Sable German Shepherds are best known for those characteristic multi-colored individual hairs, though they may be masked by dark or black guard hairs too. The banding of color on each and every individual hair leads to a variety of shades and colors which can vary extremely from sable dog to sable dog. Agouti (the correct term for Sable) is the genetically dominating pattern in the entire German Shepherd Dog breed. If a dog has this gene present, it will be sable in color.
Sables tend to get darker with age - especially over their back. While they are born solid black they soon become all tan in color. The characteristic black tipping starts coming in after a few weeks of age and then continues until the puppy is a few years old. Sable puppies color changes immensely as they grow up. Oftentimes the German Shepherd puppy will end up either darker or lighter than they were as a small puppy. Sable German Shepherds keep developing their final color up until the dog reaches the age of three (or so) - so you'll never really know what the final color of sable German Shepherds will really be until the dog is completely mature.
These dogs may appear in many shades of silver, gray, gold or mahogany colors. Most fall somewhere in between these extremes. Often times they also have the dark mask as well. Agouti German Shepherds can also go through many stages of coat development, both lightening and darkening, before they reach maturity.
Color categorization of sables can be quite difficult when the dog is tattooed or photographed early in its life as the choice of color is often incorrect when you see this dog later in its life (because the coat color can change so dramatically as the dog matures).
