Default Winston - Panda Shepherd

I had joined when we originally got Winston and then day to day life consumed me. I know some people were interested in seeing how he turned out, given his coloring as a puppy though. We have had him tested and he is 100% GSD and our vet believes he is in fact a panda, despite his white not being as extensive as alot of the pictures you find online as he is not piebald.

Anyway, here's some pictures of him from the past months:

He loved the snow:

And those are the most recent as I have, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to get him to sit still at this point. He's always GO GO GO BALL BALL BALL now haha.

The only white he really has left is the white across his muzzle. His chest and overall coloring is a very very light creamy tan, but not really white. We get a lot of compliments on how pretty his coloring is. I think the thing that shocked me the most is that as a puppy his saddle looked like it would cover the majority of his body, but the tan definitely crept up his legs fairly far.

I definitely know now though that when we get another dog in a few years, it will be another GSD. You just can't beat their temperament and personality.

I don't have a pedigree for him sadly. I have paperwork I could file to have him registered with a local place, but never filed the paperwork, as I don't intend to breed him and he is just a family pet. We mainly had him tested to see if he was 100% GSD or if there was some cross breeding in their somewhere =(. I tried to contact the breeder we got him from to get the pedigree information she has online, but she has been unresponsive =(.

He's very handsome I don't know if I'd call him a panda tho. One of his parents could have been a white gsd?

He's definitely not what I would consider a panda shepherd, but he looks like a great dog either way.

Thanks guys =D.

I'm not sure about the white, as when she showed us his pedrigee it was all black and tans. But could be, since she has since become unresponsive. I've since found a better local breeder for our next shepherd, but I am super happy we got him as he is very unique looking =D!

This is not panda. Looks like faded black/tan to me. Pigment/color is very poor so the tan appears almost cream/white, lots of ticking and bleed through, very little color left on the tail, and color is faded/fading as he ages. Very little mask as well makes the face appear white/patterned. I bet he will continue to lose color in the saddle and face as he ages - will have little saddle as a mature adult.

Curious - What testing did you for DNA confirmation?

White doesn't blend. It's a dominant-recessive gene and it will either produce a white dog, or it won't be a part of the dog's coloring.

Winston's just a very light-colored black and tan. There's a guy right here in Austin, with two dogs with almost identical coloring. Very pretty dogs, and I see him walking them together down Parmer about once a week or so.
