Both of my pups had a bit of white on their chest and they're both AKC registered. Their parents don't have any white on them either. In a few months time it disappeared but I really liked it!

Don't worry, small white 'patches' are not a negative (check out the breed description at AKC.org). In fact, GSD's frequently get random white hairs as they get older, especially on their muzzle and ruff.

Somewhat common for puppies to have a bit of white on the chest - it usually fades as they get older. Though some adults may retain their white chest spot.

Funny all the misconceptions flying around about GSDs!

I have a purebred female... age four....with a white spot on her chest. Our former shepherd was Black with a white spot on his chest. Also purebred. Never heard a white spot meant not a pure GSD.

I have a bi-color with a chest diamond. She is purebred and it hasn't faded with age. The white comes from a gene one of the parents carry. Onyx also has it on her feet.

the white spot is normal and the weight and age work nicely too.

My boy Moses has a white heart on his chest. I love it as he is such a heart dog, he just wears it on his chest. He is 100% GSD! You can see it on one of his pics in my album.

Never heard that but mine has a pretty big white spot. I love the look of it and hopefully it doesn't fade too much.

Tanner has a white spot on his chest, but he is a purebred(poorly bred one).

He's adorable!! ♥ My pup is 8 months and has a white spot in the exact same spot. He's a sable GSD. I think it's starting to fade a bit though. His dad has one too and they're both pure breeds.
