Is this black stripe on the paw a representation of a specific color, or is it a GSD standard marking?

Hondo has this stripe on all four paws, and dark hairs going up the back of the legs. I'm curious if this is normal (Black & Tan) coloration, or is it something else.

i think it's coloring. it adds to Hondo being
unique. my dog is blk&red and he has it slightly
on his front paws. when i went to check his
rear paws my dog got excited and started
spinning around, licking me, stepping in place, lol.
so i hugged him, he licked me more and then
he went into the bedroom and jumped on the bed with my GF.

Yep, you should see the other three paws...whoo whee! Now, if he'd just go out and get a job.....

I just tried taking a pic of Molly's trotter but battery flat...she has a similar marking but washed out. Mind you, she is the wonky donkey after all!

Is Miss Molly considered a black and tan?

Miss Molly is considered a black and tan yup! Will just check if there's enough charge to snap a quicky of her paws :)

No, it's not representative of anything. Just a unique marking. All dogs are different with different markings, and subtle ones like this don't change what color the dog is. :)

Ok, gotcha. A lady stopped me at the feed store last night, and swore to me that Hondo was a sable. She said the tell-tale sign were the "tar-heels" on his feet. Hondo does have a unique, sorta washed out coat color as an adult (1 year old) but as a puppy he looked like a standard black and tan pup (with long hair!).

I didn't think much of her conversation with me, some folks just like to talk. From what I understand, in order to have a sable you must have at least one sable parent. Hondo's parents are black and tan and white.

Thanks Chris!

Now I notice, Diabla has the same black marking on his 4 paws. Never thought on them. She is a (quite washed out) black and tan.
