It's not a problem just her coloring/pigment. Some shepherds grey very early, some even at a year or around there.

Cheyenne just turned two and is already starting to get gray on her chin. Didn't think it would happen so soon...but some dogs, as with some people, just start graying early! I always tease my husband that I'm the trophy wife, because he started going gray in his early 30's and I don't have one gray hair yet (late 40's) and we are only 1 1/2 years apart! LOL

My guy went gray very early on too - probably by 18 months or so. Now at 3, he is totally gray on one side of his muzzle only - and just that side - the other side is normal! He has one very gray long whisker that we keep teasing him that we are going to have to pluck

Rex started going gray around four and now he's frosted all over his face. His whiskers are white on one side and black on the other.
