6 months Wavy Coat?

Hi can anyone here tell me if my 6 month old female puppy will lose her wavy back coat and if she will be a long haired gsd dog? Please help, thanks. Photos attached.

interesting waves and oh so shiny! Your gal might not be long haired but might be plushy. I look forward to seeing how she grows into her coat.

Looks long haired to me. Our younger dog, long hair, had the same waves at that age.

Full GSD or Not?

I was walking her the other day and another random dog walker asked me if she was a full GSD dog because of her wavy back hair? I replied of course she is but after I went home it made me a bit paranoid about it. What do you guys & gals on here think? I have attached more pics.

Yes, she is a long coat... the waves will go away as her coat lengthens over the next year.

Or not! Cava is almost 11 months old and her curls are showing no signs of going away.

She definitely looks like a purebred longcoat GSD. Absolutely beautiful!

This was Cava at about 6 months old:



The fur along her back is slightly less curly now, but it does still curl quite a bit.

Tilden was wavy well over a year. He didn’t even get grinch feet or a fancy tail til two.

So we’ll see where she lands..... just like her weight

Small, Cava, stay small. Her tail is ridiculous, and has been for a long time - she has the longest tail fur of any of our coaties. Actually, of any GSD I've ever seen. And she is just starting to get hairy hobbit feet but it will be awhile before they're as furry as Keefer's or as Halo's were.
