is designed to ask questions in order to help you and Howling Winds
decide if a Shiloh Shepherd is the right breed for you. We will (with
the help of the breed founder, other breeders and/or animal behaviorists)
gladly help you select the right puppy for you. We have been watching
the puppy's behavior, personality and temperament. The information on
this form helps us get to know a little bit about you. We urge ou to
be very honest with us about yourself and your home life, as these puppies
rely on us to find the very best homes for them. Where one puppy may
be perfect for a busy household, another may panic and need a quiet
home. We have found that Shiloh Shepherds, indeed, have their own personalities
