my understanding is they are a lighter version of red sables. These guys may very well be those shepherds you see that just have the mask but no other coloring except blond.
Before I got my girl and knew more about the colors I emailed a breeder about a cinnomon shepherd. Turns out all it was was a reg tan sable all they were doing was trying to get more $ out of a common color by calling it something else. And as a byb he still said I was un sutable to buy one of his pups :shrug:
A blond sable?
A sable who blows bubbles in her water dish, eats everything but food, and uses her good looks to get herself out of trouble, LOL.
I have a couple of "blond" black and tans.
I think the term BYB gets thrown around a lot. There are breeders that many refer to as hobby breeders that aren't necessarily doing things such as obtaining schutzhund titles, etc but are doing health clearances and breeding an annual litter out of their one sire/dam. These hobby breeders do tend to screen homes.
