The Purchase Price of the Puppy is $3,000.
A $500 deposit will be paid immediately with this Agreement to guarantee that Seller will hold the puppy for delivery to the Buyer on the below specified Delivery Date.
The Balance Due, after crediting the Deposit ($500), will be paid in Cash or Credit Card prior to shipping or at the time of pick-up. This Purchase Price does NOT include any Delivery Charge (if any) which is calculated separately.
DEPOSIT (Surety of Action Deposit) in the amount of $500 is required to hold this Puppy for the Buyer until date of Delivery.
There are no refunds on Deposits, unless otherwise agreed here in writing. Failure of the Buyer to complete this purchase would subject Seller to lost opportunities to sell the puppy to some other Buyer and retention of the Deposit is meant to compensate Seller for his possible loss. This deposit signifies the intent on the part of the Buyer to follow through with the Purchase of this puppy. Deposit may be moved to a future litter at the request of the Buyer.
The Seller reserves the right to void this transaction and refund the Deposit if we learn of any reason why Buyer might not be suitable for the puppy (i.e. Buyer is found to be an animal abuser, violent person, representative of a Pet Store, representative of a pharmaceutical research laboratory etc.).
If the transaction is voided or if through some tragic accident the puppy were to die or otherwise be seriously injured before it goes to its new home, then of course the Deposit will be returned to the Buyer; unless the Buyer wishes to apply the Deposit to another puppy, if one is available, or to a puppy from the next available litter.
DELIVERY OF PUPPY
We can ship puppies to anywhere inside the U.S. for $400. This includes the airplane ticket, the crate, bed, health certificate, travel documents, etc. that accompanies your puppy. You may also choose to pick your puppy up at our Westerville, Ohio address.
This puppy will be available for the Buyer to pick up personally in Westerville, once the puppy has reached the age of 8 weeks. This date is based on our estimation of when the puppy will be naturally weaned and ready to leave its Mom.
If the Buyer is not able to pick up the puppy by the time the puppy is 8 weeks old, we will be glad to continue caring for the puppy for a reasonable time (limited to 30 days unless otherwise arranged), but we will add a charge of $30 per day for boarding for every day after the scheduled pickup date.
Your puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at time of sale and to have all age appropriate shots and de-worming treatments. Your puppy will also come spayed or neutered prior to coming home. If at the time of spay or neuter, it is discovered that your puppy has an umbilical hernia (which happens in about 10% of all births due to the mother being over aggressive in removing the amniotic sac), it will be repaired while the puppy is already under general anesthesia. The buyer has 10 days from date of delivery to have puppy examined by his own vet at his own expense to verify this.
Your puppy is guaranteed free from genetic defects up to the age of 24 months. The stated defect must be shown to be genetic in origin. The breeder has the right to have a dog reexamined by a vet of their own choice at their expense. In case of hip dysplasia, radiographic evidence and a statement from OVC or OFA must be produced to sellers. In case of a dispute, OFA will judge X-rays. When certificate stating the defect to be significant and genetic in origin, breeder will replace the dog. Purchaser will contact breeder as soon as possible should any major health problems arise.
The Buyer agrees to continue providing regular socialization for the puppy after the pup is fully vaccinated, and agrees to provide a safe environment.
The buyer agrees to keep the puppy healthy, maintain and stay current with all puppy vaccinations, provide periodic vet checks, and to keep the pup at a healthy weight by feeding TLC dog food (information about ordering TLC will be given prior to puppy coming home).
Seller will provide Buyer with a puppy that is clean; in good general health and that has no known physical defects. It is generally recognized that intestinal parasites (worms, etc.) are common in puppies, and are a part of a puppy’s early development but we will make every effort to prevent parasites. Often, however, the stress of change and travel can cause intestinal parasites to emerge. Buyer agrees to continue parasite testing and treatment (if necessary) with their veterinarian.
Failure to have the puppy examined by a vet within 10 days of the date the puppy is delivered to Buyer or if Buyer fails to provide required immunizations, treatment or de-wormings, will mean that this health guarantee will be void.
Buyer agrees to keep their puppy at home and away from other dogs, public places, parks and will use care in allowing others from outside their home to pet or touch the puppy until all immunizations are completed. This is to protect the puppy from exposure to parvovirus and other infectious illnesses.
RIGHT OF RECOVERY OR PLACEMENT
Should the Buyer find themselves unexpectedly in a circumstance where death or other loss prevents them from being able to properly care for the puppy, Buyer agrees to contact Seller and Seller will be given first rights to the puppy. If the dog is to be sold, Seller will be given right of first refusal. Buyer agrees that the puppy will NOT under any circumstances be placed in a dog pound or rescue center.
This written Agreement contains all of the terms of this Puppy Deposit and Sales Agreement. No refunds will be given, all deposits are non-refundable and all sales are final.
To ensure that the Buyer can immediately reserve the puppy of their choice, Buyer and Seller agree that this Agreement is in full force by virtue of Email exchange of completed copy of this agreement between Seller and Buyer. All disputes are subject to resolution in the Seller’s domicile: Delaware County, Ohio.
