Purchasing a Puppy

Step One

“Complete and electronically submit the Autumn’s House of GSD Client Questionnaire. The client questionnaire is a 100% Digital and Secure document. Keeping your personal information and ours secure is our top priority. Completing this questionnaire does not commit you to purchase nor Autumn’s House of German Shepherds to sale a puppy. This questionnaire helps us match you with the right puppy for your family and home. We also get to learn more about the puppy’s new environment and potentially place you on the waiting list. Please click the link provided to begin the application process.”
Client Questionnaire

Step Two

You will be notified either by phone or by the email you provided in the client questionnaire after we have screened your application. After the litter has arrived, and puppies have been examined by our veterinarian and stated to be healthy, we will begin accepting puppy-hold deposits only on puppies in the current litter. Clients are placed on the waiting list in the order of the applications received and approved. A minimum deposit of $500.00 is required to hold one (1) puppy. .

Step Three

$500.00 puppy-hold deposit. This step is done completely outside of this website. We use PandaDoc, a 100% Digital and Secure document signing and payment transaction service. Forms of payment accepted: Cash (in-person), credit card, or personal check. Any returned checks will nullify the transaction.

Step Four

Draw up the final sales contract, make final payment, and make arrangements for the transfer of your new family member. As with Step 3, the contract will be sent through PandaDoc, a 100% Digital and Secure method. Personal checks must clear the Breeder’s account before the puppy is transferred.

New Owner Information

Congratulations! May you and your new family member have many happy and healthy years together.  For first time dog owners, knowing what to purchase prior to the puppy’s arrival can be just as cumbersome as preparing for a new baby.  We have prepared a New Owner’s Checklist and safety tips for your use. To begin the 2-year health guarantee, Autumn’s House of German Shepherds requires the new owners to complete a new puppy examination with your veterinarian within 72 hours of bringing your puppy home.  Please schedule an appointment with your veterinarian well in advance.  A copy of the New Puppy Exam Form is provided in the link below for your convenience.  A copy will also be provided in your puppy folder.  Please have your vet complete and sign the form.  Return completed form to the email address provided in the instructions within 48 hours after the exam is complete.   

What Comes with Your New Puppy

Glad you asked! All puppies adopted from Autumn’s House of German Shepherds are AKC Registered and come with a prepaid official AKC Pedigree. We also offer a full 2-Year Health Guarantee from the date of purchase. See full terms of the contract for more information. To ensure the health and safety of your puppy, all puppies are dewormed and vaccinated by our friends at Gunston Animal Hospital at the ages and intervals determined by our vet. All puppies come microchipped with the AKC Indigo ISO Microchip and a pre-paid lifetime recovery service in AKC Reunite. Follow the instructions in your puppy pack to activate this service. We also offer Free Lifetime Support via phone, text, or email. There is nothing more frustrating than not knowing what to do in certain circumstances. Whether it is feeding advice or training tips, we are here to assist. For medical emergencies, immediately contact your veterinarian.

Puppy Folder

Each puppy’s record begins on the date of whelping and contains the health history of the puppy including weight, deworming schedule, medications, vaccine history, microchip information, medical records from our vet, AKC Registration information/forms and helpful tips.
