consideration of the purchase
price of ________ and all the mutual promises contained herein, BREEDER
promises to and does hereby deliver and agree to transfer ownership to
BUYER of the following Newfoundland dog:
Date of Birth:
Sire Name and Registration #:
Dam Name and Registration #:
BREEDER guarantees that, to the best of her knowledge, the puppy is in
good health at the time of sale. The
BUYER agrees to take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours
of purchase for evaluation. Should
it be determined that the puppy is suffering from a serious hereditary or
communicable disease clearly attributable to the BREEDER, the puppy must
be returned to the BREEDER within 48 hours, at the BREEDER’s expense,
for a full refund or a replacement puppy.
The BREEDER reserves the right to a confirming diagnosis, by a
veterinarian of her choice, prior to the return of the puppy.
Temperament is the most important characteristic of the Newfoundland breed
and the BREEDER guarantees temperament for the life of the dog.
At the time of sale, all puppies have been evaluated as having a
sound temperament. If at any
time the BUYER believes that the dog has developed a temperament problem,
the dog must be returned to the BREEDER, or a third party authorized by
the BREEDER, at the BUYER’s expense, for evaluation.
If the BREEDER determines the dog has a temperament problem that
makes it unable to function as a safe companion animal, the BUYER agrees
that the BREEDER may euthanize the dog and a replacement puppy or refund
will be provided according to the “Conditions of Replacement” listed
below. If the BREEDER
determines that a dog returned for “temperament” problems has been
abused or neglected in any way (including a lack of, or improper
socialization) no replacement puppy will be provided.
Furthermore, the BUYER agrees to surrender the dog and sign the
necessary papers to transfer sole ownership of the dog to the BREEDER
without any right of refund or any other monetary consideration.
The BREEDER guarantees the puppy against crippling hip or elbow dysplasia
(defined as changes in the joint that are manifest by chronic lameness and
an inability to function as a pet) until two (2) years of age.
As dysplasia is caused by a combination of genetic, nutritional and
environmental factors, it is not possible to guarantee against any
dysplasia. If the dog
develops crippling dysplasia, the BUYER must notify the BREEDER in writing
and provide a statement of diagnosis from two (2) veterinarians, one of
whom may be chosen by the BREEDER. A
replacement puppy or refund will be provided according to the
“Conditions of Replacement” listed below.
The guarantee against dysplasia is null and void if the dog has not
been maintained at proper weight (defined as easily palpable ribs).
The BREEDER guarantees the puppy against terminal congenital defects until
the age of one (1) year. In
the event the dog is diagnosed with a terminal congenital defect, the
BUYER must notify the BREEDER in writing and provide a statement of
diagnosis from two (2) veterinarians (one of whom may be chosen by the
BREEDER) stating that the dog must be euthanized due to a defect of
genetic origin. A replacement
puppy or refund will be provided according to the “Conditions of
Replacement” listed below.
In addition to the veterinarians’ statements listed above, replacement
conditions are as follows:
72 hours up to 3 months after the time of sale - 75% of purchase price;
3 months up to 1 year after the time of sale - 50% of purchase price;
1 year up to 2 years after the time of sale - 30% of purchase price;
2 years up to 4 years after the time of sale - 20% of purchase price;
4 years on after the time of sale - no monetary refund.
the BUYER agrees to sign the necessary papers to transfer the sole
ownership of the dog back to the BREEDER.
This includes, but is not limited to, the American Kennel Club
registration. The BREEDER
will deduct the cost of veterinary and/or grooming care from the refund on
any dog retuned in poor condition. Poor
addition, the dog must be spayed/neutered between seven (7) and ten (10)
months of age. Altered
animals live longer, healthier lives.
Spaying a bitch before her first heat greatly reduces the risk of
her developing mammary cancer and eliminates the chance of life
threatening uterine infections (pyometra).
Altering a male eliminates the risk of his developing bacterial
prostatis or testicular cancer. The
purchase of this puppy is CONDITIONAL until this requirement is fulfilled,
and the dog may be repossessed by the BREEDER if it is not met within the
specified time. When the
BREEDER receives a copy of the spay/neuter certificate, a refund of $50
will be given to the BUYER.
I have read, understand and agree to abide by the terms of this contract consisting of three 3) pages, including this page, dated this ___ day of ______, 20___, and signed by both parties to assure the well-being of the dog and the Newfoundland breed.
