Herdabout Shelties Reg'd ... Puppies -- Adoption Form



Puppy Questionaire Form 

Here at Herdabout Shelties the puppies well being is our utmost concern and first priority. Please be sure to read and understand our Costs & Guarantees before filling out this question Form.

We reserve the right to refuse a sale.

Wanting to purchase a puppy? 

Each puppy has an individual personality and temperament and we try to best suit the individual puppy with the home that the puppy would perform best in. Therefore we need to find out some information about you and your family in order to match you with a puppy that you will be pleased with.

If you could kindly answer the questions below it will help us select the puppy with the best suitable personality. It would not be responsible for us to place a dog with a high drive for agility or herding into a home that wants a calm, laid back, couch potato-type dog.

We don't mean to scare anyone off, or offend anyone in any way with these questions.
We just want YOU to be very happy with the puppy you purchase, and we want THE PUPPY to be happy too.
