This is now a recent picture, both parents are german shepherd but no papers so there could always be a mix in there somewhere I'd say. The dad is gold in color and the mom Sable, she's super good so far and I'm all about her already 😅What a cutie! Is she a mix? Do you have photos of both parents? That’s a great place to start.
I can see some lighter coloration up her legs, similar to a bicolor leg pattern. But it is hard to tell for sure due to the shade in the photo. She is absolutely adorable though! ♥ Please post more photos when you get your new little one!
That's pretty cool, the secrets of nature I guess. No matter how advanced we are in certain areas there are still mysteries to keep our minds wondering.The white is residual. There is no genetic component creating the white spots in our breed THAT THEY KNOW OF at this time. The chest and toes are the last place to develop color in utero and sometimes they just aren't done cooking. I have a female, well bred from top lines, with white on her chest. Her father, a BSP winner, has white on his chest. I've seen puppies from Ox Iveron with white on them. It's just something that happens. It generally fades as the puppy ages. Sometimes will decrease and sometimes will go away all together. A few friends and I looked into the genetics on this a couple of years ago. Even sent one dog out to test for any genes such as spotting that might cause this. It's just something that happens with no known genetics behind it.
