My first gsd; newbie with the breed, but fast learner!!! My son picked her out, or she picked us; & she was one of two grey pups, not a blue I think; grey w/black tinged fur. More people asked if she was a Norwegian Elkhound, or mixed, which she is akc. One month later, she was light tan, w/black strip down back. Changes during each blown coat;
Now she is 2 yo 04/08/10, & I believe she is a sable, as when the fur is brushed backwards & the individual hairs are two colors.
The breeder registered her as a blk & silver, but if this was her color, wouldn't the black on her back be black to the roots?
Her father was a sable, & many dogs on his side of pedigree are listed as sable or gr?
I have included a pedigree, as there is a pic of her sire & she looks like him. Lanker's Lacey Lady pedigree information - German shepherd dog
& I have posted pics of her at: 7.5 weeks; 12-14 weeks; 22 months; 16 months; & a 2 year pic, if not close-up enough (first time using borrowed camera) I will post closer pics at 2 years.
Thank you in advance, really curious of her color; & if she is a sable, which I believe, are there types of sable ie, silver sable, ect?
Ok, pics of Lacey! (hope this works, 1st attatchments!)
