Galathiel Also, the alternate registries that a lot of pet stores use will register anything, not requiring that it be proven to be purebreed. Continental Kennel Club, APRI, etc. are not reputable registries.

marbury Mom doesn't have an extensive background? That means not necessarily PB. And shame on whatever breeder sold her pups to a pet store. Cross them off your list for good.

Talked to breeder.. Great news!

We just got off the phone with the breeder and she is pure bred .. The mom doesn't have the extensive background but the dad has a lengthy pedigree..

R-Augustus Gieske < of him below

The mother is black and silver and the grandfather even has some silver on the rear.. Neat stuff I really appreciate everyone's input...I guess the white on the face is just a unique marking.

Harry and Lola Photos below are of Harry at about 9 weeks and 2 1/2 years old.

As a puppy he had quite a bit of white on his chest and his rear toes, as you can see by the photo of him now, the white is still there a little bit but has blended in.

Your pups colour will change also.

HarleyTheGSD I also though of an Australian Shepherd when I saw the photos.
Of course there is a chance that she is a purebred. It's impossible to tell, unless you have information about the parents.
Very pretty pup though!

What I would suggest is either returning the puppy for a refund ( have no idea if they do this or not) or refund of a portion of the purchase price since what they sold you isn't a pb GSD.
Yes, if they sold her to you as a purebred (and if that is I portent to you) I would go back and tell them you want a refund. If its not important to you- she is still very beautiful and still needs a home. I just hope you didn't pay allot

Loneforce Definitely not PB, but very unique. I think she might end up being the best dog you might ever have. She is a cutie. Like everyone said though; stay far away from pet stores to buy pets. Have fun with her and learn for the future purchase for your next dog; hopefully a long, long time from now. I would like to see her as she grows older. I bet she is going to be beautiful!

Gwenhwyfair Yup, collie or when I looked at the pic the first time it reminded me of the white facial markings of our Aussie....
