back to the reverse mask ---
the hobo dogs --- I have had several dogs , usually male, that have been born with
similar facial markings -- sables - old heerding lines - pure bred - a well managed ,
Blondi - a sable dog who could have had more pigmentation.
did we see a picture of YOUR dog OP?
meant to add this -- purebred is a relatively new experiment , which may
continue or need to be abandoned if the dog is to have any purpose - other than
pleasing cosmetics exterior and suitable pet.
it has always been the custom that dogs needed to contribute -- work --
be a working partner - whether herding , guardina or turn-spit even.
so in the early days , if you wanted to have a look at the von Stephanitz tome
you would see a cynologic study - his forte , was data mining and compiling .
you would see indigenous working , herding, farm dogs which were the genetic base
or foundation for the dogs that were unified into the recognizable GSD , which was
created for EXHIBITION - a unified , breed as a national achievement .
in the background there may have been "Hungarian" (historical ) Mudi - type
or even the Swedish shepherd farm dog the Vallhund.
the Vallhund does have this signature reverse marking that we see on the "hobo"
we have the tools , we have DNA , we have the canine genomic maps -
no husky --- that is a wild swing away from a purpose
