In spite of some bad publicity for his aggressive behavior, the German shepherd boasts a steady temperament if socialized early as a puppy. I’ve become a great fan of this breed even though I never intended to become one simply because of its striking good looks and versatility.
They physically look big and bold, but fiercely loyal and ferociously sweet making them truly man’s best friend.
5 Things You Should Know about Black German Shepherd
Are you considering a black German shepherd dog? This post will aim to demystify the myths that circulate among this dog breed. And it perhaps offers some useful information about this black beauty.
The Black German Shepherd and the German shepherd mean the same thing?
Most people believe that the Black German Shepherd is a altered breed from the German shepherd. This is wrong.
Let’s get one thing cleared up- the German Shepherd is just one of the colors available for the German shepherd breed of dogs. Other colors available for the breed include black and red, black and cream, black and tan and black and silver.
When they become black, the color is due to their parents’ genes.
Are German Shepherds born black?
Well, there are two ways in which the puppies may be born black. The puppies may be black if there are two black parents. On the other hand, if the genes inherited by the puppy are double recessive solid black genes, then the puppy will be black.
Can standard German shepherds (not black) reproduce Black German Shepherd puppies?
As said earlier, their parent’s genes/DNA material determines the color of the German shepherd puppies. Therefore, standard German Shepherds can give birth to solid black puppies. However, the parents must possess the recessive gene for solid black.
Note that even the solid black patterns have small areas of tan hairs on some areas of their bodies such as the area between the toes, around the tail and near the rectal area. It’s also important to know that whereas the true coat of a German Shepherded can be determined at about 8 weeks; black German shepherd puppies are born black and remain black through adulthood.
Are they Pricey?
The Black German Shepherds are a unique breed and quite rare which makes them costly especially if they are the kind with long luxurious coat. They also have a wonderful nature because of their unique color and traits. If you happen to know someone who doesn’t want to keep their German shepherd (perhaps their child is allergic to dogs or if they’re moving), then you might be lucky to get one for free or at a cheaper price.
The price of a Black German Shepherd may vary depending on where you get her, what we train the dog to do and the breeding quality. A puppy may cost $700 to 2000. Keep in mind that these prices do not include expenses for food, veterinary care, and supplies, which may be equal or exceed the cost of the puppy every year.
This valuable breed is worth the amount but you need to beware of bad breeders and dealers.
