I don't know why. I probably should have asked but didn't. I have baby pictures but not on my phone. The colour doesn't photograph brilliantly, but she is the colour of a golden retriever apart from a white tip on her tail. White german shepherds are not recognised in Australia. She can be recognised as a "Swiss Shepherd". It doesn't make any sense to me since she came from two german shepherds and she is classes as a swiss shepherd.
I was going to add some more pictures but my phone doesn't seem to want to cooperate. I'll get the laptop out later!
