Breeding Rights & Responsibilities

Purchaser agrees to spay or neuter the puppy between 1 and 2 years of age (per vets recommendation.) Purchaser agrees that his puppy is sold strictly as a pet. Breeding rights can be obtained by paying an additional $400 fee. Buyer agrees to send proof of spay or neutering to the sellers within one month of the procedure. Failure to do so will result in voiding the health warranty and will result in litigation. 

Health

Puppies will be microchipped, vaccinated, and dewormed prior to pick up (see chart in your folder). BUYER agrees to maintain this puppy/dog in good health, provide routine preventative health care including, but not limited to, Vaccinations, Internal and External Parasites, Heartworm preventions, Flea and Tick control, Regular Baths, Grooming and any other preventative medication a Vet feels is needed. Veterinary records must be provided to SELLER if requesting refund or replacement. If any of the above preventative care has not been provided, the heath warranty will be void. 

 

If a fatal cause of which is clearly attributable genetically the dog may, upon signed written diagnosis from the veterinarian(s), be transferred to the SELLER for a refund of the sale price or puppy replacement when one becomes available. Guarantee does not cover any health issues caused by neglect/injury from the BUYER nor third party transport nor does it include illnesses/issues such as colds, allergies, internal/external parasites, ear mites, viral or bacterial viruses, vet checks, accidents, emergencies, hernias, fertility issues, etc. SELLER will not knowingly withhold any information of afflictions from the BUYER. 

 

BUYER agrees to take this dog to a licensed veterinarian of their choice within 4 working days from pick up for a physical examination. If the puppy is determined to be in terminal health or otherwise unfit for sale, BUYER must notify SELLER and provide SELLER the contact information for the licensed veterinarian who made the determination and all records relating to the determination within 48 hours of the determination. BUYER understands and agrees that failure to comply with this provision voids any health guarantee provided under this Agreement or otherwise. Proof must be submitted to SELLER that puppy has been examined within the time specified (4 working days from pick up.)

 

BUYER understands that there is no guarantee or promise that the puppy will be non-shedding and/or hypoallergenic. Of course, that is our desire and we try to breed for this quality, but there is always a possibility that a dog may shed. Sometimes a person is allergic to the dog’s saliva or to some environmental trigger, if so; a Goldendoodle may still trigger allergies. 

 

 

OWNERSHIP AND TRAINING 

BUYER understands that owning a dog is a life-long commitment and agrees to provide appropriate shelter, proper and timely medical attention, proper grooming, and responsible care. This includes, but is not limited to, keeping puppy/dog parasite free, up to date with inoculations, proper nutrition, and fresh water available always. 

 

BUYER understands that puppies may exhibit certain undesirable behaviors such as: nipping, chewing, barking, marking, etc. 

 

BUYER will educate themselves on how to properly train their new puppy and agrees to not use the “no-touch method” nor other negative training method. 

 

Should BUYER not be successful at training these behaviors on their own, BUYER agrees to seek professional help from certified trainers. Ruff Tide Doodles are typically affectionate and friendly and we would not knowingly place a puppy with an unsound temperament with any family. However, no one can guarantee the future temperament of a dog due to environmental influences, improper training or socialization, neglect or abuse. Therefore, Ruff Tide Doodles does not warrant such.  

 

New owners will not enroll the puppy in obedience training classes until all immunizations are completed which is usually between 16-20 weeks of age. 

 

If at any time the BUYER can no longer retain possession of this dog, BUYER must contact the SELLER immediately and be given first right of refusal, at no charge except for applicable transport costs. If the SELLER cannot take back possession of the dog, the BUYER agrees to collaborate with the SELLER and only rehome the dog to a home approved by the SELLER. Under no circumstances will this dog be sold, leased, traded or given away to any pet shop, research laboratory, animal shelter or similar facility. 

 

Payment & Pick Up

Puppy may be reserved with a non-refundable deposit, with the balance due at pick up. 

 

Payment methods accepted: Paypal, Venmo, Cashiers Check, Money Order or Cash. I will not accept PayPal payments if sent as a business (secured) transaction. If you are not comfortable  with the “no fee” option, then you must choose another payment option to send your deposit.  No personal checks will be accepted. 

 

If the SELLER cannot fulfill a puppy reservation, they will refund the deposit, or the BUYER may choose to transfer the deposit onto a future litter.

 

Puppies may be picked up no later than 8 weeks (56 days) after the day of the puppies birth. BUYER may pick up or arrange transport and is responsible for any incurred transportation costs. If puppy is not picked up by 8 weeks of age(56 days), a $35 boarding fee will be applied per day until the puppy is picked up. 

 

Violations

BUYER understands that violating the terms of this contract may result in their being fined up to the maximum allowed in small claims court in the resident county of the SELLER, plus court costs, with ownership rights of the BUYER revoked and immediate return of the dog, at the BUYER’S expense. Fine is charged per violation.
