As long as you're not competing in anything, maybe a little hair dye would reverse your luck Wink Smile 


On the good side, a little brown on the bottom parts of the leg won't affect how well the dog can blend into shadows, the dark, etc., so tactically, no problem Teeth Smile

Yhect, where to even start...

I don't know what kind of breeder would charge extra for a particular color, so perhaps the problems with the dog were because of a careless breeder, not because of bleedthrough? ;) White on the chest...big deal. Happens all the time, utterly insignificant, usually disappears unless it's really large. Again, if you're buying a working dog for working reasons, you don't care. Bleeding on legs...who cares? Often doesn't show up at first, either, so one cannot blame the seller unless during his first bath, black hair dye started running down the drain, LOL.

Umbilical hernia- that might or might not be a problem. Would have to be quite large to be a problem. Was it reducible?

Cryptorchidism- how old was he when you had him neutered? Meaning, did you give it time to descend? Were both ever present?

Have you talked to the breeder about your complaints (with the dog- the rest of it has nothing to do with the poor dog)?

I feel sorry for this dog, to be such a disappointment to you. No doubt he knows (not in those terms, but they can read us incredibly well. If you are displeased with him in general, he can surely tell something is amiss).

Susie, yes, I agree- like a modifier of sorts, causing the marking? Interesting but really not super important. :)

Jenni - you know nothing about my feelings and love for my dog. He is well loved just like all my other dogs over the years. I don't know why you feel like you can judge other peoples feelings.
I only mentioned the brown legs, because it was a post that I replied to. I never mentioned the other problems until your comment about that being the only thing wrong with him. Who/what made you such an expert on people and their dogs. I don't in any way feel sorry for my dog, I feel sorry for someone like you who thinks that they know everything about everything and just has to tell the world. You presuppose all sorts of things without really knowing any of the facts. Do you honestly believe that I would own GSD's for over 60 years and not know about umbilical hernias and cryptorchidism.

You and people like you are why I don't like to respond to posts.

what about the "creeping tan" modifier that has not been mapped? Could this play a role?

The dog is a genetic black with more tan bleed through than normal but its not that uncommon.Tan on toes and white spots are even more common but still always a genetic black.

My male GSD has brown bleed through too on the back of his legs that became noticeable when he was around 2-2.5 years old. He just turned 3 in June. He had a white spot on his chest as a puppy that faded for the most part aside from a few white strands. I actually forgot about that until it was mentioned and looked at his puppy photos. Some have said he's a bi-color because of the bleed through but that's not the case. Honestly, I could care less one way or another with the bleed through but did find the post interesting. It sounds fairly common???
