A new breed based off blue GSDs, intended to create a dog with a distinctive wolf like look.
According to breed founder Vicki Spencer:
"The Blue Bay Shepherd is a new breed in progress that I have been working on for over 20 years. The first litters were finally produced in March 2011. Some of the foundation animals are from European German Shepherds imported from a top breeder in France with bloodlines from Germany and Holland as well. They are a color known as “Blue” and very hard to find in the shepherd. It has been my dream for many years to develop a dog that would have the willingness to please, the loyal nature and trainability of a well-bred German Shepherd with the extremely good health, loving nature and awesome beauty of their wolf ancestry. That has proved to be very difficult and at times a seemingly impossible thing to accomplish because finding just the right dog has not been easy. I always knew the German Shepherd had most of what I wanted. "
