While color is probably the last thing I consider when getting a GSD, I guess white is my favorite color and the rest of the colors are about equal. I've never had a black or bi color, not because I don't like them just because I never had the opportunity to get one when I was looking for a dog.

I like the dark sables best, but I like them all.

I've owned or fostered a wonderful black, bicolor, black-and-tan, red-and-black, silver-and-black, and white dog -- I choose the dog, not the coat. Or sometimes the dog chose me. I wouldn't have wanted to miss out on any of them by being picky about color.

In rescue, I have a special place in my heart for the black GSDs because they are the ones who have the most trouble getting out of shelters alive, and I've known several who are wonderful but were long-overlooked by adopters intent on what they perceived to be "classic black and tan" dogs. No matter how many times we tell the adopters that other colors are also "classic" and have been part of the breed from the beginning, the adopters in my area all have an image in their head of a dog they want that looks like Rin Tin Tin. Even the whites have a better time getting adopted than the blacks because the whites look "friendlier." Black GSDs are the rescue "underdogs," and I find myself rooting for them at the shelter where I volunteer.

I'm not sure about other dogs with white markings, but panda shepherds are described as having rich pigment, with white faces (usually with black ticking on them), white underbellies/necks, etc.

I love the solid blacks, a true bi-color (black penciling & hocks), dark sables & especially the solid whites. Like Capt. von Stephanitz said "No good dog can be a bad colour".

For me, the darker the better. Whether it is a dark sable, black, bicolor, or blanket black/tan. But, as with my horse choices, I choose the dog with color being far down the list. It doesn't mean I don't still like other colors better.

When I was looking for my next horse I wanted anything but red. I found a really awesome gelding that was everything I wanted and more. Of course, he was a chestnut (red) and I couldn't be happier with him. I can still enjoy other colors, but I love my animals.
