Puppy Agreement and Health Guarantee
This agreement states that the said puppy has been purchased by the said buyer with a non-refundable minimum deposit of $200, with the remaining amount to be paid by the buyer on or before transfer date. Payments are to be made in cash, check or money order.
In the unlikely occurrence of injury on breeders’ property before transfer of ownership, all money paid towards puppy will be refunded or transferred to another puppy (from this litter or the next). Deposits paid towards puppy before litter is born are refundable at breeders’ discretion. Deposits paid after litter is born are NON-REFUNDABLE.
This document acts as a BILL OF SALE, TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP, and HEALTH AGREEMENT for said puppy and is between said buyer and Christine Whitmore, Christi and Alexis Chism.
Buyer WILL NOT receive puppy until PAID IN FULL.
Registration, pedigree, health record, agreement, and puppy-pack will accompany said puppy at time of
transfer. We DO NOT guarantee SIZE, ABILITY AND/OR BREEDING CAPABILITIES.
We have taken all of the necessary precautions to ensure that you are receiving a healthy puppy that will become a part of your family. They have been selectively bred for disposition, conformation, prospective abilities in the field and show ring and overall quality. All puppies have been given a clean bill of health examination by our licensed and trusted veterinarian and have also received appropriate vaccination and worming applications. All puppies have had their tails docked to the appropriate length and have had their dew-claws removed.
Shipping is an additional $400. This is to cover the cost of the Airline ticket, shipping
crate, health certifications, and travel fees. We ship Delta Airlines, so they babies can fly wherever Delta flies. Airlines have strict guidelines when it comes to storms and temperatures. When we book a flight for
your puppy, we look for the shortest and most-direct flights, but understand that this is not always possible.
Environment, Parasites and Exercise
You need to protect you puppy. The environment in their new homes the first few months is vital for their good health and development. It can shape their growth, disposition, and wellbeing. DO NOT take your puppy into public places or around strange animals- especially before they have had all of their vaccinations- this includes rest areas, Petsmart/Petco’s, and any other places that are frequented by other animals. You never know who vaccinates and who doesn’t and your puppy is vulnerable. Make sure that their environment is clean, pest-free and void of problem-causing bacteria. This guarantee does not cover health problems or death due to non-congenital or non-life-threatening diseases, owner neglect, parasites, fungal or bacterial infections, feeding, flea/lice/mite infestations, poisoning, environmental challenges, training and/or behavior problems, accidents, or injury due to strenuous activities participated in before the age of 24 months (field trials, hunting, agility, open obedience, roading, and/or hiking/running) Puppies grow very fast and need to be protected against stress-induced hip dysplasia and growth defects. Buyer must recognize that intestinal parasites, fungal/bacterial infections are not uncommon in puppies and very often appear in their early development. We go through every length to prevent intestinal parasites and such infections in our puppies. However, purchasers must realize that the stress of going to a new home, changes in environment, and traveling can result in the appearance in parasites and infections.
Returning the Puppy
In the event that a situation arises and you cannot or do not want to keep your puppy, we will always take the puppy back. In this case, we are not obligated to refund any money paid towards dog (initial cost, vet bills, travel costs, etc.) but require the surrendering of all health records, registration papers, or any other corresponding info for the dog. If for any reason that you sell, re-home, or give-away any of our puppies, buyer must contact us before transfer. We can either take the dog back or assist you in finding an appropriate home. If seller transfers dog without our knowledge guarantee is null and void at breeder’s discretion. Guarantee is NON-TRANSFERRABLE. ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE WELCOME TO COME HOME!
