PURCHASING AGREEMENT FOR PET / COMPANION DOG       EXAMPLE ONLY
            
The following is an agreement between TAGETARL KENNELS (hereafter referred to as TK) and Buyer as identified below.
                          This agreement applies to all dogs purchased as pets/companions, working dogs, trialling/agility dogs, guard dogs.


Pricing:
Pricing varies per litter and requirements plus any additional charges for transport (shipping) or kennelling a puppy past/over the age of 8 weeks or part their of. We are able to arrange transportation of puppy/dog at the purchaser's expense. Clients in the immediate area may collect their puppy/dog directly from TK by prior arrangement. An exact purchase price and an approximate cost for transport will be provided at the time of negotiation.

Purchasing Agreement: a $200 non-refundable deposit will hold the puppy/dog identified below, along with a completed ORDER FORM. If the puppy/dog is not paid for and collected or transported within a reasonable time, that has been agreed to by both parties, TK has the right to keep, sell or re-home said puppy/dog.

Collection or transport of puppy/dog will only be possible once the purchase price, transport (if applicable) and any other costs have been paid in FULL.
TK will not allow a puppy/dog to leave their premises with a part payment of moneys due or outstanding. Following full payment of puppy/dog, new owner will receive a signed bill of sale, puppy care information manual (hard copy or e-mail) and vaccination card signed by a veterinarian. If none of these documents are offered to the client at the negotiation time then the dog remains the property of TK. If a dog is placed with a client for a trial period of time (trial periods only apply to dogs over the age of 6 months), client does not have ownership of dog at this time.

Sale Age: Puppies will be a minimum of eight (8) weeks of age, will have one C3 vaccination and a veterinary examination. Puppy will be wormed and completely weaned from it's dam (mother) and on solid food. Buyer will be provided with detailed care information at the time of collection/transportation.

Transport/Shipping: Is at the buyer's expense. Puppies/dogs will only be shipped in airline approved crates. TK can arrange transport quotes and bookings. TK can make payment on buyer's behalf once money for shipping has been received from the buyer. TK assumes no responsibility for loss or injury to dog during the shipping process as we have no control over this once the dog has been delivered to the airport. However, we have sent many dogs by airline and have only had one bad experience of a puppy becoming de-hydrated due to airport staff negligence.

Health Guarantee: TK guarantees that to the best of our knowledge, this puppy/dog is in good health. TK guarantees that this puppy/dog can be returned at client's expense within five (5) days of purchase for any health problems (parasites not included) and the purchase price will be refunded. At no other time will purchase price be refunded. The buyer guarantees to take the puppy/dog to a veterinarian during the five (5) day period for a health examination and to advise TK of any problems immediately.

If a puppy is diagnosed after a five (5) day period with a life threatening congenital hereditary defect, the puppy can be returned at the buyer's expense to
TK and replaced with another puppy of equal value transported at the buyer's expense when one becomes available. A written and signed statement in detail of the defect from the veterinarian, who diagnosed the problem, must precede the return of the puppy. If a puppy dies, a full autopsy/necropsy at the buyer's expense must be performed to diagnose the problem. Full results must be sent to TK.  At no time will TK replace a puppy that had been living in a new home for more than two (2) months. This provides plenty of time for any life-threatening congenital defects to appear. Buyer agrees that after purchase TK assumes no responsibility for expenses of any kind.

Steralisation (de-sexing): Buyer agrees that a said puppy/dog purchased from TK was specifically purchased as a pet or working/guard dog and therefore is NOT to be used for breeding. Buyer agrees to steralise said puppy by six (6) months of age. In the case of an older puppy/dog within sixty (60) days of purchase. TK guarantees that the Limited ANKC registration papers for said puppy will be furnished to the buyer once written proof from a licenced veterinarian stating that dog has been steralised is received.

Rehoming to a third party: Buyer agrees that puppy/dog will not be sold/placed by them with a new owner without prior knowledge and written approval of TK. If approved, new owner will also be required to sign TK pet agreement. If said puppy/dog is not already steralised (de-sexed) by original owner then new owner will have no more than sisty (60) days to provide proof that the dog has been de-sexed to TK. This stipulation is to avoid people unknown to TK ending up with one of our dogs. Or to prevent people TK have deemed 'unsuitable' obtaining a dog bred by TK through deception. In layman's terms, to prevent someone 'going through the back door' and obtaining our bloodlines without our knowledge or approval.

Buyer's responsibility for the welfare of puppy/dog: The buyer agrees to provide said puppy/dog with the best possible health care and to protect and care for it throughout its entire life. If for any reason in the life of this dog a need comes that the buyer must find another home for it, buyer will offer TK first option of return of dog, at no cost to TK. The buyer guarantees that at no time will this dog be turned over to the pound, RSPCA or rescue. There is no excuse for this to happen. It is the responsibility of the buyer to finish what we have started. These are good dogs, raised with love and care for good people.

TK endeavours to provide the buyer with the best possible dog within our ability. The outcome of this puppy depends on you the buyer. This dog can only be as good as the environment and training provided by you. We do want to know how your dog goes throughout its lifetime. TK has never talked someone into buying one of our dogs. We ask you to agree to the terms outline above if you plan to purchase one of our dogs. If you can not for any reason, then we ask you to leave the dog where it is in our care. This contract constitutes a show of good faith and an offer to purchase. Buyer understands that said puppy remains the property of TK until such time as it has been fully paid for and shipped to or collected by the buyer. At any time and for any reason prior to this, TK can rescind this offer to purchase if they deem either the puppy or buyer to be unsuitable for whatever reason which may not be disclosed. If this occurs said puppy will no-longer be available to this buyer. As stated in the Trade Practices Act, "Deposit does not constitute nor guarantee purchase." TK reserves the right to cancel this agreement and retain or sell said puppy up until such time as the puppy leaves their care. Buyer acknowledges that TK reserves the right to confiscate from buyer or new owner at any time in the future if any conditions or this contract are breeched.
