I have a female GSD. People tell me she's a light sable & a regular sable. I have even had people tell me that she is a mix with a Malinois because she's so light colored (I think this is funny because I know both of her parents and she's AKC registered). She's not the lightest coloring that I've seen but I want to know what color y'all thought she was. :D

She's a pattern sable :) Colouring is black and tan and pattern seems to be a blanket, though she could be considered a saddle pattern

She's a sable with a saddle pattern. Very pretty!

She looks just like Fiona in coloring. Fiona has been called the dog from person of interest. When I tell them, no she is a GSD. They still argue she is a Malinos. Crazy!

She's a patterned sable. That's it.

I would not call her a pattern sable .
Very unusual to have such bright points , near white feet and very whitish inner thighs .

Do you know what her parents were like.

Her coat always looks so different in different lighting. I'm not sure if her coloring has anything to do with this (since I'm still new to a lot of this) she's working line. I had heard that the show line have different coat lengths and (i think) the coloring is a little different. Correct me if I'm wrong. Also, her mom is a Czech import and her dad *i think* is a German import. I'm positive about her but not 100% sure that he is. I will have to find out from my husband's aunt (she owns both parents)

If you showed me that picture without any comments I would look at it and guess that what I am seeing is a very washed out black and tan.

It's a new one on me .

wonder what his pedigree is?

Im new to the whole dog thing, I saw a couple recently at training who had white feet and I thought mutt. But now I do see sometimes there are white points. Not as pretty to me as my girls tarheels and pencil toes.

Is it possible that it is just the lighting. She doesn't seem to have them in the other pictures.

Shadow gets 'has a malinois heritage' thing as well. From the google images malinois do have similarities so I'm guessing that's where it's coming from :-\

To me she has a very classic GSD look, and she's purebred, but her mom was reddish-tan (like Shadow's ears) over most of her body. I'm the same with little knowledge of the intricacies of the various breeds, though.

well as a pup she looks to be sable.
knowing the rest of the pedigree might help , especially the sire's side since he has the same brights.

many times we have had "sable" appearing dogs mentioned on the forum that came from matings with a white gsd in the background.

Sierra's feet aren't white, they're a light cream color. I think it's the lighting on camera that makes them appear white :D I don't have her AKC papers on hand because they're in storage. My husband is in the military so we have left them with my mother in law for safe-keeping. Although, I did find her brother "ZJ" from the exact same litter on pedigree database's website.
