Please get in contact with MERJUKE GSD for further information on the following litter:

Level top-line
KC registered & Micro-chipped
Pure platinum pedigree containing extremely successful lines in both worldwide working & confirmation competitions (brains & beauty)
Related to the highest winning British bred GSD at the WUSV AND the German Seiger, etc.
Extensively socialised (research has shown that environment alongside genetics can have a LOT of influence on a puppy’s potential temperament) including with very loud noises such as planes taking off & landing.
Raised indoors alongside a supervised toddler & cats
Stock broken with sheep, goats, chickens, ducks
Commence house training & crate training
Raised on an above average premium diet, wormed every 2 weeks (Drontal puppy worming liquid)
Parents are hip & elbow scored & dad is also haemophilia tested (see below for more info)
Both parents have a KC estimated breeding value for hips and elbows that is lower than the breed average
0% KC genetic co-efficient / bred with genetic diversity in mind / no line breeding (let alone in breeding) between mum and dad within a minimum of 5 generations of their pedigree / mum’s pedigree is made up of working lines & dads of confirmation lines which further increases the pup’s genetic diversity
Repeat of a litter that will be 3 years old in 2017, and no health problems, etc. reported to date
One of the previous litter’s pups is a 1st place winner in obedience & confirmation competition alongside being a KC gold, silver, and bronze good citizen holder.
Come with a way above average puppy pack (please see below for more details)
Mum is 6 1/2 and she has only had one other litter approximately 2 1/2 years ago. So she hasn't been over bred by any stretch of the imagination.
The litter has the potential to be trained for obedience and as beloved pets.
Previous progeny live alongside young children & other pets.
The litter contains: 1 sable male, 2 black & tan females, 3 black & tan males
The black & tans should be dark masked due to carrying a recessive copy of the black

Mum and dad both have a BVA hip score of 10 alongside 0 elbows (dad is also haemophilia tested clear). Their litter siblings also have great hips and elbows (Dad's siblings: 9 + 0 elbows + cardiology tested clear, 14 +0 elbows / Mum's siblings: 8 + 0 elbows + haemophilia tested clear + PD clear, 12 + elbows, and 12 + 0 elbows).

Dad is a multiple 1st place confirmation winner. Multiple of dad’s litter siblings are gold, silver, and bronze KC good citizen awarded, Crufts qualified, BOB, BPIB, Puppy Group, VP, and VG graded. Dad’s Champion father is also a multiple British Seiger class winner & a Group 2 winner alongside being a litter sibling to another Champion, etc. Dad’s mother is a Crufts 1st place winner, multiple group, BOB, BPIB, VP, VG graded, gold, silver, bronze good citizen holder, etc. Please see my website for more information on dad (Troy … there is also some information on his father on his page), dad’s mother (Hope), siblings (Faye and Sadie), and half sibling (Poppy).

Due to living in the middle of nowhere when mum was younger alongside not driving I was unfortunately unable to compete with mum. However Mum’s father is an IPO3 and SCH3 and breed class survey 1 male who is the sire of multiple police dogs. Mum’s mother is a gold, silver, bronze good citizen and confirmation placement holding female who is the dam of police and prison dogs, 1st place confirmation winners, gold / silver / bronze good citizen holders, dogs that live alongside young children, etc. Please see my website for more information on mum (Vixen), her siblings (Roman, Minnie), half sibling (Cleo), and mother (Riot).

I have also competed in obedience and / or confirmation with mum's nieces Kuro, Poppy, and Meg (please see my website for more information on them). With mum's nieces I have taken 1st places in both disciplines, and multiple group positions, BOB, and BPIB. Kuro also has her gold, silver and bronze good citizen, and Poppy has her silver and bronze (Poppy only does not have her gold yet due to the new KC rule that prevents dogs in 2016 obtaining their gold until they are over 12 months of age). Kuro and Meg (alongside Kuro's litter sister) have a hip score of 12 plus 0 elbows, and Poppy has just been x-rayed with very good predictions on her hips and elbows too. Thus the lines have proven themselves be capable of producing good health, temperament, working and confirmation showing potential (although with the latter a level top-line dog has a LOT of limitations within confirmation competition which is why despite the lines having success in this area this litter is NOT recommended for confirmation showing).

