Deposit amount:__________________ paid on:__________________________

Buyer understands that the deposit, and all monies paid, are NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-TRANSFERABLE, unless the puppy dies in my care.
Buyer understands if the balance is not paid by the due date, he/she forfeits the deposit, and all monies paid toward the puppy, and the seller will place the puppy back up for sale.
Buyer understands and agrees that any puppy purchased with full AKC registration must have Allure’s as the prefix to their AKC registered name.
If the puppy is sold with full AKC registration, seller guarantees AKC paperwork on said puppy within 30 days of sale, if not provided at time of sale.
If the puppy is sold as a pet, with limited AKC registration, buyer agrees to have the puppy spayed/neutered before 12 months of age, and provide the seller with proof, in order to receive limited AKC registration. If the puppy is not spayed/neutered before 12 months of age, or the buyer fails to provide the seller with proof, no AKC papers will be provided and the health guarantee is void.
If the puppy cannot be spayed/neutered before 12 months of age for health reasons, buyer must provide the seller with a letter from a licensed veterinarian explaining why, and an approximate time when the puppy can be spayed/neutered. Once the puppy has been spayed/neutered, and the buyer provides the seller with proof, AKC paperwork will be provided within 30 days.
If the puppy is sold as a pet, under a spay/neuter agreement, no AKC paperwork will be provided.
Buyer understands and agrees that any puppy sold as a pet, with or without limited AKC registration, is not to be bred, and must be spayed/neutered before 12 months of age. If a puppy sold as a pet is bred, intentionally or accidentally, this is considered a breach of contract and the health guarantee is void. Again, no AKC paperwork will be provided.
Buyer understands that if any disputes arise that cannot be resolved between the buyer and seller, any legal proceedings are to take place in the jurisdiction of the seller.

Health Guarantee & Sales Contract continued
Seller warrants the following:
Puppy is in sound health at time of sale, and should be inspected by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of arrival. Not having the puppy examined within this time period voids the health guarantee. Seller guarantees the puppy to be free of Parvo and/or Distemper for a period of 5 days. If the puppy is found to have either/or, the buyer is to contact the seller within 24 hours of this finding. Not doing so will null/void the health guarantee. Seller has the option of asking for return of the puppy, and if requested, buyer must return puppy at his/her expense within 48 hours. Seller will replace said puppy upon receiving signed vet statement of such findings, and after return of all original paperwork, signed back over to the seller. Seller will replace said puppy when one of equal value becomes available. If buyer chooses not to return the puppy, the buyer takes all responsibility in the care of the puppy and/or all vet expenses. ALL SHIPPING EXPENSES AND VET BILLS INCURRED ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER!
This puppy is also guaranteed for one year against congenital defects that will affect the quality of life of the puppy as a pet. If a defect is found within one year of contract date, buyer must notify seller as soon as possible, and provide seller with signed vet statement, return the animal within 7 days, and sign over all original paperwork to seller. Seller has the right to ask for a second opinion from another licensed veterinarian, whose opinion will take precedence over the first veterinarian. If buyer chooses to keep the dog at his/her own expense, buyer takes all responsibility in the care of the dog, and/or vet expenses. Seller can choose to give buyer a partial refund, or discount on another puppy, but is not obligated to do so, if buyer chooses to keep said puppy. If buyer returns the puppy with all said documents, he/she will receive replacement puppy of equal value when one becomes available. AGAIN, ALL SHIPPING EXPENSES AND VET BILLS INCURRED ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER!
Should the puppy pass away, within one year of contract date and/or while the health guarantee is valid, the buyer must have a necropsy done at his/her expense, by a licensed veterinarian, to determine the cause of death. The seller will only replace a puppy if the cause of death is determined to be a congenital defect. Under no circumstances will the seller replace a puppy who passes away from hypoglycemia, negligence, or an accident. If the buyer chooses not to have a necropsy done, the health guarantee is void, and the seller will not offer a replacement puppy or a refund.
Seller does not warrant against the following:
Hypoglycemia- under no circumstances is the seller responsible for loss or death due to hypoglycemia.
Molera- It is acceptable for a Chihuahua to have a molera (open fontanelle) and it is not considered a flaw.
Skin conditions, alopecia or hair loss
Hernias (of any kind)
Testicles (not descending)
Ear leather (if the ears do not stand)
Teeth (retained teeth, overbite or underbite)
Luxating Patellas- In the event that the puppy develops this condition, it's the buyers responsibility to have the puppy treated at his/her own expense.
Coccidia/Giardia- Many puppies are prone to outbreak of either coccidia and/or giardia under stressful circumstances. The symptoms can arise in a 12 hour period, and can not always be prevented by the seller, because there are no signs until the puppy is stressed, and their immune system drops. All precautions have been made, but the buyer should take the puppy to the vet immediately if the puppy develops unusual stool, begins vomiting, or has loss of appetite.
Collapsing Trachea- This is a common thing in Chihuahuas when they get excited, and has not been found to impose a health risk, but can be somewhat annoying to some people.
There is no guarantee on SIZE, COLOR, COAT, BITE or BREED ABILITY OF THIS PUPPY.
Buyer warrants that he/she will not knowingly offer this puppy/dog, or any of it's offspring to brokers, pet shops, or puppy mills. If buyer is found to be selling the dog, or puppies in such a way, buyer will incur a $1,000 penalty for each puppy found to be sold in this way.
If for any reason the buyer cannot keep this puppy, buyer agrees to return the puppy to the seller at his/her expense, and no refund will be issued. Under no circumstances will this puppy/dog ever be surrendered to a shelter or put to sleep without first consenting with the seller.
There are no other guarantees/warranties given, expressed or written, other than those stated in the above contract. Any changes must be made on paper, and signed by both parties.
I have read, understand, and agree to the above terms and conditions:
