Hi guys! I am new to the group and I have a pressing color-related question... we are getting a puppy that the breeder states is a phantom, but I want to see what y'all think. It doesnt really matter either way, but I am curious.
Her mom is black and white parti and her dad is black and red phantom.
Within the litter, there were brown and tan phantoms, black and red phantoms (or possibly sables as their colors look muddied) and one apricot.

Doesn't look phantom to me, but maybe. My parti-phantom boys didn't look phantom when they were first born, but they developed very distinctive eyebrows within a few weeks.

My guess is abstract Sable phantom. But I'm a little surprised that your breeder paired pups with owners so early. It is generally seen as ideal to pair pups based on temperament. Usually this is done at 6-8 weeks to make sure that families have the best match in energy and demeanor. Your puppy looks around two weeks of age. Regardless, she is going to be a cute puppy.
