Contract/Guarantee

Seller/breeder believes the puppy to be healthy and sound at the time of sale.  All health records are transferred to the buyer upon purchase of said puppy. There is a 48 hour health guarantee from the time of pick up. Buyer agrees to have their puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian within 48 hours of obtaining said puppy. Failure to have this check-up will void this portion of the contract that gives the health guarantee.  If the puppy is found to have an untreatable disease during the initial (48 hour) vet check, we will refund your money, in full, upon return of said puppy.  A written report from a licensed veterinarian will also 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, the health guarantee will be void and the buyer will assume all costs/care for the lifetime of the puppy and no refund will be given.

There is also 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 may elect to give a partial refund or replace the puppy with a similar puppy from the next available litter (same color, sex, etc.).  

Once said dog leaves breeder’s premises, ALL veterinary expenses incurred are the buyer’s responsibility.  

Said puppy is eating Purina Pro Plan Focus Chicken/Rice puppy food.  Said puppy is to remain on Purina Pro Plan brand of food, transitioning to one of Purina Pro Plan adult foods at the right age. It is required that your puppy/dog is to remain on Purina Pro Plan brand or another WSAVA recommended foods, for life.  With the discovery of certain (and many) dog foods linking heart disease(DCM) in dogs, changing/feeding a brand that is not recommended by WSAVA will void the one-year health guarantee of this contract. 

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

The buyer(s) acknowledges that the said dog/puppy is being purchased for the purpose of companion/pet 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.  Buyer(s) must provide the seller with a spay/neuter verification by your veterinarian, upon doing so, the seller will provide the buyer with an ASDR registration application. This puppy is being sold as a PET ONLY and is not to EVER be used for breeding. Buyer agrees to provide said puppy with a lifetime of care & commitment. 

Buyer also agrees to create/maintain an Instagram account for their Legends puppy AND to follow the breeders IG @legendsminiaussies account OR buyer agrees to send breeder an annual update/photos on the status of the puppy (more frequent updates are very appreciated).  Please be aware, that I as the breeder love/care about these puppies we place into your home/care.  I always want to know how my puppies are doing.  If I reach out to you, you are expected to respond.   If you are not in agreement to creating AND maintaining an IG account for your Legends puppy, I am NOT the breeder for you.  There are plenty of less than reputable breeders out there who don’t care about the long term well being of their puppy and you can purchase a puppy from somebody else if you can’t agree to my terms.  This is non negotiable 

At any time you are unable to provide a safe, responsible home or decide, for whatever reason, that keeping your Legends puppy, such puppy/dog MUST be returned to the breeder. The breeder will NOT be obligated to pay any costs/refunds to buyer(s) for the return of said dog. If the buyer rehomes/transfers ownership of said puppy/dog w/o breeders knowledge/agreement, the breeder can at any time, 1) take legal action against buyer for breaking this contract and/or 2) take back possession of said puppy/dog from the person to whom said puppy/dog was illegally rehomed to.  You may NOT rehome this puppy w/o my knowledge and w/o speaking directly to any potential new placements.

Buyer agrees that in breaking any section of this contract, he/she will be held liable for damages in the amount of $5000.00 per part or provision of the contract that is broken. Additionally, the buyer will be held liable for any and all court costs that may be incurred by the breeder, Joni Hunsucker.  This is a legal, binding contract between seller/breeder and buyer.
