Below is an example of our French Bulldog Puppy Contract.
Johnson House Bullies
French Bulldog Contract / Purchase Agreemen
It will be up to us, the breeder, to decide when the puppy will be ready to go to its new home. Usually, between the age of 8 to 10 weeks depending on vaccine schedule and weight at the time of shipping. We will not, under any circumstances, let the puppy leave before it is ready.
The puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at the time of sale. Your puppy has been checked by our veterinarian and was found to be healthy and free from any genetic defects. We guarantee the puppy to be up to date on vaccinations, deworming, free from Distemper, Parvo, Parainfluenza, and any life-threatening genetic defect.
The puppy will be up to date on shots and worming at the time of pick up. It is very important that you continue the vaccinations, and de-worming as scheduled by your veterinarian. Please do not expose your puppy to public areas and other dogs that are not vaccinated until he/she has completed the entire vaccination schedule - around 16-20 weeks old.
The buyer, at their own expense, should have the puppy examined by a licensed vet within 72 hours of receiving the puppy. If within 72 hours, a licensed vet finds the puppy to be unhealthy or unfit for sale, the puppy may be returned for a full refund - provided the puppy has not been injured or neglected. The veterinarian must provide a written statement deeming the puppy “unhealthy" for purchase. This guarantee does not cover any health issues caused by neglect or injury from the buyer. This guarantee does not include minor illnesses and health issues such as colds, allergies, internal or external parasites, or umbilical hernias. However, the breeder will disclose any known illnesses or health issues prior to the sale.
Documentation must be sent to the breeder within five (5) days for the Health Guarantee to be honored.
The breeder can not assume responsibility for this puppy after 72 hours of the sale. It is the responsibility of the buyer to care for the puppy properly and keep it free from harm. Please remember that your puppy must be treated with great care and protected from danger. The buyer understands that most French Bulldogs cannot swim and all precautions must be taken to ensure the safety of your French Bulldog around bodies of water, swimming pools, etc. We recommend you place your puppy/dog in a life vest if around water. The seller highly recommends the buyer to not place your puppy on public ground (dog parks, doggy daycare, other public grounds) until their immune system is developed. You must visit the veterinarian to ensure your dog receives timely health checkups. The failure of the buyer to provide the puppy with timely vaccinations, heartworm medication, or regular veterinary care will void this Health Guarantee. The breeder assumes no responsibility for any medical expenses incurred after the sale.
Purchasers should follow a recommended nutritional program, including feeding only dog foods, and vitamin supplements recommended by the breeder.
Our Health Guarantee
The breeder gives a one (1) year guarantee against any congenital defects of the puppy. If this should occur the puppy will be returned to the breeder, and the buyer will receive a replacement puppy of equivalent value. We are unable to guarantee the color or size of the puppy in this situation. If within one (1) year from the date of purchase the puppy is found and certified by two (2) duly licensed doctors of veterinary medicine (DVMs) of buyers choosing to have a congenital or hereditary life-threatening condition that adversely affects the health of the dog, and if the breeder is notified within five (5) business days of the first veterinarian's determination, the breeder will provide a replacement puppy of equivalent value. Puppies bred before one year of age will void this contract and Health Guarantee.
The breeder reserves the right to obtain a third opinion of breeders choosing to determine the congenital or hereditary life-threatening condition. All laboratory verification must be done by a licensed DVM. The breeder assumes no responsibility for any medical expenses incurred after the sale. If the buyer declines any replacement puppy, then the breeder shall be under no further obligation, and it shall be deemed that the buyer has released the breeder from any, and all further claims, and waived any rights to pursue any claims against the breeder.
During this time, unless otherwise required by law, this Health Guarantee does not cover what in the French Bulldog breed is considered normal: cherry eye, entropion or ectropion, loose hips or knees, allergies, soft palate issues, trachea issues, stenotic nares, inverted tails, skin allergies, fertility issues, parasitic, fungal or bacterial infection, respiratory infection, undescended testicles, localized Demodex mange, overheating/heat stroke, luxating patellas, skin issues, etc. Coccidiosis and kennel cough is also not covered in this contract, both of which can be common in puppies. Coccidiosis is a parasite that is commonly found in puppies, kennel cough is self-limiting (like the common cold), full recovery is expected with medication. A puppy that has died from anesthesia because of being put under surgery etc. is not covered in this contract. Putting a French Bulldog under requires a skilled and knowledgeable veterinarian and all necessary precautions to be in place. Any physical problem, which is or could be caused by accident, injury, neglect, or poor diet is also not covered in this contract.
The value of the puppy for purposes of this Health Guarantee is limited to the purchase price of the puppy and does not include taxes, shipping, health certificate, veterinarian costs, shipping crate, or any additional costs, or expenses incurred or asserted by the buyer. This Health Guarantee is non-transferable.
The breeder makes all transportation arrangements. Sometimes travel arrangements are delayed due to temperature restrictions, weather, mechanical failure, and other unforeseen events. The breeder shall not be liable directly or indirectly for delays that may cause inconvenience or financial loss, nor shall the delay be cause for cancellation. The breeder will collect all shipping fees from the purchaser at the time of purchase if the purchaser requests shipping arrangements be made. The seller does not warranty pups while being shipped since the seller does not have control over their care/handling during transport. The seller does their best to research reputable, trusted companies to care for our pets and yours while in transport.
Registered & Pet Home
Johnson House Bullies agrees to register the puppy with an appropriate registry and will forward the registration paperwork to the buyer once received from the registry. The buyer acknowledges that due to factors that are out of the seller's control sometimes the delivery of paperwork can be delayed.
Puppies sold with limited registration or pet home will have no breeding rights. These puppies can not be bred for any reason and all will violate this agreement. If you choose to spay or neuter your puppy we recommend that it be done after one year of age. The buyer cannot register this puppy/dog or unauthorized offspring with any other registry. Breeding the dog and registering puppies under any dog registry will void the warranty portion of this contract.
If for any reason the buyer is unable to keep the puppy, the buyer agrees to return the puppy to Johnson House Bullies. Under no circumstance may the dog be surrendered to any animal shelter. If the puppy is returned within the first 30 days, only half of the purchase price will be refunded after the puppy has been placed in his/her new home. The other half will cover the cost of re-advertisement and keeping the puppy current on vaccinations and worming until the puppy is placed in his/her new home. If the puppy is returned after 30 days no money will be refunded.
The buyer certifies that they are not acting as an agent for another individual in the purchase of this puppy, and will not sell this puppy to any mass-producing kennel or business.
Johnson House Bullies reserves the right to include our kennel name on all puppy registration paperwork. When you register your puppy Johnson House Bullies’ name must be kept on all registration paperwork.
