She looks like a phantom to me, too, and an absolute poppet!

Thanks for posting. It's really interesting how the phantom markings are interacting with the blue/silver. I wonder if she will end up blue and gold, like a Yorkshire or Silken terrier.

Her face looks like it’s sable. Maybe blue sable? Cannot be cream sable as if she were cream (ee) then red/cream/ apricot covers all other markings. Some dogs leak other patterns that they have but it fades over time. So if she were sable it would be ay/at (with the at/phantom leaking through but will fade) since sable is more dominant. Ask on poodle color genetics forum on Facebook I’m sure they would know.

My boy Rusty is a sable and has a cream muzzle which makes it highly likely that he will clear to cream.

I didnt know that poodles faded with age when I bought him (from a non professional breeder).

As a puppy with our lovely collie Tass (rip) and now, seven months old with our labrador, Jojo.

Thanks guys! Is it normal to have phanthom markings previously and fade to a pure silver/cream sable or? Very strange to see a puppy go from black and sable markings to a silver/grey! Is it normal? Quite sad to see my puppy change colours (not the colour per se but just how she’s changing/growing too fast :( )

Very cute! And I didn’t expect mine to fade so drastically as well!
