****************************

The  babies born here we feel are our responsibility for their entire life. And we know that unexpected things can happen in life. Therefore we ask that each of our puppy families please contact us first, if it becomes necessary for one of our babies to have a new home. Please give us the opportunity to find a new family for them. We want only the very best life possible for each of our little ones.

#################

our babies do not go to their new families until they are at least 8 to 10 weeks old or older. this is to insure the baby is more mature and that their immune systems are more developed. Please do not ask to take a baby home any earlier then 8 weeks at the youngest. this reduces the compounding of stress from weaning and the move to their new home at the same time .

We will be glad to reserve a baby for you from the litter you pick. We reserve the babies all along for families, and then when they are 8 weeks old, we pick the very best male and best female and they go to the people that paid for the Pick of the litter male and the pick female. Then the remainder of the litter is selected in the order that they were reserved. So please reserve your baby early to get the baby you really want.

I have been breeding, showing and picking German Shepherds for 40+ years, we pick the best of color, size, personality, movement etc.Then we pick the puppies out and deliver them in the order that they were reserved. If there are any babies left in a litter, at 10 weeks, then other families are welcome to come here and choose a baby.

 of course the best way to get the best baby is to reserve one as soon as you see the parents that you love. Remember all of the German Shepherd babies are born mostly black and they color out for a year, to a year and a half of age. They will be no lighter then the lightest parent and no darker then the darkest parent. They will most often be somewhere in the middle. 

 

Now for American, German, or Eastern European German Shepherds.What is the difference? American are the show dogs here in the states. They are often longer, taller, more angulated in rear, and calmer in temperment. The West German are bloodlines that come from kennels in West Germany and they are more active and the females very productive and are often a lot smaller than the American or Eastern European females  and they are usually  squarer in their body profile. 

The Eastern European German Shepherd bloodliness are of course imported from Eastern Europe they are usually a lot bigger and have more massive bone, (Like our Dallas, Missy and Axel) They are very, very driven and active.They need a job to do. They are always busy and on patrol. 

So what we breed is a Family Pet only. so we put a little American blood into the mix to calm the temperment down just a little and to make the movement more refined and that makes a loving yet protective dog for families to enjoy.

All puppies will have been wormed at least three times, and will have had their first shots and their first monthly flea medication, (We recommend Frontline, Bio-Spot , Protocal, or an all in one like Revolution.

All babies go to their new home, with a small bag of their dog food. We recommend:  any quality food with out corn as a primary ingredient. Tractor Supply Stores have Diamond brand, chicken and rice,that we highly recommend. Also Taste Of The Wild, and Blue Buffalo dog foods are very good quality, with little to no corn.

Please do not change the babies' food for at least 6 weeks. This gives the baby time to adjust to their new home with as little change as possible. Please use a  very highly digestible food that  provides superior nutrition for your baby as he grows.  

Your baby has been "free" fed all of his life. He has never been with out food available. By free feeding the puppies they should never be food possessive or over eat. 

All babies will have had a shampoo  and will have been groomed before they meet their new families.

 puppies come with their Pedigree (their family tree) and their AKC Registration papers.

All of our babies are sold with full registrations As family pets and are not guaranteed against any show disqualifying faults. We are very proud of our bloodlines and welcome other families to enjoy beautiful babies if they wish to breed. but we do not guarantee our babies to breed or to be of breeding quality. They are quality family pets first and foremost.

An information packet is also included on how we house break (SEE BELOW), how and what we feed and how we suggest nameing your new friend.

we ask our families to please add our ("AlphaTex") Kennel name with the call name of the puppy as their registered name. of course no one is required to do this but we would appreciate it.

For an example of the registered name of a German Shepherd baby:

AlphaTex's Sammy Von Robertshaus

This means he was born at AlphaTex Kennels, 

his name is Sammy and he lives at the house of the Roberts family.

The sales contract and our guarantee to you are also included in their packet.  a 2 year replacement warranty against cronic, severe, Hip or Elbow Dysplasia.

Families that purchase our babies also agree to always provide adequate high quality food (NO CORN), plentiful clean water, proper training, and health care. Also every family must promise to:

 "Spoil their baby profusely".

 and they also agree to keep their babies in a fenced yard or on a leash at all times and to "NEVER" chain, abuse or allow the dog to run free unsupervised.

