breed dogs with health issues.
Buyer(s) agree if the Seller determines this animal does not qualify for the
breeding program, the dog will be Spayed and will not be bred. Disqualification
for the breeding program will be based upon disqualifications stated in the

problems determined by a qualified veterinarian, with the Breed Quality Exam (BQE).

there is a disagreement regarding disqualification, either on the buyers or
seller’s part, an independent UKC judge of the Sellers choice will be used to
assist in the outcome.
If there is a question at
the time of the adult exam, this determination must be made after the dog has
reached at least 15 months of age.

guarantee the dog will mate, produce offspring, or that the dog will perform
well in the show ring.
Buyer(s) understand that the AKK is a new breed of dog, and that genetic faults
may appear in the breed just as genetic faults appear in long established
breeds. The Buyer(s) agree to assist in tracking of possible genetic faults by
advising the Breeder in writing, of all surgeries, illness, or death of their
AKK. The purpose is for guidance in an attempt to diminish any genetic faults,
rather than allowing them to become more established in the breed.
A certificate of health will be provided by the breeder/seller's veterinarian
prior to placement of the puppy/dog. Seller guarantees that the dog is in good
health, free from any known defects: genetic, structural, communicable, or
temperament in nature. If the puppy is picked in person, the breeder will not
have had an opportunity to provide a health certificate from the veterinarian;
however you will still be required to see your vet within 3 business days.
Even though a Health
Certificate has been issued prior to you receiving the puppy, it is necessary
for you to have a qualified veterinarian of your choice to examine your puppy
within a three (3) business day period. This will assure you of your puppy's
good health and is necessary for your health Guarantee.
This dog/puppy is guaranteed
to be free of any known defects at the time of this contract. If it is
determined by your veterinarian visit, that there are any genetic health defects
the puppy will be exchanged at the earliest possible convenience, with a
comparable puppy, if the puppy is returned in 3 business days to the breeder in
the same condition that it was received (in-tact) and with the documentation
supplied and signed by your veterinarian for the reason of return. If at any
time in the future, any health issues arise, the Breeder/Seller must be notified
within three days of diagnosis and prior to any surgical actions being taken
unless it is emergency care required.

have advised that affected dogs have a mild bleeding disorder due to Factor VII
Deficiency Gene. At this time only one dog in our breed has ever been proven to
have been symptomatic and that specific Alaskan Klee Kai had other health issues

paid for the Alaskan Klee Kai. Seller shall provide notice and allow Buyer 30
days to cure said non-compliance. In the event of Non-compliance the Seller has
the right to request the return of the Alaskan Klee Kai, at the Buyer's expense.
