Blue Sable?

When I get bored at work, I look at puppies. I ran across this page of available puppies and saw that there is a blue sable male available. Looked on the McKay website, but didn't see any examples of adults in this color. Have any of you ever seen one? It just sounds so interesting...I'd love to see what they actually look like. Here's the website with the puppies so you can see what he looks like now...http://www.woodlandhavanese.com/wood...E_PUPPIES.html

Havanese do come in Blue....although I have never seen one in person, I would assume they would look like a dark sable except with a blue tint? This is interesting, the genetics behind Hav color is wild! haha, I too would be interested if someone knew what they looked like as an adult!

Hummm-
Yes, Havanese do come in blue, I have seen them in person.
Although I am not sure this person knows what they are talking about- Blue Sable? Never heard of it..... Silver sable maybe...

Never seen a blue sable Hav. When I was a kid, my dobie had a litter with a red and a blue pup. I was in LOVE with the blue one, he was so cute and glossy

I always thought the blue sable were the dark silvery that some sables turn. But when I was thinking I wanted a blue Hav, many here told me they are usually black as puppies that mature with a sort of a charcoal haze over them...or lighten to a real silvery charcoal. (Is Cash Blue then?) But I thought I also read that the real blues also have a charcoal nose and lighter eyes. But don't hold me to any of this since I am surely no expert... Could the dad be a blue?

I am on vacation right now, but will check into it when I get back. Diane (Woodland Havanese) is Brady's breeder. The father of that litter is Brady's father. I haven't seen Sweeper in a while, but he is a black and tan. He has a tint of blue (maybe). I will send Diane an email when I get back and ask her about him. I have been eyeing those puppies.

Karen, aren't they adorable?! Please let me know what she says. There's a picture of Sweeper on the page, and he does look bluish. Little Louis is the one I was looking at, but Princess Tiana is a cutie too

Nicole, you got that right...NO KIM NO!

In this case, it looks like blue is referring to the pigment. That nose isn't blackin the left photo; it's blue. (Although the right photo for Louis does look black, but it's so hard to tell in photos.) Yes, I suppose that could be a blue (pigment) sable (coat markings). I'd be curious to see what it looks like as an adult.

Does the ABC's of Havanese (Suzanne McKay's) web site even mention blue pigment?
