Seller/breeder believes the puppy to be healthy and sound at the time of sale. All health records are transferred to buyer upon transfer of puppy. There is a 48 hour health guarantee from the time of pick up and the buyer agrees to have their puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian within 48 hours of obtaining said puppy. Failure to have this vet-check-up will void this contract. (to avoid delays, it is HIGHLY recommended that you schedule your puppy check up appointment PRIOR to picking up your puppy).

If the puppy is found to have an untreatable disease during the initial (48 hour) vet check, we will refund your money upon return of said puppy. A written report from a licensed veterinarian will be required upon return of said puppy. If the puppy is found in poor health as evidenced by a licensed veterinarian and buyer chooses NOT to return said puppy, this contract will be void and the buyer will assume all costs/care for the lifetime of the puppy. At no time, will any money be refunded to purchaser once the 48 hour health guarantee passes.

Once said dog leaves breeder’s premises, ALL veterinary expenses incurred are the buyer’s responsibility, EVEN if the said puppy/dog is returned.

There is a guarantee up to 12 months of age on said puppy for life threatening congenital defects. Purchaser must provide a statement from a licensed veterinarian stating any such defects. This does not include hip/elbow or patella deformities and/or abnormalities caused by injury, neglect or other environmental conditions. If there turns out to be a life-threatening defect, the seller will replace the puppy with a similar puppy when such puppy becomes available (same color, sex, etc.).

Said puppy is eating Purina Pro Plan Savor Chicken Puppy food.  Said puppy is to remain on Purina Pro Plan Puppy for the first year. After that you may switch your puppy to the Adult Purina Pro Plan (they offer a varity of flavors).  With the discovery of certain (and many) dog foods linking heart disease (DCM) in dogs, changing/feeding a brand that is not recommended will null/void this contract.

Although we (seller) do our best to estimate the height the puppy will be at maturity, we can not guarantee it.

The buyer(s) acknowledges that the said dog/puppy is being purchased for the purpose of companion dog only. Buyer agrees to have said dog spayed/neutered at the appropriate age. Breeder recommends to spay/neuter no earlier than 12 months of age. We have found that the hormones produced during the first 12-18 months are necessary for the proper growth/joint health of your puppy. To obtain your puppies registration, the buyer(s) must provide the seller with a spay/neuter certificate by your veterinarian, upon doing so, seller will provide a registration application (American Stock Dog Registry/ASDR) to buyer. This puppy is being sold as a PET ONLY and is not to EVER be used for breeding.

Please understand this: This is a puppy/dog we created and we want ONLY the best for, for the entirety of its lifetime. Buyer agrees to provide said puppy with a lifetime of adequate care & commitment.  If at any time you are unable to keep said puppy/dog, you the buyer, MUST contact us immediately. We have the first rights to obatin puppy back.  By signing this contract, you agree that in the event you are unable to care/keep the above said dog, the buyer(s) will IMMEDIATELY notify the seller/breeder FIRST/BEFORE any other parties are involved.  It is at the seller’s discretion as to whether or not to allow you, the buyer(s), to place the dog into another home. The breeder will NOT be obligated to pay any costs/refunds to buyer(s) for the return of said dog. If the buyer rehomes said puppy/dog w/o breeders knowledge, the breeder can at any time, take back possession of said puppy/dog from the person to whom it was rehomed to, at anytime.  If this portion of the contract is broken, the seller can/will take legal action.

The best way for me, as a breeder, to improve my program, is to see what I am producing.  Buyer agrees to do their best to create and keep current, an Instagram account for their Legends puppy. If you do not do social media, you will be required to send breeder at least an annual update/photos on the status of the puppy (more frequent updates are appreciated).
