Sky was bred to the AMAZING SG Vegas Von Der Burg Hinte IPO3 Kkl. Vegas finished third in one of the most prestigious IPO competitions in Germany. He is owned by World Champion, Erin O’ Shea. He is competing Nationally and aiming to represent the US in International competition! He is very environmentally stable and social with both people and other animals. He was a love bug when I met him, wagging his tail, circling with happiness, and pressing into my legs to be pet! Very sweet boy!!! Hips & Elbows A1 Normal and DM Normal/Normal.
There are no long coats in this breeding. Both Solid Black and Dark Sable puppies available!! We expect these puppies to be very confident, sweet, athletic, social and smart! Most of our past puppies out of Sky have gone to homes with children/young adults!

**Health Clearance documents and x-rays are always made available upon request**
Puppies are $2000*( with potential for up to a $500 refund) and sold with AKC limited registration (NO EXCEPTIONS). A $500 non-refundable deposit is required once litter is confirmed. *Please note that we recently changed this policy as we need to know which buyers are truly committed to providing a home.* WE DO NOT SHIP PUPPIES! Payment by cash or money order only. No personal Checks.
All puppies are raised in our home not a kennel and are exposed to household noises, cats, horses, children, lakes, cars and chickens. They are handled daily by both adults and children. We also create a “play zone” to encourage confidence with new environments by exposing them to different obstacles and articles on a daily basis.
We will have started crate training with each puppy (in their own crate that they go home in) to help with their transition.
**We evaluate our puppies from the moment they are born to check for any hint of a serious nerve (extreme timid or fearful) problem which will not be tolerated. We constantly temperament test the puppies (ourselves and with independent evaluators) for solid temperament, courage, trainability, and response to people. Any puppy buyer can be assured that your puppy has been extensively evaluated before it leaves Von Whitehall to not have a severe temperament problem or he/she will not be offered for sale. We take this commitment seriously and it is our promise to you.**
Puppy Warranties and Incentives
- Puppy will be suitable for purpose with a stable temperament, and excellent health and sold with a contract.
- Puppy will be healthy upon leaving Von Whitehall and sold with health record- including shots, microchip, and deworming.
- We will provide a trial period of premium health insurance to every puppy- renewable each term thereafter by puppy owner. Again, another way we can emphasis our commitment to our puppies.
- AKC limited registration and pedigree provided to buyer. Absolutely no breeding under any circumstances but all puppies are eligible to compete in AKC performance events for awards and ribbons. We highly encourage puppy buyers to explore performance events.
- 2 year hip and elbow warranty (puppy will not have moderate to severe hip or elbow problems) or full refund and YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RETURN THE PUPPY! We are horrified at most contracts that require the buyer to give up their beloved family member in order to fulfill the contract warranty. And, most breeders WILL NOT give a refund to you but instead give you a replacement puppy (that most likely will be from the same bloodlines as the puppy that had a health problem).
- If your puppy has any other serious genetic condition verified by your vet and ours than a full refund will also be provided without forcing you to return your family member.
- Lifetime support for your puppy and help rehoming throughout the puppy’s life should that be necessary. Each puppy also comes with 2 puppy training books; AKC brochures; vaccination record, pedigree, and their crate to get them off to a great start with their family.
PLEASE BE AWARE. NO BREEDER CAN GIVE A 100% HEALTH GUARANTEE!!
Just like with people, there is never a 100% guarantee a puppy will never have a health problem. Sometimes, genetic problems pop up with even the healthiest of parents. However, we work hard to prevent health problems by only using dogs with multiple health clearances. But, even with healthy parents-there is no guarantee. Our promise is that should a puppy have bad luck by getting an unfortunate roll of the genetic dice than we will stand by you and the puppy.
- All owners who complete an approved puppy class (by 6 months of age) will be refunded $150.
- All owners whose puppy (up to age 18 months) passes an AKC CGC will be refunded $150.
- All owners whose puppy achieves an AKC title in Rally, Herding (HIC not to count), Agility, Obedience, or achieves an IPO 1 (by 2 years of age) will be given a $200 refund. We changed the incentives in the hope that puppy buyers would continue their dog’s education and have fun venturing into competition.
We reserve the right to modify our incentives and contract, at any time, to best achieve our goals. However, each puppy sold will come with a contract and all terms on that contract will be honored regardless of future changes.
** Von Whitehall German Shepherds STRONGLY encourages all breeders to complete the training incentives!**
**A portion of every puppy sale goes to support German Shepherd health research conducted by the German Shepherd Dog Club of America, White Shepherd Genetics Project, or a German Shepherd Rescue Club**
Von Whitehall German shepherds reserves the right to decline to sell a puppy at any time at our discretion. Quality, loving homes will be selected.
