Default What line would you assume this litter was from?

If there were a litter of 9 puppies, all which were long stock coats, and 5 were sables and 4 were black/tan, what lineage would you assume they were from?

Parents have completely straight backs, if that matters? Also, I'd love to hear your reasoning!

American Show Lines and/or American Pet Lines.

1) Because people tend to forget that there are sable ASL dogs
2) Because I think this must be some kind of trick question.

I do not know the answer LOL! I was wondering what people with more expertise than I would assume this GSD would be. Could be wrong, could be right, I have no clue!

could be working or a cross with ASL/APL

Two different sires? Straight backs come in all forms

Hmm, never heard of American Pet Line (doesn't sound very good lol). What if many of the puppies produced (not from this sire & dam) are sables?

Could be anything--the long-coat gene is in all GSD bloodlines.

I would guess because of the sables it would be unlikely that it was pure West German Showlines.

Well, it could be a mix of anything--the only thing I would guess is that the litter is not 100% German show line--you don't see many sables in German show lines. All lines of GSD have the gene for long coats.

Most reputable breeders do not make a habit of breeding longcoat to longcoat, which is the most likely explanation for a 100% longcoat litter. So I could hazard another guess that it's a BYB. Granted, it's possible to breed two short coats (or short coat to longcoat) and get a litter of 9 longcoats, but it's highly unlikely.

Hmm okay. I kinda assumed it'd be a mix of sorts. I was surprised to see so many sables in the litter with two red & black parents. The dad is a LC and the mom is a plush coat i believe?

Thanks for all the responses btw, i knew y'all would be the best to ask!

Oh, it's not a "byb" and a couple people from this forum have GSD from this kennel. It's not a dog most people on this forum are looking for though... if that makes any sense?
