Awww he looks like a mean cuddly bear. LOL.
Means the dog looks like a long haired cuddly teddy bear Cujo's dad was plush coated. As far as I know, all plush coated GSD's have only one coat, not 2 (undercoat and top coat), but don't quote me on that, I could be wrong.... maybe there's some double coated dogs with a plush topcoat, I've never seen em though. It's a genetic thing.Connie Sutherland said:Wow! He is gorgeous! What does \"plush-coated\" mean?
So plush literally means \"long hair with undercoat\" then?? Interesting. Learn something new every day!Jenni Williams said:Plush-coated is a \"long stock coat\" or a dog with an undercoat, whose outercoat is just longer than average. It is not a total disqualification like long hair because of the presence of the undercoat. That's what's necessary b/c GSDs are supposed to be weatherproof. He was one of 3 like this out of a litter of 9. You never know when it will crop up; there must be 2 genes for it in the parents for it to occur. He could be bred w/out producing any coated dogs if he were bred to a dog w/out the gene, or w/only one. So, there could be a short-haired dog w/the same likelihood of producing coated dogs as Marek. Neither of his parents are coated.
Mike, Will says he looks like something from Fraggle Rock, or a really angry Muppet. :lol:
Hear that Jenni? Your boyfriends can't hide from you anymore!susan tuck said:People used to say \"plush coated dogs track better\".
So what is Unit like?Her temperment?Alicia Mertz said:Jenni - congrats. I'm usually not a fan of the plush coats, but he is very attractive. And I like his dam. I've seen her up close and personal, and she is a very nice bitch.
Can't wait to hear what he's like when you get him home!!
I love that look. He is beautiful!Jenni Williams said:\"Gentlemen,\" I am NOT trying to find a boyfriend 8) . ...Susan, from all I've read, they shed LESS THAN or equal to stock-coated dogs. Many people with both say their coated dogs shed less, maybe because the fur is not as coarse and heavy as a shorter coat? It's possible; my fluffy boy's shedding goes totally unnoticed b/c Caleb has such black, coarse, heavy hairs...all over everything...
:lol: :lol: :lol:Jenni Williams said:I asked Will what he thought-\"I don't give a shit about hair; I care about teeth!\" :lol:
I didn't get to see her working or anything, Greg. Wish I had... When I picked up Jaeger three years ago, the people I got him from had her. She was in their house. She allowed me in, sniffed me, and then watched quietly from the other side of the room as I \"met\" my pup and did all the paperwork. I do remember that she seemed very good natured but serious, and she was absolutely stunning. Large female...nice pigment.Greg Long said:So what is Unit like?Her temperment?
