In a former post I wrote about the blue gsd NOT being an approved color! BUT the breeder just informed me that in Germany blue is indeed acknowledged! And steel blue is even approved here in Sweden by dogjudges! However the color is SO rare, that most doubt this to be true! And since Germany is home to the gsd, they should have the right to set the stadards. I don't know the "rules" in other countries for gsd colors?
Like I debated in my previous post about this subject, I don't care what's approved or not, as long as the dog is healthy. But people are spreading false accusations. And this leads to dogs being unwanted :( Really sad, that a dog can be liked based on what some people set as standards.
