I dont agree with people purposely breeding pandas but I do find them attractive.

I think they are fairly cool looking, but to me they don't look like a GSD at all. Just like a border collie mix. Really makes me mad seeing people purposely breeding for this!

yuck. It is one thing not to cull a dog due to aesthetics, but to show them?

Panda is a genetic mutation. there was one person on there that had one but I don't see her on anymore.

My understanding is that this is not the first time a "panda" has popped up in a litter but they were always killed before.

I don't think everyone looks at them and says "yuck", but putting that aside, if she can show them, why not? I mean really, what's the harm?

Culling or hiding away a dog like what we now know as the Panda doesn't help anyone. Might as well study them and learn something new about genetics, DNA etc. if you can.

If a Panda is a genetic mutation from a German Shepherd, does that then make it a new independent breed?

Pandas look like dogs you see down at the shelter. To me they look like mixed breeds. Like a Husky x GSD or something like that. Never really cared much for them from the pictures I've seen.

I don't think so. Isn't dwarfism a genetic mutation? A dwarf GSD wouldn't be considered a different breed.

I am not saying "yuck" with regards to the dogs themselves, but the idea of showing them.

Why not? If your breeding program was producing dogs with two tails, are you going to take them out and show them? I see you have white dogs. I do not have anything against white dogs, they have been around since the beginning. And white dog fanciers have made a place for themselves in the UKC and were accepted to show them, etc.

I see this as different. I am not completely convinced that this happened out of pure GSDs. But even if it did, the idea of breeding for this is repulsive, that is what is yuck.
