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 DATE This Puppy will be available for the Buyer to pick up personally at Leon, or Corydon as agreed upon on ________________. This date is based on our estimation of when the puppy will be naturally weaned and ready to leave its Mom. Typically, our puppies stay with their Moms at an absolute minimum of 8 weeks of age, but can go up to 10-12 weeks of age depending on the puppy’s needs. If the Buyer is not able to pick up the puppy on the agreed upon Delivery Date, 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 $2 per day for boarding for every day after the scheduled pickup date. Shipping We can ship puppies anywhere in the United States. Shipping is an additional $375.
HEALTH GUARANTEE The Seller guarantees Your Puppy to be free from infectious diseases for 4 days after the puppy leaves our premises and guarantees the Puppy to be free from genetic problems for up to one year of age. Hip and joint problems can be caused by or influenced by overfeeding, improper diet, failure to maintain proper weight, failure to provide sufficient exercise, over-exercising or improper exercising which would be out of our control. At no time is the breeder liable for any tests or vet bills incurred by you at any time. The breeder cannot ever guarantee the exact coloring, markings, sizes or breeding ability of any puppy because these can not only change until adulthood, we cannot predict how you will care for the puppy as well. We do not guarantee temperament. Our dogs have demonstrated great stable temperament. All our Puppies are temperament tested and sound when delivered. We take great pains to provide a secure, loving environment for our Puppies from birth and provide daily proper socialization. After Delivery, the responsibility is on the Buyer to provide a good environment with proper socialization. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to keep the Puppy free from harm and bad interactions with other people, dogs and animals. Any negative exposure of the puppy to a bad experience with other dogs or people can cause lasting effects. Be gentle with your Puppy and use Positive Reinforcement. Do NOT hit your puppy or do silly things like rub his nose in urine or feces “accidents”. *Also remember that the first week will be a transition. The puppy will be excited and nervous and this in combination with food and water change can cause loose stools for a couple of days but we always recommend consulting with your vet and always having a stool sample taken at the 48 hr check up. Buyer agrees to continue providing regular socialization for the Puppy after the pup is fully vaccinated. The purchaser 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 including an initial examination within the first 4 days after delivery, and to keep the pup at a healthy weight by feeding a quality dog food Seller will provide Buyer with a puppy that is clean; in good general health and that has no known physical defects. De-wormings and first immunizations will have been completed and detailed in writing if puppy is older than 8 weeks. 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. Buyer agrees that he/she will take their puppy to their veterinarian within 4 days of receiving the Puppy for examination, testing for worms, treatment for worms, obtain prescription for Heartgard and Frontline and to schedule ongoing immunizations as recommended. If the purchaser’s veterinarian finds the puppy to be in poor health, the veterinarian’s written description of the problems must be provided, dated within 4 days of the date the Buyer received their puppy. Genetic defects are covered by this guarantee for one year, including hips, eyes and heart. A written examination from a veterinarian must state that genetic defect exists and be accompanied by x-rays and other testing as appropriate. With documentation by veterinarian, that is dated within 4 days of Buyer’s receipt of the Puppy, that shows serious untreatable infectious illness or genetic defect which is sufficiently serious in the opinion of two qualified veterinarians, at least one of whom is selected by the Seller, to warrant euthanization of the dog, Buyer will be refunded the price of the Puppy or given a replacement Puppy from the Seller’s next available litter. Transportation costs (if any) will not be refunded and are not included in this guarantee. Expenses of treatment, exams and tests are the financial responsibility of the Buyer. Failure to have the puppy examined by a vet within four 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 complete. This is to protect the puppy from exposure to parvovirus and other infectious illnesses. New owners will not enroll the puppy in obedience training classes until all immunizations are completed.
