You will find our German shepherd puppy pre-purchase questionnaire on this page. If you email us seeking a German shepherd puppy and we have done a breeding, confirmed a pregnancy or have German shepherd puppies already born and still available, we will ask that you copy and paste the questionnaire in an email so that you can answer it and return it.
Please visit our available puppy page before taking the time to fill this out as we may not have done a breeding. If you are not looking for a puppy within the time frame of our potential litters, please don't send this form in. Instead bookmark our site and check back when you are ready.
These questions help us to the best of our ability determine if one of our puppies will fit in to your home situation and if the German shepherd puppy will be happy and in turn if you will be happy with the German shepherd puppy.
They also may seem personal but they are necessary.
We have had people ask if they should send a deposit with the questionnaire. We need this first, this is what helps us determine if our puppies will work for you. If we just took deposits we wouldn't have this form.
We have enjoyed almost 2 decades of success as a selective, small breeder of German Shepherd Dogs. Our policies are consistent and clear in the information that we send to you. They are derived from our knowledge of the breed and our many years of experience. The well-being of our dogs from birth to death is our primary focus. We thank those of you who work with us for sharing our commitment to the life-long well-being of The German Shepherd Dog.
We ask you to read our testimonials which are only minimum as we had to reduce space. Also please click here to see what our clients have to say on Yelp!
We'd also like you to read our FAQ's page before contacting us. That may give you some insight as to if this breed is right for you. Again we will try our best to help it work for you if it can.
Please take your time and give as many details as you can below each section and please address our questions.
