Man she is a gorgeous dog!! I absolutely love the coloring in her face. What is this color pattern called?
...Ah- so this is called a sable. When I google "sable GSD" I tend to find a lot more gray colored shepherds. Would Kelly be considered a "liver sable" color? Is this a fairly rare coloring?Kelly is absolutely beautiful! She is by far one of the prettiest sables I've seen! Too bad you live in VA, I'd have your wife take some pictures of my pups!
I've never seen a liver colored GSD in person. I google-imaged it and the color seems very similar to yours:Aw, Thank you for the kind words. From what I understand, we won't know what she will end up as they continue to change up to age 3. I don't know about liver sable, it's seems to be more a mahogany color to me.
I was hoping someone on here would be able to clarify that. Much thanks!She's not liver. I think she's just a very rich red sable. But if she were a liver sable, the black would be the part expressing the liver pigmentation. The color dilutes (blue, liver) are the dilution of the black. And yes, there are blue sables, liver sables, liver bicolors, blue bicolors, etc. But they are liver/tan, blue/tan.
