We will email to you your agreement for completion & return. The Agreement must be read, signed and returned to us before you recieve your new puppy.
TRUPANION PET INSURANCE: Within 24 hours of taking possession of the puppy, Buyer is provided with a certificate for a free 30-day trial of Pet Insurance with Trupanion. If Buyer fails to timely activate the 30-day free trial, all warranties and guarantees contained in this Agreement are VOID. Continued service with Trupanion beyond the 30-day trial is not required for compliance with this provision.
As responsible breeders, we have worked diligently to eliminate known defects from our bloodlines. On rare occasions, any top breeder can have a puppy that presents a medical problem. We are meticulous with regard to all details in the raising of our puppies and the health and well-being of the puppies entrusted to our care is paramount!
48 HOUR WARRANTY: Within forty-eight (48) hours of Buyer taking possession of the puppy, the puppy must be examined by a licensed veterinarian, except if a Buyer takes possession on Friday, the puppy must be seen by a licensed veterinarian by the following Monday. If the puppy is not taken to a licensed veterinarian within forty-eight (48) hours of Buyer taking possession, then the health warranty on the puppy is void. Any exam performed by a vet belonging to the Banfield network (Petsmart/Petco) will void this warranty in its entirety due to their reputation of financial abuse and manipulation of new puppy owners. Breeder holds the right to have the puppy re-examined by our veterinarian to validate any diagnosis. Any vet expenses incurred by Buyer will not be refunded.
HEALTH GUARANTEES: Unfortunately, and it is extremely rare, but after leaving our care a puppy might become medically compromised in a variety of ways. These include physical injury, hypoglycemia, neglect, extreme environmental conditions, or exposure to pathogens. Even the most preeminent breeder could potentially have a puppy that develops and/or displays symptoms of a medical nature. These are conditions well outside the realm of reasonable care or prevention and the potential of this atypical situation has facilitated the formulation of our extensive guarantee process.
PREVENTATIVE HEALTH & NUTRITION: Buyer agrees to keep the puppy in good physical condition with regularly scheduled vaccinations, dewormings, flea, tick and heartworm prevention and to provide proper shelter, exercise, fresh water, dog food, treats, pet care products and nutritional supplements as described herein. Administering an internal flea medication, using Comfortis, Trifexis Flea & Tick products will void all guarantees.
Should any settlement under any of the conditions of the health guarantee become necessary, Breeder reserves the right to resolve any problem by the following means and with the stipulations listed below:
*(For example, if a dog was purchased for $2000 and an agreed to surgery was $1000, Breeder would pay
$500. If the surgery were to be $5000, Breeder would pay the original purchase price of that dog or in other
words, a maximum of $2000.)
3. In the unlikely event that a death occur within the health guarantee period, a necropsy must be performed by a licensed veterinarian and a copy of the report forwarded to Breeder for review by Breeder's veterinarian prior to assumption of Breeder liability. If our veterinarian concurs that the puppy did indeed pass away due a genetic defect covered under the health guarantee, we will replace your puppy as soon as one is available. All expenses are at Buyer's expense including the licensed veterinarian tests, professional diagnosis and necropsy, if applicable, as well as the return shipping and shipping of the replacement puppy. If the puppy becomes ill and the owner has the puppy euthanized without Breeders prior consent, no replacement will be made. If the Buyer declines a replacement puppy, then Breeder shall be under no further obligation and it will be deemed that the Buyer has released the Breeder from any and all further claims, obligations or duty.
FIRST RIGHT OF REFUSAL: Buyer agrees that the puppy will never be sold, leased or given to any pet shop, animal shelter, rescue, research laboratory or other similar facility. In the event Buyer decides they can no longer care for the dog, wishes to sell, transfer ownership, give the puppy/dog away, the Buyer agrees to notify Breeder immediately and Breeder is to be given the "FIRST RIGHT" of refusal. If Breeder exercises this right, ownership shall be legally transferred to Breeder and once Breeder has found an appropriate home for the dog, half of what it is resold for will be returned to Buyer. All registration papers, immunization papers, microchip registration papers, etc. must be returned with the puppy and cost of shipping shall be at Buyer's expense.
Breeder may accept credit cards as a convenience to Buyer. Buyer agrees that no charge backs or disputes will be filed through a credit card company or financial institution for ANY REASON. In the event of legal action necessary to enforce the obligations on the Buyer by the Breeder the Buyer shall be responsible for all reasonable expenses of such enforcement including Breeder's necessary attorney's fees, court costs, and travel fees.
The pictures which Breeder provides to Buyer are of a professional quality, taken by a professional. Buyer does not have permission to alter these photos in any way, nor does Buyer have permission to attempt to resell any puppy acquired from Breeder using any of these pictures. Further, Buyer gives permission to Breeder to share any and all photos sent to Breeder for the purposes of advertisement so long as Buyer’s name is attributed as current owner.
ABUSE/NEGLECT: In the event that the dog is mistreated, neglected, abused in any way, kept outside in extreme heat or extreme cold conditions, kept on wire flooring, Breeder has the right to rescue the dog immediately, with no notice or compensation to Buyer. Buyer shall voluntarily surrender the dog, and any kennel club registration, microchip records, and health records.
**We will not guarantee any breeding dog or a dog purchased for breeding. We also do not give breeding rights to any generation pass F1B***