Vaccinations, Worming and Vet Examinations
Take your puppy to the vet for an exam, worming schedule and appropriate vaccinations within 72 hours (3 days). Buyer must let breeder know if scheduling challenges arise if puppy is transferred over a weekend and you need a small extension on their initial exam date. When buying a puppy, schedule these dates ahead of time to avoid a possible voiding of their health guarantee! Buyer agrees to take responsibility of buying and owning a live animal and paying for any and all expenses incurred to keep the animal in
satisfactory condition. Puppies need at least 4 vaccinations. I administer their first vaccination when they are 6-7 weeks old and then they need 2 more in 2-4 wk intervals. The 4th shot should be given after 16 weeks old for further prevention of Parvo and Distemper. Worming in puppies is done every 2 weeks before they leave our home. It is very easy and should be done on a regular basis. Regular worming can be done every 3-4 months- especially if you expose your dogs to natural wildlife and the outdoors and/or dog shows. It is very easy for puppies to get parasites, so make sure you follow dosage directions and pay attention to their stools. When you are choosing a vet, make sure that you are completely comfortable with them and trust them completely. When it comes to procedures and advice, it can be helpful to get a second opinion if you are in doubt. Rabies vaccinations should be given at 6 months- you must get this done by a professional veterinarian or clinician. Our health guarantee is considered null and void if appropriate vaccinations and worming applications are not given at the appropriate dates and not kept current. You must keep a record of all vaccinations and wormings- even if administered personally.
Breeders guarantee that buyer will be satisfied with the puppy purchased. If not satisfied, buyer can return puppy (at buyers cost) and receive refund (minus $200 deposit) or a replacement puppy (when available). ONLY VALID FOR 24 HOURS AFTER TRANSFER OF PUPPY. If puppy is found to be ill at time of initial vet check with a life-threatening disease or sickness, full refund or replacement will be awarded. In this case, buyer must have diagnosis from licensed veterinarian stating illness. This must also fall into our 72 hour
Hip Dysplasia, OFA and Breeding
This puppy is guaranteed to be free from Hip Dysplasia for two years from their date of birth. Should your puppy develop Hip Dysplasia that renders them unsuitable as a pet, a replacement puppy (when available) or a 50% monetary refund (as soon as possible) will be given upon receipt of certified letter from a licensed veterinarian attesting to the disorder and a copy of the OFA evaluation report. If Hip Dysplasia occurs but doesn’t affect their ability to be a pet, a 50% monetary reimbursement (when available) will be awarded upon receipt of a certified letter from a licensed veterinarian attesting to the disorder, a copy of the OFA evaluation report, a spay or neuter certificate from your veterinarian, and their AKC papers. Hip Dysplasia can occur from physical-stress related injuries. If this occurs because of an accident or owner negligence (over working when they are too young), then this hip guarantee is void. Said puppy is to
be OFA certified before 26 months old. No breeding shall be allowed if the OFA evaluation is lower than FAIR. Said puppy shall not be bred to another dog that has an OFA evaluation lower than FAIR. There shall be NO BREEDING before 24 months old and/or before their OFA evaluation. ANY BREEDING BEFORE 24 MONTHS AND BEFORE OFA EVALUATION WILL VOID THIS GUARANTEE.

This includes diseases or defects that significantly decrease their quality of life as a pet or result in having to euthanize.

BREEDERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR VET BILLS OR ANY EXPENSES INCURRED- WE WILL NOT PAY YOUR BILLS!
Spay & Neuter
If you do not plan on breeding or showing and the dog will be a pet, please have them fixed. There is no need to have any unplanned or unwanted litters. If dog does not have a good OFA evaluation (below FAIR rating) or CERF evaluation, said dog needs to be spayed or neutered. Dogs deemed pet quality (will make a great pet or hunting partner) need to be altered between 6-14 months. If you think you might want or breed or show your dog before they get fixed, have them evaluated at 12-14 months to see if they would
contribute to the GWP breed- As not all dogs are meant to be bred. If the dog is found to have only one testicle, it must by neutered. WE WILL NOT REFUND FOR THIS REASON. If the dog is found to only have one testicle it will NOT AFFECT its ability to live.
BUYER MUST REALIZE THAT PARTICULAR BREEDS ARE PREDISPOSED TO A VARIETY OF HEALTH OBSTACLES AND ISSUES AND ARE ESPECIALLY SUSCEPTABLE AS PUPPIES. PLEASE RESEARCH YOUR CHOSEN BREED AND ALL THINGS COMMON.
