We thank-you for filling in our Puppy Questionnaire. Once it is reviewed we will also have a personal interview. Due to distances involved this can be done over the phone. In most cases we will also require a home check.  Please do not take this personally but we must ensure that our puppies are truly going to the proper forever home.
