Default Cream color?

Hello all,

This is my new best friend Max, love him for all his pros and cons!

Just curious, are the cream (seems to be the most fitting term) colors on his legs a reason to believe he is not a pure? Random internet strolling had me reading somewhere this is a sign a GSD is in fact NOT a pure.

Not that it effects my love for him in any way

Looks to be a purebred black & tan GSD to me. Just that the tan is a lighter, more faded color than most.

I agree with Chris. My 2.5 yr old female has a very pale tan, but is in fact a purebred.

Looks purebred to me.

I agree. The lighter colors such as cream and silver are a diluted/faded version of tan. Still a purebred GSD though, just a variance on the color spectrum.

Cute puppy.

He looks purebred to me. I attached a picture of my black and silver GSD I had in high school. I know the diluted colors are not the standard, but I think they can be beautiful.

I vote purebred as well! I happen to have a GSD with very light "tan" colorings. There are various shades of tan from the more red color to lighter cream like mine and yours.
