Anyone knows a White GSD titled with IPO3/SchH3?

I am just very curious because some friends comment whites are not as much of GSD as other colors. Also, does anyone know any white GSDs currently serving in police/military? Are whites even allowed to enter IPO/SchH competitions? Are there working line whites around? I know there are lots of blacks in working lines, but it is weird considering both white and black are recessive genes, why blacks ends up being "more of a GSD" if there is such a thing lol? Thanks, very interested to know.

I placed a WGSD with a local LE. Dog was top in county for apprehensions 3 years in a row.

Common no. Possible yes.

Out of curiosity, is that white born from parents of white predigree or is he/she born from IPO/SchH/K9 parents who just happen to carry white gene?

white is not a color like black....a white dog is genetically another color, but has an additional gene that masks or covers teh genetic color.

In addition to the temperament difference from traditional colors, the whites I researched while puppy-hunting all have higher than average weights and lots of them are over-weight according to breed standard. Furthermore, I have not met a white with sloping back, all the ones I have come across have straight backs while almost all traditional colors I have run into have sloping backs. Whites are almost like a different breed except without a standard.

I have known a few white German shepherds all range in temperaments and no different then the very distinct character a German shepherd has.

Have never seen or heard of anyone getting a white in a litter. If a serious working line breeder has had one, they don't publicize it on facebook! In Europe, I would think it would be culled, even today - BUT I DON"T KNOW THAT FOR A FACT - it is an assumption!

I would have to assume that there has never been any desire to produce a white WL shepherd, especially considering that white is actually nixed from the breed standard. I'm sure they end up showing up (as gsdsar mentioned), but I wouldn't imagine there's a niche for it.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.
