Look at this face and those ears! Just because she is black doesn't mean she isn't a GSD!









Racists I tell you! :p

I loved the look of my black GSD, but heard "he must be part lab" his entire life. It did get old.

Not sure I see much if any lab. Ears are full, erect and pointed. Lab mixes usually rounder, soft or floppy ears. Also muzzle too long and narrow. Lab's more squared and shorter. I also have a solid black GSD and I've seen a few with the white star on the chest. Good looking girl. That last picture is too cute.

She looks like a PB black lab to me.... oh yeah... definitely.... oh wait.... could be a husky mix..... nope nope thats not right either..... MUST be a chihuahua mix... yup thats it. Chihuahua mix. no no no..... poodle... I mean just look at her! DEFINITELY poodle lab mix. Yup. uh huh.

Some people.

She's a gorgeous dog. We have a solid black male GSD/border collie mix with a white patch on his chest. He looks PB GSD except for that white. We've gotten the chihuahua mix comment about him before and the lab mix comment. Some people are just out of their minds.

I understood it before her ears came up, but even now when we meet somebody new they always have to ask what she is mixed with. When we tell them that she's a GSD, they always look shocked. Some even argue with us! "German Shepherds don't come in that colour!"

The cable guy came over to hook up our cable and as she greeted him he said " oh what a nice black lab you guys have".

I mean, we know what she is, and regardless she's still sweetheart and she loves to work and play!

We get the same thing with Dakota all the time. Most people think she's part lab. Not many people believe that she's purebred. When I tell them, some look at me like "yeah, right, you have no idea about dogs, do you?". It does get old after awhile.

I completely understand about the black shepherd thing. When I first took Jamie Lee to the vet they said "What breed is she". I told them GSD and they looked at me like I was insane. I told them she is black purebred German Shepherd. I had to show them her papers. :confused:

Some people just assume that GSDs only come in the classic blk/tan combo.