The puppies are weaned onto freshly laid free range scrambled eggs in goat’s milk, probiotic goats milk yoghurt, organic honey, organic heinz baby rice, mince & fresh fish slowly fried in a tiny bit of organic butter. This is then transferred to Royal Canin puppy mouse, and then to Royal Canin Maxi starter only. The puppies can have a diet changed to a BARF diet on a home’s request. My own adult dogs get a varied BARF diet and some Royal Canin 4800.

The puppies come with KC registration / transfer of KC ownership details, micro-chip, 4 weeks insurance, a voucher for some Royal Canin food worth £20+, some royal canin training treats, a blanket to remind the pup of the smells of home, a soft toy, a Kong, important puppy information booklet, and an invite to a private facebook group which has a LOT of training advice sheets on a wide range of subjects (from house training to training more complicated activities such as tracking) and on-going advice throughout the puppy’s life (the group also has a wide range of homes on there from first time novice family pet homes to homes who compete or even judge a wide range of dog competition activities). The group also allows a home an opportunity to see how the litter sibling’s develop, and as it is a group no one on it can see anyone’s personal facebook wall which also helps to maintain privacy if desired between homes.

I have undertaken an Animal Science Degree that specialises in genetics, physiology, nutrition & behaviour. I have participated in additional behavioural lectures (including Ian Dumbars), extensively researched the confirmation of dogs, the German Shepherd Dog’s original purpose & the development of puppy behaviour. I have competed & won multiple times in confirmation & obedience, obtained multiple gold, silver and bronze good citizen awards, attended IPO classes, been on the podium at the British Seiger, I am very interested in agility & working trials training & I am a member of multiple dog clubs. My puppies commonly leave to homes all over the country to homes that have either been personally recommended to me, whom have waited for 12 months or more, or whom have seen me advertise. Because of what I do, my dogs themselves I usually get a VERY high level of interest in litters that contain my lines, and thus I would strongly recommend that if you have any questions relating to this litter that you got in contact sooner rather than later. This litter has not currently been mentioned to anyone and thus there is still currently an opportunity to have pick of the litter / a high pick within the litter. I am happy to answer any questions.

Mum & dad can be seen alongside the puppies. The puppies can leave for their forever homes at 8 weeks of age.

The pictures show dad, some of the pups when they were less than 24 hours old, on their 4th week birthday, mum with her pups, and the pups at 4 weeks of age on their first visit outside to say hello to the sheep (as well as one of our cats). Please see my website for more pictures of the parents, relatives and pups, and please feel free to get in contact for some pictures of mum's progeny from her first and only other litter.

Puppy/Dog Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this German Shepherd. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a dog or puppy from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list. If you have any concerns, report them to us.

  • Do your research first
    Getting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog. You can read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners. Also read our German Shepherd Dog breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit to be paid online without visiting the dog at their home, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any dog. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.

    Pets4Homes do not verify that all advertisers are genuine, so you must make sure you visit the advertiser at their home to confirm yourself. If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses why you cannot see the puppies mum, please walk away and report them to us
  • Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?
    Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their puppies longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age puppies should be before leaving their mothers
  • Check the Health of the Puppy or Dog
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the puppy has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Is the puppy or dog up to date with their vaccinations?
    Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Older Dogs require booster vaccinations occasionally as recommended by their Vet. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. Puppies should have at least had their first set of vaccinations before they leave. If the seller has not started the puppies vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the puppies been treated for worms and fleas?
    Puppies should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Is the puppy/dog Microchipped ?
    From April 6th 2016 it will be required by law that all dog over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keepers details registered against them are kept up to date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have their details registered on the microchip database first. Please check to make sure you receive the microchip documentation with chip number and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
  • Ask questions about puppies mother
    Ask how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Ask about her temperament. The advertiser should want to tell you all about the puppies mother.
  • Is the dog/puppy registered with the kennel club?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct kennel club documents BEFORE you decide to take the dog home. It may also be worth phoning the kennel club to check the information provided is correct.
  • Have the puppies been socialised ?
    Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Puppies that haven't been raised in a home environment may develop behavioural issues, have temperamental problems, be difficult to housetrain and find adjusting to family life hard.
