Mountain Home Alaskan Malamutes
Mtn Home Puppy Application Questionnaire
Providing us with the following information will help us to match our puppies with the best possible  homes. In addition, we want to be sure that YOU are happy with your Mountain Home Malamute!
We spend most of our day outside doing various kennel chores in the summertime and on the sledding trails during the winter, so it's kind of hard to catch us by phone.  We're including this e-mail questionnaire to give you a chance to let us know a little bit about yourself and your interest in our dogs. These are basic questions that we'd ask if we were to meet you in person or speak with you on the phone.
We care very much about every puppy we bring into this world, they are part of our family. So we really want our puppies to live with people who are seriously interested in sharing their companionship and who will provide loving, lifelong homes for them.
Please copy and paste this questionnaire into an e-mail, complete it and send to us at mtnhomemals@gmail.com
