She looks like a blue to me. Silver would have a lighter face and probably have started clearing at that age.

Anyways, she's darling!!

how old is your mini? my blue spoo is 7 months old and considerably darker than your mini although she is getting progressively lighter by the month. yours looks almost phantom! but could be blue or silver depending on how old she is...

Either a silver

or

A Blue/Silver Phantom....

I am so sure some of these so called "silvers" are verging on being phantom...

hmmm...

I thought the exact same thing.
Depending on how old she is, she looks like a phantom to me. Blue/Silver. If she's just a pup, she may be a silver, but does bear quite a bit of resemblance to a phantom.

The reason I think she's not silver (please correct me if I'm wrong) is she doesn't have the light-coloured face, or light-coloured *roots*.

Examples:
My girl at 3/4months


Six months


7/8 months


A year old


And then her in my siggie pic (though shaved down) at now 16 months

Her face looks pretty light to me... just fluffy. I wonder what she'd look like with her face shaved.

No expert here, but I am guessing silver.

also

i believe she is clearing... if you look around the back side at the back legs she is a way lighter color than the top of her back and i read thats where the color starts to "clear" first!!

You have to remember there is a range in every color and sometimes it's hard to tell when a dark silver becomes a light blue, IMO. For that matter when does a light red become a dark apricot, a light cream become white or a light brown become a cafe au lait? It's hard to tell where the line is sometimes, at least for me it is.

I think you will get a better read on what color she is in a few months and I'd get her face shaved to see what color it is.
