meldy I love the fluffy too!!

Castlemaid I've seen lots of GSDs with a short summer coat like that. Many GSDs have a plush coat, which is probably what you are thinking of. Gryffon is a plush - LOVE his fluffly butt!

meldy How come it looks so short as compared to most, if not all, GSD's?
I don't want to use 'shaggy' but they have more of a wolf type coat. Lots of thick layers (I really want to say a GSD coat lol but that would defeat the analogy altogether)

At first I thought maybe it was a summer type coat, after a shed, but Ive had a GSD (and a few crosses) and have seen them lots and they always seem to maintain the longer hair along the bottom of their body regardless of how much they lose anywhere else.
That dog doesn't really even have that?

It looks almost like a dutch shepherd type coat? (it's not, I understand that, but it looks very similar to me)

Castlemaid That is actually a normal coat that you linked - the mole coat almost looks as short as a Sharpei coat. I've only seen one GSD with a mole coat, it was a BYB type rescue dog.

meldy Thank you =) Ive seen it on a few dogs (online) and was wondering what it was all about.

dogfaeries The very short, tight coat is referred to as a "mole" coat.

Short haired?

Is there a short haired GSD? What is this coat??
