Puppy Questionnaire

Please fill out this questionnaire, if your interested in a puppy. We screen all applicants before placing them on our waiting list. When a litter is born, we take a deposit to hold your puppy until 8 weeks of age. You may visit the kennel when the puppies are 6 weeks old. All puppies are temperament tested to better match you with the right puppy. All pets are sold on Limited Registration (They are AKC registered but their offspring can not be).

Should you have problems with this form, please print the page and mail it to:
