From a reputable breeder a blue German Shepherd will cost, on average, no more than a traditional GSD. This cost is usually around $1,500 and up. Because their color is more on the rare side, you may end up paying a slightly higher premium for this color of the breed.
Blue German Shepherd are similar to Liver German Shepherds, but different to the White German Shepherds and Black German Shepherds, in the way that their coloring develops. White and Black German Shepherds receive their coloring when the recessive white or black color gene is passed down to the puppy from a parent.
From light brown to dark brown, from hazel to golden yellow, they can acquire various shades within this time. It is also quite normal for German Shepherd puppies to have blue eyes, but once they grow up, this blue color changes to another shade. It all depends on what kind of genes they are carrying.
There are some concerns with blue dogs that they will develop blue dog alopecia. However, the coat type of the GSD means that this is rare. Instead, owners should look out for the typical issues such joint dysplasia. It could also help to buy an Embark Breed Identification Dog DNA Test.
