________ Spay & Neuter Agreement: This puppy is being sold as a pet and companion and not for breeding purposes. The Buyer agrees to spay/neuter their puppy no later than 12 months of age. The buyer also affirms that their purchase is for a “pet home” only and not for breeding purposes. If the purchased puppy is used to produce a litter, the Breeder will be entitled to be compensated for breach of contract. The BUYER then agrees to pay the BREEDER an additional $1000 above the purchase price of the original puppy and $1250 per puppy that is sold from the whelping. The general health guarantee as well as the genetic guarantee becomes void if the spay/neuter contract is violated. This is meant to protect our reputation and bloodline.

Puppies Health: Dreamydoodles NW states that this puppy is in good health at the time of pick-up or delivery. If this puppy is found to have a life-threatening illness diagnosed by a vet within 3 days from the date of purchase, the BUYER may return this puppy to Dreamydoodles NW at the BUYER’S expense to receive a full refund or a replacement puppy if one is available. The Seller makes no guarantees for coat, color, size or temperament of this Puppy.

Proof of examination and any diagnosis must be provided to the BREEDER within 7 days after diagnosis. The BREEDER reserves the right to a second veterinary opinion. Dreamydoodles NW should be contacted immediately with the name and number of the vet responsible for performing the exam. The vet will also need to provide in writing all of the results and a formal diagnosis of the genetic disease or hereditary defect.

Dreamydoodles NW guarantees the Puppy is free of hereditary defects to the best of our knowledge and any known health issues will be disclosed before purchase. A Warranty is provided for two (2) years after the birthdate of this Puppy for any hereditary debilitating disease that would cause the dog to lose quality of life before the age of five (5). Written proof must be provided by an approved Licensed Veterinarian. The Seller would pay Veterinary expenses up to half the purchase price. Proof of expenses and payments to a Licensed Veterinarian must be provided.

This contract does not cover the following: viral illnesses, parasites, infections, improper bites, viral giardia or coccidiosis or kennel cough. It also does not cover illnesses due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals, stress related issues, behavioral issues, physical injuries and/or illnesses which may have occurred and/or contracted during or after transport to the buyer.

The BREEDER promises to a make the BUYER aware of any and all known health issues before the purchase of this puppy. The Breeder is not liable for any accident or injury of the animal once it leaves Dreamydoodles NW’s premises. Once the puppy leaves our care, we have very little control over how the puppy is handled, where the puppy is taken or what the puppy is exposed to.

Vaccinations and Dewormer:

Puppy will be due for their next vaccine and deworming in 3-4 wks (from pick-up date) at 11-12 wks.

The Breeder assures that this puppy has received at least one set of vaccinations – which covers Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Para-influenza and Parvovirus. Dreamydoodles NW worms our puppies with Nemex 2 (pyrantel pamoate) at 2, 4 wks and Safe-Guard (Fenbendazole) at 6, 8 weeks.

Buyer agrees not to take this Mini Aussiedoodle Puppy to public places, such as the pet store or dog park until the Puppy has had ALL of his/her vaccinations, usually after 16 weeks of age. The puppy will not have all of its immunities until then. There are many viruses, such as Parvovirus that are potentially fatal if contracted.

Hips and Elbows:

A Warranty for Hip Dysplasia is provided for two (2) years after the birthdate of this Puppy. OFA or Penn HIP results must be provided showing Hip Dysplasia. All testing to be done at Buyer’s expense. If it is determined that the Hip Dysplasia is severe enough to curtail the quality of life of the Puppy, then the Seller will pay Veterinary expenses up to half the purchase price.

If this puppy is diagnosed with hip dysplasia then official written documentation including films and any and all veterinary reports associated with the hip dysplasia diagnosis from the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) or PennHIP of bilateral dysplasia before any refund will be provided. We will not honor a written statement or exams from your licensed vet, it must be documented by OFA or PennHIP and the results must be sent to our vet. If your puppy is diagnosed by PennHIP or OFA to have dysplasia, we do NOT require the puppy be returned to us. If dysplasia is confirmed, buyer will be refunded ½ the total purchase price (excluding any/all additional expenses travel, shipping, food, vet supplies, and Veterinarian costs).

Due to the environmental causes of this disorder, genetics cannot be completely blamed for its development. Please feed your puppy a high-quality dog food like Lifes Abundance dog food which is what we feed and recommend. 

