The Breeder and Guardian agree as follows:
Ownership. Ownership and all right, title, and interest of the dog shall remain with Breeder until Breeder (at its sole discretion) transfers ownership of the dog to Guardian. Any puppies born to a female dog shall be the sole and separate property of Breeder and Guardian shall have no ownership interest or right to possess any such puppies. Any semen from a male dog shall be the sole and separate property of Breeder and Guardian shall have no ownership interest or right to possess or use any of such semen.
Possession. Upon execution of this Agreement, Breeder shall transfer possession of the dog to Guardian. Guardian shall retain possession of the dog and shall provide physical care to and supervision of the dog subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Breeder’s Obligations and Rights. During the time the dog remains in the possession of the Guardian, and during the term of this Agreement, Breeder shall:
Dietary Guidelines. Provide Guardian with dietary guidelines and instructions regarding preventative health care for the dog.
Designated Veterinarian. With input from Guardian, designate the veterinarian who will provide veterinary care for the dog (the “Designated Veterinarian”) and, solely for the purpose of facilitating such care, add Guardian’s name as Guardian Co-owner on the veterinarian records.
Female Dog. If the dog is a female, provide (i) information to Guardian relating to her proestrus so that Guardian can uphold its obligation to recognize when the dog reaches proestrus and immediately notify Breeder and (ii) approximate dates when the dog is anticipated to reach proestrus.
Breeding/Semen Collection. When it is time for breeding or semen collection, have the right to take possession of the dog from Guardian until the process is completed at which time the dog will be returned to Guardian’s possession.
