Sable puppies can have a black or red base. The sable comes from a Poodle that carries a copy of Dominant Black K-Locus, kbr. When bred to a Black and Tan or Tri Cavalier King Charles we can sometimes have Black Sable Puppies. Our sable puppies are usually born black and clear (a kind of lightening) to almost a silver, with age. Sable puppies often have tan highlights or tickling through their coat from birth. Some black puppies may only have a small amount of sable on their legs and around their eyebrows and ears. One hair follicle can have 3+ shades, so even a haircut can make them change colour. These puppies have unique and interesting coats, as their colour usually lightens or darkens as it grows into an adult.
Below is a sample of our Adelaide Cavoodle black sable puppies and what they look like as adults.
