Sire: _____________     AKC #: ___________     DOB: ________________

 

Dam: _____________     AKC #: ___________     DOB: ________________

 

 

These terms are entered into and agreed upon by all parties as of this date, _______.  Therefore, it is agreed:

 

*  This puppy is sold with an AKC Limited Registration, it is understood that the puppy is sold as a companion only and will not be used for breeding purposes. Spaying or neutering is optional and is NOT required.  If the Buyer does opt to Spay or Neuter, the Buyer agrees NOT to have the puppy spayed or neutered prior to its 1 year birthday.  Early Spay or Neuter (before 1 year of age) VOIDS any and all health guarantees. The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: ______ Date: ________

* This puppy has been delivered to the Buyer with age appropriate inoculations and dewormings. I strongly recommend that your veterinarian also examine this puppy within 72 hours of purchase.   This should be a WELLNESS checkup only and NO vaccinations should be given at this time.  Failure to follow this protocol VOIDS any and all health guarantees and could potentially jeopardize the health of your puppy. The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: ________ Date: ___________

* This puppy is guaranteed to be free of life threatening congenital defects for one (1) year from date of birth. If a congenital defect is suspected, the Buyer shall notify the Seller within three (3) days of diagnosis and provide the Seller with a veterinarian’s written report. The Seller reserves the right to have the dog checked by a veterinarian of our choice and if the prognosis is confirmed, we will replace the dog as availability allows. All warranties are for replacement and/or credit only and not for refund of purchase price in whole or in part or for reimbursement of medical/veterinary expenses in whole or in part. The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

*  The Buyer acknowledges that the Cocker Spaniel, like many other breeds, does have some health concerns inherent to the breed. These include, but are not limited to: parasites, cherry eyes, hernias, allergies, reproductive organs (except if puppy is sold on a full registration, breeder will ensure upon veterinary examination that both testicles are descended prior to sale), patellar luxation, diabetes, Grade 1 heart murmurs and autoimmune disease. These health concerns as well as any disease/condition that is brought on by diet or other environmental factors or due to negligence or injury on behalf of the new owner are excluded from this guarantee. The Buyer assumes all responsibility and future subsequent treatment for any and all health problems discovered after the initial veterinary exam. At no time will financial restitution be made to the Buyer for health problems incurred. The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

*  The Buyer agrees to harbor this puppy as a “family pet and companion” in the home. The puppy will not be tied out or allowed to roam at large off of the Buyer‘s property. It is highly recommended that the owner have a completely fenced yard. I do not recommend the use of electronic fences since they are not fool-proof and they do not prevent other animals from entering your yard.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

* The Buyer agrees that this puppy will not be subjected to tobacco smoke (pipes, cigars or cigarettes) in its home.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

* The Buyer agrees that this puppy will NEVER be given any oral Flea and Tick preventative (i.e.; BRAVECTO, NEXGARD, TRIFEXIS, COMFORTIS, SIMPARICA). This is due to the history of these products causing life threatening side effects.  In my opinion the safety studies on these products are inadequate.  See the Facebook Group "Does BRAVECTO Kill Dogs?" for moree information.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

*  The Buyer agrees to vaccinate in accordance with the University of Wisconsin CAVIDS Nomograph as prepared Dr. Laurie Larson. The Buyer agrees not to over vaccinate this puppy and to contact the Seller if at any time they have questions regarding immunizations that this puppy (or adult dog) should receive.  At no time should this puppy (or adult dog) receive the vaccine for Leptospirosis.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

* The Buyer agrees that for the duration of this puppy’s life it is to be fed high quality dog food rated 4 Star or above as rated by www.DogFoodAnalysis.com and will be provided clean, fresh water at all times on a daily basis. The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________

 

* The Buyer agrees that if at any time in the life of this puppy the Buyer is unable to keep this puppy for whatever reason, it shall be returned to the Breeder. It is also agreed that this puppy is not to be placed in a new home, given away to a family member or friend, released to a rescue organization or placed in an animal shelter without prior written approval from the Breeder.  Failure to notify the Breeder that a transfer of ownership has occurred with this puppy will subject the Buyer to a penalty of $5,000.00.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: ___________ Date: ___________

* The Buyer agrees that the official registered name of this puppy on the American Kennel Club registration will have the prefix of my kennel name "MAX".  Any deviations from the use of my kennel name must be approved in writing by the Breeder.  The Buyer understands and accepts this as a condition of the sale of said puppy by initialing here: _____________Date: ___________
