A deposit is a trust. The puppy you have chosen will be held for you until it is ready to leave it's mother. All puppies are treated equally with loving care whether the puppy is sold or not. The puppy you have purchased will be ready to go to its forever home between 8 and 9 weeks old. All puppies with deposits on them must be selected by the time the puppies are 4 to 5 weeks old to be fair to all the people with deposits. If for some reason there isn't enough puppies for all the deposits taken you will be put on the waiting list for the next litter. Deposits are non-refundable. The order in which the deposits are received determines the order in which you are to chose your puppy. If you put first deposit down you get first pick whether it be a boy or a girl, etc. and so on. If there are not enough puppies to cover all the deposits your deposit will be switched to the next future litter.
We will give you an idea of the date in which your puppy will be ready to be taken home. They will be vet checked first, they have to be completely weaned, and they have to have their teeth in strong, no exceptions. Once the date has been determined I will work with you to establish a pick up date. If you cannot pick up your puppy within the pick up date. There will be a boarding fee per day past the pick up date. I want my puppies to be placed in a timely manner when they are ready so they are bonding with their new families. If something needs to be prearranged ahead of time, I need to know this by the time the puppy is 6 weeks old. FAILURE TO PICK UP YOUR PUPPY BY the estimated pick up date will result in termination of this purchase agreement, and you will lose your deposit. I will not hold a puppy indefinitely for someone. I do make some exceptions if I know about it ahead of time, liked planned vacations. I will discuss this further with you.
Deposit of $500 is required to hold the puppy until it is ready to go to his/her forever home. Puppies must be picked up at the time they are ready between 8 and 9 weeks old. This is a crucial bonding time between the puppy and their new family. If you are using paypal for the deposit it is $300.
Payment in full is due by the time the puppy is six weeks old. Final payment is cash or cashiers check only. If puppy is being sent via airplane or driver, the puppy must be paid for 2 weeks prior to being sent to their new owners in order for payment to clear.
All sales are final. No cash is ever refunded just because you changed your mind, no longer want, found elsewhere, etc. I want you to be comitted to purchasing the puppy at the time you are putting a deposit down. I want to know the family that is purchasing this puppy is going to give them a loving, forever home. I do have a clause in my contract that if you have to return your puppy there are no refunds. I do not want to have a puppy returned because you no longer want,
cannot handle the potty training, etc. However, I will take the puppy back and find it a new loving home. This is very rare, but if the situation arises, please know that I will make the best decision to place the puppy in a loving, safe environment, and no money will be exchanged for the return.
All puppies have been vet checked several times before adoption. All puppies come with a health guarantee against life threatening genetic disorders. My Veterinarian is Dr. Michael Phelps, DVM at Coit Animal Clinic, 1958 Coit Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506. Phone 616-363-5530. He will vet check the puppies at 8 weeks old before they go to their forever homes along with administer their first set of shots/worming.
The puppy comes with all health records, puppy care guide, and a puppy packet. Puppies are sold as pet quality, and the purchase agreement also requires you to spay or neuter your puppy before it is one year old. Puppies are sold as pet quality and are not intended to be used for breeding purposes. Registration papers will be released once proof of spay or neuter is given to me from your licensed veterinarian.
Health guarantee: To the best of my knowledge your puppy is healthy and will be vet checked, wormed and have it's first set of shots upon purchase. Your puppy is guaranteed for a period of one year against life threatening birth diseases existing at birth. Should a condition arise, proof of the condition by a your licensed veterinarian will need to be documented and I must be contacted immediately. My vet will verify the condition and you may return the puppy for replacement. At no time is the money refunded nor veterinary or shipping fees be paid by the breeder.
Buyer agrees to have puppy seen by a qualified veterinarian within 72 hrs of release to have it checked at buyers expense. Once the vet check is completed sale becomes final. If the buyer doesn't take the puppy to the vet the sale automatically becomes final in 72 hours. I highly recommend that this vet check take place or the health guarantee becomes void.
Please keep your puppy on the current food he is receiving. Changing the puppy's food can cause loose stools and a puppy can become ddhydrated very quickly. If you are going to change his or her food, please check with your veterinarian and make sure you mix the food 50/50 to wean them off what they are currently eating. If the puppy does have loose stools please take a stool sample to your veterinarian immediately. The puppy food I use contains no wheat or corn, wheat can create tear staining problems in the Coton De Tulear breed.
Buyer agrees to maintain immunizations and regular vet checks through out dog's life. Buyer understands that the puppy is not fully immunized against parvo until all the puppy vaccinations have been given. Buyer should not take puppy to public places, parks, and other areas that they could contact parvo until the puppy has had his or her third or fourth immunication (some vets require 3 sets of shots, some require 4 sets of shots.)
Buyer agrees to keep dog as an "indoor" pet and will not leave dog outside alone or for prolonged periods of time. I want my puppies to go to loving, safe homes.
Buyer agrees never to sell dogs to research labs or pet shops, and agrees to return the dog if they find out their lifestyle has changed and no longer would be capable of providing a loving home for them, so I can place in a good home. I am always available after the sale if you have any questions. I want the adjustment to their new homes to be a safe and happy one.
