If the dog covered by this contract is seized by any of the aforementioned agencies because of neglect or abuse by the registered owner, ownership and custody of the dog automatically reverts to the Seller with no compensation to the Buyer and the dog may be recovered by the Seller from said agency.

OWNERSHIP:       Possession of said dog does not translate into ownership until all of the conditions of this contract are met.

DEFINITIONS:

Dog, as used herein, is a generic term and may refer to either a male or female animal of any age.

LEGAL ACTION: Any legal action arising out of this contract in regard to the said Dog, shall take place within the Sellers jurisdiction.

THE BUYER[S] AGREES AS FOLLOWS:

1]       The Buyer will provide a safe place out of doors where the dog may exercise without threat of harm from other dogs, other people, or other dangers such as traffic.  The area is to be such that it provides the dog with shade and protection in the summer and shelter and protection in the winter months

2]       The Buyer will at all times throughout the dog’s life provide the dog with the proper exercise, diet, housing and shade, and properly maintain the dog for its size and weight.

3]       The Buyer shall provide and is responsible for the cost of:

  • an initial veterinary checkup within the first 7 days of receiving the dog to confirm that it was received in good health,
  • all vaccinations required subsequent to the initial vaccination shots, or the vaccinations received on the breeder’s property which are appropriate for the dogs age;

In any of these circumstances the terms of the Return Policy will then be implemented. 

5]       THAT THE SELLER HAS ADVISED THE BUYER THAT NEWFOUNDLAND PUPPIES GROW AT LEAST TO TWO [2] YEARS OF AGE.  Extreme care must be taken to ensure that a pup under two [2] years of age is not allowed to jump from any heights without assistance (eg. grooming table, vehicle).  This also refers to work such as carting as this could cause permanent and irreversible damage to growing joints and will void all structure guarantees.  CHILDREN SHOULD NOT RIDE ON A NEWFOUNDLAND AT ANY TIME.

6]       Further, the Buyer agrees that the animal covered by this contract shall not be bred before 1.5 years of age.

1]       The Seller guarantees that the said dog is purebred and is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club (C.K.C.).  It should be noted that registration papers can sometimes be delayed by processing with the C.K.C., but they will be forwarded to the Buyer according to availability.  THERE IS NO EXTRA CHARGE TO THE BUYER FOR THE REGISTRATION PAPERS.

2]       Said dog has had all the appropriate inoculations, worming and veterinary checkups for a dog of its age, as per the health record supplied with the other materials given to the  buyer at the time of purchase.

3] a]   The Seller guarantees the said dog to be in good health and free from all communicable disease for seven(7) days after leaving the Seller’s premises.  If said dog is found to have a communicable disease within [7] days, said dog must be returned to Seller along with all registration documents releasing ownership; and Seller agrees to replace said dog with another of equal value when one is available or to refund the purchase price less deposit.

Fees for the autopsy report are the Buyers responsibility.  If death is due to causes other than a hereditary defect the Seller assumes no financial responsibility to the Buyer.

It shall be at the Seller’s discretion whether this dog shall be replaced or a monetary compensation (purchase price less deposit) be made.  The replacement or refund shall be made within twenty-four months of the date of return or euthanasia of the dog.
