Trainer says not pure bred. PPFFFTH

The obedience class instructor told me she is not pure bred.
She said she is too stocky, her nose is too short, and her coloration isnt normal.
I think she doesnt really know what she's talking about.

I posted pictures when i first joined and you all said she looks 100%. I'm more prone to believe you guys.

But I thought i would post a few more pictures of her for you.
These were taken the same day as when i posted before.

Can German shepherds have white on them at all? She has a little blotch of white on her chest and under her tail.

My GSD has a small white patch on her chest, and a black spot on her tongue. She's pure.

They are often born with white toes too.

Re: Trainer says not pure bred. PPFFFTH

I copied and pasted into my browser to look at the pictures and I remember this girl. I recall we all praised her as a gorgeous Bi-color. I know I have learned a lot more about the color variations of the German Shepherds since joining this group. Heck, I had never heard of or seen a long coat until we got Clover. I also see a lot of variation in shaping of heads, ears, legs etc in all these pure breds whose pictures are posted. Wonder what he would think about sables and some of the other colorings. I still think the evaluations you received from the group are on target. There is just a LOT of mis-understandings about shepherds (they're viscious, bad with kids etc. etc.) out there and coloring variations are one of them.

Remember, if someone has a problem with you.........it is in fact their problem.

This is Geneva who I believe was the top AKC show GSD for a few years and I think she has a white spot on the chest, you can see it here.

I would inform the obedience class instructor that I am paying her to teach me how to train my dog, not to critique her conformation, especially if her opinion is more opinion than fact.
