Our Puppy Application Process
If you are interested in a puppy from Legend Golden Retrievers, please fill out this puppy inquiry questions and email it to us at cdewitt@legenddogs.com  as a way of introducing yourself to us, giving us information about you before we contact you. This form also explains what kind of homes we choose to place our puppies in.

Our first priority is that our puppies live full and happy lives in a home with people who love them. We try our best to place puppies only in the most loving and responsible of homes and this inquiry form helps us in that process. Our puppies will always come back to us if they need to be re-homed- or to homes that we have approved who are willing to sign and honor our puppy care contract.

Puppies placed as 'companion/pet only' cost less, required to be spayed or neutered and are placed with limited registration. A limited registration only limits the dog from conformation events and breeding- though we strongly encourage obedience training for all of our dogs.

15. Please list THREE personal references (if you already have a veterinarian you can count this as one) with their addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. We need to know what your relationship is to the references and how long they have known you. These personal references will be contacted.

Please be patient, a new litter of puppies absolutely consumes our time for the first few weeks. Dog shows also consume a large portion of our time.. But we will get to you as soon as we can.
