I had a East German Red Sable GSD who is one of the best looking GSD's IMO. He was my pride and joy until last week when he passed away. I used to get approached by breeders like crazy who wanted me to stud him out.

I had him and a solid black Czech female, and now I just have the female. Putting him down last week was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

I'm so sorry for your loss!

I've always heard it called "gold sable" is a color that has been in the breed for a long time, but it's always been pretty uncommon. It's usually a tan/gold dog with a black mask. I think the color may be more often seen in the UK GSDs... Here's some I found -- Stud Dogs



I wonder if a "cinnamon sable" is a liver sable? I saw a picture of one on the PDB today...
Draco vom Bettendorf - German Shepherd Dog

About 20 years ago, I knew a really pretty liver sable out in Oregon--gorgeous dog, richly colored, but had the brown nose and eye rims. Much darker than the dog in this picture.

Wow those two dogs are beautiful! I really like the way the liver masks looks on that dog, very interesting color combination.

Maybe the same person who picks a longhair vs. short? Or a white over a black?

I did not expect to see that pedigree under the second dog!

Draco is a liver sable. (And an absolutely gorgeous dog, IMO).

I've heard the 'blonde' sables called many things.

Ay fawn, gold, blonde, cream, etc.

I know this is a super old thread, but that's what my little girl GSD looks like, she's only 13 weeks and I've encountered the raised eyebrow, "she's full blooded?" a lot already :/ I think she's beautiful and very smart!
