Contract for Pet Puppies - Limited Registration (Not for showing or Breeding)

Below is the Puppy contract that ALL new puppy owners MUST sign. If you are considering adding a puppy to your family before you send an application please read through this contract. If you are not prepared to sign it then you will need to look elsewhere for a pup. These terms are not negotiable.

Pups sold on the Main Register have a seperate contract which can be emailed to you.

 


 

The following terms and conditions are agreed to by both the Breeder and Purchaser:

1.            The Purchaser WILL de-sex the abovementioned puppy before 12 months of age and not before 9 months of age (at their own cost). A copy of the certificate of de-sexing will be supplied to the Breeder as soon as possible.

2.            This puppy is sold for the purposes of a family pet and not for breeding or showing. This puppy is believed to be healthy, with no signs of any Hip/Elbow dysplasia and has received a health check by a registered veterinarian at 6 weeks of age and given a temporary vaccination for distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus. This puppy will not develop Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration (PRA) or Exercise Induce Collapse (EIC) in accordance with the genetic testing of the parents or, grandparents or, great grandparents of the puppy.

 3.            The Purchaser accepts that the Breeder does not warrant the following on the puppy:

i)              Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD);

 

ii)             Behavioral problems or personality traits not associated with temperament;

iii)            Other conditions not set out herein.

4.            The Purchaser may choose to have the puppy checked out by their veterinary surgeon within 48 hours to be given a general health check if so wished. This health check and any tests or examinations associated with this check will be at the Purchaser’s expense. If the veterinarian discovers any problem, which in his/her professional opinion renders the puppy unfit for sale, the Breeder will take the puppy back and refund the purchase price on condition that the puppy is returned within 72 hours and is accompanied by a letter of explanation from the veterinarian. The puppy must be in the same state of health as when it was purchased and all costs to return the puppy will be at the Purchaser’s expense. The Purchaser notes carefully that the puppy may well become a much loved member of the family within a very short time. The Purchaser agrees that the Breeder will not be held responsible for any distress or upset caused by the need to return the puppy to the Breeder.

5.            The Breeder acknowledges that this breed can develop Hip/Elbow dysplasia. The Breeder has acted responsibly by only using a stud dog and dam with hips and elbows in an acceptable range (no more than a combination score of 14 between the stud and dam). The Purchaser accepts that the Breeder has acted responsible and that there is a very slight chance that Hip/Elbow dysplasia may affect this puppy.

If the puppy does develop Hip/Elbow dysplasia up to 12 months of age, the Breeder will:

i)              Request for the puppy to be x-rayed by a vet and diagnosed by an accredited radiographer/or specialist that the puppy has been affected by Hip/Elbow dysplasia at the Purchaser’s costs;

ii)             Upon diagnosis of Hip/Elbow dysplasia, the Breeder will refund the full purchase price paid and allow the Purchaser two options:

a)           The Purchaser can return the puppy to Breeder, from which the puppy will become the full responsibility of the Breeder henceforth. The Purchaser understands and agrees that once the dog has been returned to the Breeder, the dog becomes the responsibility of the Breeder and that all matters concerning its future wellbeing are the sole concern of the Breeder.

b)  The Purchaser can retain the puppy, but will be responsible for any losses, expenses or distress (ie. veterinarian costs, x-ray costs, ongoing treatment costs, related to the Hip/Elbow dysplasia) that might be incurred with the Hip/Elbow dysplasia. See clause 10 of the contract.

This undertaking only covers the genetic development of Hip/Elbow dysplasia and will be null and void if caused through accident, injury, neglect or environmental causes (ie. jumping of the back of a ute, running on tiles, over exercise prior to 9 months of age, running up and down stairs, playing with another dog and injuries).

6.            Under no circumstance will the Purchaser sell, lease, give or lend this Labrador to a dog dealer for export, puppy farm or similar establishment. The Purchaser also agrees that if the dog needs rehoming and he/she is unable to find a suitable home, that the dog will be returned to the Breeder. The Purchaser understands and agrees that once the dog has been returned to the Breeder, the dog becomes the responsibility of the Breeder and that all matters concerning its future wellbeing and rehoming are to be the sole concern of the Breeder.

7.            Following the purchase of this puppy, that he/she will provide a safe, well fenced environment for the puppy. The Purchaser also agrees to ensure any veterinary treatment which may be required from time to time, will be obtained promptly as required. The Purchaser also gives the Breeder or their agent permission to periodically check that the puppy is being cared for in a satisfactory manner, if desired.

8.            The Purchaser acknowledges that he/she has received:

i)    Care For Your Labrador Puppy Guide Book ii)      Vaccination Card

                     iii)   Certificate of Identification – Microchip details and changeover

9.            The Purchaser will provide adequate training (ie, sit, stay and drop) for their puppy and will correct any poor behavior displayed. The Purchaser is encouraged to take their puppy to ‘puppy school’ to help with training techniques and help with socialising their puppy.

10.          The Purchaser agrees to have this puppy covered by pet insurance (of their choosing and at their cost) that will cover all health issues (must include hip or elbow dysplasia as a minimum) until 18 months of age. It is preferred that the Purchaser maintain pet insurance for the remaining life of this puppy.
