Darlin' Dachshunds Puppy Contract

Budd and Rachel Schoeneberg


Darlin’ Dachshunds guarantees this puppy for 72 hours from the time of purchase against any health disorders. If the puppy is not examined by a vet of the buyer's choice within 72 hours of purchase (and vet receipt must be kept in puppy's folder), this contract is null and void. No other guarantee is given.

Darlin’ Dachshunds also guarantees this puppy to be free of Genetic Defects that make the puppy not suitable for the purpose of a *family pet*--that reduces the quality of, or ends the life of the puppy--until it reaches one year of age. Buyer understands that the following slight genetic defects are not considered serious or life threatening and therefore are not covered: umbilical hernia, undescended testicle, underbite or overbite. Buyer understands that any and all guarantees expire one year from the date of birth.

We do not guarantee against Parvo, Corona, Coccidiosis or Giardia after 72 hours of purchase.  For the purposes of this agreement, once the puppy leaves the seller's premises, it is under the buyer's control and the seller is no longer responsible for any veterinary bills. If any treatment is rendered it is at the expense of the buyer.

The seller can not be held responsible for: size, weight, coat texture, coat length, positioning of ears, bite, color of coat and temperament.

If your puppy is very sick or has a congenital defect found by your vet, you will return him/her to the kennel (at buyers expense) with the registration papers and you must obtain a written statement from your vet, on office stationary and signed by him/her for our records, stating health risk and to include a description of the symptoms supporting his/her opinion to validate this guarantee. Any vet bills incurred to diagnose or repair a problem will be the responsibility of the buyer unless arrangements have been made or approved prior to treatment. Failure to do this will cause this contract to be null & void.  If you qualify for a replacement, you can choose a new puppy of equal value if one is available. You will be responsible for the shipping of a new puppy. We will not be held responsible for further costs.

Original puppy must be returned within 24 hours along with all the paper work. (You agree to fill out all necessary forms to return ownership of puppy to breeder.)

This written agreement is a binding contract entered into the State of Texas and is the entire agreement between the buyer and seller concerning the health conditions or loss of this puppy.
