Warranty And Purchase Agreement
Health - I warrant that to the best of my ability and knowledge I have produced a healthy, problem free *family pet*. I have devoted much time, money and energy to produce the best puppy possible. I follow all current accepted health practices regarding sanitation, health screenings, deworming, and vaccinations under the advice of my veterinarian. Even with the best breeding programs, at times unavoidable defects and problems occur. Unavoidable defects such as but not limited to; can be umbilical hernia, undescended testicle, under bite or overbite. I do not warrant any issues other than health. All puppies are guaranteed against preexisting, severe, life-threatening and life shortening diseases or disabilities for 1 full year from date of birth. If the condition can be treated, it is NOT considered life threatening. If a puppy develops a life threatening or life shortening disease or disability and it is documented by a licensed veterinarian and confirmed by one of my veterinarians or veterinarian of my choice I will replace the puppy with another puppy of equal or less value. The affected puppy must be returned with all registration and veterinary documentation at buyer’s expense. I am not responsible for any veterinary bills. I do not warrant against normal puppy hood aliments such as fleas, worms, kennel cough, coccidiosis, giardia, skin and ear mites, cherry eye or allergies as these can at times be unpreventable, although your puppy has had all the preventative treatments for these. I do not warrant against Parvo or any other contagious disease because I can’t control what the puppy is exposed to once it leaves my care. The new owner is asked to take the puppy to their vet within 3 business days of arrival for a Well Puppy Check-Up and contact seller via email the results of the examination by email. This is to verify the condition of the puppy when it arrives. Failure to do so will make this contract null and void. I am not responsible for any vet bill incurred after new owner is in possession of the puppy(s). Also this guarantee shall become null & void if the puppy is given any vaccinations within 10 days of purchase. Please note that puppies are not immune until they have had their minimum set of puppy shots which is a minimum of 16 weeks/4 months. Yes I understand you want to show off your new puppy. If you choose to take your puppy out and expose them to several people and places (petsmart, petco, dog park) before they are fully vaccinated, you do so at your own risk of disease to your puppy. The buyer also agrees to no hold off on any strenuous repetitive exercise such as agility, long walks/hiking (over a mile) until dog is at least 1 year of age. Also going up and down too many stairs is hard on hips/joints of large (xlarge) breed dogs and will void this health warranty. The buyer understands that replacement option is only valid when health problems are attributed to a hereditary problem and not due to accident or contagious and/or other illness. The buyer understands that any and all guarantees expire one year from the date of birth. I do not warranty against any condition caused by carelessness, negligence, or abuse. I do not take responsibility for veterinarian bills or any other expenses after the purchase of the puppy.
Breeding Rights - Puppies are being sold as family pets (no breeding rights) unless discussed and agreed upon in advance. The puppy will not be spayed/neutered before leaving my home. The puppy/dog must be spayed/neutered by 18 months of age. If the breeder does not receive proof of spay/neuter by 19 months of age it will be assumed the dog is being used for breeding. The buyer shall pay the breeder the sum of $15,000 for breeding rights.
Replacement - If no replacement is available for the same value it is the buyers responsibility to keep in touch with the breeder for acquiring replacement that is acceptable to both parties. Also the warranty is only valid to the original puppy and the original owner. Being a responsible breeder all puppies are sold with limited registration under a spay/neuter contract. You must have the dog spayed or neutered by 18 months of age. This is to help control unwanted puppies and to ensure that the bloodlines remain pure. However, full registration (Breeding Rights)might be considered upon request.
SHIPPING CHARGES Shipping and handling charges anywhere in the lower 48 states is usually $325. Should the puppy be larger the cost might increase $25 - $50. My puppies usually travel with Delta or AA. Shipping to Alaska can be arraigned at an additional charge to be determined when the puppy is close to being ready to ship. Shipping and handling charges includes; crate, vet check, rabies vaccine ( if 12 wk of age or older), small bag of food to mix with your choice of food when the puppy reaches your home, small blanket that has the scent of other litter members and/or dam to help alleviate stress from separation. Microchiping is included. Your pet has been microchiped at my veterinary’s office during puppy check for their health . You receive paperwork to register the chip in your name. I want to keep you and your puppy united!!
RESERVATION FEE & HOLDING AGREEMENT All fees, including sale price, shipping and handling charges are payable prior to the shipment of the animal. The balance on the puppy is due in full at 6 weeks of age if shipping is needed. Reservation fee: I require a $300.00 US currency (non-refundable) reservation fee. In consideration of a payment of $________of which $300.00 is the reservation fee, seller assigns buyer the dog and guaranteeing that said dog will not be sold to any other party other than the buyer. The reservation fee shall be applied to the purchase price. The reservation fee received by seller in the amount of $300.00 for said puppies is NON-REFUNDABLE. You will be responsible for the shipping of a new puppy.
This written agreement is a binding contract entered into the State of Missouri and is the entire agreement between the buyer and seller concerning the health conditions or loss of this puppy. Any legal dispute about puppy/dog shall be taken up in Texas County in the state of Missouri per this guarantee and is subject to Missouri laws only. Out of state laws are not valid per the guarantee. All attorney fees and court costs will be the buyer’s responsibility. We must have the contract signed and returned to us within 10 days of purchase date of puppy. Failure to do so will make contract null and void. I have the first right of refusal , for any reason, at any given time, towards any adoption.
DIET - Do not immediately change your new puppy’s diet. Shock can occur causing their sugar levels to drop and or upset their stomach. If they seem to be sluggish feed them a little Nutrical. If you feel the need to change their diet, do so gradually till they are eating a different food. Make sure your puppy gets plenty of rest, food and water. Do not over handle your new puppy; make sure they get plenty of rest. Again I stress do not immediately change food, this is stressful on their digestive systems.
