BOSS

$3,000.00

Interested: Alyssa Ruge

A VERY large lap dog. You must be able to handle his size Tall.  Stands over 6 feet tall on hind legs. 150 + lbs. 

 I have been very protective over him as i am with all my dogs and i do NOT allow them to come into contact with strange dogs. This means that he is TRUSTING that his person will not put him in harms way.

He is a soft loving kind wonderful dog. He likes other female dogs, lol... used as a stud dog. 

I want to find someone with common sense and the love and knowledge of my dogs.  He doesnt mind other people or kids or animals, he just wants you to save him from them is all.  He AVOIDS fights and contact with other animals. He has NEVER been in a fight.  He doesnt even beat up my other males. He doesnt know how to act around other animals that he doesnt know as he looks to me for his behavior. I dont allow tom-foolery.  He is to stay beside me and to lay down in my lap most of the time. So expect him to look for guidence from you. He has spurts of energy in which he LOPS happily for about 3 min's. He is big so things may get bumped into.

He will NOT work for you. He will NOT do obedience. He is slow to think. He might not come when you call for the first 5 or 10 min, then he will come after he has decided he is finished peeing on everything. So i dont call him to come until i know he will. If he doesnt come, i go get him and drag him back to the place i called him from or put him in a kennel and point my finger at him and scold him. He doesnt like to be scolded. He is a lot like an Irish Wolfhound.

He will need to be driven across country cause he is way too big for the plane and that costs money. Transporting him might cost you about 700.00

Buck
Freemont x Trixy


Nice pup, sensitive, easy going, lover. Devoted to owner.

Will be your best buddy!

Buck is very wolfy, thin like the Irish Wolfhound and tall. He is intellegent and will learn easy enough. None of my dogs are trained per Obedience, Heeling or sitting or laying down, but they all have MANNERS.. they do NOT jump on the fence. They KNOW that NO' means they will get their ass kicked.. though some of them forget. lol.

Buck is very interested in learning things. He wants to know about everything. He is inquisitive and he will go up to anything to smell it to figure out what it is. He needs this in his life as this is how a dog figures stuff out. 
Buck would make a good Search and Rescue dog. He likes people but is somewhat standoffish, he is not overly in love with people. His temperament is RIGHT ON.. He does have some energy once in a while and is still a pup with spurts of happy dancing for about a min or two. He has a brain and it must be used. It would be a sad day in this dogs life if no one excelled in his education and knowledge of life. This boy could read your blood sugar level and will know when you are not feeling well. Like all my dogs, this pup is not a 'backyard dog'.

Capone
Boss x Vegas

   His dad (sire) is a giant and his mom is a gsd size. Sire is Boss and weighs 150 lbs. Mom (dam) is Vegas who weighs about 70 lbs. Capone weighs about 110 lbs.
    Capone loves everyone once he gets to know them but is leary of strangers. He barks more than what i like and he has more energy than what i like.  This is all compared to our dogs. Our dogs dont bark so when strangers come over and Capone barks a couple of times, this is more than i like. All together about 10 barks. He will not stop barking until i yell at him to shut up' or 'knock it off'. Then i have to show him the stranger so he can smell the stranger. If the stranger is standing still and staring at him, he will not like your stranger. If the stranger goes on about his business then Capone will not care much about the stranger though he will go smell the stranger. If the stranger sits down and calls Capone over, Capone will go over to the stranger for smells and pets. 
Capone is still young and needs obedience training as well as socialization. We live out in the valley so we do not get around town or people. Capone doesnt know about : parks, parking lots; forests; busses, trains, freeways, cop cars, fire engines, etc.. (get my meaning?)  You will need to show him the world. Once he learns all of that, then he will be a very nice dog. He could learn to do amazing things. He could be a service dog though a tad bit larger than what i would want a service dog to be, he could support you as he is a heavy big boned dog. 

He does have some prey drive in him but not alot. He has been over to my daughters who has kids and cats (lots of cats) and he was on a leash and laid down beside my feet. He was interested but never tries anything while i am around. All my dogs are to do NOTHING, unless i tell them they can. YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW THAT..  Capone is a LOVER... and he is pretty much Velcro. He looks to me for all his needs and for everything. He will not like to have someone that will allow him to be 'free' as he will then be LOST.. He needs to be attached to someone. KNOW THAT... As he learns about your ways, he will mold to fit. It takes TIME you must have PATIENCE. The contract will say that he must come back to me if you do not want him.

