FIRST PICK -I do not ask more for first pick, I feel this is very deceptive practice as sometimes first pick can be the choice of one in a litter of one male ,where as you may be third pick and have 6 males to choose from in a litter of 6 males and you get a higher pick anyway. So I believe the "fair way" is order of deposit and everybody pays the same. also you need to be careful on that first pick, where you pay more. I know of two breeders now who sold 3 -4 first picks from the same litter on nearly every litter they had..this is especially easy for the breeders to do if you are shipping. Or picking on line or when you get there your puppy is already chosen for you. I want people to pick here in order of deposit and see all puppies when they choose.and if it needs to be online I don't want anyone to choose until after temper tests and names of all people buying a pup from your litter are posted, so you as a buyer will know your choice is yours from beginning to end, where you are in line, and who is choosing which pup.Names are listed in order of deposit online(for everyone to see) from week one for honesty reasons.. websights where names and order are not listed breeders will often switch puppies on you and you would never know (this has happened to me several times! )there were a number of instances over the years when I was supposed to get top pick and paid extra(or was supposed to get top pick in a trade but then just got sent a puppy and seldom was the pup the one I actually chose. for someone not versed in color and look of german shepherd pups this is very hard to tell.
I do not breed for show -so price does not depend on show quality!
If you cannot pick up your puppy and he/she needs to
be shipped, don't worry. puppy nannies can
do it, or over ground shippers.
All puppies are given a Parvo then a 6 -way shot as well as getting wormed a minimum of four times with two different wormers,These are used to vaccinate twice until the new standards came out on vaccinations (see bottom of page)
(KING-all/SHILOH=most ) people must never be sold one of my pupppies any circumstances..If you need to rehome I must be contacted first.. So if you are a king breeder read this I have the right to sue you for ten times the amount of the dog/pup..Breeders of kings and shilohs have lied to me and other old- fashoined shepherd breeders so many times I can no longer count.There is no need of akc or any kind of real papers for these shepherd crosses. I have found these breeders as a whole very disreputable. It seems from facebook and thier talks in public forum they atcually support the practice as a "group" of buying puppies as pets from akc breeders with full knowledge to lie to those breeders as to the fact they breed shilohs or kings..And "two" of my puppies now have been "killed" by owners who also own a king shepherd.(akita crossed?)no wonder..so I will no longer sell to anyone who even owns a king shepherd.

Research output:Â Contribution to journalÂ â€ºÂ Article
Objective:-To compare 2 screening methods for detecting evidence of hip dysplasia (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals [OFA] and PennHIP) in dogs. Design:-Diagnostic test evaluation study. Animals:-439 dogs â‰¥ 24 months of age that received routine hip joint screening from June 1987 through July 2008. Procedures:-Dogs were sedated, and PennHIP radiography was performed (hip jointextended [HE], compression, and distraction radio graphic views). The HE radio graphic view was submitted for OFA evaluation. A copy of the HE radio graphic view plus the compression and distraction radiographic views were submitted for routine PennHIP evaluation, including quantification of hip joint laxity via the distraction index (DI). Results:-14% (60/439) of dogs had hip joints scored as excellent by OFA standards; however, 52% (31/60) of those had a DI â‰¥ 0.30 (range, 0.14 to 0.61). Eighty-two percent of (183/223) dogs with OFA-rated good hip joints had a DI â‰¥ 0.30 (range, 0.10 to 0.77), and 94% (79/84) of dogs with OFA-rated fair hip joints had a DI â‰¥ 0.30 (range, 0.14 to 0.77). Of all dogs with fair to excellent hip joints by OFA standards, 80% (293/367) had a DI â‰¥ 0.30. All dogs with OFA-rated borderline hip joints or mild, moderate, or severe hip dysplasia had a DI â‰¥ 0.30 (range, 0.30 to 0.83). Conclusion and Clinical Relevance:-Dogs judged as photogenically normal by the OFA harbored clinically important passive hip joint laxity as determined via distraction radiography. Results suggested that OFA scoring of HE radio graphs underestimated susceptibility to osteoarthritis in dogs, which may impede progress in reducing or eliminating hip dyspepsia through breeding.

This came through on the AKC Parent Club list today. - 9/28/03 The following is taken from the April/May Newsletter of the Senior Dogs Project:
Vaccinations: All Veterinary Schools in North America Changing Vaccination Protocols
Recent editions of the Senior Dogs Project's newsletter have reported on the ever-broadening trend of eliminating vaccinations for adult dogs, except for rabies, where required by state law.
We have now had a report that all 27 veterinary schools in North America are in the process of changing their protocols for vaccinating dogs and cats.
Here, in a nutshell, are the new guidelines under consideration:
"Dogs and cats immune systems mature fully at 6 months. If a modified live virus (MLV) vaccine is given after 6 months of age, it produces immunity, which is good for the life of the pet (i.e., canine distemper, parvo, feline distemper). If another MLV vaccine is given a year later, the antibodies from the first vaccine neutralize the antigens of the second vaccine and there is little or no effect. The titer is not 'boosted' nor are more memory cells induced.
"Not only are annual boosters for parvo and distemper unnecessary, they subject the pet to potential risks of allergic reactions and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. There is no scientific documentation to back up label claims for annual administration of MLV vaccines. Puppies receive antibodies through their mothers milk. This natural protection can last 8-14 weeks. Puppies and kittens should NOT be vaccinated at LESS than 8 weeks.
Maternal immunity will neutralize the vaccine and little protection (0-38%) will be produced.
"Vaccination at 6 weeks will, however, delay the timing of the first highly effective vaccine. Vaccinations given 2 weeks apart suppress rather than stimulate the immune system. A series of vaccinations is given starting at 8 weeks and given 3-4 weeks apart up to 16 weeks of age.
Another vaccination given sometime after 6 months of age (usually at 1 year 4 months) will provide lifetime immunity."
I do agree in part adult dogs should only be vaccinated once every three years with Rabies shot!
