 If the puppy’s ears are not standing by 4.5 months of age, the owner must contact Ulvilden German Shepherds. Ears will come up and go down during the teething process. Have your vet examine the ears, at this time. If the ears are taped at this time, the ears will stand. Failure to follow this advice will void the warranty.


If this puppy has been purchased for breeding, the puppy is guaranteed have both testicles descend (if a male puppy), and to certify for hips and elbow at 24 months of age.  Testicles may take as long as 12 months to descend. In the case of a pet, the puppy should be neutered at 12 months of age, and this warranty does not apply.




Parasite control: our puppies are all checked for parasites and de-wormed accordingly, once you get your puppy, he or she can contract these parasites (just about anywhere where there is canine traffic) in your environment. Previous worming does not cover a new infestation and it’s the buyer’s responsibility to have the puppy re-examined every so often for the first few months The Buyer understands that the GSD Breed may have other health concerns not covered in this Warranty. Conditions described as “Genetic Predispositions” are not passed from parents to offspring but are common throughout the entire breed. Under no circumstances is the Seller liable for Vets bills incurred for treatment.


Puppy deposit is $500.00 and is only refundable if your pup is for any reason not available!




Our warranty is a replacement puppy warranty and NOT a money back warranty. We do NOT refund money. There are No Exceptions to this.