$1,600.00
 


Topper

Topper is a scary looking dog. He is a velcro dog pretty much. He likes other dogs at this young age not having been a stud as of yet. He is smart and too intellegent. He has a lot of AA in him in that he can be sneeky but he is not good at it. 

He LOVES to go where ever you go. He likes kids and other animals. He doesnt have much prey drive in him. He is good with strangers, not overly excited but a tad bit cautious. He will approach them if they are not scary looking. He is not fearful at all but is aloof a bit.

He is not really a working dog but would like to please you as long as it is not for long periods of time. At this young age he doesnt have patience. 

He likes his freedom, so you need to train him to cages, leashes and reign him in. Get him use to being a 'dog' .  He doesnt think he is a dog and he feels the world is his oyster.
He will NOT come when called as he thinks he is KING. He is not a digger nor a chewer. He is very intellegent but he doesnt want you to know it. Kind of like a GSD. 
As he gets older he will protect you and your family on looks alone. When he figures this out, he will then take that position if you do not stop him from being a scary looking dog. His looks are scary enough so you do not need to train him for guard dog. At this time he is NOT a guard dog and can be walked in crowds while minding his own business. I like this dogs temperament, he will focus on you, unless you screw his training up. This dog will take it and run with it if you dont step up to the plate.

What is the range of prices for an adult?

Dont quote me on this:
If i am tired, and have over 10 bitches and she is not spayed and it looks like a gsd: 800.00
If the bitch looks like a Malamute: 800.00
If the bitch resembles a dire wolf is large friendly, loveable and kind and i have had a litter and she is spayed: 2,000.00
If the bitch is not spayed the price goes up and if i am in a good mood: 3,000.00 not in a hurry, not in a bad mood 4,000.00
If the Bitch has never had any puppies and is 3 yrs old not spayed: 600.00
If i only have three bitches and you want one, 20,000.00 (maybe)
If i have 5 males and this male is the lowest on my test sheet, 600.00
I have sold a male Irish wolfhound looking dog for 600.00

 

Any idea how long it will be before I'd be able to buy one?

As soon as my female adults have had a litter or two. If the pups came out great, i would re-breed them. If they came out looking like gsd puppies, i would bred to a different male. If i dont really like the pups, i would keep one and sell the female.

At this time, i dont have enough puppies for everyone on the list so i have to keep my females to have pups in a year.

 


The Older American Alsatian

Older American Alsatians become available for re-homing when they are retired from our breeding program. Prices on them vary, many are around 1800.00 and you are responsible for picking the dog up and/or any transportation fees.

There IS still a screening process, just as there is for puppies. I will only place these dogs in the right homes.  Contact me by e-mail and let me know you are interested and what your household is like. Send me photos of the home and other animals that will be in the new 'pack'. We shall converse back and forth and I will give you my thoughts on the introduction of the dog to the new place.

Next you must fill out a contract. You can use a puppy contract and change the wording and email it to me in a Word Program through the E-mail is fine... I will fix, fill in, change any wording on my side and send it back to you.

You will then re-read it and change or fix anything, (please use a red font color). If there are no changes, sign and date it and E-mail it back to me. I will now sign and date my copy and send it back to you.
   Next, you shall pay for the dog and we shall set up a time for the neutering. The dog/bitch will stay with us for at least one week after surgery if a female and only one or two days if a male.

Should I choose a male or female?

MALES:

Males are more like the lion, more laid back and more loving in the lap kind of dogs. They will accept strangers more easily than a female will, are less noisy and don't dig as much . This all ties in with their role in life to do the least possible. lol...  They were made for procreation and that's what they do best.   They eat and sleep to keep up with the only real job they have. Males are also more girthy, larger heads, more king like, regal, longer coats and thicker coats. Male pups of a litter will get about 10 - 20 lbs heavier than the girl pups in that litter.

FEMALES:

Females on the other hand have more emotional challenges to deal with as they must dig dens, flurt, jump around, stick their faces/butts, near males cages and romp off. They are more vocal and more hyper. They must feed the babies, find food, clean the babies and protect the babies and the territory.

Females are smaller, lighter in bone, thinner heads, more racier looking... though i do keep only the girthiest of the litter for breeding.

