    So, if a dog is working bred, white GSD, and has a good temperment and all the necessary things for a good working GSD, would it be wrong to breed them?

    Assuming all health testing has been done, etc. I guess it would depend on what your goals are, and on which registry you are affiliated with. I assume that if this was a UKC shepherd it would be no peoblem at all.

    I'm just more interested in the motives behind someone wanting to breed only for a specific color. Marketing ploy? Make more money off "rare" dogs? And because of that, I stay far, far, far away from people doing that to dogs.

    Stick with what the breed was bred for, a working breed, and breed for working ability.
