Puppy Application Form

This application will help me to determine if one of my puppies is a good fit for you and your family. Your responses will help me take your requirements/needs and the needs of the puppy into consideration and enable me to make a placement that is right for both of you. Please answer the questions as completely as you can. A completed form must be submitted before arrangements will be made to meet any available puppies or for your name to be added to any of my waiting list. Thank you for your time and interest in one of my schnauzer puppies.

Please note: If you fill out this application, I expect that you are seriously interested in one of my schnauzer puppies and would be willing to wait for the right puppy. There can be a 4-6 month wait for my schnauzer puppies. If you are not willing to wait for the right puppy for your family and want a puppy NOW, please don't waste your time and mine by filling out this application. My pups are part of my family and I am only interested in placing them in homes where people take the responsibility seriously and aren't just looking for a puppy on a whim. Good things are worth waiting for!
