|I call BS on this one.
And the crazy lady that claims that some guy did a gene analysis and the Panda Shepherd is a different gene than the Border Collie ... yeah ... more BS.
The gene that causes white spotting in breeds like Border Collies, Collies, Shelties, Aussies, etc. hasn't even been found yet. No one knows what gene it is, so how the heck did the mystery genetics guy do a gene analysis on it? The gene for piebald spotting was just found earlier this year, and it isn't even completely understood yet.
The main "breeder" of these Panda Shepherds also has a website that I find exceedingly fishy. The first paragraph on the main page goes on about how the temperament of the Panda Shepherd differs from that of a regular GSD. Fishy that it would differ towards increased Border Collie character traits, eh?
I call foul here.
I don't believe this any more than I believe the silver Labs, the Biewer Yorkies, or the spontaneous merle mutation in Chihuahuas.
