New Puppy Form
As a breeder of the German Shepherds, it is our responsibility to make sure that a puppy that we have bred, which will have my name listed on the puppy’s registration papers, be placed in the most appropriate environment, as such, we would ask you to complete the following questionnaire to give us a better idea of your family, your lifestyle, and how a puppy will fit into it. Our breeding program is centered around the betterment of this versatile breed and the promotion of responsible dog ownership. Purchasing a puppy is not something that should be done on a whim but should involve much research and planning. Be prepared to assume the financial responsibility of care for a puppy including inoculation, vet care, good quality food, and licensing, etc. Please complete the questionnaire with as much detail as you can. Any questions left unanswered will not automatically disqualify, but will hinder my responsibility as a breeder to match the best puppy to your situation. Though some of the questions may be considered highly personal, please be aware this questionnaire is highly confidential and that no one but Vom Issam Haus kennels will see the results of the questionnaire. If you wish to send an email with your answers you may send your email to:
