The most desirable color for a German Shepherd is Black and Mahogany or Red. These colors come from Imported German Bloodlines. I also Import German Shepherds from the Czech Republic.
Black and tan is a common color that some clients desire because of a childhood dog that they remember.
Black & Creme was the color of Rin Tin Tin. People that I've met often mention Rin Tin Tin as one of their favorite childhood memories of famous German Shepherds.
Sable comes as both Black Sable and Red Sable. The Black Sable dogs are from Czech working bloodlines, known as DDR dogs. These dogs are used frequently in Police & Military K-9 work. The Red Sable Shepheds resemble a Wolf and this is a more rare color.
