Default Beaucerons and GSD's rare in the USA?

Beauceron/ German Shepard Mix Puppies

And how would you get blue merles out of this cross? Is that possible?

I don't buy it. Look like Catahoula cur mixes. Or who knows, could have been a dual-sired litter as well.

Beauceron's can come in a harlequin coat color, so maybe it came from the Beauceron part?

Beuceron's have a "merle" coat. Beauceron's are not common in the US. I"m not sure what the purpose would be to breed to a GSD.

Most Beacerons look like Dobes on Steroids. I know a few in the states but they are not common. The right one can be a very intimidating dog but I gather they have their own set of issues. I have not seen any merle ones though.

No clue what they were thinking putting the two breeds together.

Beaucerons are very rare in the US - and harlequins even more so. The post has been removed though, so I can't see it.

But this is a harlequin...


I do like beaucerons, but crossing them with GSD's would be pointless.

Unfortunately they crop their ears (in the US)

IMO they look goofy without cropped ears...like hound mixes or something...

Disturbing when people want to play frankenstein breeding in their backyard.
