No puppy is ever promised to be able to breed. To many factors can change things.
Reasons for Having Puppy Purchase Requirements
I realize that many factors are involved in helping to provide you with the happiest, healthiest puppy possible. I also realize that how a puppy is treated, exercised, fed, socialized, vetted goes right along with helping to cause or prevent issues with or with out a genetic basis. After many long hours of research, talking with vets and breeders and raising many puppies , I came to the conclusion that what I ask for in our contracts is the best possible chance for your puppy's good start and hopefully living longer. Of course I am always available to help with advise for any issues or questions you may have for your puppy's lifetime. You are most certainly free to do as you wish with your puppy.
However, please don't ask me to back up the purchase contract of your puppy if you have not followed the signed contract which was presented along with your puppy when you purchased him/her. VLZ
An Important note about Hip Dysplasia-HD
1) Not all HD is Genetic or Congenital only. It can also be environmental, foods fed, injuries and more.
2) HD can also be brought on by early spay/neuter ( especially before 12 -18 months of age)
This can cause the bones to not grow at a proper rate causing issues in bone plate growth
Not to mention bringing on the much higher risk of cancer as much as 65% higher.
3) HD can happen when puppy is allowed to become overweight, be injured, rammed into by other pets or kids, causing undue stress on growing ligaments. etc The loosened Ligaments allow the Ball to slide out from the socket causing wear and HD

About Kennel Visits
No Alzimm Puppy is EVER Placed in a new home, Sight unseen !
Isn't it worth waiting a little while if it helps to assure you of a healthy puppy?
Sires, Dames and Facilities are Always shown when you pick up your puppy.
Most of our retired pack family is kept here also. We do occasionally place one in a very good home.
Visits are scheduled by appointment only according to breeding, puppy happenings on the grounds.
Due to the risk of Parvo Contamination, Puppies, Nursing Dames and Pregnant Dames are not available to the the public until puppies have had their first shots and they have had time to work in the puppy. Alzimm is proud to be a 100% Parvo -Free kennel and we work hard at keeping it that way.
No Alzimm Baby is ever shipped or delivered. We require that you personally visit here and see the parents, Grandparents, etc when you pick up your puppy to take him/her home.
Puppies are not "picked" until go home day and in pick order only.
This allows for a far better match to your needs and for the Puppy's well being.
