Solid Black WGSL??

I was looking over the PDB forums and saw a post about a solid black WGSL from Russia. She was a beauty, but it has me a tad confused. Are there really solid black ones? I know there are obviously in the WL GSD's, but this is the first I have heard of this in WGSL's. Does anyone want to fill me in? Thanks!

Can't answer the question, however, check this dog out: V Voodoo Hartis Bohemia - German Shepherd Dog

He is a working line dog but I have heard that he is being crossed onto showlines. Not really sure what is the desired end result but I think it is possible for blacks to show up in the genetics if dogs like this are being introduced to the lines.

That is sort of my question. Are the solid black pure WGSL or have the had WL mixed into them. I don't know much about genetics or the black gene. But I am intrigued by this for some reason.

I am about 95% sure there are black WGSL.

There are solid black show dogs. Unfortunately the rave is black and red - has been for years. For some reason (?), solid black show dogs are looked favorably upon. They just don't fit the cookie cutter mentality. Go figure.

Yeah, that's the discussion about the elusive dominant black gene. Black is recessive in GSDs but there are rumors about a line of Show Line dogs out of Eastern Europe that carry a dominant black gene. There's good evidence for it, but I think the person on the thread you're talking about may be about to get scammed.

I am going to be honest Emoore, I tried to follow the current thread, but gave up Way over my head! I saw that they had posted that female from Russia...was someone thinking about purchasing it?

I am curious to see how that plays out.... I think it has a 30+ page PDB thread written all over it :-)

I was at an AKC show years ago and there was a solid black ASL dog, which I'd never seen before or since. Gorgeous dog! I haven't seen a black German showline dog before.
