Contract for Buying a Souls’ Ease Goldendoodle Puppy

 Conditions of Sale

Seller guarantees that at the time of delivery, the dog has been checked by a licensed Vet and is in good health. Should dog be found to be in poor health of a serious nature that is diagnosed as permanently life altering by a veterinarian, Seller will provide Buyer a full refund of the purchase price of dog only after dog is returned to Seller at Buyer’s expense.

Souls’ Ease Goldendoodle puppies are sold as pets only with no breeding privileges.  Any dog not spayed or neutered will cancel health guarantee.  Any unauthorized breeding will result in confiscation of the dog, any puppies and a $30,000 fine.  All legal proceedings will be held in Oconee County SC, and all court costs will be the responsibility of the buyer.

I do not ship my puppies. They have had constant loving human interaction and a charmed puppyhood, I do not want them traumatized by the delivery process. You will either need to come pick them up at my kennel in Upstate SC, or arrange to meet with me (up to 4 hours from upstate SC for $100).

The Buyer has three (3) business days from the time of receipt of dog to have dog examined by a licensed veterinarian. Any request to return the dog to the Seller for a full refund must be made within this time period and may only be requested should the dog be found to have a health issue of such serious nature that the quality of life of the dog will be shortened or seriously altered. Your deposit will not be refunded.

The breeder has taken all reasonable care to ensure that all pups produced are as healthy as possible. Cancers, foreign body ingestion, behavioral issues, accidents, ear infections and UTIs are considered normal costs and risks of pet ownership.

We do not guarantee size, color, appearance, hypoallergenic quality, or non-shedding quality. This warranty does not cover bite, certain looks, coat type or temperament.

Warranty will be terminated immediately if dog is not examined within the allotted time.

A warranty against all serious life altering genetic disease is provided for two years after the date of sale. Should a genetic disease be discovered during this time that will greatly shorten the life of, or greatly alter the quality of life of dog, Seller will reimburse Buyer the veterinary costs up to the purchase price of the dog, if dog is kept by Buyer.

Two independent veterinary examinations and reviews must be provided to Seller documenting the genetic health issue. Reimbursement of veterinary fees is provided to Buyer once copies of the medical reports are received by Seller. Reports must state the treatments provided, and fees for the treatments. The Seller also reserves the right to obtain a 3rd opinion from her own vet. Both vets must agree that the problem is genetic.

Hip dysplasia is also covered up to two years of age. This warranty will be terminated should dog be allowed to become overweight resulting in overstressed joints at any point during the warranty period.
