New Puppy "OWNERS MANUAL" Please Read!

Use this Online Questionnaire to Apply for a particular puppy that is available now.
Use this form to be approved for a puppy and get on our "WAITING LIST" for a puppy from a future litter.   
When puppies are born we will give people who are on our "Waiting List" the "first pick of the litter" based on when their Puppy Application was received.  There is No Charge for being on our Waiting List until after puppies are born.  You will be notified first of new puppy births if you are on our "Waiting List".





(this takes about 15 minutes)


2.  If we approve your PUPPY APPLICATION, we will then email back to you a PUPPY DEPOSIT AND SALES AGREEMENT for you to approve.  This is our contract that details everything about your purchase of a particular puppy.  (You can see a copy of this contract here on our website-see the Menu on the Left.)


3.  Once we receive the PUPPY DEPOSIT AND SALES AGREEMENT back from you by email stating that you "Agree"to its terms, we will then email you a bill for the required SECURITY DEPOSIT which you can then pay by credit or debit card ( PayPal processes the payment, but you do Not have to have a PayPal Account.)  This Deposit Payment will hold your chosen puppy for you until it is time for him or her to be given to you. 

You know about us from our website. 
We would like to have a little information about you and your family since you are a potential buyer/adopter of one of our puppies.   Answering the following questions will help us ensure that each puppy we place goes to a good home.
All you do is enter your answer to each question by typing in the Block to the Right of each question. 
You can type in as much information as you want.  There is no limit to what you can type in the larger boxes. 
After answering each question, do Not hit the "Enter" key since this will send us an incomplete questionnaire.  (Sorry, there is no way to modify this feature. )
If you hit "Enter" by mistake, no problem, just go up to the top of your Web Browser and click on the "Back" button and resume answering questions where you left off. 
So, use your mouse to move from one Answer Box to another.
After answering all the questions, just click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of this page and it will send your Puppy Application to us immediately and a screen will come up confirming to you that it has been sent.
We will probably get back to you about the approval of your Puppy Application the same day that you apply. 
IF YOU DO NOT HEAR BACK FROM US WITHIN 2 DAYS PLEASE EMAIL US AND SAY YOU SUBMITTED A PUPPY APPLICATION.  (Rarely, but it can happen, the software messes up and we don't get an Application. )

All our puppies have been started on Crate Training before you receive them. The alternative indoors is a dedicated small room that is "child-proofed" for safety and has a cleanable floor.) _________________________