Most folks looking for a companion dog will fall into the male category.  Those who get females are happy with them, but I keep telling them that they should have gotten a male. They will not know what cheese cake tastes like unless they take a bite. lol.

Introduction to the New Home

Since these dogs are bonded tightly to their owners it is rather difficult to adopt out one of my dogs, so I must make sure (on my end) that my young adults have the temperament and training to be able to change to a new owner.

1. I don't spend a lot of time loving and bonding with them, which will mean that when you get them, YOU put in your time, love attention, training and working with them, then they will bond easier to you for you will be giving this to them.

2. I bring ALL my dogs in the home and all of them have house manners. I give everyone who adopts my dogs, a background on the dog and how i do it in my home. this is so that the new owners can follow my outline, my work, my training so that your new dog will feel the same as it did when at my home. not many pick up on that and they allow the dog to go wherever it wants through the home , doing things THEIR way. When one does that, the dog will eventually settle down and get use to the home being theirs, but it would have gone more smoothly in my opinion had they followed my lead with their new dog.

These dogs take about six - seven months to really transfer over.. the younger the dog the easier it is to transfer the pup over of course. I have had some transfer over really quick, instantly... but the way i look at it, the longer it takes to transfer the dogs full self (body and soul) over, the more the BOND is strong for his new family and owner.

In all dogs, the more time you spend training and bonding and with the dog, the more you get back in the long run.

What will it cost to own an older dog?

An American Alsatian at 1  1/2 or 2 yrs old will not need to go to a vet until about 10 yrs old. There will be no medical bills unless created by the humans in his/her life that includes any accidents because a human wasn't paying attention.

You may decide to take your dog in for health check ups of course. All my dogs should go to the vet for their first check ups and EVERY dog should get a COMPLETE stool sample tested. This includes tests for gearida and Coccidiosis as we live on a farm and mice, rats, snakes and other critters fall in the water and die, get into the food, shit and piss everywhere and our dogs may sometimes just kill and eat them.

The cost of food, housing and training will be the only costs.

The first year's expenses will probaly include several supplies, especially if you are a new dog owner. 
Leash, collar, bowls, grooming tools and other incidentals will add up to around 100.00
NOTE: Adults are not too interested in toys. Most love to chew on pigs ears and bones.

You will also need a good vari kennel or travel kennel that can be used to keep a dog in while you are gone for long periods, or while you travel, or just as a bedroom for the dog will cost about 200.00

It will cost about 40.00-50.00 a sack of decent quality dry food a month.
I recommend mixing in cooked chicken and rice. You can feed one Cornish hen a week and two eggs with the shells on them a week.  (a bag of rice will cost about 8.00 and will last you about six months).

Food Cost per month: $30 - $60.00 per mo X 12 = $360.00 - $720.00 per year say 1,000.00 a year
Vitamins and minerals as supplements may cost 10.00-45.00 for the year?

Total cost of this dog for the first year would be about $670 - $1065.00 and Roughly $400-$800 per year (I rounded up to include even more incidentals) thereafter.

800.00 x 10 yrs.  (should live till 13 - 14 yrs old)

5 to 8 thousand dollars total life of this dog is my estimate
 

"If I love my dogs, how can I get rid of them?"

    If you have read all the pages of this web site, you have grown to know the person I am.  In knowing that; you then know that I am not an ordinary gal.

    It takes perseverance as well as a strong will, desire and a hard core to do what I am doing.

   There are not very many who could give up dogs or 'adopt' out dogs to 'forever homes' and there have been some blogging going on that I am kind of heartless. That if i loved my dogs, how could i get rid of them.

   What I have to say to that is:

1.  In my opinion it is selfish of me to want to keep such a WONDERFUL, fulfilling, great dog .... all to my self.  How selfish of me not to want to give the dogs I love and hold dear to my heart to another human being who may need this particular dog.

2.  How dare they mold me (a person that they have not met, that they do not know) into something that they have conjured up in their weak, selfish and hateful minds.  What they say and do, I have no control over and I will not worry myself about...

3.  I dont have to prove to anyone that i love my dogs. My belief is that I will see them again.  I shall be surrounded by over 3 thousand (not virgins, but) dogs...

4.  How great is my love that I could give such a wonderful gift to another?

So it is all in how you look at it.  If you have love in your heart for others, you will see it my way.  If you have love of yourself and wish to horde all that you see that is great and good, then you would not understand me, and that is fine with me
