Type of coat. The hairs are banded. Our pup ranger has three different colors on a single hair strand. I believe it is the dominant color for gsds or maybe that's just working lines.....hmmm maybe someone else can answer on that.

can tell in those pictures. Can you post pictures of her closer and full bodied from the side?

as for what is sable, sable is a dominant coloration in GSDs. As said above, the hairs are banded. Usually a lighter color closer to the body with dark tips on the end.

^ No, my Nikon is getting more bleed through as he ages and has the same thing, but he's not a sable. His parents were both black and tan/red. The dog can't become a sable, they either are or aren't.

Maggie is Black and Tan. The patterning you see down her neck/back is called a bitch stripe and is very common in West German Show lines. Think of it as greying. ;)
