Good Afternoon,

We are interested in buying a GSD Sable Puppy - we have our eyes on this little guy: Do you imagine he will stay dark sable? Any thoughts? We currently have a beautiful 2 year old Shepherd (black + tan) we have just been wanting to get a sable to add to the mix. i know their coats change so much - if you have had a sable puppy feel free to share puppy pictures :)

Warm Regards,

Look at the parents and the newborn photos.... no way to tell from these pics. Not to mention “dark sable” is subjective.

Good Morning,

So The First two are the pup's mother & father the last two are the puppies grandparents on the mother side only. I do know it is completely subjective and they change so much I am just curious is all.

Warm Regards,

Both the father and maternal grandfather are very similar in color... it’ll take a bit over a year, but I suspect she will turn out within the same color range. I would not consider either of the males dark, simply sable.

Haha thank! I am very excited to bring the little guy home - we have been looking for a sable so hopefully he stays a similar colour.

If your pup keeps the Tar Heels, pin stripes on toes and stripe down the front legs most likely it will be a darker sable. Dark black patches on chest and under belly to me a sign they will be dark. They say when your pup is born that will be his color they change so much after that. Max dam a bicolor and his sire a patterned sable. He is a dark sable. He is asl. His color is pretty much the same as a year old but he can lighten and darken with the lighting and seasons coat blowing and all. Right now he is shedding massively and at his lightest. 4 weeks to 4 years .
