Blue Bay shepherd?

I hope this is the right place. I tried a search and found nothing. Does anyone have experience with or knowledge of these dogs. Or a possible link to past forum discussions. http://bluebayshepherds.weebly.com/

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. "

LOL! Its new so its not yet an AKC Foundation breed. Since its rare, I would bet no one on here has one.

What applies to the GSD, applies to the Blue Bay since it a GSD derived breed.

Speaking of wolf-like appearance, this is uncanny:

No, she was taken home at 6-8 weeks of age after she gained 6 lbs. According to the testimonial, the pup was bigger than the adopter's resident kitty!

so they are mashing together Husky's, GSD's and what are possibly wolf hybrids. There was another thread on them a while ago. I hope you aren't looking at this as a potential breeder?
