After 3 days any illness will be presumed to have been introduced AFTER the animal has left our property and is no longer the responsibility of the Seller. ‘Purchase date’ is the date listed on this contract or the date shipped.


_______ (Initial) All dogs sold with breeding rights will have a full 4-panel disease test disclosure. Dogs will either be individually tested or cleared by parentage. Copies of these tests will be given to Buyer at no additional charge and results also noted below.

______ (Initial) Seller guarantees  the fertility of any dog sold with full registration and breeding rights under these terms: *Infertility due to lack of care, surgery, poor nutrition, disease, accident, and/or injury will NOT be covered! 

*Buyer must notify Seller at the time the issue first arrises or at the time Buyer first thinks there may be a problem. MALE DOGS are guaranteed to have two descended testicles and viable sperm by one year of age. FEMALE DOGS are guaranteed to be able to produce a litter by two years of age (with proof of proper breeding/cover).  *Female bitch must not show any signs of having whelped a litter or prior C-section. *NO offspring must have been produced at any time. *NO offspring must be registered or listed through AKC or any registry now or at any time. *Any defect MUST be verified and documented by a licensed veterinarian. *Any sperm defects must be verified by a reproduction specialist or lab with documented proof ( sperm must be collected under controlled environment no less than two separate times at least 2 weeks apart by a specialist.

If the dog proves to be fertile it will be returned to Buyer at the Buyer’s expense and Buyer will be responsible for all relative veterinary and lab costs incurred  by Seller (SO-.if you collect your male dog just prior to having a clinic collect him so that it falsely appears that the dog has few to no sperm… In the end this is fraud and will cost you a lot of money after we prove the fertility of the animal.)
