Wait, did I call the B locust gene a culprit? Sorry! actually, this recessive gene (B locus) is a heroic gene. Due to this gene, we can see the rare, attractive Liver-colored German shepherd Puppies. 

It is not essential that a puppy’s parent must be Livered-colored to give birth to a liver-colored offspring, they just have to carry the B locus gene to create a probability of giving birth to a Livered-colored German shepherd puppy.
