Torrid Zone PORTUGUESE WATER DOGS
Thank you for your interest in a PWD pup. Please complete this questionnaire to be considered for a puppy. My goal is to further the breed, so I am extremely careful in my breeding practices and selectively breed only when a perfect match is evident. I take pride in owner handling my dogs in the show ring. To compete with professional handlers I must be producing top quality dogs, physically, and mentally. Not every dog is selected for a future of showing and performance. I like to think of even my pet owner's dogs as Champions of their domain.
I have owned Portuguese Water Dogs for over 18 years, although my breeding program started in 1998. I don’t breed often. The litter of puppies I am expecting is a special breeding for me. Once born the litter will stay with their mother at least 8 weeks. During the time, the puppies are with the litter they learn how to deal with their world. I recommend the book "How to Raise a Puppy You Can Live With" by Rutherford, this gives a good explanation of my philosophies towards socializing the litter and what I expect from you to continue this process. I am sure you will be grateful to know you will be getting a quality dog, along with the guidance and support often needed when adding a dog to your household.
I am selective on how I place my puppies, so please complete this questionnaire. It is important to me that these pups go to the best homes possible and that you also get a dog that is going to fit well with you & your family.
I commit to life long responsibility for these pups. In other words, I commit to take them back if they are ever abandoned or if (for any reason) you could no longer care for them.
Please fill out the questionnaire, after it is completed, click on the submit button. Your answers will help me understand your needs and desires so I can make the best match possible for your life-style and requirements.
I look forward to getting to know you and having you join the Torrid Zone PWD Crew.
