Rerun, me too, usually dogs I see described as plush and think of as plush are LONG stock coats but they have a really full undercoat and not the really long, stringy long hair like some have. Falon's dog Kastle is one that I think is rather plush now that he's filled out a bit and has a nice undercoat. He is a long stock coat but just barely, but fluffy and soft. My Coke is not a GSD but also very plush, just very soft like what it feels like to hug a plush blanket or plush stuffed animal. Very thick undercoat but very soft overall (like the hairs themselves are not thick or coarse but the undercoat is very dense).
My WGSL dog Nikon has less coat than Pan (WL). I think plenty of WL dogs have really nice coats. A lot of times what I see with WGSL is not that they have more coat, or longer coat, or more plush coats but they are more "wet" and have more excess skin, if that makes sense? Like the dog in the original post.
