Swift Family Farm Puppy Questionnaire

At Swift Family Farm we are dedicated to raising happy, healthy Maremma Sheepdogs with stable and confident temperments AND matching each owner with just the right puppy for their family and their livestock. 
 
The following questions are asked to give us some insight into what your needs are so that we can match the right puppy with the right owner; keeping the character, ability and temperment of the puppy in mind, as well as the desires and needs of the new owner.  The more information we have, the better we will understand your expectations.
 
Please feel free to add any additional comments.  Completions of this questionnaire does not guarantee that a puppy will be available for you.  Puppies' personalities and abilities are matched with each prospective owner's lifestyle and needs, along with what the new owner has told us that they are looking for in a puppy - with temperment, conformation and instinct testing being the final determining factor.  
 
The puppy's welfare is foremost in considering placement.  Please answer the following questions as completely as you can, thank you.
