Default Solid black face west german puppy

Looking for a West German show line puppy with a solid black face.
I have seen several dogs with this coloring and I was wondering if anyone has puppies that have one of the parents with those markings

This is my girl:
SG1 Odessa von Aurelius

I think I got one of her face:


Is this what you are looking for? Or is there too much color there?

SL pups are born mostly black, and the tan/red comes through as they grow....there is no way to guarantee that the face will remain black....I have seen a few with totally black faces, and their parents did not have that much black on their face...

this is a criteria no one can can even begin to guarantee.....it is really not predictable

Most WGSL I see have less black on their faces than working lines, or even American show lines... some have a totally tan/red face with very little black except on the muzzle. I think it would be next to impossible to know which puppies will mature to have a blacker face, since they are born almost totally black and get lighter as they mature. But I would try to find a breeder whose dogs have blacker faces and heads, and don't suffer from color fading (some showline dogs only seem to have half a saddle).

I really like black faces too. A face that is totally black except for tan eyebrows and cheeks? Be still my heart!

What Lee said. There are lots of them but impossible to predict unless you have a few generations. A solid black face can produce one that is not and vice versa.

What about and this is just me being curious... My pup is pretty dark(granted he is only four months so still a lot of time for his color to change), his dam is a solid black WL and sire is a traditional black and red WGSL(although if OP only wants a SL then this wouldn't be an option)... Is there more chance to produce a darker dog or one with a mask or still just one of those things too hard to predict? Asking on the OP's part, not trying to hijack! I would love if mine kept his mask but won't be the end of the world if he doesn't.

Carrie, I think it's still just a flip of the coin thing. I know that Gatordog has a WL/WGSL cross and he has little black on his face (though if I may say so myself, he's quite a hunk).

He is a hunk! But I don't think either his sire or dam was an all black dog. I know there are a couple here with similar mixes like mine(Stark for one, can't remember the others name) and they both have masks... Again just something I'm curious about.

I dunno. My girl's grand-dam on sire's side was solid black. Grand sire was black/tan. Her father had the same mask as she does.
