Oh I know! Shepherds change soooo much in coloring from their puppy coats.. usually they get lighter and more varied though, not darker! He's a beautiful dog. (:

I have heard of sables, not livers though! May have to look into this coloring when I decide to add another Shep to my herd. ;)

Sables usually get darker as they age. Liver coat colours are caused from two copies of a recessive gene. :D

Thank you haileylommen! Beau is actually a liver sable. The liver gives him the chocolate muzzle, nose, and eyelid color. It also gives him the much lighter eyes, though I think yellow eyes are rare even for livers. The liver gene also gives his fur a reddish-chocolate sheen in certain lighting.

The sable gives him two coat colors on every piece of fur. Half is black, while the other half is his undercoat color. It's pretty neat. Being a sable also causes him to go through all kinds of color changes. I think it will be awhile longer before he settles into his 'true colors'. Even then his coat can vary quite a bit from summer to winter. I had no idea what a sable or liver was until I got Beau.

I had no idea that he would completely change from how he looked as a pup. If someone showed me his puppy picture and what he looks like now, I'd swear they were two different dogs!

Nice shots of your two dogs :)

LOVE, LOVE this thread! Such good looking pups!! I recently added a third dog to our family (now we have 2 GSD's, and 1 Belgian Malinios, all rescues). I work with a few GSD Rescues, and I brought my first foster dog home. She was at a high kill shelter, and when I asked about her (she was NOT on the adopt list) they said she was "aggressive," and they planned to euthanize her in the next few hours. However, they could not tell me in what way she was aggressive. She was a "rescue only" so I was able to pull her to foster (after I evaluated her and found a shut down & VERY scared girl). She is probably a little over a year old. We had her 4 weeks, my brother adopted her, she quit eating, drinking, and had severe diarrhea. We picked her back up (3 hours away), and she was suddenly cured once she saw us, and our dogs!! So we kept her! Her name is Stormy Alice, I named her Stormy, my brother named her Alice. She is a black GSD, SWEET, smart, platful, & follows me around everywhere! She has never, ever shown any aggression! I wonder how many other dogs never get adopted because of an incorrect label :( WHEN YOU ARE READY FOR ANOTHER GSD, CHECK YOUR LOCAL SHELTERS, OUR RESCUES HAVE FOUND THE MOST AWSOME GSD'S THERE!!

My other GSD, Skylar, and Stormy playing, they do this a LOT!

I made this sign for the rescue page, but I spelled "aggressive" wrong, it is still a cute picture and I can just blame the dog for the spelling ;)

I have never heard that statistic before! Explains why my dogs are so wiped out after swimming! My newest GSD likes to swim the most, but they all will get in the pool. Your dog really enjoys himself by the look of the pictures!

Yes, my three (2GSDs and spaniel) all enjoy the water. It's such good exercise for them.:)

They are all doing well thanks. Beau (my spaniel) has days where his mobility isn't so good, but the swimming seems to be helping. And for 13 years old, he is doing really well. I am taking him twice a week to the Dog Spa. I will have to get a photo to send to you. He looks so sweet wearing his little cap to protect his ears. Thanks ever so much for asking. :)
