unique german shepherd colors.

I wonder how they get all of these unique colors in AKC german shepherds. Breeders, Are these unique colors common in breeding.

First Brindle is NOT in the GSD. So, somewhere along the lines, there was another breed of dog in the woodpile. Yes, there were brindle dogs in the foundation stock used to create our breed. But brindle is dominant and it was quickly phased out by simply not breeding the next generation of brindle dogs.

Second, dilutes are recessive. Yes there is always a chance that it will come up in a responsibly bred litter but breeding for color is NEVER a good thing. The fact that they do it on purpose means that they are choosing to breed for a single recessive trait. High school biology will tell you that that is never a good thing.

Third, if you do a bit of searching, you'll see that that breeder is a known puppy mill. If #1 and #2 weren't already proof.

Well I kind of assumed they were probably at some point back mixed with something different. I just didn't wanna come out and start assuming out loud without asking. I done absolutely no research on the breeder. Their page came up on my Facebook feed and I glanced at it and posted here. I am not in the market for a pup. But, even if I were this isn't my cup of tea.
