Companion Puppy Contract
This contract is in effect to protect the Alaskan Klee Kai Dog/Puppy above all
else. The AKK and its health and welfare are above both the seller and the buyer
in importance. This contract serves to insure that end purpose.
Above all else, the Buyer(s) promise to love and be proud of their Alaskan Klee
Kai, and to care for and protect it. Therefore, before I transfer ownership of
any Alaskan Klee Kai, I will be reasonably confident that the prospective
owner(s) will be responsible and loving owner(s).
It is hereby understood and agreed that the above named
parties have entered into an Ownership Purchase Contract, Agreement and Bill of
Sale for the above identified Alaskan Klee Kai. Buyer(s) understand that within
a single litter, the Alaskan Klee Kai may produce all three sizes, and all
variances in coats and quality, therefore the Breeder/Seller CANNOT guarantee
the ADULT SIZE, QUALITY, or APPEARANCE of this Alaskan Klee Kai.
Sometimes between puppyhood and adulthood, changes in
the dog might occur that affect the potential breeding/show quality of your
young adult. The best puppies could grow up to have disqualifications,
imperfections, or be medically, structurally or temperamentally defective. This
is something that cannot be helped and is not usuallt the fault of the breeder
or the owner.
The Buyer(s) agree that this Alaskan Klee Kai and all other animals residing
with the buyer(s) will be treated in a humane manner. All immunizations will be
kept current under the guidance of a qualified veterinarian, the animal will be
licensed where required by law, and proper training will be given to prevent the
development of personality traits which are normally considered undesirable. A
microchip placed in your Alaskan Klee Kai and will need to be registered at
http://www.microchipidsystems.com/register/. The breeder will be listed
as the 2nd contact so that if the dog is ever displaced and the buyer
is unable to be located, then we as breeders will be and can have the dog sent
back to us until you can be located. Buyer(s) further agree that this Alaskan
Klee Kai will be kept under control and will not be allowed to run loose/ at
The buyer(s) agree that if, at any time, they are no longer able, or desire to
care for, keep or give love and attention this AKK deserves, the breeder/seller
of this contract must be notified and arrangements made to return the puppy or
dog to the breeder unless other arrangements are agreed upon by the breeder. The
breeder/seller may have the option to have the dog returned at the buyer's
expense. If it is determined the dog is not suitable for re-sale for any reason,
the Breeder/Seller or buyer may choose to retain said dog in their kennel for
the life of the animal, or euthanize the animal if it is decided that
euthanizing the dog would be the most humane thing to do. I must be responsible
for all of the dogs I breed for the life of the animal.
The buyer(s) agree to AT ALL TIMES notify the
Breeder/Seller of any changes to Name, address, telephone number and/or e-mail
address, within 30 days for the life of the puppy/dog. Failure to do so is
considered a violation of this agreement and could cause the breeder to require
the dog to be surrendered at no cost to the breeder.
It is further agreed that the registered name of this Alaskan Klee Kai will have
the Prefix "HOT", and that this name will be permanently registered with UKC.
The buyer will have the right of registering the official name with UKC,
retaining the prefix "HOT" and to choose the call name of the animal.
The buyer(s) agree that this AKK is being purchased as a pet and breeding will
not be done. The puppy will need to be altered.
Special Arrangements Agreed Upon For This Transaction
This Alaskan Klee Kai is being sold as a companion. There are no physical or
health defects that are known at this time.
The agreed upon purchase price prior to transporting is ____.00 with an
additional transportation fee of ___.00. Once Payment has been made, if it is
to be returned for any reason, to include buyers’ remorse, before the puppy has
been transported, the buyer understands that it could take up to 30 days for
payment to be mailed back as a certified bank check, no matter how the payment
was originally made.
Co-ownership on the registration papers will be maintained with the breeder
until the dog is altered.
The breeder requires monthly reports of health and welfare until the puppy is at
least 1 year old, and then a quarterly report will be allowed.
"Show Quality", "Breeding Quality" and "Companion Quality" are terms that merely
mean the Alaskan Klee Kai does or does not meet the requirements for the
Breeding Program, and for showing in any and all AKK approved shows. These terms
do NOT 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.
Certificate of Health
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. Occasionally a puppy picked up in person will not have
had the above listed health certificate completed. In the event of that that
being the case, it is still the buyers’ responsibility to have a health check by
their own veterinarian within three 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 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.
If the Buyer(s) default, have intentionally falsified information, or express
non-compliance of ANY PORTION of this contract, that act will result in
forfeiture of this AKK as well as the monies paid and received. The dog must be
returned immediately at the buyers expense. Should there be a disagreement of
any kind to uphold this contract, both Buyer(s) and Seller(s) agree to have an
independent party assist in the determination of rightful results, which must be
a member in good standing of UAKKA, prior to beginning any litigation. At any
time, the Seller/Breeder's liability is limited to the replacement of the puppy
or the cash purchase price of the dog in question, not including transportation
costs, at the Breeders/Sellers sole discretion. Any litigation resulting from
the upholding of this contract will be filed and litigated in Bexar County Texas
where this contract is issued and funds deemed received.
