color questions!!

We had 9 healthy beautiful pups!! almost a week old today and doing great. I do have some major questions just purely our out of curiosity and please don't judge me for wondering and that I do not have the register info on my sure, mom and dad were health and hip tested. it's only that our males previous owner lost his paperwork and cannot lead me in the direction of finding his pedigree. We have several sables sales in the litter, our sire is solid black, dam is sable. I am so curious as to what some of these pups will end up being. there are a couple that are solid black but we also have a few mostly black except for under their tail, a few strands of tan on cheeks and feet. do you know the liklihood of us having saddle pups or bicolor?

Black is recessive. Sable is dominant. However, if the sable has a less dominant trait like black, or the classic saddle back, black and tan and black and red could show up. If the sable carries black, the pups stand a 25% chance roughly of presenting it. Google coat genetics in german shepherds to explore coat dominance further.
