Both of my pups had a bit of white on their chest and they're both AKC registered. Their parents don't have any white on them either. In a few months time it disappeared but I really liked it!

It will go away and is not unusual.

Don't worry, small white 'patches' are not a negative (check out the breed description at AKC.org). In fact, GSD's frequently get random white hairs as they get older, especially on their muzzle and ruff.

Somewhat common for puppies to have a bit of white on the chest - it usually fades as they get older. Though some adults may retain their white chest spot.

Funny all the misconceptions flying around about GSDs!
