Puppy Pre-Adoption Application

This form asks questions to help you decide if a Shiloh Shepherd is the right breed for you. We will (with the help of the ISSDC Breeders) gladly help you select the right puppy. We have been watching each puppy’s behavior, personality and temperament. The information on this form helps us get to know a little bit about you. We urge you to be very honest with us about yourself and your home life, as these puppies rely on us to find the very best homes for them. Where one puppy may be perfect in a busy household, another may panic and need a quiet home. We have found that Shiloh Shepherds, indeed, have their own personalities and needs.

additional comments:

There is a $500.00 fee that will reserve your pup for you. This fee will apply to the purchase price of $1550.00 (Pet companion with a spay/neuter agreement) $1800.00 (upgradeable breed potential) and $2500 (show/breed with puppy back agreement), which will be due at the time of puppy delivery or pick up. The deposit is non refundable unless a puppy is not available, or it is determined by Rain City Shilohs that there is no suitable puppy at this time.
