Stud Services.

Below are my requirements for and information about stud services from my dogs. Truce is available for stud service.

Requirements for Female

These are the requirements a female must meet to be eligible to receive a stud service from one of my males.

Eyes: Current ECR or CERF exam (within 12 months of when the pups would be born)
Hips: OFA Permanent Good or Excellent, OFA Prelim Excellent, or PennHIP under .50 on both hips
prcd-PRA: Tested, or by parentage with proof, Clear or Carrier
MDR1: Tested, or by parentage with proof, any result
HC: Tested, or by parentage with proof, Clear
DM: Tested, or by parentage with proof, Clear or Carrier
Age: 18 months to 7 years old at the time of breeding
Color: Any color approved by the breed standard
Registry: AKC, UKC, or NAMASCUSA - puppies must be registerable as AKC Miniature American Shepherds
Structural Soundness: Pictures of the female stacking and pictures or video of the female moving must be provided for evaluation.
Type: Pictures of the female's head from the front and profile must be provided for evaluation
Pedigree: A pedigree must be provided and approved.

Stud Fee

The stud fee for one of my males is pick of the litter, or $1,000, to be determined by me when the puppies are 8 weeks old and I have evaluated the puppies either in person or through stacked pictures. I must have the option to evaluate the puppies in person if I decide to do so. $500 of the stud fee is required at the time of breeding, to be returned when the puppies are 8 weeks old if I decide to take pick puppy.

Definition of a Litter

I define a full litter as a litter with 3 or more puppies that were born alive. If a stud service from one of my males results in 1-2 live puppies, then the dam owner will be given the option of another stud service, or a reduced stud fee of $500. If there are no live pups, the dam owner has the option of another stud service or a refund of the $500 that was given to me at the time of breeding.
