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

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/or, 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 45+ 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 choose a baby.

 of course the best way to get the best baby for you, 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. 

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 Bravecto, 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 grain.

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 and protectors, 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 naming 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.  It includes a 2 year replacement warranty against chronic, severe, Hip or Elbow Dysplasia.

Families that purchase our babies also agree to always provide adequate high quality food (little Grain), 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 the house, in a fenced yard, or on a leash at all times.

 And to "NEVER" chain, abuse or allow the dog to run free unsupervised.

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

 we will need the answers to  several questions from you. We will need to know about your family members, life style, activity level, 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 Shepherds, 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 best 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.

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) 292-7445 for further directions. 

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

 

   We also can arrange delivery of our babies by air.

We will meet you with your baby, at the airport in Lubbock or Amarillo.

A ticket  to and from your home to Lubbock or Amarillo, is usually cheaper then shipping fees.

And we get to meet you personally. And our biggest concern is that is easiest for the baby to be loved and cuddled all the way to their new home.

 

We do offer delivery to with in 600 miles:

0-60 miles is free.

60-100 miles is $50

100-400 miles is $50-$200

400-600 miles is $200-$300

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. then 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 suckered into letting 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.

Questions and Answers

here are a few frequently asked questions and our answers:

We hope this helps with your decision:

 

Which breed is best for my family? 

    always do your homework up front, because this is hopefully a 10-12 year commitment. But I have been showing, breeding and training German Shepherds for over 40 years, and of course I think they are the best breed of all. They are very loyal and they bond to one person for life. They love and protect the whole family. But only one person is their God. and they want to be with that person all the time.

    As far as being easy to train. It is not so much that they are easy to train, it is just that they learn everything and retain it for life. Whatever they learn as a baby they will do all their life. So it is very important that you train them very early to do the things that you want them to do. Like ride in the car, stay off the furniture, walk quietly on a leash, meet strangers, house training, how to act around children, cats, other dogs, livestock, etc.
    They are naturally very protective and NEVER need to be trained to attack. That training is for the military, law enforcement, or professionals, only. A family pet will come out to protect when needed, {I know from experience, my shepherds have come out to protect for me 3 times in my life}. But the rest of the time they are loving pets.
    As far as a male or female. That is your choice, of course the males are bigger and more impressive. The females are smaller. But other then that there is very little difference.  Some people think females are more protective, and when they have babies that may be true in some lines, but the rest of the time there is little to no difference. Of course if you want to breed you have to have a female. And with our babies that is always your choice. You get full breeding rights. If you want to breed a female that is fine , or if you want to use a male for stud service that is fine with us.
 

    What is the difference in German, American or Eastern European, bloodlines ? 

    West Germans are more driven and more protective and better mothers then the American lines . But Eastern European are even more driven and active then the West German.  we have found the little West German females to be much better mothers then the larger Eastern European, or American females. We have found that Full bred European GSDs are better left for the military, law enforcement, or professional trainers. In the past they have shown that they are usually too driven for most families to enjoy fully.

 what we like to breed is a family pet. We want an active dog that will chase a ball or a burglar, but will calm down and take a nap with the children.

You can not beat an American GSD for beauty, movement and loving temperament. So we like a little American blood in the European to calm that temperament down a little, and help them have better fluid movement and angulation. So they will take the nap with the children, still chase the burglar and still be beautiful doing it all.

What if my GSD baby's ears haven't come up?    

    Yes it is normal for some ears to be slow coming up. Actually the larger their ears are going to be the slower they will be coming up. But they will come up eventually, but it is a trying , but very cute time until they do. After they are 6 months of age if there are still having ear issues. There is a very easy way to help them to stay up. Go to Tractor Supply type store and buy a glue call {Tear Mend}, it is an upholstery glue, for gluing leather. Put a little dab on the top inside tip of both ears. Just to the inside between the ears. Put it on both tips and put them together very briefly to spread the glue out on both and then pull them apart for a second then line them up tip to tip and press them together very quickly. this glues the weaker ear to the stronger ear and will form a little T-Pee on the top of their head. they will look funny but when it comes apart the ears should stand fine. If not repeat the procedure until it stiffens up.

Another thing when they are teething at about three to four mos. of age and their teeth hurt so bad they could care less about thinking about their ears. Make sure they have a big hard raw hide bone to chew on. That helps their mouth feel better. as soon as they are through with teething, their ears will come up for life.
