WHAT OUR GUARANTEE DOES NOT COVER

PUPPIES: Lauterbach German Shepherds WILL NOT offer any GUARANTEES for a puppy replacement due to stomach twist, or stomach bloat or stomach torsion. These conditions are caused by large feedings, and immediate exercise after eating. Puppies should be fed several small portions daily, and not allowed rough play after they eat. As they get older the likelihood of this happening diminish greatly but at a young age care and supervision should be exercised while and after they eat. All dog breeds who's anatomy has a deep ribcage area are prone to stomach twist even as an older adult.

SHOW QUALITY PUPPIES: Lauterbach German Shepherds WILL NOT GUARANTEE any puppy purchased from us, specifically for the purpose of Show Quality, GUARANTEE this puppy will indeed become a Show Winner. We also WILL NOT GUARANTEE, the eventual overall adult size of any puppy that is purchased from us. The conditions of amount and type of food fed, amount of daily exercise allowed, and the dogs environment, are all out of our control. Customers wishing to title and show their puppies when they get older, it is your best interest to modify diets and exercise, so your young adult grows and meets the criteria for the German Shepherd Breed Standard.

 Lauterbach German Shepherds never places any restrictions on AKC registrations.
Once you purchase any puppy from our kennel it is yours to do as you desire. We believe your puppy should be a part of your family in the best possible enviornment.
 
 One request we do have is this: If at any time due to a lifestyle, family, environmental change your are forced to give up your beloved German Shepherd we want and expect you to contact us first. Many times life dictates situations to us that may cause your canine family member to be separated from you. Moving for a new job, divorce and health issues can expectantly change your life overnight. We work with several German Shepherd rescues within our state of Illinois and there are many excellent options available in locating the correct new home for your beloved dog. Never,NEVER take your dog to a humane shelter with a day limit imposed on finding a new home before the dog is euthanized! This is totally unacceptable to us.
