My coaties have the exact same genetics as their stock coated siblings, so if they're not really GSDs then neither was the rest of the litter! As far as being "duped", I actually wanted longcoats, and would have felt duped if I bought a puppy that was supposed to be a coatie but turned out not to be. They're now my preference and I can't imagine myself owning a regular stock coat again.
People think and say stupid things all the time. People are going to love your dogs or they're not, they're going to like you or they're not. You just can worry about other people think, especially when YOU know your dog is the BEST!
