To the buyers: ____________________________  “Puppy Buyer” for the sum of $_________ in  US Dollars  of which the deposit of $150.00 is non-refundable.

1) In exchange for the above pure bred, pet quality puppy, the above amount will be given the "Puppy/Litter Owner" by the "Puppy Buyer".  "Puppy/Litter Owner" agrees
that the puppy is purebred and registerable with the American Kennel Club. The A.K.C. Dog Registration Application is forwarded at time of delivery of puppy.  We
recommend that you spay or neuter your pet to avoid health problems later in your dogs life.

2) The "Puppy Buyer" has three (3) working days from date of puppy pick-up to take puppy to a veterinarian for an initial check-up. If the puppy is found to have a life-
threatening genetic or health problem and written documentation of the condition is presented from the examining veterinarian, "Puppy/Litter Owner" will place "Puppy
Buyer" on top of "Puppy Waiting List" for next available healthy puppy of same quality and breed according to puppy sex requested, provided puppy and A.K.C. Dog
Registration Application are returned at “Puppy Buyer” expense and puppy has not been hurt or injured. The "Puppy Buyer” agrees to pay transportation costs on
replacement puppy.  If “Puppy Buyer” elects to have genetic problem fixed, if possible, "Puppy/Litter Owner" will reimburse “Puppy Buyer” for expenses up to a
maximum of $100.00 after receiving original bill from licensed veterinarian.  Any additional expenses will be the sole responsibility of “Puppy Buyer”, or puppy may be
returned as stated above.

3) "Puppy Buyer" agrees to have annual veterinarian check-ups, including heart worm check, keep all immunizations current according to A.V.M.A. Guidelines as follows:
"Puppy/Litter Owner" has given "Puppy Vaccination Shot" at 8 weeks of age. Booster shots are required every 4 weeks until the age of 16 weeks.  Puppy diseases can be
very severe on a puppy's health and maintaining this vaccination schedule can prevent these puppy diseases and is required by "Puppy Buyer" as terms of this "Puppy
Contract". I will give you a schedule of vaccinations.  All states require a current Rabies vaccination. Check with your vet for requirements.  "Puppy Buyer" agrees to
properly administer heart worm preventative on a regular basis, if you live where it is required.  Check with your vet. "Puppy Buyer" agrees to provide adequate housing,
confine the puppy in a fenced yard or kennel run, or walk on a leash. Health warranties and guarantees are void if "Puppy Buyer" does not have written documentation
of proper health care as stated in this paragraph. No other health warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied, are made under this contract except those as stated.

4) Each puppy is guaranteed to have sound and stable temperament when they leave our home.  
ALL PUPPIES MUST BE SOCIALIZED AND INTRODUCED TO NEW PEOPLE,
PLACES, DOGS, CATS, ETC TO AVOID BEHAVIORAL ISSUES LATER IN LIFE.
 Puppies need to be properly socialized which include obedience training and that the "Puppy
Buyer" spends a large amount of time socializing your dog daily. The dog is not to be kept chained or tied up, allowed to run loose, teased or otherwise abused. All dogs
should be confined properly in a kennel of their own with adequate shelter and not left to their own devises.

5) If at anytime the buyer cannot keep the dog, it may be placed in a mutually agreed upon home upon Idaho Hunting Dogs approval. I will assist you in finding him/her a
new home also if you want.  If the kennel is informed that the puppy/dog that is under this contract was given away or sold, then the buyer shall pay the kennel a
breach of contract fee of $1,500.00.  

6) "Puppy/Litter Owner" is bound by this agreement to original "Puppy Buyer" only. The State of Idaho, County of Bingham, and City Of Blackfoot will be court of record
for any legal proceedings in reference to this "Puppy Contract" by either "Puppy/Litter Owner" or "Puppy Buyer". Legal proceedings in other jurisdictions in reference to
the "Puppy Contract" are null and void. "Puppy Buyer” agrees to pay "Puppy/Litter Owner's" reasonable legal fees for proceedings related to this "Puppy Contract".

7) No other warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied, are made under this contract except as stated herein.

8)  BREEDING OF THE DOG:
The Buyer agrees not to use the dog for breeding purposes until the dog has reached at least 24 months of age. Buyer also agrees that this dog will not be used for
breeding purposes until cleared by x-rays of hip dysplasia, and until the dog has been cleared for hip defects (OFA or PENN) and eye defects (CERF).  Buyer agrees that a
female dog will not be used for breeding until checked and cleared for Brucellosis  and vaginal infections or diseases. Male dogs will not be used for breeding until
cleared for Brucellosis, and any other infectious canine disease, including those specifically connected to the breeding of dogs.  Buyer agrees that any male or female
dog used for breeding with this dog will also be checked and cleared for the above stated conditions.
