Question Breeder May Have Gotten My Puppy's Color Wrong?

Soo everbody knows a couple days ago I got Dakoda, my baby girl gsd. Her breeder said that she was sable, just like her brother. But looking at her now I think he may have been wrong. I think she looks like a black and silver more than sable. What do you guys think? I just don't want to be calling her the wrong color lol!

Dokoda looks like an adorable black and tan, not a sable.
Do you have any pics of her littermates, or brother?
Sable pups have a stripe down the back, a black tailspot. There are differences in their darkness according to their lines.


Then they darken at coat change, about 4 mos.

Not sure the difference between black and cream and black and silver, but i voted black and cream because that's what she is. Black and tan is a possibility. Definitely not a sable.

I'd take out the black and silver option since it's pretty much the same as black and cream.

I think black and silver is a bit more greyish tint to it than cream, or that's what it looks like to me. I do have a pic of her brother below, I know he was sable. But the breeder said she was too and she just doesn't look it to me lol. Her other littermates were all pure white.

Her brother is definitely a sable. I'm 99.9% sure she's not. I can't say 100% because anything is possible, but i think it's pretty safe to say she's a black/tan or black/cream.

I agree with you on that. The reason I put black & silver is because she has some grey/silver coloring where her tan is, too. And lots of silver speckling on the black fur around her stomach, neck, legs and face.

Are you taking the pictures with a cell phone? The pictures arent the best quality with the best lighting. Maybe you can provide some better quality pictures? From the ones you provided, i'm not seeing sable.

Look at the pictures onyx girl posted. That's what a silver sable puppy loves like. Your pup has the typical black coat with the cream paws. Typical for a black/tan or black/cream.

What is the sire & dams coloring? Do you have their pedigrees/ was this just a BYB type breeding?

Ya I only have my cell phone camera sorry!! I would say backyard breeder type, she'd never been inside before I got her. Dad is 110 lb black and tan, mom is 90 lb pure white. Dad's mom is pure black, dad is sable. Mom's dam is pure white and her dad was black. The guy had 3 generations back at his home from both sides. Most of them were pure black or white, the dad was the only black and tan and his sire was the only adult sable. I'll try to get some better pics as soon as I get a camera lol. I don't think she's sable. At all! She's just a bit light to be black and TAN and the grey on her markings and face are throwing me off a bit. Lol, that's where I got silver from. I was also looking at this website http://www.kerstoneshepherds.net/colors/colors.htm to figure out her color.

So which dog is the one in the background that looks to be nursing pups? I thought that was the mother of the sable and your pup? Did the breeder have more than one litter on the ground?
