Brindle puppies

Just saw an ad on Craigslist (that will probably be flagged very soon) that was advertising 5 purebred GSD puppies, some of which are brindle:









Here's the ad:

I have 5 purebreed german shepherd puppies. These puppies do not have papers two males are brindle and one male is black with a white spot on his chest and he has brindle markings on his legs. The two females are brindle as well. These puppies could be anywhere from 65 to 120 pounds. I was only able to post four pictures. The top two pictures are boys and the bottom two are females. If interested please contact at (937) 456-XXXX and please no calls after 9:00 P.M. Those of you that keep flagging me these are not mutts and I have both parents on premisses and This was a conrolled breeding my female did not go outside without me by her side.


Sounds like the guy has had people tell him they aren't purebred. I find it interesting - possibly some Dutch Shepherd snuck in there (although they really are not common here). To me they don't look completely GSD, but it could be the coloring throwing me off.

Hm... Brindle German Shepherd puppies, no papers. Either his dog carries a rare recessive gene that is a throwback from 100 years ago, or there's a Boxer, mastiff, or Dutch Shepherd in the woodshed.

Tell him that he should do DNA on his dogs. If they are purebred they would be worth a lot more than he can get on Craigslist. Clearly they are not.

When the brindle gene existed in GSDs it was a dominant color, even over sable, not recessive. So IF it still existed in GSDs, we'd see a lot of it as every dog carrying it would be brindle. Dominant traits can't remain hidden.

So, either it is a spontaneous mutation of some sort or the dogs are mixed. Clearly the most likely scenario, particularly for unpapered dogs on Craigslist, is the later.

Is this on the Cincinnati Craigslist? Nevermind. I see it's gone. It was on Dayton, I think. I saw somebody comment :

"You aren't getting flagged because someone thinks you're re-homing mutts. You're being flagged because you are a breeder. When you posted it, did you not see the big yellow highlighted part that said "no pet sales or breeding"? Stating that it was a controlled breeding means you are NOT supposed to list them here. "

There sure are a lot of people looking for GSD puppies.

No the Dayton one - they are in Eaton (Preble County). I checked this morning and it was flagged and removed but I saved the guy's contact info.

Boy, they sure are cute. I wonder what they really are. Sometimes a GSD with DS in it looks a lot like a GSD.
