BSL Targets the Wrong End of the Leash!

Divinity American Staffordshire Terrier

Puppy Questionnaire

We want our puppy to be a much-loved member of your family so, in order that we may effectively appraise the suitability of placing a Divinity Amstaff with your family, we require you to answer the following as completely as possible.

Upon receipt of your answers, we’ll determine the suitability of your family and home and will advise you of our decision. Please remember, there is no right or wrong answers as each situation is as unique as each Amstaff puppy. We screen all applicants prior to placing them on our waiting list. We take a deposit to hold your puppy until 8 weeks of age. You may visit our home before the puppies are born; visits are not allowed again until the pups are 6 weeks old but we will gladly send you numerous pictures by email. All puppies are temperament tested to better match you with the right puppy.

You can copy and paste this questionnaire as an email to info@divinityamstaffs.com.
