It is great to have found a dog with solid nerves that doesn't mind living in a house with three wild and crazy kids! We truly are enjoying her.
Thanks again for all of your help over the last couple of years. ...we finally found the right dog for our family.
Black seems like a common German Shepherd color, but it's not as popular as you may think! Solid black German Shepherds can easily be confused with actually often confused with bicolor or black and tan dogs from a distance, which contributes to the belief that black is most common.
In fact, amongst the four official coat colors of the GSDs (sable, bicolor, black and tan, and straight black), pure black puppies are the least common you'll find! This is true because the black color gene is the least dominant (recessive) of the four color genes.
If you want to buy an all black German Shepherd puppy from Hayes Haus, you may have to wait a bit. We rarely have solid black German Shepherd puppies for sale.
Visit our Sable German Shepherd puppies for sale page to learn more about German Shepherd colors and to reserve your sable puppy!
The Sable coat color in German Shepherds is the most dominant gene. More dominant than GSDs of other colors because sable will show even if there is only one sable allele. If you breed a Sable male dog or Sable female dog, with 2 sable genes the result will be a sable German Shepherd puppy 100% of the time!
Many of the pups that become available at Hayes Haus are sable in color and we often have a mix of light sable and dark sable puppies. Click here to request info about current sable German Shepherd puppies for sale at Hayes Haus.

Our future health guarantee is unmatched in the dog breeding industry:
Here at Hayes Haus we have developed a breeding methodology that makes identifying German Shepherd dogs fit for breeding a systematic process. And though the process is complex, it's all based on a simple acronym; T.H.I.S (Temperament, Health, Intelligence and Structure).
When considering a dog for breeding at Hayes Haus, the dog's health and structure are evaluated using tests, x-rays and other diagnostic tools such as DNA analysis and blood work. To us, these evaluations are cut and dry. If a dog isn’t the proper size or has health issues that could potentially affect workability of the puppies, they are ruled out. Furthermore, if the dog we're looking at for potential breeding has any structural problems (however minor) that will limit working or breeding potential, we determine the dog unfit for breeding.
These 'cut and dry' tests seem simple, but are based on in-depth research and experience with the German Shepherd breed as a whole and should not be taken lightly. To ensure your German Shepherd puppy is as healthy as possible throughout their life, you need to make sure you choose a breeder that takes these factors into consideration.
On the other hand, temperament and intelligence require a bit of a different evaluation when it comes to choosing breeding pairs for out litters. Tests include, but are not limited to, an in-depth pedigree assessment, and consideration of the dog's behavioral history and upbringing.
Analyzing a dog's behavioral history is by far the most difficult assessment to ensure accuracy on but with that said, it's quite possible the most important...
Doing so includes how the dog interacts in everyday social scenarios as well as how he or she has been kept (living conditions). If you could choose between having your future puppy's mother and father having lived in a cage their whole life, or inside with a loving family, which would you go with?
The answer is simple.
Two other factors we consider are the extent of the dogs training and their enthusiasm while working with a handler.
If we mistakenly chose a dog with sub-par temperament for breeding, the decision could (and most likely would) negatively affect the temperament and personality of each puppy in the litter.
While we recognize that perfection is impossible, we do our absolute best to protect against potential mistakes. And it's important that whichever breeder you choose does so as well.
Choosing dogs for breeding is NOT a task Hayes Haus takes lightly. It is arguably the most important piece of the puppy puzzle when creating new litters that will have a positive place in this world.
Healthy and temperamentally sound dogs are paramount to producing helpful dogs in the future.
