Most German Shepherd puppies are born looking like little black rats, even those who turn out
like Sonya above.
The puppy on the left is retaining a black blanket with silver and tan points (like Johan). The puppy on the right will be mostly tan with a little silver and a black saddle (like Sonya, Elka or Malcolm). Both will keep their black muzzles.
This puppy has a standard coat referring to its length. (He also retained his black blanket with silver points.)
(Johan had a standard coat with a black blanket. Sonya, Elka & Malcolm are tan with black saddles.)
Although the types known as coats do not fit the standard, they are very well though of for their intelligence and extremely easy trainability. Many are used in search & rescue and aides to the handicapped. We think they are wonderful. Worf is a coat.
