Luther was rich bi-colored, his markings were like a rottweiler with a pointy head and pointy ears. No idea what his parents looked like. We had a neighborhood dog who was also rich bi colored but wasn't DDR, they were nearly identical except Sergie had a much longer muzzle.
Otto's parents were both blanket backed black and reds. Both grandsires were black, granddams were red sable and the parents looked very much alike. Otto doesn't look like any of them, he ended up with a reverse mask like his great grandfather Lord vom Gleisdreieck. Many of Otto's siblings from his sire look like Lord.
Otto's also got this crazy red and silver bitch stripe.
Very rich deep color and he's so soft. Luther was soft and fluffy too in the winter. Not like my female who's sleek but not fluffy.
Head shot - please excuse that he's kinda pudgy here, I messed up my neck bad in the fall and couldn't walk him his usual 2 or 3 miles a day but we're back and working on that pudge! Mercy I hope it doesn't convert to muscle, he's strong enough already...

|glowingtoadfly||As far as the differences between east and west go, both my dogs are a mixture of east and west working lines and Skadi has that touch of Czech to keep things, um, interesting, so I am not sure which traits are coming from where. It is interesting to hear the viewpoints of an experienced owner on the matter.|

I've noticed that many of the DDR dogs I've seen have a dark coat; dark sable, blanket back, bi-color. Of course this isn't true for all DDR dogs, I've just seen a lot of it.
It may not mean much, considering he's DDR/West German show line cross, but his sire is pure DDR and the dam's pedigree
also has some DDR dogs.
Varick is very intelligent. He can open the storm door by jumping up and "grabbing" the knob with his paws and pulling it open.

Otto's nickname is the Mookie Monster but he's brilliant. Took a while for him to learn that nobody has his athletic prowess and that he needs to be considerate!
LOL I'll never forget the winter when he was like 1 1/2, Morgan was 8 and there were huge snowbanks. Otto would just bullrush up the top of a snowbank expecting Morgan and I were right behind him.
Meanwhile Morgan's headed for the path she found as the way to lead the party around the snowbank through a well packed path and I'm in the middle with my arms going in opposite directions.
