What is a reverse mask?

I read somewhere about a reverse mask, but have been unable to find pictures of exactly what that means.

Is this considered a fault?

Finally, would Hans's be considered a reverse mask?

The standard is that the muzzle be predominantly black. And yes that is what some people call a reversed mask!

But with that being said I love that look and the best GSD I've ever had looked just like your picture. Beautiful!

Thank you!

So now I have a name for his tan face

I actually told the breeder I would prefer a lighter face.
I have absolutely no idea how she knew, when he looked like this, that he would end up like the picture above, but she told me that if I wanted a face like his mother's, he would have it:



Here is his mom Questa:

His mom is gorgeous, as is your dog!

Yes Lord vom G has a reverse mask. I read somewhere that it originated with his lines- something about his breeder preferring it or breeding him for it.

A reverse mask. A fault I often saw coming down from Lord.
