i wrote her yesterday said there was husky in her dogs and and she wrote me and said,

"hello, these ARE full blooded German shepherds. both parents are full blooded and i would not lie and say they were if they were not. if you have never heard of panda shepherds or seen the other colors out there fine, but please educate yourself on the matter before you write a email as such. thank you! ashley"

The puppy that looks like a husky has blue eyes. I always *dislike* it when anyone uses the word RARE.

yeah , they are cute. i love the black and white one, but i would'nt pay that kind of money for a gsd/husky cross. my last dog was a gsd/husky and i paid $25 for him.

I have a siberian husky and to me it looks more malamute (the eyes to me say a mal) and I have 3 shepherds and I also know what panda shepherds are and they are not that, a panda is black/white/tan and hense the name panda they do remind you of a panda not these guys

Keep on lookin'!

1. "Panda Shepherds" aren't a recognized Shepherd variant and IMO anyone breeding them is waving a big red flag over their head.

2. These don't even look like Panda Shepherds, they appear to be Husky or Malamute mixes.

I would say anyone selling sleddog mixes and claiming they're Panda Shepherds is waving not one but two red flags. And the third red flag (I guess that one's in her mouth?) is that they're CKC registered. Unless she's in Canada and I see she's not, CKC refers to Continental Kennel Club which is the registrar of puppy mills and backyard breeders with breedings so dubious that not even the AKC will register them.

Aside from the issue of spending that much money for a mixed breed dog, please don't encourage this kind of fraudulent backyard breeding operation with your money, even though the puppies are very cute. I'm sure you can find an equally adorable mixed breed puppy (or GSD for that matter) in rescue or elsewhere.

she could argue all she wants if she just had the pure whites and the black and white... but the tan and white one gives it away.

maybe she was sold two "panda shepherds", feels stupid that she fell for it, so it now trying to find others that are equally as dumb.

OR

maybe she thought her panda shepherds bred, but the husky from next door got in on the action too.

haha, and the nerve to tell you to educate yourself. if anything i could see someone passing a gsd / cattle dog cross as a panda, but huskies are so obvious.

btw, ive never seen a tan/white malamute... so my vote remains husky.

It's a red flag party for the whole deal.


Cute puppies. And I can't tell you how many times I have met people with dogs who are obviously mixes who have sworn up and down that they are pb german shepherds because that's what they paid for.
