Hey everyone, I'm new here (posted an introduction thread if anyone saw it) :] I just adopted my first GSD pup and he's a little sable baby. I've loved the breed ever since I was a little girl and always dreamed of a black & red blanket back, but this sable pup captured my heart. He's a huge sweetheart and very outgoing, but he was not quite as hyper as his littermates. Still very confident and adventurous, though! Seemed like a perfect fit for me. Meet Dallas! (He's about 5 weeks. I get to take him home during the first week of February.)



Here's a couple pictures of Dallas' dad; unfortunately, I couldn't get a good picture of his momma. She was a black & tan, with mostly dark markings. That's her in the corner of the second pic.





Anyway, to the point! (Can't help but be excited for my little man :laugh:)
For those of you that own sable dogs, I would absolutely love for you to post pictures of them. Now that I've looked more into the sables, I've fallen in love with them and am so glad that's what I ended up with. I find the way their coat changes with age & season to be absolutely fascinating!

Krystal, yes, she was very dark when we got her...then she turned into a strawberry blonde with a black stripe down her back:



And then darkened back up again.

Paula--that is one of the cutest puppy photos I have ever seen. I love her plush coat.
Thank you! Funny story...

We live in the Seattle area and Shasta's breeder is in Idaho. She was going to be coming over to visit someone in the area, so she said she'd bring Shasta over with her so we could have a look at her. We still had to drive about an hour to the rendevous point. All the way there, my husband kept saying, "Just because we're going to see her, doesn't mean we're going to bring her home."

Our 18 year old daughter was with us and she was rolling her eyes. I mean, we'd seen pictures of Shasta and you can see how cute she was. We knew there was no way we'd be going home without the puppy! So we meet the breeder, she gets Shasta out of the car and my daughter and I practically had to beat my husband off to be able to hold the puppy! And the rest is history.

We make her do it all the time on purpose...it doesn't take much.

Shasta cracks me up- even through those times when she was driving you insane, I secretly smiled! She's just too cute, which is probably all that saved her life

Christen, that second picture looks like my future! (Minus the snow, I'm in Florida. Although, I am looking to move to Colorado down the road.) Haha, I have a pom that looks almost exactly like the other dog :] Doesn't look like yours is a pom, but they sure look similar. My boy Romeo has the same strawberry blonde fur, I joke and say he's a "giant" pomeranian. I've had him since I was in 6th grade but he's still as playful as ever--I know he's going to be happy to have Dallas to run around the yard with!