The goal is to avoid rapid growth during their early development.  Do not take your puppy on long jogs or strenuous exercise during the developmental stages (first year), put down rugs on hardwood floors to prevent slipping while playing which can also injure their growing hips/joints.

General Health: The BUYER agrees to maintain this puppy/dog in good health, provide routine preventative health care, including but not limited to, inoculations, internal and external parasites, and preventative medications. BUYER agrees to provide fresh water and proper quality food (preferably grain free) in the correct amounts.

If any of the above preventative care has not been provided, health warranty will be rendered null and void.

Rehoming: If for any reason, you are unable to care for your puppy or adult dog – PLEASE contact us immediately. We will assist in relocating your puppy into a new ‘approved’ home. Although we will not reimburse you for the original purchase price of the puppy/dog – we guarantee to assist you in placing them into a new loving home. We would provide you with any funds received from that adoption. We also ask if you decide to re-home this puppy on your own that you provide us with the new owners contact information (name, address and phone number). 

Compensation for a returned puppy is as follows; –Up to 6 months of age, we will attempt to sell the puppy for full price. We will refund the full amount we sell the puppy for (this amount will depend on the current market value and/or condition of the puppy), minus the $300 non-refundable deposit and any actual expenses we may personally incur including, but not limited to, vet appointments, vaccinations, flea and tick preventative, heartworm preventative, grooming, food, training, toys and bedding. This will depend on how long we have the puppy. At 6 months to 1 year of age, we will attempt to sell the puppy for half of the original full price. Over 1 year of age, we will make the decision if we will sell the puppy/dog or re-home the puppy/dog at no charge. 

Important Notes

Protecting your puppy: Puppies are given their 1st puppy shot with us, this does not mean they’re immune to the diseases they’ve been vaccinated against yet, please check with your Vet and follow up on all boosters before taking your puppy to meet the general public including the Veterinarian’s Office, the Dog Groomers, Petco, PetSmart, Home depot (all dog friendly stores), no camping at public lakes and parks. You need to avoid basically any high traffic dog areas.

Vets offices can actually be one of the most dangerous places to take a newly vaccinated puppy, take your puppy in a carrier to the vets or keep them in your arms for the entire visit. They should go from your arms to the examine table and then back into your arms again. Do not allow them to roam freely on the office floors or go potty on the grass outside.  

Don’t allow other clients at the vets to handle your puppy, this may seem unfriendly but it’s important. 

Do not allow your puppy to roam your home unsupervised unless you have thoroughly puppy proofed EVERYTHING. If your puppy got it. It’s your fault! Puppies do not know better yet. So, pick-up anything you don’t want tiny teeth marks in. Put up, away or hide your charger, power cords, plants, purses, shoes headphones etc. We recommend a crate, a playpen or a gated off “puppy area” when you cannot supervise your puppy for the first month. 

Stress & First Days Home: The stress of transitioning to a new home can bring on signs of illness. Although usually temporary, these signs still need to be treated with attention, especially diarrhea. Other minor signs of stress include heavy panting mostly only the first night, loss of appetite, shyness, sleeping alot etc. Please do not be overly concerned but notify me with any questions, especially if these symptoms seem to last longer than 24-48 hours or are severe (uncommon).

Puppy Updates: Your feedback is very important to us especially in regards to adult size, shedding, temperament and train-ability. Family feedback helps us to make future breeding decisions and also to better predict how our future litters will develop as adults. Now and then we would love pictures updates and any helpful information as your puppy develops.

Our puppies and adults are fed the Lifes Abundance – All Life Stages dog food as well as the Nuvet vitamins. We recommend keeping your puppy on this formula or switching to the Lifes Abundance – Large Breed Puppy food (standard size puppies) or the Small/Medium Puppy Food (mini size puppies). Switching foods can cause stomach upset and diarrhea so if you do decide to switch do it gradually. 

We will be here day or night to answer any questions you might have for the life of your dog. 

Enjoy your Dreamydoodles puppy; they will change your life in many ways for the better and we can actually promise you that.

The BUYERS agreements will continue for the duration of this dog’s life and the BREEDER will have the right to enforce these agreements. Buyer acknowledges by their signature that he or she has read and reviewed the terms of this Purchase Agreement. Buyer agrees and accepts all terms of contract. No other Guarantees have been made.
