Re: Gray german shepherd
In Germany, the word used to refer to sable is "Grau", which means gray. So Germans calls sables "grays".
Over here, of course we call them sable. But if you hear the term "gray", especially if being used by a European, it probably means sable.
Of course it's possible for people to use it to refer to a blue, since really blue is a gray color. But that would be an inappropriate usage since the technical term is blue.
And yes, blue/tan, liver/tan, blue sable, liver sable, solid blue, solid liver, would all be registered as just blue or liver on AKC papers.
