That's a hard one. I keep flip-flopping on that. Don't have a GSD yet, but I've tried to imagine what my ideal would look like. I lean more toward the sables... especially the lighter cream-colored ones. But I'd take one of any color right now... or EVERY color! LOL!

Bi-colors always turn my head, and then the very dark sable. Black comes in a very strong 3rd!

I've been blessed to have had 14 GSDs over the past 40 years (8 whites, 1 b/red, 2 b/t, 2 b/t blankets, and 1 red sable), and in my eyes they're all beautiful regardless of color. I guess today the last thing I look for is color and so my vote has to go to ALL OF THEM!!!

I think each is beautiful! My girl is solid black. When I add another, I'd like a bi or very dark black sable. After seeing someone post their stunning blanket back yesterday, that's another I'm suddenly interested in.

Agreed! That's my problem and I've never had one yet! This thread spurred a conversation about color choice with my fiancÚ. We've agreed that we're going with the one that has the best attitude/personality and not focusing so much on color. The more we talk about color, the more we might set ourselves up for a bad match. I have a sneaking suspicion that we'll have a small collection by the time we retire anyway. There's always room for more in our hearts.

To quote Jaws: "We're gonna need a bigger boat." LOL!

I love my domesticated wolfy looking WD;sable. Hoping for a black female from the same lines in the (near) future. I love the wild look in WD and the mystique of a black shepherd.
