New! GSD Color And Pattern Genetics Demystified

Skip to White Shepherd/GSD Pedigree Collection
The below links are to pedigrees of white and genetic white (meaning dogs that are fawns, ivory, beige, etc., which are genetically whites) out of well known colored dogs and lines. These pedigrees are intended to show that the white gene has been present in many of the very best of the German Shepherd Dog breed since the breed's creation. This research is an ongoing process.

Your contributions will help broaden the knowledge of white and dogs that carry the white gene, and also further prove that the white recessive gene in the German Shepherd Dog does NOT cause color or health problems. The gene has been present in the breed since the breed was first founded, and only became "undesirable" to the mainstream breed associations because of political attitudes based on incorrect beliefs and lack of knowledge of the gene.

My Favorite Informative Web Sites

Color & Coat Genetics of the German Shepherd Dog and White Shepherd Here are articles on the various colors and patterns of the GSD and their genetics, with pictures. There are also articles and pictures illustrating how coat and color change with a puppy's development from birth to adult. A section on the long coat recessive in the breed explains the genetics of this common recessive, and there are illustrations and examples of long vs normal coats. There are also pictures of some of the earliest longcoated dogs in the GSD breed. In addition, there are lists of dilute (blue and liver) dogs and carriers of these dilutions at this site.
