Puppy Questionnaire

Please fill out this questionnaire, if your interested in a puppy or older dog. You might check if we have a litter coming if none are listed, or there might be a wait of a few months before we have a litter available. 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 before the puppies are born; visits are not allowed again until the pups are 6 weeks old. All puppies are temperament tested to better match you with the right puppy. You can copy and paste this questionnaire as an EMAIL to dogmom@k9dejavu.com
