                                      Windy Ridges Goldens Puppy Questionnaire
 All of our Golden Retriever puppies are sold by private written contract. All prospective homes are screened very carefully to
ensure one of our puppies is being placed in a loving family environment. We require this questionnaire to be completed by all
    prospective puppy families. This does not guarantee you a puppy. The Breeder will contact you with acceptance of your
questionnaire and when pregnancy has been confirmed a $500 deposit is required for your placement on our Waiting List for an
  upcoming litter. The remainder balance is to be paid when the puppy is to be picked up at 8-10 weeks of age. Some of the
 questions may seem intrusive, please do not be offended, we just want to make sure that both puppy and owner will be well
 matched for years to come. Picks of puppies ARE NOT chosen on a first come, first serve basis. The Breeder does there best to
                                match puppies personalities to those of the prospective owner.
