              Contract (Spay/Neuter)

By signing this contract I understand & agree to the following:

 

  • This puppy is the product of two genetically health tested AKC/ASCA registered purebred Australian Shepherd parents & is guaranteed to be in good health & free of communicable disease at time of sale.
  • I agree to be a responsible pet owner & spay/neuter at an appropriate age BEFORE bad behavior develops, typically 4-6 months, as recommended by my vet. I understand that pounds, shelters, and rescues are full of unwanted, unhealthy, genetically untested, mixed breed animals due to irresponsible pet ownership and failure to spay/neuter. If left intact my dog could; 1. be shot at while visiting a neighbor’s dog to breed 2. contract a sexually transmitted disease from a neighborhood animal causing harm to his/her health as well as my family 3. WILL contribute to the overpopulation of unwanted animals simply by breeding my neighbor’s intact dog because THEY ARE ANIMALS … THEY WILL FIND A WAY.
  • I will NEVER register this dog as any other breed than the breed listed on his/her AKC AND ASCA registration paperwork. This requirement is put in place to protect and preserve the quality & pureness of the breed.
  • 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 invested a considerable amount of thought into my decision BEFORE making a 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, or gain assistance in re-homing, my puppy and will never forfeit ownership to a pound, rescue, or shelter or place a sales ad on craigslist.
  • This puppy WILL require medical attention at some point during his/her lifetime & I, the buyer, 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 & was produced by a responsible reputable breeder. This contract does not cover any internal or external parasites or protozoa as these are common treatable conditions in puppies & dogs that are raised with outdoor access and I am aware my puppy could easily contract such an issue on the trip home, during air travel, or at my own residence. This puppy has recently been de-wormed & the shedding of parasites may still be occurring & is normal after treatment. Healthy vaccinated puppies are still susceptible to contagious disease, parasites, & protozoa though every effort has been made to prevent this unfortunate occurrence.
  • If I visited the premises for pickup, I agree that I have thoroughly inspected this puppy BEFORE following through with commitment to purchase. I am completely satisfied with the conditions in which my puppy, his/her littermates, & parents are kept & cared for & agree my puppy is in good health as are parents and littermates, if present. In addition, I have witnessed his/her ability to run, jump, & play easily & unassisted and that he/she is alert and responsive to normal activities and happenings within his/her environment.
  • If I met the seller at a designated location for pickup, I agree the option was made available for me to visit the location where the breeding program is maintained but declined such invitation. I have thoroughly inspected this puppy BEFORE following through with commitment to purchase and agree that he/she is in good health. Multiple videos and pictures were made available to me by the seller on different occasions and/or dates and I am completely satisfied with the conditions in which my puppy, his/her littermates, & parents are kept & cared for. I agree the puppy I have received IS the puppy represented to me before purchase. In addition, I have witnessed his/her ability to run, jump, & play easily & unassisted and that he/she is alert and responsive to normal activities and happenings within his/her environment.
  • If my puppy was shipped via air travel, I agree the option was made available to me to visit the location where the breeding program is maintained but I declined such invitation. Multiple videos and pictures were made available to me by the seller on different occasions and/or dates and I am completely satisfied with the conditions in which my puppy, his/her littermates, & parents are kept & cared for. I agree the puppy I have received IS the puppy represented to me before purchase. In addition, I have witnessed his/her ability to run, jump, & play easily & unassisted and that he/she is alert and responsive to normal activities and happenings within his/her environment.
  • I agree that a vaccination record and schedule to follow has been provided at time of sale and that death of my puppy may occur if I fail to complete the recommended vaccination schedule.
  • Third party sale makes this contract null & void as does evidence of abuse, neglect, accident, or lack of adequate quality food, water, & shelter. Breeder/seller will not be responsible for injury or accident to puppy, or cost for repair, once he/she leaves breeder care. In addition, no guarantee will be provided for eye color, earset, size, or working ability.

No other guarantees expressed or implied. This contract is under the jurisdiction of the State of Oklahoma. In the event of any dispute, it is agreed the place of venue shall be Rogers County, Oklahoma under Oklahoma law.
