Thank you for your interest in our bloodhounds.  Boerner's Bloodhounds is very
careful to match our puppies with the best prospective owner based on a
variety of attributes.  Each puppy has their own personality and potential;  
therefore, based on temperament, living conditions, family atmosphere and
your goals for your dog, we try to make the perfect puppy placement.  Our
ultimate goal is to place puppies in loving homes who will utilize the value of
our breeding program.  All pups are evaluated beginning at 4 weeks old, to best
determine which will be better suited for trailing or for a family pet.  

With that in mind, we need you to complete our Puppy Questionnaire and
answer each of the questions.  The questions are not meant to discourage or
offend, but will help determine if a bloodhound is right for you and/or your
family.  All information is confidential and only used by us.  There are some
things prospective owners do not think of that may create issues later on down
the road.  We do not want to see pups or adults end up in shelters or worse.  
We invest a lot of money, time and love in our dogs and puppies and do not
want to see them moving from home to home or abandoned.  The application
will also give us an idea on where prospective owners will need pointers and
tips for training/raising their puppy.  After your questionnaire is completed, you
will be placed on a waiting list or lists, depending on your answers.  Some
prospective owners are looking for working dogs and only want a particular
gender and others are looking for particular colors...

Bloodhounds are not meant for everyone.  Please note that bloodhounds are
one of the most misunderstood of all breeds.  They are very gentle,
affectionate and shy, companionable in temperament and very responsive to
kindness.  However, they are also clumsy and one swing of their tail can clear a
coffee table and antiques can easily be destroyed by one stroll through the
living room.  They do not know their size and one swing of a bloodhound's head
can spread saliva across a 20 foot room.  They range in size from 75 to 130
pounds (averaging about 90-100) and require attention to ear cleaning, eye
goobers and large appetites.  A bloodhound MUST be worked with - socialized
and trained.  A bloodhound should not be left in a backyard all the time without
interaction.  Bloodhounds of this manner usually will entertain themselves by
destroying the back yard and finding ways to escape.  They are also known to
be very stubborn with a “what’s in it for me?” attitude.  Their nose is also a
very important factor.  Bloodhounds should be entertained with fun games or
training involving their nose.  They "see with their nose" and if not on a lead or
well trained, they will take off on a trail from something that interests them.  
However, a well-trained and loved bloodhound will make the very best pet and
most will not ever own another breed.  They have personalities like no other
breed and are sure to provide much love and entertainment.
