Black + White = Wolf?

So I came across some photos today, claiming to have a "silver sable" GSD out of a solid black x solid white breeding. Here's the link:

Spirit of the Wolf on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I know silver sables actually exist, but I've never seen one that looks even remotely like this.
This dog looks like a mix to me, plain and simple. I don't believe for one second that its pure GSD, but now I am curious as to what the actual results would be from a black x white breeding cross?

I know both are receive colors... but I'm not big on genetics, so I have no clue as to what that kind of a mix would produce.

Any insight?

GSDs- Mulder, Ridley, Vega
GSD on the half shell- Rigel

He doesn't look purebred. He looks like he's probably part husky, by the facial markings. Just a guess, though.
Either way, that's a beautiful dog.

I can't comment on whether he is pure GSD or not - he doesn't look it. But the white gene in GSD's is a masking gene, so the white parent could have genetically been a sable...so black x white could have produced sables.

Based on the dog's looks, I wonder if the white dog was really a white Husky and not a white GSD.

I agree, whatever he is, he's gorgeous. But purebred, I highly doubt.

phgsd- interesting! Didn't know that's how the masking gene worked.
