Puppy Buyers Questionnaire
We are as particular about where our puppies go as you should be about who you buy
from, so if you are interested in a dog from DEBEAU DANES please fill out this
questionnaire. Please give these questions a lot of thought and answer them as
completely as you are able. These puppies are family and have been given the best care
while with us. We want only the best possible homes for the ones we can't keep.
