German Shepherd Dog (Another Heidelberg Hero Story)

 Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry that I have been so sporadic on these posts.  Ever since mid-June it seems that I have lost control of my time since I have been unbelievably busy.  However, with summer ending and all the associated chores, I am hopeful I will have a little more time to share with you my stories and knowledge of the wonderful German Shepherd Dog.  To make up for my tardiness I have a true and inspiring story for you today.

A longtime friend and Heidelberg German Shepherd Dog owner, John had his life saved by his beloved male Heidelberg, but not in a way you would ever expect.   John is a Heidelberg dog collector and has gotten into breeding and showing Heidelberg German Shepherd Dogs, but while over the years John has had several Heidelberg’s, he had his favorite male, Gunner  that went everywhere with John.  Gunner was approximately five-years-old and had already finished his Championship and was John’s prize stud dog.

One day John came home and Gunner immediately came to John and rather than giving John the regular greeting of sitting and waiting for John to lean over so Gunner could give him a kiss, Gunner immediately stuck his nose in John’s calf and started licking.  John thought maybe that he had brushed up against a girl that was in-season and did not think too much of the calf licking.  However, Gunner was persistent in licking John’s calf so much so that John took a shower so Gunner would stop.   Gunner did not stop.  This went on for a week, and so much so that Gunner got scolded and put outside several days.

John thought Gunner had developed some kind of personality problem and was upset that his prize stud dog and companion had become Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) over John’s leg.  While deciding what he was going to do with Gunner, John had the television on and a program came on about how European Doctors were using dogs to detect cancer.

John scheduled an appointment with his doctor, and he found that John had under-the-skin melanoma in the calf.  Almost anyone that has under-the-skin melanoma by the time they feel sick and seek medical help they usually die five days later because, by this time, it has spread throughout the entire body and is the brain and the lungs.

John had major surgery on his calf to remove the cancer and for two years had undergone chemo treatments.  He is finally cancer free.  Needless to say, Gunner was even elevated to a higher status in John’s house and while ten-years-old now, Gunner is still doing well.

Registering German Shepherd Dogs With The American Kennel Club

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.
