PUPPY PURCHASE CONTRACT
This contract is hereby being entered into between Matt Ivy (IVY BORDEAUX), hereinafter collectively referred to as Seller, and _______________________________________________, Buyer(s), to reflect the sale of a Show-Quality Dogue De Bordeaux Puppy. Any subsequent modifications of this contract will be subordinate to this original document and all guarantees are valid for three years from the date of birth of this puppy. In consideration for the purchase price of $_____ dollars, the Seller agrees to transfer in full ownership, subject to the Buyer’s Duty section below, a show-quality male/female Dogue De Bordeaux puppy to Buyer upon the signing of this contract. For identification purposes, Seller acknowledges that this puppy was sired and whelped by the following dogues on the ______ day of _________:
Sire’s AKC Registration Number:

Dam’s AKC Registration Number:
The following guarantees apply only to the puppy being purchased with this transaction and are null and void to subsequent purchasers of this puppy. Guarantees are valid for a period of three years from the date of birth with notice to seller. Any breach of the duties listed in the Buyer’s Duty Section will render these guaranties NULL AND VOID.
Seller guarantees to the best of his or her knowledge that:
In the event that this puppy should develop and be diagnosed by a licensed veterinarian with a congenital defect as described below, buyer may return this dogue for a full refund or, upon proof of defect as described below from a licensed veterinarian, buyer may keep the dogue and receive a refund for fifty percent (50%) of the purchase price. Seller, at his option, reserves the right of confirmation of this proof of defect by a licensed veterinarian of Seller’s choosing before any money is refunded. If there are conflicting diagnoses, the Buyer(s) agrees to the Seller’s choice of veterinarian’s diagnosis.
Defects specifically include congenital heart defects, hip or elbow dysplasia to such a degree as to significantly impair basic functionality of the dogue on a daily basis, generalized and persistent demodectic mange, and any other defect which significantly impairs the overall health of the dogue insofar as such defect significantly reduces the life expectancy of the dogue or severely restricts the dogue’s day to day functionality. In all defects not listed above, this guaranty will cover those instances where the dogue is unable to function in a reasonable manner on a daily basis or situations where the defect will significantly reduce the life term for the dogue in comparison with the average life expectancy for this breed.

This puppy is a purebred Dogue De Bordeaux and can be registered with a legitimate show registry.
This puppy is free from genetic defects and possesses all the attributes that are consistent with a show-quality dogue. This puppy is free from conformational faults that would designate her as a pet-quality dogue. In the event that this puppy naturally develops a fault that would preclude him or her from being show-quality, the buyer is entitled to a refund in the difference between show and pet quality price not to exceed $500. Such faults must not be the result of buyer negligence or the result of an injury sustained by the dogue while owned by the buyer. A confirmation judge recognized for this breed by AKC must confirm such faults. Buyer(s) would be responsible for getting a written copy of this confirmation to the Seller, unless Seller agrees this is not necessary. Seller reserves the right to have fault confirmed by an AKC confirmation judge of Seller’s choosing.
