I don't know the answer to your question, but it would be nice to know where they came from.

Whites were among the very first GSDs, so they have always been around. But in Germany they were selected against after a certain point.

Americans, however, continued breeding whites. I am not sure if there were many breeders in Germany who bred whites, so I want to say that Whites are an American line GSD... but distinct from American show lines.

Good question! (Ignore my previous answer... LOL)

I always thought the white German Shepherds didn't look like GSDs in structure, unless you had one born of two coloured parents with correct conformation. It is indeed true that there are white dogs amongst the oldest shepherd dogs (among other colours such as brindle) - Greif von Sparwasser was white!

There are whites coming out of Europe (though they have a new name) so they are not all American lines. I have not paid attention to the lines of the ones coming out of Europe so don't know if they have been separate for many generations or if there are some familiar names there.
