Sales Contract | Health Guarantee
Puppy Description: ________________________________
Date of Birth: _______________________________
Bernedoodle Puppies are sold with Limited Registration (no breeding rights) unless discussed and agreed upon in advance. Puppy must be spayed/neutered by the end of the 11th month of age and proof of this must be sent to the breeder by one year of age. If the breeder does not receive proof of spay/neuter by 12 months of age, then this entire health warranty will be void and it will be assumed the dog is being used for breeding. The buyer shall pay the breeder the sum of $5,000 for breeding rights. This guarantee does NOT cover any costs associated with spaying or neutering, nor does it cover injury or death from any routine surgical procedure.
The puppy is guaranteed to be in good health and current on vaccinations/dewormed for age. The puppy will be micro chipped and treated with Revolution before leaving my home. If the Buyer’s Veterinarian should find this puppy to have a life-threatening illness or disease (excluding parasites, coccidia or an easily treated illness, many of which can be brought on by the stress of being re-homed ), or is found to have a life-altering genetic defect within 3 business days of the puppy leaving my home, the buyer will have 7 days to return the puppy to the breeder, along with Vet record of illness, that was given with the puppy. Either a full refund of the price of the puppy will be given or the puppy will be replaced with another puppy of equal value. The breeder will always have the option of having the diagnosis confirmed by a Veterinarian of his choice before a refund is issued. Please take caution as to where you take your new puppy until the entire series of puppy shots has been given (usually between 16-17 weeks of age). Avoid pet stores, dog parks, rest areas, etc. I realize people want to show off their new puppy but it is really best for your puppy’s health to avoid these places until he/she is completely immunized!
This puppy is guaranteed to the original purchaser against debilitating or life-threatening hereditary/congenital diseases including hip dysplasia (mild-severe), vWD (affected) , hereditary, debilitating cardiac issues and/or hereditary disabling eye diseases until he/she reaches 2 yrs. of age. Please note that this guarantee does not cover any of the following conditions or minor flaws: coccidiosis, giardia, hypoglycemia, kennel cough, pneumonia, ear mites, ear infections, skin mites, mange (sarcoptic demodectic or cheyletiella), cherry eye or any other non life-threatening eye, skin, or tissue issues, allergies, over or under bites, herniations, a non life-threatening open fontanel, non life-threatening bone or joint disorders such as but not limited to luxating patellas and heart murmurs that are not life threatening. Seller cannot guarantee size, color, temperament or fertility (including presence of testicles) of any puppy. In addition, Seller cannot guarantee that declaws will not re-grow and will not be responsible for any vet charges the Buyer may incur in removing dewclaws. This guarantee does not cover entropian.
If this puppy/dog is found to have a debilitating, life-threatening, hereditary/congenital disease, the breeder will replace the puppy with a new one of equal value, when available. Please know that I will NEVER ask you to return your beloved pet in order for this warranty to be fulfilled. I do, however, require that the dog be spayed/neutered prior to receiving a replacement puppy. Documentation must be provided by a licensed Veterinarian (by OFA or PennHip for hip/elbow issues, a Certified Veterinary Cardiologist for Cardiac issues or a certified canine Ophthalmologist for eye issues). It is understood that the breeder is not responsible for Vet bills or shipping/transportation costs. The breeder may have the said puppy/dog examined by a licensed Veterinarian of her choice to verify the diagnosis.
This guarantee is void if the dog is found to be overweight and/or not fed a quality diet. The buyer agrees that the puppy/dog will be housed indoors, fed a quality diet, and kept current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative as recommended by his/her licensed Veterinarian. The buyer agrees that the puppy/dog will never be taken to a dog shelter, pound or any like facility or used for research. The breeder understands that, at times, circumstances may arise where an owner cannot keep his/her dog. In the event the buyer chooses to return the dog to the breeder, the breeder will be responsible to re-home the dog and there shall be no reimbursement given for the dog. This health warranty is void if the puppy/dog is transferred to a new owner before the age of 2 years.
