There are two(2) other required sets of shots that must be given, at the age of 8 to 9 weeks and then again at 11 to 12 weeks of age (refer to puppy's health record).

SEARK German Shepherd's Temperament/Socialization
Your newly purchased puppy/dog must be taken to a licensed veterinarian at the buyer's expense within 72 hours of purchase for a check-up and a report sent to the breeder. If your puppy is found to be ill a replacement puppy will be offered. All additional expense associated with a replacement puppy such as a pet carrier and shipping will be paid by the buyer.
If a new owner fails to take their new puppy to a vet of their choice within 72 hours this will render a replacement puppy warranty null and void. At NO time will a total or partial refund be offered.
Within 2 business days of a vet's certification of illness, or death, the buyer must notify the seller in writing.
Hips & Elbows
Recent information gathered through research about hip dysplasia has caused us to reconsider our hip guarantee. Research by the SV concluded that 70%-75% of hip dysplasia can be attributed to a number of environmental conditions. That means genetics are responsible for 20%-25% of the conditions that contribute to the disease.
Environmental conditions that can influence hip dysplasia can include but are not limited to: a dog/puppy being overweight, type of food/diet, excessive or inadequate exercise, exposure to extreme cold, being crated or penned up extensively.
Since these environmental conditions will beyond our control once the puppy leaves our homes/kennels, we regrettably cannot guarantee or warranty hips any longer.
The breeder does not guarantee against any environmental temperament problems.
Environmental referring to abuse, neglect, teasing, or failing to train the dog properly. The breeder strongly suggests the buyer to take their new pup to obedience classes to learn proper handling techniques.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or problems that arise during your pet's lifetime. We would also appreciate your updates as this helps to keep us informed on the bloodline and of your satisfaction.
If for any reason the buyer is unable to keep the dog/puppy at any point in its lifetime, we request having the option of taking back the dog/puppy or helping to find another suitable home. We would never want to see a dog/puppy end up in a shelter.
There is NO written guarantee nor implied guarantee by SEARK German Shepherds that any puppy/dog will be show or breeding quality.
Teeth, testicles, hips/elbows and ears are not guaranteed.
4. You will receive AKC registration papers with your new pup if both parents are AKC Registered. If the pup or adult is a German import the typical waiting period for SV papers can be up to 6 months.
