Adoption Process

If you are interested in one of our puppies, please call, text or email us. Our contact information can be found under the contact tab.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Deposit/Puppy Contract: We have a $500 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy for you. Along with the deposit we ask you to sign a puppy contract to secure your puppy.  That contract can be found under the "Forms" tab. Payment methods we accept are cash and personal checks.

Select a Puppy:  Like all of our new puppy owners, we eagerly await the arrival of each litter. We love to watch them change throughout the first 8 weeks they are with us. While your puppy is with us, you may watch our website and FB pages for picture updates. Or we will gladly keep you updated with recent pictures sent to your phone or email. You are also welcome to visit by appointment. When it is time to select your puppy, we go in order of the deposits received. The selection process typically starts when puppies are 5-6 weeks old.

Bringing your puppy home:  When puppies reach 8 weeks old, they are ready for their new homes. At the time of pick up or delivery, the remaining balance is due for the puppy.

Schedule a health check with a licensed veterinarian within 10 days of transfer. We require a health check within 10 days for our health guarantee to be in effect.

Items that come with your puppy:

  • Puppy food to last through transition to your brand. (we use Purina Pro Plan Puppy)

  • Newborn collar           

  • AKC papers

  • Veterinarian health certificate

  • Vaccination Schedule

  • Puppy info packet

Items to bring along or have ready for your new puppy:

  • Leash

  • Puppy food

  • Water & Food bowls

  • Large Crate & dog bed

  • Chew Toys

Shipping: Although we always recommend visiting our ranch and meeting your new puppy and its parents, it can be difficult for those at greater distances from us.  We are happy to deliver your puppy within a distance of 600 miles from Custer, at the expense of the Buyer. The expense is the actual cost of fuel, going both ways. It is also an option to meet halfway at Buyers expense for any milage over 100 miles. Please keep in contact with us if you prefer to use these services so that we can arrange times that work for all of us. We can also arrange for a shipping service if you are further away.

Keep in touch:  Welcome to Kinder German Shepherds! We love to hear from you and receive pictures of your new family member. We may use your pictures on our website of our past litters, or on our FB page. We love to show off your puppies as they grow, and it's so much fun to hear and see how they are doing.
