We really need to see a better picture of your dog. The avatar is cute, but it doesn't show enough of your dog. My assumption is that she is a SP as she doesn't really look much like a BS. What do her registration papers say? Most dogs, particularly SPs, will lighten up with clippering over time.... some sooner than others.

Thank you for the reply haha I tried to attach a full body picture but it didnt' work I don't think ... I don't have papers I never bought her wanting them or in the interest of having them I just bought her from a local woman that has 2 mini's and breeds them ... the father is a salt and pepper and the mom is black, I am gonna change my avatar and see if I can put a picture in there of her sorry I am pretty unsure of how to post a picture apparently the image link here isnt' how I do it haha thank you I will change my avatar Smile

To post an image link, the photo needs to be up on some website, such as Photobucket, etc. Your bitch is definitely a SP. The two in my photos are black-and-silver.

Welcome to the forum.

"Silver" is just an ignorant person's name for a very light salt-and-pepper. SP undercoat colors can range from a silvery-white all the way to black, and when that dog is clipped, all you pretty much see is that undercoat color. I once had a SP with a black undercoat, and when he was shaved, he was darker than some of my clipped BS.
