I would think, because the standard calls for a good mask and good pigment, that black faces should be good. I know I prefer deep pigment and black faces. Lol.

There are some misconceptions here...

In European Showlines - there are NO blacks or bi-colors...none, nada, zip, zero, nil.....

If you want a black or a bi-color, you need a working line dog - even in the crosses, the showline does not carry black (maybe 1 in 1000 might have a gene slip through from 40 years ago...) I think it is pretty safe to say you won't get a black or a bi from a first generation cross....you MAY from a 2nd generation cross if the showline was bred to black, and the progeny was again bred to black (or to dog carrying black recessive)

ASLs come in all colors....but the OP had a Euro showline and that is the "look" she wants again...

My showline male face is still pretty dark. He will be 3 in March and also has white on his chin & under his nose

This was taken last week.


His dad Orus



His mom's face is not dark either.

My mistake. The SL dogs that I was thinking look more WGSL, but are ASL/WGSL crosses. :/

Oh I mentioned bi-color because I wanted the OP to see what is probably the most stunning look of them all.

Thank you, shepherdmom! He was my foster dog and I absolutely loved him. He came from a shelter in GA. He lives in a quiet home in the woods with two wonderful people and a bossy female GSD that they adopted from the rescue a year later. OP - I always mention it, don't know your location, but you can find some real gems in rescue/checking things like Petfinder | Pet adoption: Want a dog or cat? Adopt a pet on Petfinder
