Rippley and Luke's #5 Female (Pure Bred Dutch Shepherd puppy)
I'm pleased to announce the arrival of Rippley and Luke's litter of purebred Dutch Shepherds born on Friday March 31, 2023
I'm accepting deposits on these puppies to reserve them until they are ready to go home on Friday May 26, 2023. The nonrefundable deposit is $200 which goes towards the purchase price.
These puppies are purebred, but do not come with any registration papers.
Rippley is a Black Brindle female Dutch Shepherd that stands 25" at the shoulders and weighs 60 pounds. She's got a very strong toy/ball drive and an over the top prey drive and she's protection trained.
Luke is also a purebred dark colored Black Brindle colored male that stands at 27" at the shoulders and weighs 95 pounds. Luke's very affectionate and outgoing and very protective of me when strangers are around. Luke's got a high prey drive and a high ball/toy drive.
I expect these puppies to have the same temperament as both parents and be suitable to be used for any job they're given!
Things that potential owners need to know about this breed are that Dutch Shepherds and Belgian Malinois 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.
They 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, this breed 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, Belgian Malinois and owner/trainer, their enthusiastic and intuitive nature needs little incentive or command to get them to follow through.
They are 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 and Belgian Malinois are 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.
I screen prospective buyers before we send a puppy out. Dutch Shepherds very much like the Belgian Malinois 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 backyard 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 my puppies come with a 1 year Health Guarantee, Health Records, microchip, 2 sets of vaccinations and current dewormings starting at 2 weeks old. They also come with a Puppy Starter Kit and a Life-Time of Breeder Support.
