As members of the Great Dane Club of America and Great
Dane Club of El Paso we always follow and adhere to the Breeders Code of Ethics and follow the Color
Code as suggested by the Great Dane Club of America.
We urge prospective new owner to take their time
and learn about the Great Dane through books, magazines, and affiliated
Great Dane clubs throughout the country. These clubs are made up of
members familiar with the breed, and they are excellent sources of
The GDCA's website, is a great place to start.
All our dogs and bitches are x-rayed prior to breeding
and declared free of hip dysplasia by a knowledgeable Veterinarian
or the OFA. We use all technology available to screen all animals
to be used for breeding, according to known problems within the breed
(e.g. OFA, cardiac check, thyroid check, vWD, PRA, etc.).
We spend the first few weeks and month socializing, testing and evaluating our puppies and litters.
All of our puppies
will go to their new homes with a puppy packet. Our puppies are being raised following the Puppy Culture program.
We begin taking deposits only after the litter is born, as there is no way of
knowing what colors and markings or what sex the puppies will be.
We keep all puppies with the litter until at least 7 or 8 weeks of
age and sometimes even longer.
All puppies have a signed agreement (contract) between us and purchaser that the animal
shall be examined by a Veterinarian of the purchaser's choice (and
paid for by that party) within 72 hours of purchase or delivery. If
the dog is deemed unhealthy or possessing an inherited defect which
would impair the use for which it was purchased (pet, show or breeding
program) we will refund the full purchase price upon the return of
the dog with a Veterinarian certified documentation of the condition.
The puppy will be returned at the purchaser's expense.
I breed only to produce a puppy or litter
very specific to improve my breeding program, something special for myself to show and compete with.
1 or 2 puppies the rest are sold as pets and show potentials.
Only 2 SHOW colors born in a harlequin
litter, Harlequins and Mantles. There are several other colors of various
combinations including pet-marked mantle, pet-marked harls and a variety
We do negotiate individual contracts, so what we are posting here are standards. We are listing standard price ranges, but they can and will change from time to time, depending on the litter and the breeding.
