looking for advice
 
i want to purchase a gsd puppy and a friend of mine told me that a relative of his had a pregnant white female but the dad was tan and black. He told me both was akc registered and both purebred. My question is would it be considered purebred by them being different colors and would the puppies be abled to be registered also. Thank you in advance

If parents are both registered color doesn't matter, you can register pups

If both parents are purebred and have a full (breeding) registration by the AKC then they are registered. Mego is correct. The color has nothing to do with it. You don't know what you will get though because white masks the true color of the dog.

Some AKC dogs have a "limited registration" and their offspring cannot be registered. A full registration certificate has a purple border and limited has orange.

That said, having an AKC certificate only means the dog is purebred, assuming the breeders were honest that the parents listed on the registration are, in fact, the correct parents. It is no guarantee of quality.


Limited Registration

So i should look at the parents papers

Yes that would be a fair thing to look for. This thread has a lot of good advice. Remember this puppy will be with you 10-12 years or more.

Now i was looking and i really like the white but i read that there is something wrong with them on the akc site what does that mean.

There is nothing wrong with them. White is a disqualifying fault when it comes to AKC conformation shows. Just means you can't show a white dog in an AKC show.

Exactly.... white gsd's are just a disqualifying color at a conformation show. They can be great dogs just like any color GSD.

Much more then color the thngs you SHOULD worry about are explained in the thread mentioned above --->
