Below is an application form. I really perfer to talk with people about Boxers. However I cannot keep people straight anymore and this application seems to make it easier for me. Some of the questions may seem to be a little in depth. I have, what I feel, are good reasons for asking these questions. When I place a puppy I am as careful as if I were placing a child.
Please do not hesitate to follow up your application with a phone call 541-935-0112.
I do respond to every application I receive.
If you do not get a response from me then I didn't receive the application.


It is easiest if you copy and paste this application form into your email.Or copy it to your word program and then fill it out and send it either as a doc. or copy it into your email. I'm sorry for the hassle but I am not yet computer literate enough to make it a sendable document straight from the internet.

Do you understand there are some health guarantees that accompany this dog? However even though the breeder assures the parents are free from any health problems or genetic defect, dogs are a product of their ancestors as well. White puppies do not have health guarantees. However they are a product of the same ancestors as the colored puppies. The careful breeding is the same.

  Dogs like children get sick, injured and develop illnesses like cancer, eye ulcers, etc. Are you prepared to provide appropriate medical care for these problems if they should occur? God willing they will not.??_______________

   As you can see from the questions there are costs involved in adopting a puppy or adult. It is important that you have funds for the initial cost and subsequent costs as well. I appreciate your contacting and researching reputable breeders. We will, however, be more expensive. Our breedings are generally well planned and from quality parents. Parents who are bred to compliment each other not just because they are convenient. I have prepared a page discussing costs. It is very straight forward. What it may not say is buying a cheaper puppy or dog can often cost more than a quality one when all is said and done. And, the association with a long time reputable breeder is “priceless.” Puppies and dogs I place all go to their new homes with extensive pages of instructions to answer every question and my availability for the life of the dog to answer questions.

I always respond to every application I receive. If you have sent the application back via email and you have not heard from me then it is very likely I didn’t receive it. Please do not hesitate to call or write again.
