German Shepherd Guarantee

One of the most important factors in breeding dogs, (especially the German shepherd dog) is in the quality of your breeding program. Naturally, you would think that if we bred "THE" champion sire to a champion dam, we would eliminate all genetic risks. This is not the case.

However, with a superior pair of dogs we can establish a solid foundation to overcome problems in the future. Also, as a breeder WE ARE obligated to breed above standard, with the ultimate goal of producing the "PERFECT" German shepherd dog. This is the root of our breeding and for the love of the this magnificent breed.

The following guarantee is for your piece of mind... Our commitment to you and your new puppy/dog..

Our Guarantee

1. We guarantee that the health of each puppy is excellent to the best of our ability and knowledge. The puppy will be up to date on vaccinations and worming by the time it is picked up by the new owner. There will be written records given with each puppy of worming dates and vaccination information.

2. All puppies can be A.K.C. registered and the new owners will be provided registration papers to be sent in after they choose a name for their puppy. The paper name for the puppy must be proceeded by our Kennel name. Example, Labonte's Rin.

Puppy Hip Guarantee

1. We provide a guarantee for puppies to obtain a passiong OFA, SV or OVC certification free of hip displasia at up to 24 months of age provided the following conditions are met:

a) The dog must be x-rayed and the x-rays submitted to OFA, SV or OVC for evaluation at 24 months of age.

c) The dog has not been abused or involved in any type of accident where bones are broken or bruised.

d) The dog was provided with a proper diet and moderate exercise.

e) The dog must NOT be bred.

f) The dog must be kept on the thin side and NOT overweight.

g) I have been provided with a veterinarian report of medical history and the OFA, SV or OVC report.

h) You have NOT taken your dog running or done other joint stressing exercises with it until it is over one year of age. Things that stress growing joints include: exercise on hard unyielding surfaces, continuous running, repetitive jumping, training in competitive dog sports, or any activity that may cause injury to young bones.

i) When the dog is x-rayed, it is done so without sedation or at the most a light sedation (the dog needs to still be somewhat awake and alert to what is going on so that they can have muscle tone when the x-rays are taken) by a competent and experienced vet who knows how to do it with the dog held properly and evenly.

2. If the above conditions were met and the dog is deemed dysplastic by OFA, SV or OVC you

a. Either keep the original dog or return your dog

b. Get a replacement puppy from my next available litter of the same value.

This guarantee applies to the original purchaser only and is not transferable to a second party.

This guarnatee will be honored for 26 months.

All veterinarian costs are the buyers responsibility.

If you have grown attached to the dog we do not ask for its return if you promise to continue your good care despite the health issues.
