Our survey is working again! If you do not receive online confirmation that the survey has been sent, please email our coordinator.


We are asking everyone that has a Shiloh Shepherd to fill out this survey with
as much information as possible.  Our goal is to enter every Shiloh Shepherd into the database.

We need information on every dog out there, not just the ones with diseases, but the healthy ones too!  
The more information that we collect, the better the overall picture of our breed will be...


We're also looking for information on previous dogs you may have had.  If you've had
Shilohs that have passed on to the Rainbow Bridge, please send us the information about
them too, but include a note in question #22 (the comments section) telling us that the dog
is deceased, what the cause of death was and the dogs age at the time it passed away.


Our goal is to eradicate genetic diseases from our breed and with your help we can do it!
