Black German Shepherd

The Black German Shepherd is a rare and captivating color variation of the standard German Shepherd.

The black color is due to a recessive gene. To produce a black German Shepherd, both parents need to carry the recessive gene and should be pure-bred German Shepherds.

Although they belong to the same breed, Black German Shepherds might be larger than standard-colored ones.

Black German Shepherds are rare, making them more expensive than other colored GSDs. Their price can range from $1,250 to $2,500, depending on location.

Black German Shepherds are more likely to suffer from “Black Dog Syndrome.” This phenomenon refers to black dogs being overlooked for adoption due to their color.
