Default Is our puppy going to be long or short haired ?

Our 12 year old German Shepherd Einstein passed away a month ago, we had him since he was 8 weeks old. It was too wierd without anyone greeting you in the home anymore so we decided to get another puppy.


Zeek is 9 week old but im not sure if he is going to be a long or short haired Shepherd. His father was a long hair dog and mom was short.

I took a couple pics.

It's hard to tell. He's got that longish hair on his chest and front legs but the puppies change so much as they grow. Congratulations! I am so sorry for the loss of your Einstein. I lost my Carleigh in December at the age of 12yrs. 4mos. due to hemangiosarcoma. While we can't replace them and will always remember them, a new pup sure helps us focus on the good times!

He looks like a stock coat. I'm not seeing any long hair around the ears, which is a dead giveaway for longcoats.

BTW, we have a maximum picture posting size of 800 x 600. Yours are 1024 x 763.

Loved the videos. The first one, I cried my eyes out but what a lovely tribute. The second one made me smile, what a cutie and the music was perfect.
