I was at the shelter today and there was a puppy that had a different coloring on him compared to other Shepherd dogs.I would guess Brindle?There is an older dog that has the same coloring also. I showed some other people some pictures of the puppy and they think the puppy is clearly a pitbull.I know its not a pitbull, My shelter is very good at knowing what breed certain dogs are when they came in.The people I showed the pics too are very sincere that the Brindle color in German Shepherds is extinct and no longer exists.
Here is a pic of the puppy, i played with him today and I have seen Pitbull puppies his age and none of them looked like him.Their facial features are different:
Maybe when he gets older his features will be more distinct.
Here is the older dog of similar coloring:
Yea, the pic isnt the best, but you can see the coloring.
The shelter has had 3 puppies of this same coloring.Does the Brindle coloring still exist?Is there proof of it?Are there any reputable breeders who have this color or breed it?
In case anyone is wondering, I volunteer at the SPCALA Shelter in Long Beach.
