Just watched two trainers get into a disagreement about what color my pup Apollo is..I don't particularly care, but now I'm curious! His papers say black/tan, but maybe that's wrong? He just turned 6 months, if it helps. Thanks! :) ImageUploadedByPG Free1405281016.422349.jpg ImageUploadedByPG Free1405281031.410519.jpg

Pretty much means the dogs expresses the pattern of a Black and Tan. , tan legs with a saddle or blanket, but instead of black saddle or blanket it's sable.

The only way to know for sure is too look at her as a puppy.

Look at the progression. True Black and Tans have the color on their backs throughout growth. Sables will get very light on their back. And then darker as they get older. So post pics at 8,12,16 and. 20 weeks and we will have a better idea

Thank you! He has made life since March very hairy, slobbery, interesting & absolutely worth every moment. I never knew a dog could be so brilliant!
