Here at Ingram German Shepherds, we take the buying process very seriously. Our Team will interview any potential homes first before we agree to sell a dog. Whether it’s a Working Line service dog or a beloved pet, our goal is to make sure you receive the dog that is right for you. We handpick and prepare our dogs to make sure they are suited for their new owner. In our breeder process, they are trained to bond with you and perform in the right situation.
Once we have decided on the puppy or dog that is right for you, we will provide you with an IGS purchase contract to review, sign, and return.
After the contract has been signed and finalized, a deposit is due. When the deposit is paid, your dog or German Shepherd puppies will be marked reserved.
Payment balances are due at the time of pickup (or within 24 hours after shipping arrangements have been made). No dog will leave our possession unless payment has been made IN FULL. Local buyers are welcome to pick up at Lost River Ranch, and we ship state-to-state and provide worldwide shipping.

German Shepherds make good pets! If you’re considering adding a German Shepherd to your household, it is important to understand more about the breed before you invest in one.
Occasionally IGS has average (low drive) German Shepherd puppies that are suitable for a family. A highly bonded German Shepherd is a joy to own. In the first few months, you will need to specifically set aside time to bond with your IGS. Forming a bond with your new loyal companion is THE most important process and can take 6 months to a year to develop.
German Shepherds are known as one of the most popular dog breeds all across the world. German Shepherd Dogs (GSD) are often described as stoic, beautiful, hard-working, loyal, and courageous. This loyal breed of dog is suitable for variety of tasks, including protection, acting as service animals, and working with law enforcement and the military.
Getting a dog is a huge commitment. A German Shepherd is highly intelligent and loyal. In the beginning they will require a significant amount of training, exercise, and attention to ensure a healthy, balanced life.
As you might imagine, big dogs are more expensive to feed than small breeds. Feed your adult GSD between 2.5 and 3.5 cups of quality kibble per day, twice a day. We recommend a premium blend of Fromm Four Star Hasen Duckenpfeffer grain free dog food. Highly active dogs should be eating at the top end of the scale, while inactive older dogs should be eating at the bottom of this scale.
Bathe once a month, any more will cause dry irritated skin. Brush frequently to combat shedding. German Shepherd dogs have a unique double coat to keep your dog comfortable in both cool and warm weather, shaving is NOT recommended. Using a Furminator grooming tool to help with de-shedding is highly recommended. Trim nails once a month. Clean ears every week using ear drops (never water) and keep an eye out for infection.
Generally, the most common health issues faced by German Shepherds are all avoidable. Focusing on regular exercise, a grain free- high protein- raw diet, good oral hygiene, proper socialization, and regular health visits will optimize your pet’s health.
German Shepherds are highly intelligent, but when that intelligence is left to its own devices, problematic behaviors can materialize. Find a reliable trainer for obedience and agility training. Regular exercise is a must. Providing physical challenges for your German Shepherd, like hiking, swimming, and open running will allow your GSD to put its athleticism and intelligence to good use.
