Are you still taking commissions and would you ship to Australia?

Beautiful! This is a beautiful representation of a Silver Sable GSD.

Also, in response to the stuff said before, the "Classic black and tan" is not classic in the least and was bred into the breed for fashion. The original German Shepherds were all sable, anywhere from silver to deep red to practically black. This is why the majority of working GSDs are some variation of sable, and why show lines are black/red, black/tan, black/silver, you get it. As a breeder, we have quite the time trying to explain this to all of our customers who come in wanting an "Original" colored GSD! 

This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I have yet to visit the rest of your gallery, but this picture alone wants me to throw money at you to recreate my Red Sable GSD "Jericho." This is by far the most realistic GSD head I've seen, THANK YOU for not making it look like a brown Husky!

For a shepherd they don't usually have that fur color unless they're a mix. Just a suggestion, you may want to make it a classic tan/black saddle, white or black. .-. Sorry it bothers me that it says it's a GS when it doesn't have the right fur color..

Actually, it is possible for it to be a full GSD, of the sable colouration (which is not a mix colouration)

I see your point. They can also be brindle but you don't see it very often. It just didn't look sable or anything of the sorts.

Yeah, I think brindle's pretty rare. And it does look lighter, at least to me, than sables usually are, but that would be my best bet as to why it's got that colouration c:

Yea I have a black GS and everyone thinks he's a wolf cause they've never seen a black long hair.

That's awesome! Mine was husky/gsd and looked like a typical sable as far as colouration went except she was so light tan she was almost white

Ooh I'm sure she's very pretty. I don't think I've ever seen a Husky/Shepherd mix. I've seen a lab mix but I think the owners are sorta lying cause he looks like a black lab...
