So a friend of mine has been seeking advice as she is looking into buying a GSD, and the question came up as to what type of coat Kali has. I'm pretty sure she is a saddleback black/red, but the coat type I'm not quite sure. Her coat lies flat, but is fairly thick with an undercoat, and she has feathering on her hindquarters and tail with a thicker coat around her neck.

I've looked up a few sites on examples of coat types, but I can't really tell if she would be short or more of a plush stock coat. Any opinions based on these pictures? They're the only ones I have at work, so I may need to upload more from home.

Thanks a bunch for your input! :D

How old is she? I ask because they don't get their 'plush' coats (not to be confused with a long coat) until they are a little older. I'm trying to remember about what age but it's over a year.

She does appear to be stock coat in the pics but if she is still a puppy that could change.

This is Gilda in may at 14 months (it was before she blew her coat for the summer). You may be able to tell the difference between yours and her (if not you will see her soon) :) These were taken at the Mckinney location where we meet up.

Ken, your pup is a Long coat. The long hair around the ears are a dead give away.

Plush is used in reference to a stock coat that has a lot of under coat.

Op you have a very nice Stock Coat.

I have a Long Stock Coat, (Course long top coat with under coat)

Hondo is a long coat. 1st picture is of him at 10 weeks or so. 2nd picture is of him at aprox. 4 months. 3rd picture is of him at 1 year, he has blown his coat for the summer, but you can tell he is still a long coat.

Thanks for the examples, guys - that helps a lot! I seemed to get confused with the explanations I found on various sites.

Carla - Gilda is absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to meet her :)

I sure do fancy those plush coats..:wub:
