In Act II, Scene I :
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

If the GSDCA changed the standard tomorrow making black and tans a disqualifying fault, would you stop breeding them?

|J and J M||AKC has it wrong. If Max Von Stephanitz said "No good dog is a bad color" and didn't mind the white ones then how can the AKC step in and say they can't be in the conformation ring. As far as the SV not accepting it, wasn't that Hitler's view. He didn't think whites made good war dogs.|

If you havent noticed Im a rookie when it comes to the dog world. I am trying to learn as much as possible.
Im not intrested in registrating my pup or anything of that sort. I just want to KNOW.
The father is FCI registarted.
The mother is registarted in a breed club. Not in SKK (SKK = Swedish FCI).
The mother has it's history registarted 3 generations back. This is the 5th generation pup I got.
I could apply and try to get the pup into SKK.. tho not everyone gets in.

That makes sense.
I thought that the white ones had such a following that they started registering them as Berger Blanc Suisses and went through the process of creating a breed for White GSDs.
I think in Germany, the strict guidlines on breeding have made the color pretty much extinct there from GSD litters. In the US, the color is very much alive.

If two GSDs create a litter with a white pup, this pup ist still a GSD. But due to the fact that white is a color error, one is not allowed to breed this white GSD (even though it might have a pedigree and so on).
The Berger Blanc Suisse is a seperate breed! It has nothing to do with GSDs. At least here in Germany...

If the bitch is not registered with an accepted kennel club, than the pup really shouldn't be registered. But I agree. It is very confusing. If two GSDs hook up and create a litter with a white one, how does that make the white one a Berger Blanc Swisse or however you spell it? A masking gene should not create a separate breed of dog.
I think the SV is all wet on this, and I think the AKC has this right. Register the dogs as GSDs, and just discourage breeding by not allowing them in the conformation ring. Allow them in all other venues. Great pets. Train them, socialize them, take them out and herd with them, do obedience, agility, rally, schutzhund -- whatever floats your boat. But don't breed them. And if you have to breed them, you are breeding for pets, not for conformation show dogs. In the AKC white ones can be bred, and can provide full registration. The white ones just cannot be shown in conformation, which is true of livers and blues.
How does the SV handle blues or livers? Do they have a Berger Blu Swisse?
