I did ask about that, and their response was what I replied back to andaka. First looking at their site, that was something I noticed as well. However, their response and the paperwork they currently have was good enough for me.
And I think they are adorable as well! When we visited they had two 8 week puppies about to go to their homes, soooo cute! Looked like little black bears.

I also notice you are from Seattle. I visited there last May for my belated 21st birthday present. Absolutely loved it there! I want to visit again. From what I noticed and my cousins telling me, Seattle is a very dog friendly city. I saw them everywhere in stores and restaurants! I personally think that is great. Memphis is not really that dog friendly, and I think that's unfortunate. I'm jealous! Lol.

Haha, when I actually looked them up I thought they had chosen that name because they are near Memphis. Turns out that is their actual last name. I almost asked if they were related.

This is something I have asked about and they were upfront and honest with me. The parents I am looking at (Niko/Zeva litter) have both been X-rayed, but Niko was x-rayed slightly before 2 years of age, so it was a "prelim" and told me it is not an official rating (I don't know much about how the ratings work, but I don't really understand why a couple months would make a significant difference). However, his prelims showed he had a rating of "Good". Zeva was also x-rayed, but the position that Zeva was x-rayed in the breeder thought was not appropriate for the OFA (said they would ask for a redo to get an official rating), but the vet saw no signs of problems and said he would rate them "good". She has all the paper work for both dogs. I think they are going to redo them at some point to get an official rating.

She has also told me that there have not been problems with past litters or any adult dog that they have had. I know that I should take this with a grain of salt because they are just words, but she has been honest with me with everything else that I feel okay with going ahead and getting a dog from them. I believe some of her other dogs are OFA official, but I had only asked about the parents I was looking at.

I will be getting a puppy from here:

Presley German Shepherds - Home

I have visited the facility before considering a dog from them and checked on their Facebook to see feedback from people before me receiving dogs from this breeder. Everyone I have asked has only had a positive experience with this breeder. They showed me every dog (which everyone looked great and had wonderful temperaments), gave advice as to which parents/litter I should be looking at for my needs, and have answered every question I have had. They have been there for every concern I have presented. They seem to really care about their dogs, and I like that a lot.

Thank you! I cannot wait to get my hands on my puppy.

I know, don't they? Their masks make them look like twins. When we walk them, people always ask if Koda is Beau's baby, lol. They have similar coloring, but definitely two different breeds of dogs.

Thank you! And you definitely should! I have not personally been to Graceland (even though I have been here for all 22 years of my life ), but my relatives who have really enjoyed it. Beale Street is supposed to be the "happening" place, and has good music. It is the bar strip though, so lotssss of drunk people on the weekend. I would suggest if you visit to visit our zoo. We have a wonderful zoo here that I wish more people would take advantage of. We also have Pandas!
