A couple of weeks ago we saw a long coat WGSL German Shepherd who was, no joke, the most beautiful GSD I have ever seen. Just stunning and probably what some people would call a plush, as he didn't really have flowing long hair, just longer hair. My husband then became obsessed with wanting Hans to have a mane like a lion.

But the older he gets I am not 100% sure anymore that he's a coatie. His dog walker has another GSD puppy client, a coatie and she and Hans look very, ver different at this point. Any thoughts based on the pics?

8 weeks:

10 weeks:

14 weeks:

Either way, I think he is beautiful. Love his colors

SummerGSDLover My puppie had the same look but as he's grown he's more plush. Definitely not a coated GSD but not stock coat either. Long hair but not super long.

Thank you! Both of his parents had great pigmentation, and I have a feeling he'll have a similar overall pigmentation to his dam. She is super red/black.

Haha, thanks! He was sort of the unofficial mascot for a game store opening the day he wore it, so he got to meet lots of people and get lots of treats. That's why he's got such a happy face in that picture!

stmcfred I agree with the others, doesn't look like a coatie to me. He is absolutely adorable though!!
04-09-2014 05:25 PM
anitram Yeah, I am having doubts too.

He still has floofy hair BEHIND his ears (like at the base where they meet the head) but none of the sort of side growing floofs that I see in the female coatie that he's friends with.

FG167 I would say no. Mine always had the extra ear and toe floofs
