Breeder strongly encourages buyer to attend puppy obedience classes with puppy to help provide proper socialization. Breeder strongly urges owner to spay/neuter the puppy at or near 6 months of age as recommended by a veterinarian.
If at any time the buyer is unable to keep the said puppy, please contact seller. We will be happy to help you place your dog in a good home or will take him/her back into our home. No refund of money or replacement puppy will be offered under these circumstances. At no time should you take your puppy/dog to a shelter/pound! We guarantee we WILL always take our puppies back at any time.
We offer no guarantee on the eye color, weight, or height of your puppy as these traits are unpredictable and can change during the growth process. Although our dogs come from generations of proven miniatures/toys, crop outs are still possible.
C. Health guarantee does not cover any parasite, internal or external as this is a treatable condition. The said puppy has been vaccinated and dewormed. A record/schedule will be provided.
D. This puppy is a purebred Miniature or Toy Australian Shepherd.
E. A deposit in the amount of $200 is required to hold the puppy of your choice. Deposits are non-refundable. Deposits are applied to the purchase price of your puppy. Deposits on a puppy ensure it is reserved for you and means it is no longer available for sale because it is saved for you. The outstanding balance shall be paid in cash, money order, or cashier’s check before the purchaser obtains possession of the puppy. Other forms of payment must be approved by seller.
The deposit signifies intent on the behalf of the purchaser to follow through with the purchase transaction of the puppy.
If the buyer changes his/or her mind the deposit is forfeited and NO refund will be given. Please be certain you want to reserve a puppy because deposits are non-refundable.
If the seller chooses to void the contract for any reason the deposit will be refunded in full to the buyer.
If some tragic accident occurs and the puppy should die before it goes home with the buyer we will offer a refund to the buyer, unless the buyer wants to apply the deposit to another available puppy, or the deposit can be held for a future puppy of the buyer's choice.
If the color or sex of the puppy is not produced in the mentioned litter the buyer shall be offered another puppy from the same litter. If the buyer chooses not to purchase a puppy from the said litter (see above description of litter) the deposit will be applied to another available puppy/litter.
Any money placed on a puppy is non-refundable and non-transferable unless agreed to by seller.
It has been mutually agreed by both the seller and the buyer that the puppy will be held until 8 weeks old unless other arrangements have been made in writing and shown below.
This contract is an agreement that the buyer will spay or neuter puppy at approximately 7 months of age as recommended by a veterinarian, or purchase breeding rights.
