Is it brindle?
I've been looking up photos of brindle puppies and that kind of looks like what I've been seeing

I think her dam is silver. She has the most adorable little face! I was just wondering if the tips of her hair would gradually fade or gradually darken.

Usually dogs get lighter. So whatever color they start out they gradually get lighter especially in silvers.

Does the breeder not know what color? Looks sable to me, but hard to tell with just a head shot.

I had a silver spoo at one time but she was very inky black until she started getting lighter. I've never seen a "silver" this color before. I really like her!

Gah I can't even figure out what the difference is. They look so similar. I'm guessing that the cafe starts out brown and clears to a light brown and has the brown pigment right? The silver beige has the black pigment.

What the world is a sable? Is that a new color?

No, I am pretty sure Silver Beiges have brown pigment, as they start off brown.

Sable is like the colour of a Sheltland Sheepdog or a Rough Collie, the Lassie dog.

Silver Beiges are like silvery brown, and Cafes are like a milky coffee type colour

She sure is a cutie but after the initial inquiry the breeder will not get back with me. Don't know if it's me or them! LOL!

Sable.

It has black, brown and silver (silver beige?) hairs running through the coat. This would again be a disqualifying color in AKC because it is not 1 color.

As much as I would LOVE to have this little girl, the breeder says she is going to be bigger than we would like. What a shame! I think she is darling.

Breeder says she is Sable!

By experience i can tell you that KPoos is right.
I've had two "black" poodles, with little whites in their puppy faces; and they have both turned silver.

So, i would say that your cute little puppy (she's adorableee!!) is silver! & gorgeous!
