Potential Owner Questionnaire
Thank you for your interest in a Paxton Dane puppy!
Please take a moment to fully complete the questionnaire below and tell us about yourself.  
The information you provide here will help us determine your suitability for ownership
and match to our expectations.  
This Questionnaire may seem involved but as a potential owner
you should be pleased that we place our puppies very carefully.
In 2007 and 2008 the people of California defeated Assembly Bill 1634,
but the battle against similar legislation has been ongoingin other US states and California.
Please be aware and informed about the realities of this type of legislation.
I do believe in, and strictly enforce, age appropriate spay/neuter of companion puppies by contract.
However many of these proposals, including AB 1634, call for the spay/neuter of every pet at 4 - 6 months of age,
which is inappropriate and detrimental to the proper growth and development of most breeds,
and infinitely more so for the giant breeds, which have a longer growth and maturity cycle, given their size.
Proper and natural growth is essential to developing the necessary and balanced skeletal structure
that will  support a long and healthy life.
Please contact you assembly and senate representatives to express your opposition
to this type of legislation should it be proposed in your state.
