Is this a new breed of shepherd?

Ok so far in the last two years around here I've learned that a Malinois is not a Shepherd and that there are King Shepherds and Shilo and Dutch Shepherds... But this is a new one

What the heck is a Black Shepherd?

"This DOG - ID#A967485

I am a black Shepherd mix.

My age is unknown.

I have been at the shelter since Mar 22, 2014.

That is what I thought. So why are they calling a tan puppy a black shepherd?

maybe their crayons were mislabeled when they were children?

They probably just have the right bio on the wrong dog. I wouldn't worry about it until you see another tan dog being called a black shepherd mix, and then google it.

Just a point of clarification. Malinois and Dutchies are shepherds. It is true they are not German Shepherds but they are shepherds.
