What would this pups colour be classified as? and does anyone have a similiar colour and have pics from puppy to adult? I am curious how much he will lighten up as he gets older and if he will keep his "mask" or not. Anyone know? :) I can't even look up google images cuz I'm not sure what to call his colour

I'm going to guess a black masked wolf sable with white markings.

Red Fawn Sable. A lot of the black will fade as he grows. But only time will tell how much it will fade. He may keep a hint of the mask.

Cute boy! Congrats Tracilea! :)

PS, I would LOVE a long hair but Rosa has long hair and I find I don't really have the time for all the grooming that needs to be done so we mostly keep her hair cut short. Maybe a long hair is in the cards for me when the kids get older and I have a bit more free time for brushing, or even when they are old enough to help me do it properly :)

He will have to surprise me lol It will be an adventure to find out what he will look like hehehehe
The breeder is going to be sending me some pics every week so I can watch him growing :)
She is almost 2 hours away so its too long of a trip to make for a small visit lol

Rico's sabling has moved a bit --the mark when he was most black with the sabling has shifted from the top of his head to just under the shoulders--as he grew. The white markings grew larger and over all I think he is lighter than he was as a wee babe. He had a brother who was all sable.

my lil guy does have a patch of white on his chest so he must be a tri too?
I think it would be kinda neat if he were to keep the black mask on is face.
I am still searching for a name lol I made a list today. I am stuck on Peanut though, BUT not everyone likes Peanut. Cujo is also another name that seems to be popular around my house lol. I will have to see. We did not have a serious name talk though, so we'll see lol I like Monkey too. My daughter has Curious George PJ's and the face reminds me of the puppy lol So thats where monkey comes from lol
