German Shepherd Dog Days of Summer

 Hi Everyone,

Just a hodgepodge update of the going-on at Keystone German Shepherds & Kennels.  Well it is summer and while we have been blessed with rain and cooler temperature than the last two summers, it does increase my workload.  Now that our grass has reached an unseemly height, I have to mow again.

I have been unable to blog the last six days due to our schedule and the fact that I am having to re-surface our asphalt driveway, which distance is over an eighth of a mile.  Due to lack of maintenance over the last several years, it has taken all week to fill cracks and resurface the black top with the help of a wonderful young high school student, Michael.  Even with all the work and time invested, we still are only halfway done with the driveway.  Therefore, my blogs will be Spartan in the next couple of weeks as I will be mowing, weeding eating, and repairing the driveway.  I also have started weaning our three litters that are inside and growing well.  I am excited about the wonderful puppies that we are going to have available starting in mid-September.

I am proud to announce that we had our Canine Good Citizen Testing on Saturday, July 20, 2013.  We had four German shepherds take the test with three passing.  The puppy that failed had only been to Keystone’s Canine Good Citizen Class and Basic Obedience Class four times before the testing and he was not quite ready.  He will pass with a few more training classes.  Nevertheless, congratulations to the Mia and her owners Daniel and Kat Gettel, Tank and his owners Darran and Shelley Douglas, and Glory and her owner Gail Reed for readily passing the Canine Good Citizen Test and earning their Certificates.  We will have our next free Canine Good Citizen Class and Basic Obedience Class Saturday morning at 10:30 AM on July 27, 2013.  Please attend if you can make it.

Hi Everyone,

Today, I am going to discuss a wonderful eight-month-old male German shepherd puppy  that we hope to re-home.  Heidelberg’s Norman v Kelseyq (Elvis) is a normal coated shepherd and has great structure and conformation. Elvis is the son of Grand Champion, Champion Heidelberg’s Nashville v Oklahoman (OFA ‘ed) and Champion Heidelberg’s Kelsey Queridad.  His owners fell into hard times and could no longer keep Elvis.  Elvis is completely trained in all obedience, has great manners, and lived in the house full-time.

Elvis is also the litter-mate of Heidelberg’s Nelson v Kelseyq, which we have kept as a future champion and stud dog.  Elvis has an outgoing friendly and happy personalty.  He is confident, well mannered, and a very healthy puppy.

Elvis will be protective and will keep you from being robbed, but he is not a liability and will not bite a child or someone that is supposed to be at your house.  Elvis grew up with small children and is well socialized to people and other dogs.  Elvis would be perfect for a family looking for companionship and home protection, but do not have the time to train a young puppy.

If you are interested in purchasing Elvis, please call me about pricing at (918) 261-4729.  We will sell Elvis for a really good price.

 Hi Everyone,

Germane to yesterday’s discussion, we had a beautiful, just turned one-year-old intact female returned to us due to a family crisis.  Heidelberg’s Mia Yasminp, born July 12, 2012 is a Grand Champion, Champion Heidelberg’s Kodiak v Queridad OFA Excellent daughter.  Mia is a long-coat with perfect structure and will be large at a lean weight of 85 pounds.

We have Mia offered up for sale at the low price of $1,526.00, which includes the cost for her tattoo.  She will be sold with full registration and no contract, and she is breedable quality.

Mia is fully trained in obedience and house trained.  She will not fowl your house or chew on your furniture.  She does not have any separation anxiety issues.   Mia needs to go to an Alpha owner because she is highly intelligent and exhibits alpha tendencies.  She will be fine with cats and other large breed dogs.  However, due to her alpha personality, she will not be good for homes with small breeds such as terriers that will challenge her dominance.

In addition, she should not go to a home with a weak owner or she will manipulate this person with her high intelligence imposing her will taking advantage of  the weaker human.   Mia is high drive and very playful so she would be good for an active family that jogs or go on walks on regular bases. 

Mia will be protective and will bite someone that tries to break into your home or that attacks a family member.  However, Mia loves kids and people and will readily accept anyone that you invite into your home.  Therefore, she will not be a liability or a concern for the new owner.  Below are current pictures of Mia at 12-months-of-age:

Registering German Shepherd Dogs With The American Kennel Club

Exploring the vast prairie of the Washita National Wildlife Refuge

Hi Everyone,

We register all our German Shepherd Dog puppies with the American Kennel Club (AKC) because it provides the highest possible protection for those puppies throughout life.  Registering all pure blood dogs with AKC adds intrinsic value to those registered dogs.  Dogs that are valued through their pure blood registration are less likely to be dumped, discarded, abandoned, used for fighting, etc.  Even the worse examples of certain breeds have an increased chance of a good and loved life if they are registered through AKC.

We have no idea what the future involves in our life, and any of could find ourselves through life circumstances unable to care for the puppy in the future that we purchase today.  If your puppy is registered it is going to much easier for you or your breeder to find a new home for that puppy that you can no longer keep.  Therefore, when a customer purchases a puppy from us, we collect the AKC registration fee from them and have the customer fill out the registration before leaving with their new puppy.  We then mail in several registrations via certified mail to AKC, thus making sure all our puppies are registered. 

We have several customers each year tell us that they do not care about registering their puppy because they are not going to breed or show their new puppy, nevertheless, we insist that these puppies get registered.  Throughout the year we get back a few puppies, teenagers, and adults because the family has had a life changing event where they can no longer keep their German shepherd dog.  These life changing events have included divorce, loss of job, severe illness, death of a spouse, and relocation out-of-the-country.  None of these events were foreseen or anticipated by the new puppy owners.

We at Keystone German Shepherds & Kennels always take our dogs back and try to rehome our German Shepherd Dogs if the former family cannot keep them any longer.  Our task of rehoming and potentially reselling these German Shepherd Dog, puppies, teenagers and young adults is much easier if these dogs have been registered with AKC.  Upon reselling these rehomed dogs, we refund the former owners original purchase price less our expenses.  In addition, we transfer the registration of these rehomed German shepherd dogs to the new owners.

If you are purchasing your German shepherd dog from someone other than Keystone German Shepherds & Kennels, please take the time to register your new puppy with AKC.  This will help add protection to your new puppy if something happens to you where you can no longer take care of your dog.

In addition, ask your breeder if they offer the added insurance of rehoming your dog if you are unable to take of it any longer.  If they are unwilling, unable, or sound hesitant about providing this service, perhaps you should consider a different breeder.  Backyard breeders would be less likely to be able to provide this service because they do not have the facilities to take care of a dog that is not a part of their two to four dog pack in their backyard, thus, another reason for someone that is looking for a quality German Shepherd Dog puppy to avoid backyard breeders.
