meet my first GSD Fritz....



He is 12 weeks old....hus brother and sisters were all black/tan...
My boy Fritz was an odd tri color...white/black/tan. Looks like a huskie almost.
He has papers, mom and dad were both on site. He likes to beat ul on my hundred pound shepard/Pyrenees mix Zeus.


One question...Fritz is 12 weeks old his ears sprung up streight as an arrow. Now one is wonkey...he plays hard....he didn't break cartlidge did he?


His right ear went kind of limp....also is his color rare?

Welcome to the site! Your pup is adorable for sure.

Regarding his coloration, there is a type of purebred GSD that carries a lot of white like that, it's called a 'Panda', it's pretty rare. Picture below.

What does your breeder say about his color, it's very unusual for a pure bred GSD?

I would be more inclined to guess that he's a mix. Stray make got in with mom. It's also completely possible for multiple dogs to sire a litter if they mated in a close time period

It's very unusual to have one like that and still be purebred.

Are his papers from the AKC? Just curious.

In any case he looks absolutely adorable and healthy.

Thank you for answering.

I was pondering the same scenario as Anubis Star mentioned but on the other hand the genetics for a lot of white does crop up, like with the "Panda" colored Shepherds. His ears definitely look like German Shepherd ears too. Oh and regarding his ears we have a sub forum about ears that you can ask questions about them standing up and such.

He was the only one in his litter not black/tan. And there is no way the breeder had her mounted by a stray....they live in a compound.

He's a cutie! Don't be too alarmed about the ear wobbling. Ears can come up and go down when pups are this young.

I vote "panda." The colors don't look exact, but that is the closest coloration. For me, I would enjoy the dog even more knowing that he is so unique. (However, the personality is way more important than any coat pattern/color.)

Thanks -Mouse
