Black and white with tan markings would be registered as a black and tan with markings also registered as either parti, pied, or white markings depending on the location and amount of white.
Silvering and color change (which are completely different things) are still a bit of a mystery to me. Mario was sired by a white and out of a black and white parti. Neither lightened, but 3/4 puppies were red sable partis that lightened significantly. Nino's parents have had 2 litters. All puppies, black and white and white with cream, held color, except for 1. She was born a dark black and white and has silvered significantly, but only in the mask area.
I do also want to add that blue is an unacceptable coloring in Havanese and no reputable breeder would have bred the blue dam. I would look elsewhere.
