Default Silver/grey german shepherds??

i recently just lost my white german shepherd of 11.5 years. A few years ago ran ran in to a man walking a white/silver/ grey german shepherd. he assured me it was a german shepherd and seemed to know what he was talking about. Does anyone know of or ever seen this before? or know where I might find a breeder?

Is that a panda shepherd? There is one on petfinder if you look in the NY area.

Do you mean "silver" like this coloring -
http://www.shepherdrescue.org/pages/jade2.html

The coloring of that dog is essentially the same as any other black and tan dog, except that the tan coloring is very light and faded looking. They are sometimes called silver, if the color is very light, or cream, if it has more of a yellow tint.

Oh man, where does that panda coloring come from? It's so funny, that dog looks like a calico shepherd!

what the OP described sounds like a sable. technically a sable is a sable, but they are often further described as red sable, silver sable, grey sable, black sable, etc....

these are a few dogs that come to mind from your description:

Doreen, Cheyanne is a stunner! How are things going with her HW treatments? I love her eyeliner!
Grey GSD's are really blue's. I took some pics of a pup last spring:
Need to go back over there and update his looks.
This person had two black siblings, both intact and went on vacation. The female came into heat and the results were 3 pups(luckily only 3), one b&t, one black and one blue.
Vet told her not to terminate the pregnancy. She kept the blue pup, homed the black with relatives and gave the b&t to friends, all are healthy. These dogs live outside w/ shelter at an automotive junkyard. I am not a friend of the owner, but look for them when I pass by. I heard about the blue pup from a friend who works with the owner, and my curiosity made me go there and ask to photog. them. It had rained for several days and they were filthy because of their environment, but were well taken care of. B&T had already been adopted, so no pics of him. I don't know if blue boys ears are soft or not. Now I know I need to get back over there!!
BTW~ blue, panda, livers are not what responsible GSD breeders will breed for, and they should not breed for these colors...



mom and pups at 11 weeks:
