Your Next German Shepherd

Adoption Process

 

All planned litters are posted on the planned litters page as soon as we have completed our research and finalized a breeding plan. If you send us an email or give us a call we will add you to our reservation list for future litters.

 

Current and Planned Litters

 

Here at Gableridge German Shepherds we take our job as breeders very seriously.  We take great care to ensure that the dogs in our breeding program are sound and that puppy owners are matched with the puppy that fits their needs and lifestyle. 

 

Adults and Youngsters  

Occasionally we have young adults
from the breeding program 
available for adoption.  These can
be females and males who have
retired from breeding or younger
males and females that we have kept back from a litter to evaluate for show or breeding purposes.

Adoption Process

It All Starts with a Plan

All planned litters are posted on the planned litters page as soon as we have completed our research and finalized a breeding plan. If you send us an email or give us a call we will add you to our reservation list for future litters.

Once a pregnancy has been confirmed we will start to contact potential puppy buyers on our reserve list and ask for a deposit of approximately half the purchase price.

This deposit will guarantee you a puppy from the litter. It is a serious commitment on the part of the buyer and is non-refundable except in the case of an unforeseen circumstance which result in no puppies being available.

Plan a Visit

We strongly encourage prospective puppy buyers when possible to visit the kennel and see the dogs before making any decisions. German Shepherds are not the breed for everyone.

A visit will allow you to meet the dogs and have a chat with us about what your specific needs are situation are.  It will also give you an opportunity to find out more about us, our breeding philosophy and our history in the breed. 

We allow visitors by appointment only.  Please contact us early to set up a time and day which is convenient

Puppy Purchase Contract

All Gableridge Puppies are sold with a purchase contract which sets out the responsibilities of both seller and buyer with respect to care and health of the puppy.

Pet Insurance

As a Gableridge puppy buyer you are eligible for 6 weeks of complementary Pet Health Insurance.  Coverage is valid for a period of 6 weeks starting at 12.01am on the day you take home your 

puppy. We know you take great care in ensuring your litters are placed into loving homes and that you provide owners with the information they need to fulfill the needs of their new puppy. By enrolling each puppy in our 6-Week HeadStart Trial Coverage, you'll be helping their new owner take the first step in keeping them happy and healthy.The voucher effective date is the day the puppy leaves your home. To ensure the new pet owner receives coverage, you may activate the trial coverage up to 3 weeks prior to the effective date (the date the puppy goes home) or no later than 7 days after.

 

Adults and Youngsters

 

Occasionally we have young adults from the breeding program available for adoption.  These can
be females and males who have retired from breeding or younger males and females that we have kept back from a litter to evaluate for show or breeding purposes.

Our kennel dogs make excellent companions, with time and patience they adjust well to their new homes and thrive on the attention and love provided by their new owners.

We also assist our puppy buyers should they be in a situation where their adult puppy needs to be re-homed.

Pictures and background information on adult dogs will be posted here.  

Please check back frequently or contact us directly to find out whether there might be an adult available in the near future.
