Unusually Colored Dogs Part 3 – Panda German Shepherd
Recently, this dog showed up in the Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles. I’m skeptical of most so-called “Panda German Shepherds”, but this girl looks like the real thing. Her name is Stella von Springe, she’s 2 years old, and was adopted very quickly!
They do call her a mix on her profile, but she’s far more convincing than most Panda Shepherds. Take a look at the shape of her ears and nose. Combined with the brown eyes, I’d be willing to accept that she’s pure GSD.
After seeing Stella, I went off on a Google Image search looking for more. This dog looks like he could be a pure German Shepherd. It looks like he has brown eyes, which matches up with that idea. It’s interesting how similar his markings are to Stella’s.
Here’s another “Panda German Shepherd”. This one I have some doubts about. The blue eyes suggest that he might have some Husky or maybe Australian Cattle Dog in his blood, although the facial structure is strongly influenced by his GSD heritage and he looks too large for an Aussie to make sense.
This puppy was labeled as a Panda German Shepherd on Pinterest, but I wasn’t able to find any more info or pictures. She’s gorgeous, but she’s definitely a mix. I’m putting my money on Husky. Those eyes are truly fantastic, whatever she is.
I’d love to get a German Shepherd eventually. Oddly enough, they seem to be Quincy’s favorite breed. He always makes a b line to them at the park and tries to play. It’s probably because I boarded one for a few weeks when Quincy was younger. Whatever the reason, I’m sure he’ll be excited when the time comes to add another dog.
