Savannah and Rusty's #1 Male (Belgian Malinois/Dutch Shepherd Cross)
I'm excited to announce the arrival of Savannah and Rusty's first litter of puppies. Savannah whelped on Wednesday December 19, 2018, She have birth to 2 males and 3 females, she lost 2 females and 2 males during and shortly after whelping, but is doing great with the remainder of the litter .
These puppies will be ready to go to their new homes on Wednesday February 13, 2019 at 8 weeks old. I'm accepting deposits on these puppies now, the deposit is $200 which goes towards the purchase price of $750.
These puppies will not come with any registration papers because this is a cross breed, you're getting the best of both breeds wrapped up in one puppy!
Savannah is a black brindle colored female standing at 25 inches at the shoulders and weighing 65 pounds. Savannah's very outgoing, affectionate, but very protective of us towards strangers! Savannah is out of my foundation pair of Dutch Shepherds, Boudreaux and Roo.
Rusty is an AKC registered red sable colored male standing at 26 inches at the shoulders and weighing 85 pounds. Rusty's also very outgoing and affectionate, but extremely protective of us. He's also got great prey and decent ball/toy drive!
I expect these puppies to have the same temperament as both parents and suitable to be used for any job they're given! Things that potential owners need to know about this breed are that Dutch Shepherds are loyal, reliable, alert, watchful, active, independent, intelligent, and intuitive. Obedience through modest specialized training and discipline can achieve remarkable results. Gifted with a true shepherding temperament, they work willingly together with their owners and can deal independently with any task they are assigned. They are neither aggressive nor shy.
Dutch Shepherds have a strong character and independence passed down from their herding ancestry. Their owners need to be strong yet fair leaders. Although their character and traits suggests a strong potential for doing police or military work, care should be taken that this breed's seemingly sole purpose is not overlooked for its otherwise well-rounded character.
While there is no perfect dog for everybody, the Dutch Shepherd needs an active working lifestyle and an owner willing to make a commitment of proper socialization and training. Once the bond of trust is developed between the Dutch Shepherd and owner/trainer, their enthusiastic and intuitive nature needs little incentive or command to get them to follow through.
The Dutch Shepherd is an active and versatile breed. They compete in dog agility, obedience, Rally obedience, fly ball, dock jumping, disc dog, tracking, search and rescue, protection sports such as Schutzhund, French Ring Sport, Mondio Ring and Service Dogs of America. In The Netherlands it is still employed as a herder and the instinct is still strong in the breed. Internationally, the Dutch Shepherd is best known for use in law enforcement under the KNPV program. The Koninklijke Nederlandse Politiehond Vereniging (KNPV), or Royal Dutch Police Dog Association, was founded 27 October 1907, as an organization to oversee and test dogs for their suitability for police work. Dutch Shepherds with KNPV titles are sought after candidates throughout the world for police and military use, as well as sport competitors and personal protection dogs.
We do screen prospective buyers before we send a puppy out. Dutch Shepherds are high energy dogs and need to have some type of formal training, at minimum basic obedience. They need to be socialized with everyone and exposed to everything possible in order to become a well-rounded dog. This is not a breed that you just buy and put in the back yard and forget about them. They are very out-going in nature and very easily trained. They'll do anything you want them to do for a word of praise and a good brisk rub and a pat on the head.
All of our puppies come with a 1 year Health Guarantee, Health Records, micro chip, current vaccinations and current de-wormings starting at 2 weeks old. They also come with a Puppy Starter Kit and a Life-Time of Breeder Support. These puppies will have their dew claws removed. Contact me if you need to arrange transportation for your puppy.
We are required by the state of Oklahoma to have your puppy micro-chipped. The cost of the microchip and registration of the microchip is included in the sale price.
