Puppy Questionnaire

Puppy Buyer Questionnaire

Help us match you with the right pup
The purpose of this questionnaire is to find the right pup for your needs and the right home for the pup. Your honest answers will help us match you with a pup that shows the beginnings of the qualities you need. It's not a test—there are no right or wrong answers—it's simply a tool, and we appreciate your taking the time to fill it out.

Working Expectations:

Describe the ideal dog for your present needs.




What are your primary goals for this pup: companion..... farm work..... agility..... trialing.....


If a farm dog, what are the typical duties this pup might be expected to have?






Do you need a dog with a lot of drive and high energy? Or are you looking for a laid back mellow dog?






Social Expectations:

How much of its day will this pup be with people? How much time will the pup be by himself?



Where would the pup spend the majority of its daytime? (house, outside - yard, pen etc.) Bedtime?



Are there children in the home (or frequent child visitors)?




Do you want a dog that is sociable and friendly with anyone it meets, or do you prefer a dog that shows more reserve to strangers?




Add any description that you feel would help others to understand the kind of dog that you want.






Physical Expectations:

Do you have a preference in terms of sex and/or color? How set are you in these preferences? We place pups first based on temperament, but if all things are equal, sex and color will be considered.



Do you plan to spay/neuter this pup or are you considering breeding?


Are you willing to have the dog's hips checked by a veterinarian when it is about a year old?


Please provide the name, address and phone # for your veterinarian.



Will you be willing to return this pup to me or let me rehome him in the event that you cannot keep him?






AS A BREEDER, IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO EVALUATE POTENTIAL BUYERS AND MAKE SURE THAT THE PUPPY HAS A SAFE, SECURE, AND SUITABLE HOME FOR THE REST OF ITS LIFE. AS A BUYER, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO EVALUATE BOTH THE BREEDER AND THEIR DOGS TO YOUR SATISFACTION.
