Questionnaire For a Puppy (Please print out and mail to the above address.)
Thank you for your interest in our dogs. We appreciate your answering the following questions. All information is confidential and used only by us.
Pups sold as pets will leave us on Limited Registration. Limited Registration means that you cannot get papers for the pups should you breed the dog unless we agree to change the registration. If you are interested in full registration and possibly breeding you must show us that you are serious about training bloodhounds for Search and Rescue or Showing in Conformation. You must be willing to get OFA health clearances on your dog. Upon receiving this questionnaire filled out completely from you we will reply within 10 days. This questionnaire is just one part of our Contract. Pups can be seen by appointment only.
I am sure this process seems a bit offensive if you have never been through it before, but it is our way of protecting our dogs. We invest a lot of money and time in our dogs and we want to ensure that our dogs are placed in safe loving environments for their lifetime. We do NOT see these animals as chattel to be handed off from person to person once an owner is tired of it or discovers that this is not the breed for them. Our dogs are not for resale. We reserve the right to take any dog back should you decide that you do not want to keep it for any reason.
