Sire AKC No. Dam AKC No.
Sellers have, to the best of their knowledge and ability, made a good faith effort to determine that the Puppy’s dam and sire are free of inherited genetic disease and have made this information available to Buyer. Buyer, by signing this contract, acknowledges that he/she is aware that there are health problems that are not uncommon to the Golden Retriever breed. Some of these potential health problems are known to be genetic, some are believed to have some genetic predisposition, and the cause of others is unknown or is random in occurrence. Buyer understands and acknowledges that Sellers cannot predetermine the outcome of the breeding and therefore can make no assurances that the Puppy will be free of inherited genetic or other disease, nor that the Puppy will meet Buyer’s expectations as respects conformation, performance, or temperament.
As soon as is reasonably possible after the Puppy is seven weeks of age, Sellers will make the Puppy available to be picked up by the Buyer at Seller’s location, or Sellers will ship the Puppy to Buyer by conveyance agreed to by Sellers and Buyer and at a time reasonably convenient to Buyer. Buyer shall provide a ship crate acceptable to the agreed conveyance, and Buyer shall be responsible for all shipping expenses, which shall be paid in advance of shipping.
PUPPY HEALTH AT PICKUP/SHIPPING
The Seller guarantees the Puppy to be in good health on the date of delivery. Buyer agrees to have the Puppy examined by a licensed Veterinarian within 3 days of receipt of the Puppy. If the Puppy is found to have an illness or defect, hereditary or congenital at this time, which would not allow the puppy to be a viable ‘pet’, then the Buyer shall elect to keep the Puppy or return the Puppy to the Seller for a refund. If the Buyer elects to return the Puppy, Buyer shall, within 5 days after the date of the signing of this contract, send to Seller by certified mail a written Veterinarian’s certificate stating the health concerns. Upon receipt by Seller of said certificate, Buyer shall be obligated to return the Puppy to Sellers at Buyer’s expense. Upon receipt of the Puppy, the Seller shall be obligated to refund all monies received from Buyer toward the purchase price of the Puppy and further performance under this contract shall be null and void.
