the pup appears to be B/T but may lighten up significantly to what some describe as black and cream, but i doubt it.

where i understand that you guys are saying cream is a shade of tan, i disagree that red is (?). i've seen some dogs listed as red that appear to be just a richer shade of tan... but my dog in unmistakably red...

I also told that her father is a White GSD. Would you still consider her a Purebred? I had someone told me she wasn't

^thats even funnier to me. like a guy who asked if my coated boy was a belgian tervuren. of course i said no but then he replied that its his favorite breed. i could only think that if its his favorite breed, then he should darn well know that my boy isnt one

The pup pictured is a black and tan with the white spotting gene causing white spots on the chest and feet.

Genetically both are "black and tan". Tan pigment can vary from very light (cream/silver) to deep orange red, and is governed by genes located at a different locus from the dog's general color (e.g. sable, black & tan, bicolor, etc...). Regardless of depth of tan pigment, the dog's genetic color is still black & tan.

Also something else that's funny is my ex gf, has a mixed bred GSD and Chow. Her parents and her always said that the dog was part police GSD and that it's a kind of bred, I just rolled my eyes

interesting. i assume pigment is genetic tho? meaning two black/cream dogs arent likely to throw a pup as rich as those photos i linked right?

can a dog be registered as black/red, black/cream etc?
