Default All Pure genes GSD should be allowed in the Show Rings

I think the solid colors - White and black should be allowed in the breed show. Why should they stay away when they are pure genes? What do you say?

No, they shouldn't. There is a reason for a standard -- it is like the blueprint for a building, it shows you how the dog is supposed to look. Color is also important. White has not ever been a preferred color for GSD's even if one of the original dogs was white. The white color is not acceptable for showing anywhere in the world. Liver and blue are also not acceptable colors.

I want to know why, other than "It's the standard!" color is important. I understand some breeds should be a certain color for their line of work, and some colors, like Merle and such that can cause health problems is bred incorrectly should be disqualified.

I think dogs need to stop being judged so hard on looks, and more on healthy, performance, and then looks. In that order.

Liver GSDs ARE German Shepherd dogs. Blue GSD's ARE German Shepherd Dogs.

We accept black but not white.

Why?

Why some colors but not others? And no answering "Because the standard calls for it!" lol
Who actually knows the reasons certain shades of color on a GSD's coat disqualifies it for showing, even if it's proven it's a better worker than any B&T GSD?
