Holding Agreement: A $300.00 deposit is required to hold your puppy. The seller assigns the buyer the guarantee that the dog will not be sold to any party other than the buyer as long as the buyer adheres to the Picking Up Your Puppy guideline. The $300.00 deposit is non-refundable and will be applied to the purchase price of the dog when the buyer assumes physical possession of the assigned dog. You may send a personal check, money order, or you may go onto our website and place your deposit via PayPal or with a credit card. Remainder of puppy/dog price will need to be paid in full before puppies are released to their new home. Puppies may be shipped out or picked up at Hammer Aussies at 8 weeks of age only after full payment has been received. We also sometimes will meet with buyers in different locations which will be well posted on our website for puppy buyers to see.
This puppy is guaranteed to be in good health, to the best of the seller’s knowledge. If he/she wishes, the buyer has 72 hours, from the date of ownership in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM THAT CANNOT BE RECTIFIED, you may return the puppy to us, at your expense, on the day following the vet exam, along with a veterinarian’s statement stating the problem. You will receive a full refund of the purchase price of the pup less any shipping fees. (Exclusion: This does not include the presence of parasites and also does not apply to a health problem resulting from an injury or accident due to your negligence), the following provisions will be honored. All medical expenses are the sole responsibility of the buyer.________
Viral, bacterial colds or infections such as Coccidia or Giardia (bloody stools) are a form of worms which are easily treated and are not covered in the health guarantee as they are natural things puppies can pick up. Puppies are naturally at risk for coccidia or giardia or worms which is often brought on by the stress of a new home, new food, new people, or just a change in environment. Buyers Initials: ______________
Another thing that may show up when a puppy is taken to a new environment is kennel cough (Bordatella- a raspy cough may be signs of this) which is common when puppies are transported to their new homes and is usually caused by bacteria. Kennel cough is self limiting and like the common cold, it must run its course. Full recovery is expected and kennel cough, coccidia, giardia on their own are not life threatening. All puppies are treated and vaccinated for distemper, parvo, coccidia, giardia, and wormed weekly before they leave our kennel. However, you need to be aware that these things can arise and that they are usually not serious (even though seeing blood in the stool appears serious) and are easily treated and we will not cover the treatment for them.
**2 Year Hip Guarantee against genetic moderate or severe hip dysplasia, and retinal eye disease. Because 60% of all canine hip dysplasia is related to poor nutrition, we require that your precious puppy continue with the Life's Abundance Nutritional System & Agility Formula for the first 25 months of his/her life in order to qualify for this 2 year health guarantee. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! If you continue with Life's Abundance All Stage System for the first 25 months, this dog is guaranteed against genetic moderate or severe hip dysplasia, and retinal eye disease until it is 25 months of age. The OFA is the sole and only judge in determining hip dysplasia. A CERF certified veterinarian must confirm any hereditary eye defects. Purchaser is to spay or neuter the puppy if this puppy is bought with out it’s breeding rights and keep him/her as a companion, buyer must provide written proof from his/her vetrinarian of the Spay/Neuter to recieve his/her AKC application for their puppy, this should be done by the time the puppy is 18 months old. AKC/ASCA Registration Puppy Contract Details below will apply.
***LIFETIME Free Replacement Puppy. Because we believe so strongly that nutrition plays a very big part in the health of an animal, we are offering a *Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy Guarantee. Should you choose this, the lifetime guarantee stipulates that the puppy must be fed Life's Abundance All Stage System & Agility Formula for their entire lifetime. We recommend The Agility Formula be given starting when the puppy is 6 months old. The reason we have chosen to offer this option to our guarantee, is because so many dogs and cats are acquiring serious life threatening health risks through poor diet and vitamin deficiency. We believe that these products provide the optimum nutritional benefits ensuring good health and longevity for the dog, which is why we are willing to stand behind this guarantee. If your Australian Shepherd does not reach it’s life expectancy of 12 years, you will be eligible to get a free replacement puppy of equal value.
In regards to hereditary defects, there are never any guarantees that a dog would be free of a genetic disorder from past generations. But since we may not know if there are any potential weaknesses in a dog, we believe that the diet and lack of vitamins can exacerbate these conditions if found. Therefore by providing the dog with quality food and supplements, we are hoping to reduce the chance of these potential weaknesses from hindering their quality of life, should this ever occur.
Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy Information: - this guarantee does not include the vet check, CERF exam, shots, worming, transportation, carrier, or other fees. This Lifetime Free Replacement Puppy Health Guarantee is for the health of your Australian Shepherd, and does not cover accidental death, neglect, abuse, or injuries that your dog may sustain while being a part of your family. We believe that Life's Abundance Pet Food and Supplements are a great combination to provide your dog with optimal health, so that your Australian Shepherd can live a long and happy life with your family!
