White stripe on his chest - GSD puppy



my purebred gsd has a white stripe on his chest i want to know if it fades when he grows up or is it a problem? and by the way he is 2 moths old

Total German Shepherd:

This is not entirely unusual since the white color has been in the German Shepherd breeds since the very beginning. So it is not a problem - but it probably will not fade.

Remember, hair color is not the most important issue to worry about in a German Shepherd. Things like temperament, health and many other things are so much more important than hair color so I wouldn't worry about it.

As a matter of fact it is very handsome on your GSD puppy and makes him unique. So don't worry about the coat color - it changes as the puppy matures anyway - but focus more on the puppys health, training and temperament.

Good luck with your German Shepherd puppy.

Your boy is so Adorable!!! No big deal on his white marking. Just be careful with his ears, if the cartlage is damaged his ears won't go up. I just love those big German Shepherd ears. He will protect you, its in their blood. Take care of Spike and he will take care of you.
