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