The SV believed white was a serious fault and they believed that faults should be eliminated. Best way to eliminate a fault is to not allow the dogs to be registered. (and to kill them) Whether they were right or wrong about the white coat you have to give them credit for trying to eliminate traits they thought were harmful to the breed.

I wonder why there are so many whites in your area when there are so few elsewhere? Do you have a lot of breeders in your area?

My step-dad had a white GSD Misty in the late 60-early 70's. She was a great dog. I wish I had some photo's of her(nobody took photos back then!). When he married my mom she was about 8 or 9.
He owned a service station and the dogs stayed there most of the time as watch dogs. He had the city impound lot for the police so security was necessary. Once a someone tried to break in and Misty was in the garage. He must have taunted her, either he or she busted through the window on the service door and she chased him down.

|Airman1stclass||Not sure how true this is. But I was told that white gsd are a birth defect, sort of like albino in humans.|

|Okin||To me it the whole white shepherd not being a GSD is really strange. As it was explained to me in a different thread on this subject, according to the SV if there are two SV registered GSD's that have a litter and one of the litter is white that one white puppy is not a GSD and all the rest of the dogs are even though they are genetically identical. It doesn't make much sense to me that the color, not the pedigree of the dog would change the breed.|

|LeCielEstRouge||We just adopted a nine month old white female recently, and she is very sweet but still very much a puppy. She's great with our kids and has bonded really well with them. I honestly don't think coat makes a difference. Ours has a higher prey drive than our blonde male but that could just be breeding. Our male is lazy and older. Lol. Go for it! Find a good breeder or adoption agency and go with what your heart and gut tell ya.|

Nothing wrong with it. If you are looking for a breeder, I can PM you the name of the kennel my pup's Dam came from. Solid breeding program, imho, and the dogs in the lines are pretty amazing.
I didn't go into my GSD search looking specifically for a White, but I couldn't be happier with him and the breeder I got him from is amazing.
