We have pick of the litter and picked out a darker colored male, the litter is part solid black and part sable, this being one of the 3 sables.

He is darker than the other sable pups but still you can tell he is not solid black...anyone have input on what his coat color will likely be?

He is the darker of the two in the photos below. These are current one week old photos.

Thanks!

The rule of thumb I've been told is that the color they are at birth is the the color they'll be as an adult. But they are sables. They change daily for the first year!

I have removed all of the bickering and OT comments. The OP asked a simple question. Answer the question or move on please.

Thanks all,

I will keep updating as he matures if this is the pup we end up with...

If its true that the color they are born with is what they will "grow" into he should be pretty dark or black sable.

Hard to tell what his undercoat will be..maybe reddish?

Ah!! That's interesting! I've always wondered! When I got Jade, I told the breeder I wanted either sable or black and tan since she had 1 female of each in that litter. I really wanted sable, but when it came down to the final decision, the black and tan better matched my needs. I'm happy and I still drool over sables. :grin2:
