Failure on the part of the Buyer to have the Puppy's health verified will result in any and all warranties being canceled. Seller accepts no liability for any communicable diseases after 72 hours from when the puppy leaves the possession of the Seller.
If puppy/dog does not pass a general health exam, Buyer agrees to notify breeder via email or phone within 24 hours of veterinary notification and provide a copy of the original signed licensed veterinary statement of health. Minor, treatable problems such as diarrhea, coccidiosis, parasites, etc. are common problems in puppies especially under the stress of new circumstances, and will not be covered by this warranty, although every effort is made to prevent this.
Buyer acknowledges that Seller is not responsible for Buyer’s veterinary expenses at any time or under any circumstance.
Seller also warranties this puppy free from “genetic defects”, such as hereditary cataracts(HC) and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRCD) that would prevent the puppy from being a companion animal, until the puppy reaches one year of age. If this puppy is found to have a genetic defect of this kind, this must be verified by a licensed certified veterinarian. In case of a genetic eye deformity, written notification must come to the Seller from a Board Certified Veterinary
Ophthalmologist. If a “genetic disorder” is found, the Buyer may choose to either, return the puppy/dog to the Seller at the Buyer’s expense and the Seller will then replace the puppy with one of the same sex and coat color from the first available litter (puppy to be determined by the Seller), or the Buyer may choose to keep the puppy/dog. Under no circumstances will money be refunded.
This contract will only be valid while the seller is breeding Australian Shepherds. Should the Seller
discontinue breeding dogs of this variety, this contract shall be void.
This contract is between the Seller and Buyer(s) signed below. If this puppy/dog is sold to a third party, this contract shall be void.
Purchase agreement: It is the Seller's sincere intention that none of their dogs are ever taken to a
shelter. If at any point in the future, the Buyer cannot keep this puppy/dog that is still in good health, the Seller agrees to assist in finding this animal a new home. At any time, the Buyer can surrender the dog back to the Seller.
Puppy is warrantied only for the purpose of being a pet/companion animal. Although it could be
capable/suitable of performing other functions, such as show or breeding quality, no warranty is being

puppy/dog upon when the puppy/dog leaves the premise of the Seller.

of the puppy’s/dog’s life. Failure to do so causes this contract to become null and void. Puppy/dog will

will be provided to Buyer. In case of litigation, the venue shall be Nevada County, CA.
