sables are often about the same color as at birth. sable is sable is sable.
Sabis mom and AustinIllini like this.

To the OP, GSD are a very popular (and commonly found) breed. I would run away from this litter! The “breeder” does not even seem confident in identifying her own litters colors.

Here are pictures of my sable pups from around 8 weeks old till now. I just took these photos today! They are 9 months old. (Ignore their weird face, I’m holding a treat & they always make this face in anticipation)

They are darker sable and were the only two that dadk in their littler. Their mom as a dark sable and their dad was black and red. We saw up to date pictures of a previous liter (they were a repeat).

Their siblings were more of a lighter sable as puppies. I’ve attached pictures of a GSD I follow on Instagram whose dog was a lighter color sable pup like my dogs Litter mates where.

Unsure of their colors now (we visit the breeder next week & they kept one) but I will update when we know how they look now. Not much different then the posted pics of the other dog I suppose. They also had one bi color in the litter.

The pups should still have some markings regardless if they are sable, blanket or bi color I believe. I’m not an expert but they do not even look like GSD puppies to be honest.

I agree that these are not well bred pups and question whether or not they are purebred.

In the first picture, I would imagine the larger feet are the mother of those 2 pups. She seems to have white feet. Is that female purebred? I know that GSD's can have white feet, but it seems odd they would breed one with those markings. I could be wrong about that, but I would think it would not be desirable for a breeding female.

I, too, would be leery of buying from this person. Seems to be very much a back yard breeder to me.

Are the parents health tested for the diseases that can plague GSD's? Do they have passing x-rays for hips and elbows? Do the pups come with any health guarantee?

Why not?? 2018 FCI Bundessieger has a big white spot on his chest. As does his daughter who just stole the big dog's bone behind me. Her sister had a white foot but that seems to have faded as she's growing.

now, obviously the breeder in the original post is not top notch up to standard but that white spotting doesn't mean they shouldn't be bred.

As I said, I didn't know, so thanks for that clarification. Our older dog has a white patch on his chest, so I'm aware that they can have white.

I would think that multiple bright white feet in an adult dog might not be the most desirable, (probably wrong about that, too), but especially if the dog hasn't proven itself in performance. But then, I would think that no animal that hasn't proven itself should be bred, no matter the coloring. Just my 2 cents worth.

A dog that hasn't proven itself is a totally different topic than spotting. Again, I think the breeder on this post is a backyard breeder, no matter what they've told the OP about providing police dogs.
