|Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by kingcypress: 5:40am On Apr 25, 2021
I just got this pup GSD. I would like to know if it is a long coated one. It is 7 weeks now
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by Sola2010: 5:59am On Apr 25, 2021
Yes its a long coat .The future coat will depend on whether the two parents are long coats.
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by kingcypress: 7:30am On Apr 25, 2021
Thank for the reply. Does it mean it can change from long coated to short in the future?
I only saw the mother which is short coated
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by PeraGSD: 10:05am On Apr 25, 2021
Your answer is confusing. It can not be long hair today and turn to short or stock hair tomorrow. Then only parents pics can not totally determine. A lot of long haired GSDs you see today had short haired ones in their ancestory. There was a deliberate attempt along the years to line breed with dominant long haired stock or repeat breedings with long hairs to perpetuate the coat dominance.
@OP the picture is not clear enough to answer. But a mixed hair length combo can produce both long and short hair pups. They will not change from one to the other when they grow up. A couple of things to look out for though...tuft of hair behind the ears, hair flow on posterior of fore limbs and hair in between paws are good signs the pup is long haired. if you do share clearer picture from a good angle (eye level is always better) we may answer better.

Ohhh! Thanks a lot for the comprehensive answer.
It is well appreciated.
I will upload clearer pictures from different angles for better answer

As requested by @PeraGSD PeraGSD these are more pictures of Jack my 7weeks GSD.
How pure is it and can it be confirmed if it is a long coated?
Thank in anticipation of comments advises and contributions
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by PeraGSD: 8:38pm On Apr 25, 2021
You asked 2 questions. Will try to articulate answers for you.
1. Based on observations from pics shared which we have further highlighted the reasons as attached in zoomed pics....Yes it is long haired.
2. On purity...that is a long shot. 2 ways you can affirm purity. One is via DNA testing which will give % of purity. Another is if you can verify ancestory to a couple of generations behind the pup. Without at least one of these any guess at purity from a snapshot is an exercise with too many holes ready to be punctured. So i will not make an attempt at that moreso when there are all sorts happening out there and breeders trying to outdo one another just for the buck from a sale claiming purity.
I hope this helps.

@PeraGSD PeraGSD, I sincerely appreciate you timely and apt professional response. �
I am a first timer cos this is my very first pup.
I got the puppy 4 days ago.
It is acclimatising itself with it new environment. The friend that I got it from said it has been given it first dose of vasin and dewormed.
I have not really identify the best feed for this pup at this stage cos it is very selective.
My question sir,
When should I give it it next vasin (the first was give like 2 weeks ago when the pup was 5 weeks)?
Can I deworm it again?
Can I deworm it with my baby's medication?
What is the best feed for it at this stage and feeding pattern?
Thank in anticipation of your response
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by PeraGSD: 9:10pm On Apr 25, 2021
On deworming, the regime should be at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks. Subsequently 3 to 6 months intervals should be fine. There ate various dewormers out there. Praziwormer is a popular one. Worm off etc. It is important to use the right dosage. I will advise you meet a vet as you are a new owner.
On vacs, since the first shot was given at 5 weeks, second can be done at 8 and there on 12 weeks when the antirabies will be due. Again contact your vet for best advise.
On feeding a puppy kibble is OK. I may not recommend any specific brand as they have cost differentials. So you may go with what best suits your pocket. On selection so many variables come to play what is affordable and easy to get and how you introduce same to pup. I am careful not to recommend my feeding regime but at 7 weeks our pups do have a mix of puppy kibble, boiled egg, ground dried or smoked fish. They are graduated into raw feeding as they approach 12 weeks. Again do what fits into your pocket and lifestyle.

Thanks a lot sir. Your help is well and truly appreciated.

This is no long coat, it is hairy, yea! But not long coat. Check long coat puppies on YouTube to better understand diffrence between hairy, long coat and short coat
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by kingcypress: 3:27pm On Apr 28, 2021
I have checked ooooo. I couldn't find anything like hairy.
Kindly tell me the difference

"If u no get peragsd money for confirm puppy"
Who told you he does not have PerGSD money for confirm puppy. PeraGSD money for confirm puppy na shikini money . Just plan well. That is why we accept payments in installments. There are people from this forum that we have done that for and we have never set eyes on each other. We try to make the puppy adoption/acquisition experience easy so more persons can own a "confirm puppy"
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by laluski(m): 2:19pm On Apr 29, 2021
My dear brother
I mean no disrespect. Don't get me wrong. I also am seriously planning on having a pup from you. My 8 Months female Caucasian just died last week due to INBREEDING and I bought her from that plan.
So my advice to my young man was meant as an advice nothing else
I'll call you soon
|Re: Please Is This Pup A Long Coat? by PeraGSD: 2:53pm On Apr 29, 2021
So sorry to hear about your loss.
I actually was making banter see emoji. No hard feelings whatsoever. I got your angle too. You are welcome anytime.
