On another forum, someone mentioned they were considering a solid black German Shepherd because they're generally softer in temperament than other GSDs. I'd never heard (or witnessed) this before and was just curious if there's any truth to it.
No it's not. Many police and military dogs are black. However, I've heard that White shepherds are softer.
It actually was in the context of someone recommending the OP check out white Shepherds for a softer GSD. OP said they had considered white Shepherds for that reason and also solid blacks which made me do a double take.
