Yes that would be a fair thing to look for. This thread has a lot of good advice. Remember this puppy will be with you 10-12 years or more.

If both parents are purebred and have a full (breeding) registration by the AKC then they are registered. Mego is correct. The color has nothing to do with it. You don't know what you will get though because white masks the true color of the dog.
Some AKC dogs have a "limited registration" and their offspring cannot be registered. A full registration certificate has a purple border and limited has orange.
That said, having an AKC certificate only means the dog is purebred, assuming the breeders were honest that the parents listed on the registration are, in fact, the correct parents. It is no guarantee of quality.

looking for advice
i want to purchase a gsd puppy and a friend of mine told me that a relative of his had a pregnant white female but the dad was tan and black. He told me both was akc registered and both purebred. My question is would it be considered purebred by them being different colors and would the puppies be abled to be registered also. Thank you in advance
