My first German Shepherd was a Bi-Color. So, I'm partial to that color (okay it's my favorite!).
After that it would be Solid Black/Sable (I love both colors..can't pick between them, lol) then Black & Tan and Black & Red.

I think a large problems with whites is the people that breed them ... being a fault in almost all aspects of the show/working world (note I said ALMOST), that leaves very few "good" breeders producing whites. A poorly bred dog is not only prone to health issues but temperament issues as well. I have NEVER met a white GSD that did not have some kind of fearful or nervous temperament. It also brings to questions the ethics of REWARDING a breeder for producing sick or fearful dogs for the sake of money or coat color alone.

That being said, I know here in Colorado there is a rescue that works with just white GSDs, and they always have a ton of great dogs up for adoption Like Max said, no good dog is a bad color.

My personal favorite, black sables! I actually am on the waiting list for one of Spartanville's upcoming litters, I am very excited to be getting a gorgeous black sable male in the next 7-9 months

My favorite is black sable... and I liked them before they were cool.

But really, I think all of the standard colors/patterns are beautiful. I even like blue.

I tend to prefer a lot of black, especially on the face.

My heart dog was a black and tan, my first shepherd was white. I love shepherds of all colors but my heart belongs to those two (three) colors.

i now also love sables, specifically the ones that are really dark or look wolfish

Dark masks and faces <3
