coat.

Dad is a patterned sable short stock coat.

Dad would need to carry a liver gene to produce any livers, or a long coat gene to produce any long coats.

Puppies appear to be: 5 (3?) Black and Tan - likely to get moms pattern but not her liver coloring. The 2 (4?) sables will most likely be patterned like dad.

Coats all look to be short stock coats so far. The darker sable pup MIGHT be a long coat (wavy head), too soon to tell.

Ps. Lassie was a rough collie
sit,stay and Sunsilver like this.

TILDEN: Male: Blk/Red LHGSD: DOB: 12/24/06 65lbs of Love
KEYSTONE: Male: Sable: DOB: 2/11/13 55lbs of Go!!!!!

My first GSD had been named Lassie by her owner. He had to give her up when he went into a nursing home.

Having grown up with the Lassie TV series, I had to rename her. I called her Lili Marlene, after the famous WWII song. A German name for a German dog, and I figured Lili sounded enough like Lassie that the change wouldn't be difficult!

Yes, long coat and liver genes are both recessive, so pups will all be stock coat and sable or black and tan, unless Dad carries those genes.

Sable is dominant over black and tan, so if some pups have the black and tan pattern like Mom, the father must carry for black and tan. If he were homozygous for the sable gene, he would only produce sable pups.
