This contract will apply for pet only puppies that will be spayed or neutered. A copy of this contract will be provided for you at time of sale.
This puppy is the product of two purebred AKC and/or ASCA registered Australian Shepherd parents without any visible health problems, known hereditary conditions, or show faults. This puppy is guaranteed to be in good health and free of communicable disease at time of sale. This puppy was examined by a vet a few days before I received it and was given a clean bill of health. I have been given a copy of the health certificate and a shot record indicating when the next shots are due.
Refunds are only given in the event a communicable disease is confirmed by a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) within 72 hours after I take possession of puppy. This vet exam will be at my own expense. If at that time my puppy is not in good health or has a communicable disease, I agree to produce a written report from the examining vet within 72 hours which must include vet's contact information, statement including health issue, and state that the issue is completely attributed to breeder/seller for a refund to apply. In addition, I agree to return the puppy to the breeder at my own expense.
I will NOT receive a refund in the event I simply change my mind regarding this purchase, find a cheaper lesser quality puppy elsewhere, suddenly develop allergies, or my landlord disagrees with my purchase. Adding a new puppy to my household can be a 15-year commitment. Therefore, I have given my decision a considerable amount of thought before making the commitment to purchase. Life changing events can happen, and should I be unable to keep my puppy at any time during his/her life I will contact the breeder/seller for arrangements to return the puppy or gain assistance in re-homing him/her, and will never forfeit ownership to a pound, rescue, or shelter.
A third party sale makes this contract null and void as does evidence of abuse, neglect or accident, including lack of adequate quality food, water, and shelter. The breeder/seller will not be responsible for injury or accident to puppy or cost of vet expenses due to such once he/she leaves the breeder's care. In addition, no guarantee will be provided for eye color, ear set, size, working ability, or reproduction ability.
This puppy WILL require medical attention at some point during his/her lifetime and I am prepared to pay all vet expenses from this point forward. I am making this purchase because I believe this puppy is in good health at time of sale. I am aware this puppy has recently been de-wormed, and that worms may be present in the stools as wormer is designed to rid the intestinal tract of parasites. I am also aware that healthy vaccinated puppies are still susceptible to contagious disease and parasites although every effort has been made to prevent this unfortunate occurrence.
This contract does not cover any internal or external parasite or protozoa as these are common treatable conditions in puppies and dogs and I am aware my puppy could easily contract such an issue on the trip home.
By signing below, I agree to have this puppy spayed or neutered at approximately 12 months of age. We don’t recommend spaying or neutering before 9-12 months. Studies show the dogs NEED their hormones for proper growth and many other reasons. Please do your research.
I understand that I am responsible for continuing this puppy's vaccination and de-worming schedule provided by the breeder at time of sale. I agree to continue to provide flea and tick control, adequate quality nutrition, fresh cool drinking water, a warm/dry place to sleep, a fenced or supervised area for exercise and bathroom needs, and lots of love.
By signing this contract, I confirm that I have read, fully understand, and agree to this contract in its entirety. Once signed, this document becomes a legally binding agreement.
