Unknown German Shepherd?

I have emailed a few breeders about my 4 month old male named ace. He has an odd coloring, I have been told he is Panda, or he has an extreme white spotting gene. What do yall think?

Since Panda's are not very common and you can only get them from a select few breeders, I'm going to say your puppy is probably a mix.

Where did you get him?

Pandas actually aren't that rare anymore. Many Bybs breed them and try to profit off of this 'rare' color when in fact they are becoming less and less rare by the minute just like Livers and Blues.

Did you get your pup from a breeder? If he is a Panda, one of his parents should have also been a Panda since it is a dominant color.

Unknown German Shepherd coat color!

Hey everyone, I have a 4 month old male german shepherd named ace. I got him from people who did not know anything about the parents except they where purebreed GSD. He has an odd combination of white black and tan that no one can explain. I have talked to a few very reputable breeders and one suggestion is that he is a panda GSD, also another idea was that ace has extreme irish spotting. If anyone knows anything about this let me know! Im posting a few pictures of him. I also plan on getting a DNA test sometime soon.

I did not get him from a breeder, a family couldn't take care of him so they gave him to me and they got him from someone else etc. They just told me he is purebreed but he didn't have papers. I am feeling more confident that he is a panda. I am considering getting a DNA test.
