Pup's change color's all the time genetically it can't go from a buckskin to a blue dog or blue fawn though if the pup was born a blue dog the color can change slightly over time by getting darker or lighter .. Those little pups you posted look like blue fawns. Can you post more pics of your pup in better lighting? Def looks like it has a black mask/nose which would mean it couldn't be a blue dog .. But it could very well be a blue fawn can't tell in the original lighting the dog should still have a have blue nose though fawn being the main color of the coat with a blue cast throughout the coat. Below is a blue fawn does this look like what your seeing?

To me those puppies just look like they have sableing. When a dog gets bigger the black hairs throughout the coat can spread out more, and the dog can look almost fawn.

Yeah he is a smutty sable.Color changing isn't uncommon in sables. Some are born to look black until later in life or are light and then darken.

Sable is like a fawn with more shading.The way in which his shading is makes him the smutt.

They are very tiny. It's probably just lighting that makes it "look" blue in the pics. They do look confusing when they are babies. I've seen a lot of puppies look like that. How the black is dispersed through the coat it sometimes makes them look blueish in different lighting. I'd just say sable with a black mask though.

Those two puppies has grown up without there mother so they almost die.She bite them and I had to find another dog who has puppy to so she could feed my two little ones.but that dog was not taking care of so my other 2 puppies die because they didnt get anything to eat.and I was shore that those 2 never gonne grow up because they had been without food for several day.I feed theme from 3 weeks old every two hour around the clock till they was 8 week.and now they are not tiny anymore.I had to put there mother to sleep for good when the puppies was 4 days because she bite my friend right in the face.that was the sadest thing I ever had to do.so the 2 puppies was very tiny when they was babies but now they have grown and is pretty normal sized.

Your dog is buckskin with a black mask.

Sable/yellow dogs almost always have black hairs on their coat. Some have almost none, or few and most on the tail maybe a little on the face, back, ears. It varies some have more from tail to face ending in a widows peak. Heavily shaded dogs will have darker color covering their body from the tail, over the back and to the head. Looking like your pups did when they were young when they are adults, a lot of people call it smut in this breed. While their are adults that look like your young pups with many of them the shading fades over time, like it did with yours. If the dog has an Em allele then they will have a black mask.

A dog which is dd (causes black to be blue) will have blue hairs, nose, eye times, ect. If they have a mask it would be blue. This is known as blue fawn. If they are heavily shaded its called blue smut.

A dog which is bb (causes black to be red-liver) will have the red hairs, nose, and mask of the have a mask. The heavily shaded dog would be red smut.

Your pups appear with a grayish cast as pups but were not actual blue dogs, this isn't uncommon at all. I've had seals who as infants looked blue, gray, silver but they get darker with age. Sometimes buckskins without much shading will also appears to have grayish colored hairs.

I had one pup, brindle who's stripes appeared blue but they are not a blue brindle. Their nose and other pigmentation is black. As they got older the stripped darker to the proper black. Though anyone unable to see the nose would have probably thought she was a blue brindle when she was real young.
