I will always own one. When I first got Molly, I couldn't believe I actually owned a GSD. I have always loved, admired and dreamed of owning one. Now I have 2!
They come in a variety of colors: Black & Tan, Black & Red, Sable(Dark, Black, Red, Silver), White(Automatic DQ for AKC Shows), Black, Blue, Liver, Golden. Yes there are Golden Shepherds.lol. A GSD of any of those colors can be registed as a GSD, but Blue, Liver, Panda, Golden, and White are faults. GSDs can also be Long Coated. Color and coat length do NOT effect the dogs working ability, health, or temperament. There are also different lines: Showlines(American and West German), Working Lines(West, East/DDR, Czech, and a few more) and Pet Lines(Usually dogs from BYBs, or dogs with unknown backgrounds such as shelter/rescue dogs). There are good and bad breeders of all lines. Just as if you were searching for a good breeder of horses, do the same for dogs. I personally like all and wouldn't mind owning a dog from any line(I would get a pet line from a rescue/shelter, my current dogs are from pet lines.) But the ones that I prefer the most are West German Showline, East/DDR, and Czecch. My next German Shepherd will probably be from West German Showlines.
If you have any questions on the breed feel free to ask.
