I couldn't tell you at what age I knew he had an undercoat, but he definitely has one, lol!

Here's a standing picture, at a couple of months past his second birthday:



Hard to believe, but he turned 7 in August.

Ahh! Look at all that fur! I will be all sorts of excited if Piper's coat turns out anything like his.

We have had 2 coated GSDs. Our first appeared to be a Long Coated Standard as she had very thick undercoating under the longer fur. My current boy is probably a long hair. His fur is very silky and parts right down the center of his back. Here is a picture of him. He is groomed so his hocks and legs are trimmed up along with his tummy to keep him from getting too messy

This is another one of Romeo. He is 2.5 years. Again, his thighs, hocks, legs are tummy are groomed otherwise they get unruly with their very long length since he plays in water etc all the time so they will look a little shorter.
