1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Was wondering what you guys thought of them. If I hadn't decided on a Siberian Husky I would've loved to get one. For anyone who doesn't know they are a purebred German Shepherd (proved by DNA testing). It's just a genetic mutation that happened with a litter and they found breeding a black shepherd with a panda made it reoccur.

This is actually a pretty controversial subject in German Shepherd circles.  There's a lot of discussion about whether this an ethical breeding process or not.

I personally have a problem with breeders who breed solely for color rather than temperament or to standard or health. 

Many breeders of pandas also register them with AKC as GSD (as black and tans), but then show them in the Rare Breed Association. That's pretty disingenuous. 

The name is also a red flag. Instead of calling them tri-colored like other breeds, they went right for the $$$$ marketing name. 

To me, it's just another way for breeders to market "rare" colors and charge more for people who don't know better.

I agree with what Anya said. To me it would be like a Sibe breeder advertising with "blue eyes, rare coloring, big huskies!" Those are red flags you want to stay away from. Although I'm not an expert in GSDs so if its a genetic mutation, is the coat really acceptable by breed standard? If it is acceptable and the breeder has health tested the parents and proved the worth in the ring, and bred the parents not for their coloring but for their structure and temperament and by chance got a puppy with that coloring, only then would I consider it.
