Does anyone know if ASS's ever come in sable, bi-color, or black? There's a discussion going on on another board (not a working dog board, obviously) about this.

Interesting! I, for whatever reason, didn't think ASS's could be sable. Black and bi-colored I could see, but not sable.

I couldn't find pedigrees on the woodsideshepherds website, though, so I wonder HOW 'Americanized' they actually are. :?: :?:

Sable is the dominant color gene in GSD, and can be bred to in order to increas dark pigment in the dogs. No doubt very few ever will show up in the breed ring. Who in their right mind wants their precious ASS dogs to be associated with those horrid working dogs.

Considering the amount of wonderful colours the pet dogs come in....... :p

I'd be more surprised to see a sable, pure German hoghlines dog.

So where do the ASS breeders get the sable dogs they breed to to increase dark pigment? :-k


I just noticed that I put "forbidding" territory instead of "forbidden" in the subject line. I've not been having a good week. :roll: :lol:

Thanks Lynn! I had that site some time ago and lost it with a computer crash.
Even the word Panda Shepherd makes me want to poke myself in the eyes with a sharp stick. :-& :-&
