Gee, thanks!! Lol... question is, is she going to keep the fuzzybutt or she going to shed it? And I am not even sure if the color is brown or gray maybe? It really looks brown to me, but doesn't even had that "saddle-back" look that I love so much in GS... Can anyone tell if she doesn't look purebred GSD? I would really like to know...

Did you change your name? Your puppy's color will change and she gets older. She will most likely get lighter. Gus was almost all black when I got him and hes covered in silver now. She looks pure bred to me.

Dear GusGus, I have to apologize to jaymas100 for using his/her thread for my post. I am new here and I still haven't figure out how to start a new thread. So, again, my apologies to jaymas100. But to answer your question, no I didn't change my name. I just signed up right before I wrote on this thread... So, I hope you were looking at my pictures posted in link #10.

there is no doubt in my mind you have a coated puppy. Her coat is much too thick to be a stock coat and with her ear floofies she is defintiely a long coated pup. Trust me

I've been doing some reading on coats and I've found some confusing information out there. One link I found here 4GSD - Coat Colours describes two kind of "coated" GS, one called Plush Coat (more desirable for showing), and one called Long Stock (even though it has an undercoat, it's not a desirable length), and a last one called Standard Long Coat (considered a fault). Also, it looks to me (and what do I know?? :-) that she maybe have what it's called a blanket coat? Both her parent had that Saddle look though. The dark brown color on her back goes down almost around her belly... Today she woke up and both ears were up! :-)

Also, when I got her two weeks ago, she looked really undernoorished, at only 10.4lbs, with poor muscle tone. She is now 15.7lbs. Her coat looks very fuzzy and has no shine at all. In the beginning I thought it was due to poor diet, or maybe she was going to shed this coat in exchange for a more lush one... but after the comment that about looking like a mutt... I just have to wonder... I would love to post a photo, if someone can suggest me how.
