GSDlover143 I don't know who his parents are. I actually got him from someone who didn't have the means of taking care of him. Wish I knew though!

Jax, yours was the pic I saw when I searched for blanket backs that made me think, "hmm, OP's dog could be a blanket!" :-) Pretty lady you have there!

DaniFani What did your pup's parents look like, and the dogs in his pedigree? That will give you a good idea what he will turn out like. Below is my guy and his parent's and uncle. I know he's bicolor and will look like the two bicolors in his pedigree, but only because of the pedigree.

Father is top left, mother top right, my pup bottom left, uncle bottom right. Mother's line has bicolors, father is dark sable, with mostly dark sables in his pedigree.

I just searched "blanket back" and there are lots of threads with puppy pics and then adult pics. The one above shows some blanket backs, and the pups look similar to yours, maybe? So maybe he could be a blanket? Lol, I don't know. It's so hard to look at a GSD pup and predict what they'll be. There is so much variance even within the different coat types. Blanketback/saddleback/bicolor/sable/black sable/red sable/light sable/black and silver lol. And THEN there are people that claim something is a bicolor that others say is def isn't a bi but rather a black and tan. The same with black sable vs dark sable. Is there any other breed with that type of craziness within it for color?!

The best thing to do is look at the parents. Do you know what his parents looked like?

Thanks I was wondering the same thing. I have never seen a bitch stripe on a blanket back.
