Should I breed my black and tan GSD to a White male GSD?
According to what I've read, you have whelped many litters of pups, so I ask you this question: What do you think would happen if I breed my beautiful tan and black female with a white male? Is it advisable? Or could some really strange things happen?
Thanks in advance, Rich
The WHTE GSDs is really not a normal GSD. In my opinion it should be a breed onto itself called white shepherds. These animal has been selectively bred for one and only one reason - their color. This has resulted in the working drive having been bred out of the dogs.
Those who point to web site that advertise white GSD's as being Search and Rescue dogs or even claim that they can be sport dogs (I.E. schutzhund) are misleading and not truthful about the limitations of their breed.
The fact is just because someone takes their white dog to a S&R group does not mean their dog can do the work or even that the group is a reputable S&R group. I have written on my web site about "TRACKING THROUGH DRIVE" and pointed out that more than 50% of the S&R groups in this country should not be called S&R groups. They are simply well intentioned people who take their pets out and try to train. They don't understand the work nor do they have correct standards for the dogs they accept for training.
And as far as personal protection goes - well it doesn't happen. I would willingly let any white GSD owner send their dog on me (without any protective equipment on) from 100 yards distance. I will drive any white shepherd from the field.
So if you want a pet there is nothing wrong with this breed. If you want a working dog - look someplace else.
