Whites CAN be registered by the AKC they just cannot be shown as the white color is a disqualification in the breed standard.
K you loose me at shown I have never had to deal with this issue before and what I just found out is making me sick to my stomach with potential health problems with white ones and their temperament not being a dominant they are more skittish

Show means you cannot compete in dog shows. You will still have a registered GSD through the AKC though. If you wanted to enter him into competitions for show, it would be an automatic DQ for color.

It depends on who and how they were bred temperament/nerve wise. But yes, generally any breeder breeding specifically for color often overlook things like temperaments, prey drive, possession, nerves, and health. Some, not all. If they are AKC registered parents, you can look them up on the AKC data base and see what lines were used/bred to get the breeding pair, and if they have had previous litters papered, you can see their family tree as well, do research on the previous litters.

Or post their info here and someone may help you understand what you are looking at.

Based on the website alone, it would be a hard pass for me.

They don’t list the parents full names, so without that, or their AKC number, you won’t have much luck finding the info. Unless someone here experienced can give more information on how to navigate through the AKC site. I’m as layman as they come when it comes to lines, breeding, etc. We have some knowledgeable members here that could provide way more info than I could, hopefully someone will pop in and lend a hand.

Okay...well not to be offensive, but what are you asking then? If you’re going to get the dog, then go for it?

I’d pass also. But I love my black dogs just to be honest.

The website is extremely vague and only consists of one page. None of the parents info or health clearances listed anywhere. On her website she states, 'They are raised for family pets." That alone should be a red flag. The GSD was never meant to be a 'family pet', they are a working breed.

Where do I find the information on akc website

@mike98, if the parents are AKC registered, the breeder should deliver your dog with a full AKC pedigree chart. It will look like a family tree and have names and numbers. Another resource is workingdogs.com, but you will need names or numbers.

When you breed 2 white GSD then you are breeding for color, not for temperament or health. Most if not all buy because they are white. I am not dissing the white and to each their own. I can’t remember if I ever saw a white in a trial. The ones I have seen are skittish, nervy. A lot are dumped at shelters and currently in rescues.
I have to ask the people who have bought the white GSD, why???? I would guess only for color.
The whites are beautiful but I want the whole package.

I agree with everyone’s statements, but overall if you’re happy with the white. And the dam and sire temperament etc, then get the dog if you want it. Its your dog. You have to be happy with her

Nice, look them all up, https://www.working-dog.com/ is an excellent resource. They have a good app for your phone too. Do you have one of these for the Sire? The breeder should have given you an AKC "Litter Certificate" written across the top identifying the Sire and Dam. Maybe he didn't because the Sire is not registered or registerable?
