Puppy Contract & Health Guarantee
PUPPY CONTRACT & HEALTH GUARANTEE
Deposit: We require a non-refundable deposit of two hundred and fifty dollars ($250.00). The balance will be due before puppy can leave. This deposit is your guarantee that we will not place the puppy of your choice with someone else. This deposit is also our guarantee that you will be purchasing the puppy specified; therefore, the deposit is non-refundable. You will be notified when your puppy is ready to come to his/her new home. This is at 8 weeks of age. If your puppy remains at our home longer than 10 days after notification, there will be a $25.00 boarding charge added to the cost of your puppy. Arrangements to pick up or receive your puppy MUST be made before or at the time of notification. We realize that circumstances may change, so if you can no longer take the puppy you placed a deposit on, the deposit can be transferred to a future litter if requested before 3 weeks of age. If you do not want to transfer the deposit, please understand it will NOT be refunded. Please note: your deposit is no longer transferrable, and you forfeit your deposit if you change your mind after the puppy turns 4 weeks old. A deposit placed on a puppy older than 3 weeks is NOT transferrable.
Payment Information: Personal Checks are accepted (with a waiting period) or Cash which is always preferred. Puppies will remain at our kennel until completely paid for. Shipping is available (strict regulations) for an additional $350-400 charge (International is additional). This includes a Health Certificate, airfare and travel crate that you keep. We require the puppy be paid for before 6 weeks of age if the puppy is to be shipped.
Conditions of Sale: All puppies are sold with limited AKC and EJRTCA registration papers and health record, unless agreed breeding rights/full registration between both buyer and seller. Puppies will be wormed at 3 weeks and 6 weeks of age. The said puppy will receive DHPP shot 5 weeks and a straight Parvo shot at 8 weeks of age. Buyer agrees to have said puppy examined by a licensed vet within 72 hours of time of pickup or delivery or guarantee is not applicable. If said puppy is other than healthy, you should contact the breeder as soon as possible and the puppy could possibly be returned to the breeder immediately, and the purchase price will be refunded or the puppy can be replaced, whichever the buyer prefers. (Breeder has the right to ask for a 2nd opinion by a licensed Vet before refund/replacement). Minor problems such as diarrhea, coccidiosis, wormy stool, intestinal parasites etc. are common problems among puppies and will not be covered by this warranty, although every effort is made to sell puppies free of the problems. The said puppy is guaranteed for one year of age against genetic/congenital defects that could affect the puppy's quality of life. Deadline for a refund is one week from puppy’s first birthday and only after examination from buyer's Vet, and a written statement is forwarded to Breeder's Vet, Lee County Veterinary Care, 319-837- 6511, from Buyer's Vet for the replacement of another puppy of equal value. Breeder is not responsible for shipping charges, or vet bills once the puppy leaves our care. Breeder does not assume any liability for any injury of said puppy after delivery. Buyer is responsible to maintain the puppy's health condition, vaccinations, and de-worming, and other procedures to insure good health, including protecting your puppy from exposure to Parvo. The Breeder has provided everything possible to produce a healthy sound puppy by raising the puppy the best possible way in regard to diet, exercise, socialization, and health care. We go out of our way to protect our dogs/puppies and property from the Parvo Virus. The Breeder cannot guarantee a puppy's ears, coat type or height and weight at maturity.
Commitment: If for any reason, at any time, you are no longer able to keep this puppy and you do not have a loving home to give him/her to, by signing this contract you agree to return him/her to me along with the registration papers and a current health record and vaccination record so that I can find a loving home to give him/her to.
Purchaser's Statement: The Buyer guarantees that they are not acting as an agent in the purchase of this puppy, and that it will remain in his/her custody. The Buyer swears that they are not associated with a pet store, or animal broker, or research facility. This contract becomes effective upon the signature of both parties. An executed copy shall be provided to all parties.
Breeder’s Statement: The breeder reserves the right to retain first pick puppy (male or female) of all litters for protection and continuation of their breeding program.
I, the undersigned understand and accept the terms and conditions presented and by signing makes this a binding contract.
