What Kind of breed is Cabal (and now Lola)?
He is, as the farmer who gave him to me said at the time (and I doubted at the time, because I didn’t know that he was white under all that) a White German Shepherd Dog (what we called an Alsatian when I was growing up in England — the German Shepherd became known as an Alsatian in the UK during World War I in much the same way that French Fries became Freedom Fries in the US a few years back). There would be a lot more White German Shepherds around if the Nazis hadn’t decided they were racially inferior and needed to be cleansed from the gene pool. Of course, the same could be said of my family.
