Purchase Agreement/Health Guarantee
Thank you for deciding to purchase one of our puppies. We want to make this a stress free enjoyable experience for you. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions or concerns that you might have along the way. We will keep you up to date with information about your puppy as it grows until it is time for your puppy to go to its new home.
This contract is written for the protection of both the breeder and the buyer – However, it is primarily written to protect the health and general well-being of the puppy.
Conditions and Terms
HEALTH & NUTRITION: Buyer agrees to keep the dog in good physical condition with regularly scheduled vaccinations, wormings, flea, tick and heartworm prevention and to provide proper shelter, exercise, fresh water, dog food, treats, pet care products and nutritional supplements as described in this paragraph. Because 60% of all degenerative disease is related to poor nutrition, we require that the puppy remain solely on Fromm products without lapse for at least the first year of the puppy’s life in order to qualify for the one year guarantee against heritable disease.
GUARANTEES: Seller is in compliance with all State (Minnesota) regulations and makes every effort to ensure that the puppy is healthy at the time of transfer. We will not allow a puppy to leave until we are certain that the puppy is ready for the trip to your home and has passed a licensed veterinary health inspection, is free from any illness, and is eating quite well on its own. Your new puppy MUST be examined by a licensed veterinarian within 48 business hours of receiving your puppy to validate this guarantee.
*****However, any exam performed by a vet belonging to the Banfield network (Petsmart/Petco) will VOID this guarantee in its entirety due to their reputation of financial abuse of new puppy owners.***********Should your vet find the puppy “unfit” for sale upon this initial examination, it will be replaced provided the puppy is returned with a written statement from the vet stating the nature of their findings. Northwood Doodles also has the right to have their vet check the puppy out prior to any exchange!! It is the Buyer’s responsibility to return the puppy along with all registration papers and other package contents. SELLER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES THAT BUYER HAS INCURRED.
****The seller will not guarantee the Leptospirosis Vaccine. We do not give our dogs this vaccine due to its many adverse side effects. If the buyer chooses to give this vaccine to your dog, any cost from adverse reactions such as a puppy coming down with an auto-immune disease shortly thereafter will not be covered. It is completely at the buyer’s discretion to give the vaccine but the seller has no responsibility to pay for adverse reactions or problems that could be associated with the vaccine, even if not proven. If you don’t give the vaccine, you are at risk to get the disease. If you do give it, you are at risk for a reaction. Do your own research, consult with your vet and make your own decision.*****
Your new puppy has been given vaccines that were delivered to us in cold pack and were immediately transferred to our refrigerated storage until the vaccine was used and the coordinating label placed in your puppy’s vaccination booklet following the manufacturer’s instructions. All vaccines are NOT created equal; therefore, you or your vet may notice a different schedule has been followed according to the specific vaccination administered. Because over vaccination can cause serious health consequences, any vaccination given before your puppy is actually due for its next vaccine will VOID this guarantee in its entirety. All of our puppies have completed their regimen of immunization to their age appropriate vaccination schedule at time of delivery. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to set up an ongoing appropriate vaccination schedule with your vet. We assume no responsibility for any illness to other household pets resulting in being exposed to your new puppy.
Seller cannot guarantee the puppy against illness or opportunistic parasite brought on by the stress of moving (from our house to yours), shipping, or motion sickness resulting from being transported. This stress can ignite illnesses and opportunistic parasites such as hypoglycemia (sugar drop) or coccidia (dormant in most live animals), giardia, kennel cough, etc. Seller also does not guarantee the puppy to be “worm-free” as this is an on-going process that, once the dog is out of our control, is responsibility of Buyer. These are easily and economically treated and should they occur SELLER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES OR OTHER COSTS THAT BUYER HAS INCURRED.
This guarantee does NOT cover any costs associated with spaying or neutering, nor does it cover injury or death from any routine surgical procedure. Further, 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. Seller cannot guarantee size or conformation and does not imply or intend to imply any potential and/or prospect of show quality 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 or tail docking.
I have included in your puppy packet a complete health record and a Vet. Certificate of Health for your DVM to review. I give no refund if your puppy eats any hazardous plant, food, object, medicine, or poisons or gets hit by any vehicle or runs away.
***Please do not expose your puppy to other dogs that are not vaccinated until he/she has completed the entire vaccination schedule – around 16-20 weeks old. Northwood Doodles is not responsible for any contractable diseases or infections if seller does not adhere to this recommendation from the Breeder.
***This guarantee does not include minor illnesses and health issues such as colds, allergies, internal or external parasites or umbilical hernias. However, the breeder will disclose any known illnesses or health issues prior to the sale.
ABUSE/NEGLECT: In the event that the dog is mistreated, neglected, abused in any way, kept outside in extreme heat or extreme cold conditions, kept on wire flooring, Seller has the right to rescue the dog immediately, with no notice or compensation to Buyer. Buyer shall voluntarily surrender any kennel club registration papers (if applicable), microchip records, and health records.
I do not cover surgery related to umbilical hernias, if your puppy should have one or any problems associated with one. Your puppy has been offered at a discount if there is one present as we disclose any faults at time of sale. I do not guarantee size as puppies can inherit genes from either parent. The buyer must agree to provide veterinary care within this first year, including annual heart worm checks and preventatives and to keep vaccinations current. Failure to comply with and provide documentation of the above requirements voids this warranty. Hypoglycemic shock and death is covered within 72 hours after leaving my premises. If your puppy were to die as a result of hypoglycemic issues within 72 hours, I will refund the purchase price of the puppy. Vet bills treating this condition are not covered. At this time of transfer, you assume all continued health care of puppy and accept the responsibilities of pet ownership and accept the puppy as is on date of sale.
If Buyer complies with all of the terms contained within this agreement, then Seller warrants the health of the puppy for one (1) year of life against genetic life-threatening genetic defects.
The dog must NOT breed before the age of two (2) years otherwise this contract is NULL and VOID as to any guarantee.
THIS DOCUMENT IS A LEGALLY-BINDING DOCUMENT. ANY COURT COSTS AND ATTORNEY FEES NECESSARY TO ENFORCE THIS CONTRACT SHALL BE PAID BY BUYER IN THE STATE OF IDAHO AND THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA COUNTY OF KITTSON, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL GOVERN THE INTERPRETATION OF THIS CONTRACT.
