Puppy/Dog Questionnaire

We realize this may be a bit time consuming but we are very careful when placing our puppies into their new
homes and we want to ensure a match that will last a lifetime!!  Please copy and paste the questions to an
email along with your answers, our email link is down below.

Pet/companion puppies:
Are sold with a limited registration on a spay/neuter contract

Show prospects:
Are sold on a co-ownership to first time show owners.  We will only sell a show puppy outright to proven show
homes.  You must have titled a Doberman/Whippet with an AKC American Championship in the past five
years and you must have a reference from a professional Doberman or Whippet handler or two DPCA/AWC
members if you are an owner/handler.

This is to protect the pedigrees of our bitches and stud dogs.