Micro chips are usually available for your baby for an additional, $25 fee.

Our families can charge the purchase of their puppy on Visa or MasterCard, from here on the web-site. Or A payment plan is available if necessary.

This includes a 10%  non-refundable, deposit when the baby is reserved and

1/2 paid & Taxes by delivery

 and the other 1/2 paid in four to six,  monthly  payments.

Paid by Post Dated Checks. Dated for the day that best fits in your budget.

when the last payment has cleared our bank, 

then the registration papers on the baby are forward to the new owner.

HOW DO I Reserve A BABY?

If you wish to reserve an AlphaTex baby, it is easy.

just decide which parents you prefer for your baby to be from. 

Then feel free to contact us by e-mail at

#################################################

     please email us at sandra@alphatexkennels.com 

  to Call us at (806) 652-3458  

 ####################################################      

 we will need the answers to  several questions from you. We will need to know about your family members, life style, activity level, yard size and fencing, etc. then we will pick the baby that we feel will best fit int0 your family. 

"Please trust us to make the decision for the best baby for you. We have been Showing, breeding, training and loving dogs, for over 45 years. we know each one of our parents and their personalities very well. we also know the babies that the parents  have had in the past and how the babies have developed at maturity. We can make a very informed decision in selecting a baby that will fit exactly into your family."

At the time that you reserve your baby, we ask for a 10% non-refundable, deposit, paid within 4 days of reserving the baby. Sorry to be fair to everyone we can not hold a baby more then 4 days without the deposit being sent.

When the baby is reserved we will need all of your information. Name, Address, Phone numbers. e-mail address etc. then we will make delivery arrangements to get your baby to you, when it is ready to meet it's new family. We love for families to come here and meet all of our"Fur Family", members. But we can make delivery plans, too.  Remember we do have a payout plan if it is necessary to get you the perfect baby for your family.  

{our Payout plan is as follows: you pay the 10%  non-refundable deposit when the baby is reserved. then pay up to half plus the Texas sales taxes (.0625}, when the baby goes home. At that time we need payments for the other half of the purchase price. These are Post Dated checks dated for the 4-6 following months . When the last payment is deposited and have cleared our bank, the  registration papers on the baby are mailed to you. We have found that this helps work the baby into the budget a little better for many families.}

Also remember that this is a very important {hopefully 10-12 year} decision. This is a new member of your family. Please make your decision very, very carefully and be sure that the decision is representative of the feelings of "every" member of the family.

Delivery

If you wish to come here to Alphatex to visit and "pick up"  your baby, that is fine. we are 1 hour North of Lubbock and 1 & 1/2 hours South of Amarillo, in the Texas panhandle. You are welcome to call (806) 652-3458 for further directions. 

If delivery , or meeting somewhere half way, is the option you choose, we can schedule that.  

Delivery of your baby is somewhat difficult because we do not  ship our babies by air. But sometimes there is no other option that is best for the baby.

We do offer delivery to with in 600 miles:

0-60 miles is free.

60-100 miles is $50

100-300 miles is $200

300-500 miles is $300

500-600 miles is $400 

or pro-rated to $.50 a mile

Most of our families choose to meet us half way to reduce the delivery costs.

Housebreaking

An excellent trainer told us many years ago how he recommends housebreaking and it has worked wonderfully for us and our  puppy families over the years.

First we train them to sleep beside the bed of the primary care giver. They are never in a crate or in another room away from their people. This keeps the stress of a new home to a minimum.

Make their bed (on the Floor) beside the head of the bed. Their bed can be nothing more then an old blanket folded into 1/4ths or a purchased Dog Bed or what ever.

Fit the puppy with a nylon collar that fits snuggly. tien attach a chain leash (it must be chain to prevent chewing) to the head of the bed. Make it just long enough to make the puppy stay on the bed.

Take the puppy outside after it eats, after every nap and just before bedtime. When you go to bed take the baby out one last time and then go to bed with him and attach him to his chain. If he cries or frets just reach down and pet him and reassure him that you are right there and he is fine. {Never be suckkered into lettting him sleep on the bed}. During the night when you hear the chain rattle take him outside immediately and then back to bed and snapped back on the chain.

In two or three weeks he should be completely housebroken 

          and will sleep right by your bed for the rest of his life.
