be completely honest in your answers. The questionnaire is to help match you up with the puppy who will best fit your needs,
it is NOT an interrogation. If you’ve previously given up a dog for barking issues, I do not want to place a vocal pup
with you. This questionnaire will help me get to know you better & will help make sure that my pups go to the appropriate
homes for them. Please email the answers to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org please also include your phone number in
the email so I can call you with any questions. You may also call me with any questions as well (if you don’t already
have my #, email me & I’ll gladly give it to you.)

If I do not have the puppy to fit your needs, I am more than willing
to help direct you to another breeder who may have what you are looking for. When
looking for a breeder, please look for one who has the same ideals and goals that you have. Don’t be shy about asking
me as many, or more, questions than I have asked of you. You are about to add a new family member – kind of like a marriage
– make sure that the decision is right for your family.
