Puppy Contract Buyer/Seller Agreement
Seller certifies that this puppy is a purebred German Wirehaired Pointer of sound body, good health, and free of communicable diseases as far as appears to the eye. This puppy has been checked by a veterinarian and was found to be healthy and has received one set of puppy shots and been treated for worms. Buyer is encouraged to have the puppy examined by their own veterinarian within three days of the sale. You will receive a replacement puppy of equal or greater value from our next available litter if this puppy has any congenital defects which result (or may result) in death or in its having to be euthanized within one year of this sale. Seller must be provided with a written report of the dog's health problem from Buyer's veterinarian. The Buyer assumes full responsibility for all costs and care during this time.
Full Registration: This puppy is purchased with full AKC registration and breeding rights but must not be used for breeding purposes before the age of two (2) years. Within two (2) years from date of purchase, should your puppy develop hip dysplasia or any genetic skeletal disorder, upon receipt of (1) a letter from a duly licensed veterinarian attesting to such condition (copies of x-rays may be required), (2) a copy of the O.F.A. evaluation report, (3) a spay or neuter certificate and (4) the AKC registration certificate on such puppy, you will receive a replacement puppy of equal or greater value from our next available litter. Exclusion: There are NO guarantees on a puppy which is bred before two years of age.
Limited Registration: This puppy is purchased as a pet and may not be bred (intentionally or unintentionally). You agree to spay or neuter this puppy at whatever age you and your vet decide is safe, but not before 1 yr old, and we encourage you to wait at least 2 yrs. Within two (2) years from date of purchase, should your puppy develop hip dysplasia or any genetic skeletal disorder, which disorder will severely diminish your puppy's quality and enjoyment of life and necessitate euthanasia, upon receipt of (1) a letter from a duly licensed veterinarian attesting to such condition and (2) a certificate of euthanasia, as well as (3) the puppy's AKC registration certificate, you will receive a replacement puppy from our next available litter. A pet puppy who is found to have a mild condition, which condition will not in any way shorten or diminish the quality of life for that puppy, will NOT be replaced. On Limited Registration puppies, spay or neuter certificates from a duly licensed veterinarian may be required by seller before registration papers will be issued. If pup is purchased for competition or hunting purposes and becomes lame due to hip dysplasia, thus making pup unable to perform tasks which pup was purchased for, we will also replace the pup and not require euthenasia or pup to be returned to us. But, veterinary proof will be required, and we may ask for a second opinion.
Due to the large size to which our dogs grow and to the variety and quality of available dog foods, we require that ALL of our dogs be kept on an all natural dog food that has been approved by us, at least until the age of 2 1/2 years. This dog food is available online or from a local distributor as advised by the seller. "Failure to keep your pet on this food will render all guarantees null and void." _
Seller will not guarantee the hips of a female puppy which is bred before two years of age. This guarantee will become void if hip problems arise due to owner's neglect to follow the written guidelines from seller concerning precautionary measures one must follow to avoid hip problems or due to any injury sustained while in buyer's possession.
Seller guarantees that Buyer will be satisfied with the puppy purchased, If Buyer is not satisfied with the puppy received, puppy may be returned to Seller at Buyer's cost. Seller will replace puppy or a full refund of the purchase price (minus the deposit) will be made (Seller's option). This Satisfaction Guarantee is valid for 24 hours after Buyer receives puppy.
Registration papers will be furnished to Buyer upon receipt from the A.K.C. and when complete payment is made for the puppy and spay/neuter(in the case of limited registration) is complete. If payment is made by personal check or money-order, the registration papers will be held until the check/money-order has cleared. The Buyer has the option of naming their new dog with the exception that all puppies carry the kennel name "Blueline"(or "Blaue Linie" in the case of German dogs) in their A.K.C. registered name, and that the pup‘s registered name fits with the theme of the litter, if one is given. Buyer agrees to register this dog in accordance with the time limits specified by the A.K.C. and send a copy of that registration to Seller upon receipt. If Buyer fails to use "Blueline" in the registered name or to not register dog in accordance with this paragraph, all guarantees made by Seller in this contract will become void.
