AKC #:
UKC #:
Date purchased puppy was picked up:
The ownership of the above-described puppy will be transferred to the Buyer (s) on the date the contract is signed. The puppy is
sold with AKC Full Registration for solely performance purpose and not breeding. The puppy is purebred and the Buyer
receives AKC registration papers from the Breeder on the day the puppy was picked up. The Buyer has one year from date of
issue of AKC registration application to register their puppy in her name. Note: AKC charges a penalty for late registration. The
Buyer gets 4 generations pedigree. Each puppy comes with the Seller’s notes of recommendations for the further training and
temperament test evaluation results.
The puppy is guaranteed to be healthy upon delivery, or pick up. It has been de-wormed, vaccinated, examined by a
licensed veterinarian, and when shipped by air, comes with a veterinarian health certificate.
The Buyer has THREE business days to have dog examined by his/ her Licensed Veterinarian and to personally inspect
the dog. Any claims must be made within this time period. If any of health problems discovered within this time
period, the Seller will consult with Buyers Licensed Veterinarian and offer the Buyer two choices: 1. Return the puppy
to the Seller for a full refund (minus shipping costs, if any), 2. Keep the puppy by the Buyer and treat it by the Buyer’s
Veterinarian. In this case the Seller will offer a one-time payment to cover an appropriate treatment to restore the
puppy’s health.
The Buyer may return puppy to the Seller for a full refund (minus shipping cost) for any reason within the first
THREE days of purchase (72 hours), providing Buyer agrees to prepay all transportation costs to the Seller’s home.
After three days buyer accepts full responsibility for physical wellbeing of purchased pup/dog.
$ 300.00 deposit is paid to reserve a puppy. Be advised that this deposit is Non-Refundable and represents a serious
commitment on the part of the Buyer in purchasing the puppy, as this puppy will no longer be available for other
prospective buyers. The balance of $____ (in cash, certified check, or money order) to be paid on, or before the
puppy/dog leaves the Seller's premises.
Note: the Buyer has to agree to perform OFA x-rays on hips and elbows to qualify for this guarantee. For puppies that
are sold on non-breeding contract we recommend to do OFA preliminary x-rays during the spay/neutered procedure
because a dog will be under sedation and this would be the most cost effective time to perform OFA x-rays. The Seller
will refund 50% of the cost for x-rays procedure, except for the cost of anesthesia.
Note: the puppy that is sold on Non-Breeding Contract, even with a full AKC Registration cannot be used for breeding.
This puppy should be spayed or neutered between 12 and 24 months old to qualify for guarantees on this contract. All
copies of OFA hips and elbows x-rays results must be submitted to the Seller, and the Buyer must send the Seller a
spaying/neutering certificate to qualify for these guarantees. Due to the variety and quality of available dog foods, we
require that ALL of our puppies be kept on:
NuVet Labs nutritional supplement, "NuVet Plus Canine" until 2 years of age, or an equal quality supplement. This
supplement is very important for a proper development of a young dog and its immune system. This supplement can
be ordered from NuVet Labs at 1-800-474-7044, or (code#19796).
A Good Glucosamine Supplement which feeds the cartilage of the joint. We recommend NutriVet Hip/Joint, or
NuJoint wafers.
Failure to keep your pet on NuVet, or equal quality supplement, will render all guarantees null and void. NOTE:
please keep the supplement receipts for a proof.
All our pups are guaranteed against crippling genetic diseases detected within 5 years of age. The Breeder must be notified
immediately and provided with a licensed veterinarian’s report. Any claims must be made within this time period and will
be verified by the Breeder’s own veterinarian. The Breeder needs to have a digital copy of the x-rays. PLEASE
If the purchased dog receives OFA rating less than Fair for hips and Normal for elbows, the option of getting another
puppy free of charge will be offered. The Buyer will be required to pay all related shipping costs, if any, to get a
replacement puppy and to return the first puppy back to the Seller/Breeder, if the Buyer does not want it. Papers must be
sent to the Breeder with correct transfer signatures. The Buyer may keep the first puppy if he/she chooses to. A copy of a
Spay/Neuter certificate is required before the Seller provides a replacement puppy. NO CASH REFUNDS GIVEN.
If the puppy’ OFA a report comes back with the result of subluxation, the Buyer must repeat the x-rays at a later time at
his/her own expense (at least 6 months after date of original x-ray) before determining that the puppy will not pass
OFA/OVC. No refunds will be given for a report of Panosteoitis (growing pains), as proper feeding can control this and
the puppy should outgrow it.
If the puppy dies and a cause of death is unknown, an autopsy must be performed. The Buyer assumes responsibility for all
costs, but the Seller will offer an assistance and help. If an autopsy result will reveal that the pup died from any genetic
health condition, the Seller will provide a replacement puppy free of charge when one becomes available.
