NormanF The German SV refuses to recognize the existence of a white German Shepherd. They won't acknowledge there is ANY such dog.

I really don't care what they think; that champagne German Shepherd is living proof more of some people's prejudices than its a judgment about the dog!

I know you don't know the answers and they aren't your dogs. My insane curiosity makes me ask these things!
They would have to both be Ee for red for the pups to turn out this color. No need for a DNA test, just breed them to other dogs who haven't thrown white pups...It seems harsh to speuter them both.

I think champagne is a lovely look. My girl is like a toasted marshmellow- white with that golden retriever color on her back, ears, and tail tip.

Here's a great webpage about the recessive red gene: Dog Coat Colour Genetics
And about phaeomelanin dilution:

She looks like a golden retriever because it's the exact same gene that gives golden retrievers their color! It will be fun to see pics as she grows. I bet she will be stunning. I think it's kind of sad the white dogs can't be recognized. We have chocolate, black, and golden labs so why not golden shepherds?

Xena9012 Hi from Australia too! Love the colour of your GSD. Who cares if she doesn't make standards, all that matters is that she is a beautiful dog.

silverseahorse Beautiful! I love the "unique" colouration. I know it isn't "rare" and blah blah blah... But I think they are beautiful. I'm a little guarded because of a conversation I had on a breeding forum where I got lynched about the breed standard and how she has major faults. I am not planning on breeding her and her parents are screened/xrayed etc so what is supposed to happen to her? Cull a perfectly good puppy?! So I decided to join a GS forum and find some normal people :P
