Default What color is sable???

Okay, I talked to my breeder today (some of you know very well that I have been desperatly searching for a sister for Sophie), and she has a female that will be available in February. She has several other litters due soon too. Anyway, she tells me this puppy is a fawn/sable. Sophie is a Cream/Blue. What is a fawn/sable??? I am not even sure what that looks like. I know fawns are usually light brown or cream, and usually have black noses, but what does sable mean? I looked for pictures of sable chis online, and they all seem to be black. I am confused. If anyone has pics of a fawn/sable or just sable chi, please post!

the black usually fades and turns to a lighter shade with age if its a fawn sable she will probably be mostly fawn but could still show some light sabling later on i hope you find sophie a sister soon. puppies are so much fun

Think of the sable part as long black hairs mixed in with the original color, in this case fawn. It seems younger pups have more sable which fades to varying degrees as they age. Tucker was born looking almost black, he now has more red but there are still some easily visible sable hairs as well as definite black ring on his tail. His mother was born the same and you can now see NO sabling on her. On the other hand, the sabling can remain quite thick and not fade out so much.
