Callie is 10 months old. Pedigree shepherd, her mum was black and tan with the saddle her dad pure black, both registered with the AKC. Callie has sabling underneath her black but looks predominantly black with tan points and a bit of grey sabling on her shoulders and neck...will she fade any more? Thanks

It's not sabling...just fading color. If it's along her back it's called bitch stripe.

Are you sure you mean saddled sables, and you didn't just own faded black and tans?

For example, what color is this boy:


And what color is this boy:


Your bitch LOOKS like a Bicolor...but I can't tell since she's not standing up

Your Shepherd is marked very similar to my dog (he is a mix), which further inclines me to think he has some shepherd in him.
(Silly picture, but you can see all of his tan points pretty good in it)





She is a gorgeous dog, BTW! I love black/tan shepherds.

Yeah, that seems to be the general consensus on him. He has all the classic markings, but now that he has gotten older his tail has gotten very full, just like a Shepherd's tail. We're still not sure where the curly ears came from... they seem to get curlier the older he gets!

(Sorry I jacked your thread GSDGAL! :eek: )

Your Shepherd is a bi-color with some unusual faults (the tan markings above the eyes, on the neck and tops of the fromt legs)

JMP, the dog's color is NOT faulted in anyway. That's a normal bi color.

Yeah... I'm no shepherd expert, but even I knew that it wasn't a fault. I had a long haired shepherd that was bi-color like that. She also had a clef pallet... (she was my heart dog)
