We are picking up this little guy in two weeks and I’m so excited!
I really wanted a black sable GSD like his father, but this pup had the best temperament for our family. I’m curious to see what he might look like when he is mature. Any ideas?

Also, his breeder said he may have a reverse mask, which Ive never heard of...

Pictures from Day 1, 1 week, 1 month, 6 weeks.

Thanks for sharing!
His mom is a silver sable. Her line has a lot of whites as well as Black and Tans/cremes/reds.
Dads line has dark sables and blacks.

Nice looking pup!! I'm partial to reverse masks as you can see in my avatar. I'd never heard of them either til I came here and posted Heidi's picture. She was a rescue and gets lots of attention out in public because of her coloring.
Welcome to the forum and hope you post more pictures as your puppy grows up.

Not sure if the link above works, but Lord Vom Gleisdreieck was a well known GSD in Europe with a reverse mask back in the 1980s.
That might actually be a picture of him in post # 2 above.

As far as I can tell, the reverse mask goes back to Lord's Grandsire. Cliff mentioned that once many moons ago and I find it to be pretty accurate.


Maybe being linebred on Ex vom Riedstern set that gene in that line.

Wow! I never knew Lord was a patterned sable. I always thought he was a black and tan.

I found a discussion online where it was mentioned that Lord passed at 15 years old. That video is from the 80s.

His last litter entered on working dog was 1995.
