I was reading a thread about DAs *i think* new GSD, and they were talking about the sables, and the golds, and the blacks, and im like.... whaaaatt??? So I would like to see pictures and get someinfo on what makes these colours these colours, because, TBH, they all look the same to me!!!

    Last looks like a liver sable

    GSDs come in: black and tan, black and gold, black and silver, black, white, black sable, gold sable, liver sable, sable, bi-colour, liver, blue etc etc

    The dominant show colour is black and tan/gold though sables are starting to come through more and more.

    Only a complete dimwit would think all sheps look alike. Just IMO

    Rufus is a sable and hasn't stopped changing colours yet.

    Good post Occy showing pics of all the variations. As I was scrolling through the pics I thought "There'd better be a bloody White in here."

    MMM ..... Sheppies. I love them all. *love emoticon*

    Sigh.... Oh how I love German Shepherds. GSDs, how old is your white one? Spirit, I think? She's absolutely amazingly beautiful

    Thanks Masha. She's rather special that little girl of mine. Spirit will be 2 on the 6th of April.

    Here's a rather lovely photo of her ....

    And i dont think ALL shepards look the same. I have noticed Minute differences in thepatterns of the shading. I only asked this Q to figure out what the different colours were called and what made them that colour.

    I think what Occy was trying to say is that the markings on two shepherds are never the same, and all you need to do is look at them and you can see that. Not to mention the shades of tan/gold can change between dogs as well.
