I was just reading another post and I don't know what these terms mean. I think Ranger is a saddle back, but I am not sure. Don't know how to upload pics so I can't share, but maybe you guys could describe and direct me to pics of each thing?

Thanks

A blanket back is a black/tan whose "saddle" extends down the legs. Jax is a blanket back.



A saddle back looks like they have a saddle on their back.



Tar heels are black heels typically seen on sables and bi-colors.

How old is Ranger? Often puppies will look like blanket backs or even bi-colors, but as they progress through their first year, they lighten into a saddle. There is also a patterned sable which looks like a black and tan, but actually is a sable.

Thanks for the picture details they are a very clear picture of what the difference is :) I had the same question about my boy Argos but was told he was probably a blanket back.
