Our Puppy Contract

Below is our basic pet contract.  If the puppy is older or if there is a small finding at the vet appointment (like a narrow bite or undescended testicle of a pup)  the contract we send you after puppy picks will be slightly different.  For those interested in breeding their pup later, we like to know that ahead of time so we can help discuss possible coloring and health concerns and the breeders program that the pup will be going to.

It is necessary to protect your puppy from contagious diseases until an entire series of vaccines

has been given. Your puppy shouldn’t be exposed to other puppies or taken to public places until fully protected by the entire series. At 8 weeks of age, your puppy has had only one vaccine, as is the proper vaccine protocol. Until receiving vet recommended vaccines, your puppy is NOT fully protected against deadly contagious diseases such as Parvovirus and distemper etc. We do not guarantee that your puppy won’t catch contagious diseases. Vet records are included at time of pickup. Please provide them to the new vet and follow their recommendations for next set of vaccines and preventative measures.

INITIAL ____________________                          


Sometimes puppies are born with parasites and worms, and stress can also bring them out again;

although our puppies receive Pyrantel deworming medicine several times before adoption, and also have a fecal test at their appointment with the vet and treatment if needed, they may still

have a few parasites that resisted treatment. Your vet should provide a routine worming or fecal test. We do not make any real or implied guarantee against normal puppy parasites, such as coccidiosis, giardia, or viral or bacterial infections that puppies can contract (such as ear infections or UTIs, etc.). INITIAL _____________ 





All puppies are examined by a licensed Veterinarian before they leave

our home. To the best of the Breeder and Veterinarian's knowledge, this puppy has no known diseases or illnesses. This puppy is guaranteed to be free of untreatable health conditions. For this guarantee to be valid, the buyer must take the puppy to a Licensed Veterinarian of their choice for the puppy's well check-up within 3 business days of delivery. If puppy is found to have a disease that is untreatable or found to have a hereditary disease, a letter from the Licensed Veterinarian stating the problem must be presented to the seller within 5 days of delivery. In this case, the puppy will be returned to the Breeder within 7 days and a refund of the full purchase price - not including transportation - will be given to the Buyer and therefore ending this contract entirely. Veterinary and Medical care and its associated costs are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Buyer.


The Sire and Dam of this puppy have been screened for genetic diseases by DNA Testing. The best possible care has been taken to breed healthy dogs. If your puppy should have a genetic defect that causes diagnosis of disease within 2 years, we do offer a warranty. The puppy is also warrantied until the age of two years for Genetic Defects of the Heart and Eyes. If there is a Heart Defect, the diagnosis must be confirmed by a letter to Breeder or Breeder's Veterinarian from a Board-Certified Cardiologist stating that in his/her opinion this condition is congenital. If there is an Eye Defect, the diagnosis must be confirmed by a letter to Breeder or Breeder's Veterinarian from a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist stating that in his/her opinion this condition is congenital. In the rare event of a confirmed Genetic Defect before the puppy is 2 years old, as listed above, the Buyer can return the dog to the Breeder for a replacement Puppy. Transportation, Veterinary and Medical care and its associated costs are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Buyer.


Breeder reserves the right to have the puppy/dog examined by Breeder’s Veterinarian, and/or acquire DNA testing to determine the dog or puppy is one of our lineage and health status before issuing any kind of refund/replacement.


Breeder cannot be responsible for Sarcomas, Tumors, Autoimmune Disorders, Thyroid Disease, Stomach issues, Allergies, and Seizures. Vaccine related Allergy and Seizure issues that result in itching or seizures can occur up to two months after administered vaccine. Breeder cannot be held liable for any of these conditions as they can be caused by unknown environmental triggers out of the Breeder's control.


The buyer’s agreements will continue for the life of the dog and the seller will have to right to enforce the agreements.
