Puppy Sales Contract
STANDARD LIMITED CONTRACT
Congratulations on your new (or future) addition to the family. Your new puppy is produced by temperamentally sound parents who will be certified to be free of elbow/hip dysplasia, inherited eye and heart defects. We typically have them wormed a minimum of 4 times and inoculated with the appropriate vaccination(s) at the proper age before going home. We will advise each owner individually if there are any changes or additional treatment(s) that may be required. A medical chart is included with each puppy package that documents all prior treatments and has a guide for when to do future vaccinations.
Please note: This sales contract is not final until the day you pick up your puppy, payment is received in full, and both parties have signed this contract in the presence of each other (two contracts will be available for signing on Pick Up Day Receipt of your deposit is NOT considered a binding contract for the final sale. Breeders reserve the right to change their minds for any reason, in which case we would return your deposit should WE decide another option for the puppy would be more beneficial for that puppy. Some of the reasons we might change our mind may be the failure to complete an application for the puppy you want, failure to provide the information we've requested, information received from your references, evaluation (temperament or conformation) on your puppy indicates it may be better suited elsewhere, and/or we decide we want to keep that puppy because it shows promise for showing or breeding.
All of our puppies are sold under a "limited" pet purchase agreement. We no longer require spaying or neutering due to new science which shows there are more health risks for dogs who have been altered, especially at a young age. We have chosen you because we feel you are responsible pet owners and will keep your dog under control at all times, which means preventing possible insemination and breeding. This is NOT permission to breed your dog. This means your dog receives a "limited" registration contract from AKC; your dog will be AKC registered, but puppies will not be registered if it has puppies. There are also competitions you cannot compete in when showing your dog. If this dog is accidentally bred, there is a $10,000 accidental breeding fee. If we have a puppy with exceptional conformation, temperament, or show quality who has been professionally evaluated as such, we do consider full AKC registration with an additional fee of up to $1000 depending on individual rating. Please see our Full Show/Breeding Contract for requirements.
The following agreement is between Mary & Ron Chadwick (Breeders), hereafter referred to as "Seller", and the new owner of the Golden Retriever Puppy hereafter referred to as "Buyer.
