If the breeding is not successful or we do not have the pup you reserved (not enough of that sex), we will move your deposit to a future litter. We DO NOT guarantee color. If you reserve a certain color and that color is not produced, we will NOT move your deposit to a future litter. Pick number of a puppy is determined by the order deposits are received. We will NOT hold a puppy without a deposit. Even though a deposit reserves your spot in line for a puppy for you, we will give our input on which puppy we feel best suits you and your needs...example: We will not place the highest drive puppy in a pet home or the lowest drive puppy in a working home.
While many of our puppies are placed in working homes, that is not to say we do not sell to pet homes. However, you must understand that these are working line German Shepherds. They will not lay around on the couch all day and be content with 2 walks a day. They need A LOT of exercise, mental stimulation and structure. If you are not prepared to spend the daily time needed for a high energy dog, then we recommend not getting a working line German Shepherd. When we refer to a pup in a litter as the lower drive pup, that pup is STILL high drive. German Shepherds are a challenging breed especially in the first year. They need more socialization than any other breed out there. They will hit ages of adolescence and challenge what they have learned. They are a high prey breed and must be carefully supervised around other animals and active children. They will nip and bite while going through teething. German Shepherds are a breed that is NOT suitable for Dog Parks and Doggy Daycare. Are you prepared to put the work, time and effort in to a working line puppy?
