Deposits and any other money paid in on a puppy are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE. If the puppy were to pass away while under our care, puppy will be replaced with another puppy of EQUAL VALUE. During the waiting period, if the puppy becomes sick, or I feel like this puppy isn’t suitable to go to a new home, Buyer will have to choose another puppy or wait for upcoming litters. During the waiting period of waiting after you have placed a deposit on a puppy, if I feel like you are not suitable for one of my puppies, I do have the rights to refuse to sell you a puppy. Your deposit will be sent back to you within 90 days.
_____ I do not guarantee size, color, disposition, show quality or breeding ability. Our guarantee does not include poisoning, accidents, negligence or behavioral problems, as training philosophies and environments vary amongst individuals.
______ Breeder (Brenda Burch Freeman of Charlotte’s Web of Chihuahuas) confirms that the puppy is healthy at the time of pick up or delivery. Breeder has provided the puppy with all age appropriate shots, deworming, vet checked, and will provide Buyer with records and other necessary paperwork such as registration papers. Buyer must have puppy examined by a licensed/reputable Veterinarian within
48 hours of pick up. The exam must include a fecal test. If this is not done in a timely manner, the puppy’s health guarantee is VOIDED.
The buyer will be responsible for this examination and for any other charges incurred from this examination. If the puppy dies within the 48 hour period the Buyer must have an Autopsy done. The puppy is guaranteed to be free from hepatitis, parvovirus, distemper and canine influenza, within the 48 hour period. Puppy is also guaranteed to be free from any major genetic defects of the organs for 1 year from birth. If the puppy is found to have one of these sicknesses or defects, Buyer must contact Breeder the same day. Buyer must have signed paperwork from the vet with its findings. Buyer will have 3 days to return puppy with all paperwork including registration papers. Breeder may require a second opinion from their vet. If the puppy is still diagnosed with the same sickness, the puppy will be replaced with another puppy of equal value. Replacements can take up to 12 months.
Breeder does not guarantee/warrant the puppy against common giardia, internal and external parasites, hernias (inguinal or umbilical), mild luxating patella’s (grades 1-2), cherry eye, heart murmurs, or allergies. This guarantee does not cover open fontanel, skin allergies, uneven bites, undescended testicles, mange, seizures associated with hypoglycemia or injuries/death from neglect. The Buyer understands that internal parasites (including hookworms, roundworms, whip worms, coccidian and giardia) are considered a normal occurrence of all puppies and that their puppy will need fecal exams and deworming up to 16 weeks of age or more.
I DO NOT cover Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). It is your responsibility to make sure your puppy is eating and drinking on a regular basis. Please see attached page for more information.
If a major problem has been determined and return of puppy is desired and agreed upon by both parties, a replacement puppy of comparable size, color, gender and value will be given to the buyer as long as all terms of this contract have been followed. Under no circumstances will a cash refund be given. Any veterinarian expenses incurred determining problem/health status of this puppy will be the sole responsibility of the buyer and no refunds or reimbursements will be expected from seller. If the puppy is returned to seller shipping is the sole responsibility of the buyer and no reimbursement will be expected from the seller. Shipping will also be paid for by the buyer for the replacement puppy.
PET HOME RULES
If the puppy is being sold as a pet, the puppy will come with limited registration papers. Buyer agrees to SPAY/NEUTER the puppy before the age of 7 months for males and 10 months for females unless otherwise stated. Breeder will hold papers until proof of spay. The puppy is being sold to a pet home because it is either not suitable for breeding and the puppy can suffer if it is bred (size or health wise) or the puppy may not be of breed standard (pet quality), or I may strictly want the puppy not to be bred because of its bloodlines.
RULE FOR ALL PUPPIES
_____ Buyer promises that if at any time in this dog’s life, you find you cannot care for or do not wish to care for this dog anymore, this dog will not be taken to a shelter or given to another party. Buyer will take the puppy back for a rehoming fee of half of the original purchase price BUT if the breeder cannot take the puppy back at the moment, Breeder will allow buyers to rehome the puppy to another responsible PET HOME. This health guarantee will only go for the first owner of the puppy. There will be no 3rd party placement of full AKC. Puppy must go to a PET HOME ONLY. Buyer promises to pay/neuter puppy before it leaves their care, the new home must be approved by the Breeder and the Buyer must provide Breeder with all the new owner information. Registration papers must be sent back to the Breeder. This is to protect the puppy/dog and make sure he/she is not going into any other Breeder homes or puppy mills. If the Buyer sells the puppy to a 3rd party with Full AKC rights, brings the puppy to a shelter, does not spay/neuter the puppy before rehoming it, rehomes puppy without Breeder’s approval, or doesn’t provide Breeder with the puppy’s whereabouts, Buyer will owe the Breeder a penalty/fine of the amount paid for that puppy (original purchase price from Breeder). Breeder also has the right to seize the puppy if there is proof of abuse/neglect.
If a deposit has been made on a puppy to hold that puppy until old enough to leave its mother or for another reason agreed upon by seller and buyer, the buyer will make arrangements to pick up the puppy between 8 and 12 weeks (to be determined by individual puppy) or boarding charges will be added to the total of the bill at a cost of $5.00 per day and any other charges incurred for the puppy (vaccinations, veterinary care, deworming, etc.) will be charged to the buyers bill and will need to be paid in full before the puppy can be picked up by the buyer. If the puppy is not picked up within two weeks of the agreed upon date and time, seller has the right to sell the puppy to another party and buyer forfeits all rights to the puppy. If the puppy is to be shipped, buyer agrees to have the balance of the puppy, the deposit, as well as shipping, paid in full by the time the puppy reaches eight weeks of age. If the balance is not received and no other payment arrangements were made in advance, buyer forfeits any payments made on the puppy and seller has the right to sell the puppy to another buyer. If the puppy dies or becomes unfit for sale before the puppy is ready to be picked up, a refund will be granted as stated above.
When registering puppies, Charlotte’s Web has to be included in the puppies registered name. If you fail to do so, this contract will be submitted to AKC and the name corrected.
This contract represents Full and Final guarantees, agreements, and terms of the sale of this puppy between Seller and Buyer.
