Is it possible to have a bitch stripe that looks like this on the tail? He already has the extended b-stripe down his back all the way to right above his tail. He has so many different markings with grey and white that I haven't seen on many other shepherds before! What are some of these other markings called? 15296056514135721882056514469565_1529605683626.jpg

Hmmm . . . makes me wonder if your dog is a patterned sable. Do you have any tiny itty baby puppy pictures? Or a pedigree? Pictures of the parents?

Sadly I know nothing of when he was a puppy or his parents.. I got him from a guy in Utah when he was 9 months and he recently turned 2 years. I really wish I could test for his breeding lines and such. But I do think he has a hint of sabling or something!

Thank you, I quite like it as well. Especially because I love both black and tan, as well as sable and it's almost like I got a mix of both! ❤

Pretty common in the BYB/mill dogs I deal with around here. Tons of black and tans who's owners are convinced they are "rare" sables.
Other then on her actual ribs almost all of my current dogs black is not black. I don't now why it happens but it does.
