This is my best bud Rogue! He’s almost 17 weeks. When we got him he was super dark, then lightened up losing all of his black except his snout and then turned this color. My question is should I expect him to be more Black and Tan, dark sable, or patterned sable? Mom is dark sable Dad is patterned sable.

My guess is that you'll end up with a patterned sable, but that's only a guess based on pictures. Who really knows? :)

If you have a picture of him at about a day old, you'll get a good idea of how dark he will be. His markings will change back and forth until he's a couple years old.

He’s sable... as far as being a pattered sable or not - I’m not entirely sure but leaning in that direction with my guess based on the most current photo (vehicle).

This is the youngest I have of him. 7 weeks. Breeder says he was almost all black when he was born.
