thanks guys :) i thought so as well, and yes even his tongue is all different colors. How would i find out if he is a dutch shepherd?? I was afraid of him being not fully bred so i got a dna test on him and the only breed in his genetic makeup is german shepherd. And you cant tell here but he has the distinct black saddleback.

maybe he is a mix of german shepherd and dutch shepherd..Maybe 'dutch' is to close to german to show up in a dna..???

Idk, it says that that is a recognized breed in the database they use. and another thing i wanted to ask about is i have heard there are no purebred German shepherds that are brindle anymore, i wanted to know how true that is cuz I've got one :) they say its more of a genetic mutation

Looks like a GSD to me. Just because a dog is brindle doesn't make it a Dutch Shepherd.

He is beautiful! (both pups are)


I had read on here a while back that brindle was no longer in german shepherds, but I'm wondering if that is changing? I've been reading that more and more are cropping up and they are actual german shepherds. Kinda like the mutation in panda shepherds?

That is definitely a brindle pattern. Do you have a pedigree? Where did you get him? As far as I know, brindle can't make a come back. It was a dominant gene that was bred out of the breed.

Correct. But it sure indicates a strong possibility that it's not a purebred GSD.

they say it is possible, they label it a genetic mutation and it can be full bred

Can you provide documentation or a link to that information? That's the first I've heard of that.

Do you have his pedigree?

Regardless...he's gorgeous!

Those DNA tests are nowhere near 99% accurate, just a head's up.

I'm not saying he is or isn't, I'm just saying that they're notoriously inaccurate.

Personally, I see all GSD aside from the mystifying pattering... but man oh MAN, what a STUNNING dog :eek: I LOVE that his tongue matches :wub:

thanks for the heads up :) but they said that if he has anything it would show up and all across the board its just gsd.... and thanks about my boy, the tongue started out as one tiny spot :)
