Dear perspective puppy buyer;

Completing this questionnaire in no way guarantees that we will have a dog/puppy for you. It is simply a tool to aid us in finding the most
appropriate homes for all of our available dogs/puppies. It is very important to us, here at Black Mask Rottweilers, that we find the very best
forever homes for all dogs produced or re-homed by us. Please take the time to fill out the questionnaire as completely as possible. This is
only the beginning of the interview process and we will not place any dog/puppy into a home when all communication has been done via email.
We insist on meeting you in person and forming a relationship with you, to even consider placing a puppy with you. We will not give pricing
information via email, so don't ask, and we do not sell guard dogs or personal protection dogs to anyone, for any reason, at any time. If there
are questions that do not apply to you, simply put an n/a in the space provided. We reserve the right, at any time, to refuse any person, for
any reason. As soon as we receive and review your questionnaire, we will be contacting you via phone within a week. If you don't hear back
from us, we did not receive your questionnaire. Please follow up with an email or a phone call. Thank you so much for taking the time to allow
us to get to know you better.

Tracy L. Matty
Black Mask Rottweilers




This questionnaire has been completed truthfully, to the best of my ability, and is therefore submitted for consideration.
