Our loveable family friend has given birth to a litter of German Shepherd pups. We have girls and boys, sable or black in colours.
We have three children and other pets, subsequently a busy household. Mother has a steady, calm temperament and has welcomed affection towards her pups from family members, she is very intelligent and obedient. She enjoys games such as hide and seek for her favourite toy, and spending time with the family at the end of their busy days. She has a respect for areas of the house that are of limits to her and acknowledges the household pecking order! Despite her size the children are more than confident to walk her regularly and we only ever experience her barking in security scenarios. The puppies have naturally been introduced to the expected behaviours from their mother since birth. They will all be weaned and toilet trained (using newspapered areas for soiling) before they leave to join their new families.
We welcomed a German Shepherd into our family as a companion to our daughter who has special needs, but each member of our family have developed their own special bond. Both DAM and SIRE come from strong working lines used as trusted, dependable members of the police and prison service.
The pups were born on Monday 15th October 2018, they are expected to leave their mum at 8 weeks old (from Monday 10th December onwards).
- Each pup will leave with a Kennel Club A4 certificate that includes information on five generations of pedigree dogs ancestry, Breed, Sex, Date of Birth, Registration, Registration ID, Colour and name(s) of Breeder(s).
- Each pup will leave with 5 weeks free insurance
- Each pup will leave with microchipping documents which will allow you to transfer keepership on the database
- Our vet recommends vaccinations are given to each pup by the new owner to ensure the identical brand is used for both 1st and 2nd courses. However, we can arrange the 1st vaccination, at the time of microchipping, if needed.
- Each pup will have received worming treatment from 2wks of age, continued at two weekly intervals until they leave to join their new family.
BVA/KC Hip Dysplasia Scheme
The current BVA/KC scoring system for hip dysplasia (HD) has been in operation since 1984 and since then over 250,000 X-rays have been assessed. Dysplasia means abnormal development, and the degree of hip dysplasia present is indicated by a score assigned to each hip. The hip score is the sum of the points awarded for each of mine aspects of the X-rays of both hip joints. The minimum hip score is 0 and the maximum is 106 (53 for each hip). The lower the score the less the degree of hip dysplasia present. An average (or mean) score is calculated for all breeds scored under the scheme, as is the median (or middle) score. The minimum age for hip scoring is one year, and each dog is only ever scored once under the scheme.

We have had no need to assess her Hip scores, it is quite an invasive test, we didn’t want to use her as a working dog so chose not to put her through it. Hip scores recorded throughout the generations point towards the likelihood of a low reading so the test seemed somewhat unnecessary.

It is now mandatory throughout the United Kingdom for all dog owners to have their dogs microchipped and recorded with a government compliant microchip database such as Petlog.
Microchipping is a simple, safe and quick procedure which makes reuniting dogs with their owners much more likely. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and the procedure, which is carried out by a vet or trained microchip implanter, takes only a few minutes and lasts a lifetime. Microchipping became a legal requirement for all dogs in the U.K. from April 2016 onwards.
All pups are microchipped and recorded by the time they are eight weeks old and before they are sold.
When a dog is transferred, the new owner’s (keeper’s) details must be added to the database. Moreover, if an owner moves home or changes telephone number, these details should be updated. Failure to keep these details up to date means that, in the eyes of the law, the dog is no longer considered microchipped and a fine can apply.
Dog identification tags
‘Every dog while on a public highway or place of public resort must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or a plate or badge attached to it’, Control of Dogs Order 1992
Vaccinations will help your puppy avoid five of the most serious dog diseases:
- Canine distemper virus, a virus with no known cure.
Infectious canine hepatitis, which usually affects dogs less than two years old.
- Leptospirosis, a bacterial disease spread via infected urine or contaminated water.
- Canine parvovirus, a highly contagious viral disease that’s especially severe in puppies.
- Canine parainfluenza, which is a cause of ‘kennel cough’.
Annual vaccinations for the first four illnesses above are required and if your dog will regularly visit boarding kennels, your vet will also recommend they are fully vaccinated against kennel cough. A rabies vaccination will be needed if you plan to take your puppy abroad.
Young dogs are usually vaccinated at eight and 10 weeks, with a first course of two injections. Until your puppy has had all his or her vaccinations, it’s best to avoid them being in contact with other dogs or being walked in public places. A year after your dog’s first vaccination they are required to be given a booster, which will need to be repeated every year throughout their adult life. If more than 15 months pass between boosters, most vets will recommend restarting the vaccination programme.
Worms, ticks and fleas
All dogs will have worms at some point in their lives, with puppies being most at risk. An untreated worm infestation can lead to a loss of condition in the adult dog and quite serious illness in puppies, as well as putting human health at risk (however small this risk may be). As a responsible dog owner, it is important for you to worm your dog regularly.
We began using Pancur worming treatment 3 weeks prior to expected delivery and subsequent post birth, as advised by our vet. This was to ensure that both mother, and pups, have had the maximum protection. Puppies have be wormed from two weeks of age at two weekly intervals, this should be continued until they are twelve weeks of age, then every month until they are six months of age. Worming should continue at least three times a year with a recommended veterinary preparation for the rest of the dog’s life.
It is thought that most dogs will suffer from a flea infestation at some point in their lives. It used to be that they were most at risk during the warmer months; however, with modern day central heating we now provide a lovely warm environment for fleas all year round. For this reason, treatment against fleas should be provided throughout the year.
Most flea/tick medications are not safe to use on puppies until they’ve reached at least 7 or 8 weeks of age. Your veterinarian will be able to recommend a flea/tick medication to use and advise you on when it’s safe to begin administering it to your pup.
