Pretty much the day they're born.

Actually before they're born for the most part. Depends on the parents of the puppy. Black and reds typically produce black and reds. Sables typically produce sables and all blacks.

You can tell immediately. In fact it's way easier to tell with newborns. Newborn black and reds are basically black.

;) Thanks everyone! I have seen pups that are closer to 5-6 weeks that were I would have sworn were black/tan and ended up sable, but now I see how much easier it is to tell the difference. A friend of ours had a single puppy, born naturally ( no c-section, one was confirmed by xray), and it was black and red, but SUPER red, and lots of it! Had me thinking...
