Chioke
Rhodesian Ridgebacks
PUPPY INQUIRY QUESTIONNAIRE

Thank you for your interest in a Chioke Rhodesian Ridgeback. At Chioke Rhodesians we choose our puppies’ homes carefully.  Rhodesian Ridgebacks are appealing because of there striking physical appearance, however, like all purebred dogs, they have certain traits that may not be appropriate for every owner.  Because of their size, strength, and naturally protective nature, they are not for everyone.  Please understand that we want to make sure that you get the dog that’s right for you, your family, and your lifestyle.  That’s the purpose of this questionnaire.
The completion of this questionnaire does in no way guarantee you will be approved for a Chioke Rhodesian puppy.  This is meant merely as the beginning of a dialogue between you and I.
  Thank you for your time and interest in our puppies.

Please copy and paste the following questionnaire into a email back to me or fill out my contact page and I will send it to you.
