Default update on my tri-color GSD Fritz

Been awhile since I posted pics of my awesome pup.

*oversized pictures removed by moderator - maximum picture posting size is 800 x 600, yours were twice that size. Please resize your pictures and re-post.*

We just finished his last rounds of puppy shots. He's just about 6 months old.
57lbs.

*removed oversized picture*

Its amazing how truly smart these dogs are.

Why? So they can have different looking dogs? did you have in genetically tested or did he come from a breeder with Panda's?

Yes, he had all blacks, whites, and Pandas in his lines.

His grandpa Apache was a Panda as well.

he does not look like a panda but rather a dilute black and tan
pandas have very bold coloration and his black saddle is very faded as is the tan in his coat
he is interestingly colored but certainly not breedworthy by any means
do you have his pedigree?

The Only thing I have is his AKC papers....I'm only going by what the breeder's and fellow gsd owners are telling.

i always thought you couldn't register panda as a color with AKC. they don't have a color code for registration for panda on their site. https://www.akc.org/breeds/german_sh...r_markings.cfm

also my breeder misrepresentd my dogs color. they don't always look at birth like they grow into. i was sold a silver sable that turned into a tan sable.

while color is the last thing to consider in breeding....this is a "disqualifying" color according to the standard for the GSD. There is too much white, the pigment is not strong, ie pale colored....

Hips, elbows, working ability and temperament - stability, nerves, social and environmental - are all more important for breeding, a dog bred because of color - especially one deemed "rare" which is actually a disqualification from breedability standards - is taking the breed down a path removing it from what a GSD is all about.

I am sure he is a sweetie, and you love him....and he is a great pet. But breeding should only be done with dogs who are proven to be of excellent type and character with all health clearances and demonstrated to have the workability desired by the standard.

I doubt that the OP will return. Some folks on this board need to show a little restraint and sensitivity when responding to posts.
