It's really hard to tell from the picture - could be red or could be cinnimon.

Although the coat looks cinnamon, I seem to remember that the black muzzle is a trait for reds. So a red? Correct me if anyone thinks it's one of my senior moments, memory wise.

There are so many variants to cinnamon color and red. If you look at Nikki in the avatar and then, down below her color pretty much stayed the same. But some of them in the litter were masked and looking like yours but seemed to have a shade lighter than Nikki grown up.. I'd say cinnamon, too.

I'm gonna guess outside of the box, but the pup almost looks blue to me. But it could just be that the pic is dark...

I'm not sure but if I were to guess I would say blue because his nails are dark, but you can see some red in his face #-o

This is Bramble when she was a few weeks old before we got her and to me they look very similar colour.

This pup looks like Lychee when she was small and Lychee is a fawn (cinnamon). Apollo on the other hand is a red and his fur wasn't that grey...it was more red.
