Thank you for the purchase of your new family member from Woodlands Frenchies. We are providing you with a health guarantee and sales contract for your peace of mind and ours. This guarantee is a legally binding contract and will be enforced to the full extent of the law. All court mediation will be taken care of in seller's home state of Texas.
The following agreement is between Woodlands Frenchies, hereafter referred to as "Breeder" and John Doe, hereafter referred to as "Buyer" for the sale and purchase of one purebred dog of the French Bulldog breed.
An initial deposit of $1,000 is required to reserve the puppy as follows:
Puppies will not leave our home before 8 weeks of age
The balance is due in cash at the time of pick-up/delivery, no exceptions.
If the puppy/dog is being transported to the Buyer, the entire balance (payable via certified cashier’s check, or bank wire) must be paid in full and cleared 1 week prior to the agreed upon flight/transport/delivery date.
If the Buyer will be picking up, the final payment may be made in cash only upon pick-up. No personal checks or credit cards will be accepted at time of pick-up.
There are no monetary refunds, full or partial, once the puppy/dog has been purchased.
Your puppy is guaranteed for 12 monthsfrom the date of birth against any life-threatening genetic or hereditary disease or defect.
All of our puppies are sold with written health guarantees. Your puppy will come with a health certificate from an initial visit to my veterinarian. Upon examination, the puppy appears to be fully healthy. You will have 3 business daysfrom the date you receive your puppy, in which you will have the puppy health checked by your veterinarian, at your own expense. Failure to do so will result in this contract being null and void.
All precautions have been made to ensure that this puppy is in excellent health at the time of purchase. Buyer needs to be aware that a puppy is a baby and that sometimes he/she may get sick due to stress or other related reasons. He/she is leaving our home and entering a new environment and stress related illnesses may occur. Breeder does not assume any liability for any injury or neglect to this puppy after pickup. It is the Buyer's responsibility to prevent illness and injury by providing necessary booster vaccinations, veterinary care, nutrition, fresh water, shelter and supervision. The Breeder has made every effort to breed healthy dogs and has raised this puppy to the best of his/her ability.
Breeder guarantees that the puppy is a purebred and registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC).
VACCINATIONS All puppies are current on vaccinations and deworming, and will come will a written record for you to provide to your veterinarian. Please do not take your puppy to any public places until the puppy has had ALL of its’ recommended vaccinations, at approximately 12-16 weeks of age, to ensure immunity against disease. This means do not expose them to any unvaccinated dogs or where those dogs may have been until fully vaccinated. You cannot be too careful and we will not be responsible for any disease that is contracted once in your possession. Please do not vaccinate your puppy with LEPTO, if you do this guarantee becomes null and void without exceptions.
WHAT THIS GUARANTEE DOES NOT COVER Cherry eye, umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia, loose hips, loose knees, allergies, soft palate issues, hypoplastic trachea, respiratory infections, kennel cough, demodex, tail abnormalities, stenotic nares, cosmetic issues, buyer's ignorance, neglect of incompetent veterinarians or any other disorders that may be caused by environmental factors such as thyroid or autoimmune disorders. We will not cover any death for any reason if the dog dies under anesthesia.
We do not cover bacterial, fungal, viral, or parasitic infections of any kind; if the dog left here up to date on vaccinations with a negative fecal from the vet, then they were deemed parasite free and fit for sale.
Any physical problem, which is or could be the result of injury sustained or an illness contracted after the consumer took possession of it, is not covered under this guarantee.
Breeder will not be responsible for any medical expenses incurred. Buyer is aware that owning a puppy means trips to the veterinarian and understands that he/she will be responsible for all payments.
Breeder cannot guarantee adult size, color, coat, temperament or trainability of puppy
WHAT THIS GUARANTEE COVERS We guarantee spine issues, heart defects, severe hip dysplasia, patellar luxation grade 3 and higher, elbow dysplasia, eyes, and hearing.
SPINE: Most, if not all, French bulldogs have at least one hemi-vertebrate, if not more. This is acceptable, especially if the hemi-vertebrates occur in the lumbar region to achieve the roach back look. Replacements for spine will be discussed on a case-by-case basis considering the quality of life of your dog, the opinion of your vet and whether surgery is necessary. Please do not let your dog jump from high surfaces, as this can increase the chances of a hemi-vertebrate becoming problematic.
PATELLAS: If your puppy's patellas are graded a 3 or 4 before 12 months of age, your dog will be replaced with a puppy or equal value.
HIP DYSPLASIA: In severe case, requiring surgery to return pup to an ambulatory state. We will require X- rays and 2 opinions from 2 unrelated veterinarians.
If purchasing a puppy with full/breeding rights, we guarantee that the dog/bitch will be able to reproduce. In the case, your dog/bitch is proven to not be able to reproduce by a veterinarian, then we will refund the difference of a pet price and price with full breeding rights, at Breeder’s discretion, assuming all requirements outlined in the following section are met.
REPLACEMENT PUPPY We understand a replacement puppy would never amend the tragedy of a loss; however, we agree in advance on a planned solution should your dog be certified by a licensed veterinarian as "unfit for purchase" due any of the following problem(s):
Requiring major surgery for a correction of a genetic defect
Recommended for euthanasia (hereditary or genetic condition)
Death from hereditary or genetic condition (autopsy required)
Puppy is guaranteed for 12 months from the date of birth against genetic defects only if the following guidelines are followed exactly:
Buyer must notify Breeder of any genetic defect immediately. We insist upon the opportunity to advise or recommend with any knowledge that we have to be of help no matter how large or small the problem. We do not want to be informed of the process after it is complete and final. Our recommendations may vary; if we are to be responsible, we want to be aware of the steps involved in the decision-making process and we need to be included in the decisions.
Buyer must report any trouble immediately to Breeder. Buyer must get all vet records to Breeder within 5 days of reporting trouble.
Buyer must have kept the puppy under the care of a licensed veterinarian. The care must include all vaccinations recommended by the vet on time.
Written notification at the time of diagnosis by Buyer’s veterinarian is required.
A written second opinion from another veterinarian must also be provided to us from the Buyer.
A written statement and signed certificate as to the genetic defect must be provided to us from the Buyer’s veterinarian stating the cause of death and a copy of ALL of your puppy's health records including an necropsy report.
If the condition is covered under this guarantee, Buyer must return affected dog to Breeder within 2 weeks of report at Buyer’s expense. Breeder's veterinarian will then examine the dog.
After these guidelines are followed, if there is a genetic defect present, the Breeder will offer the Buyer the right to return the animal in exchange for a replacement puppy of "equivalent" value, color, and purchase price at the first available opportunity. The replacement puppy would be over 8 weeks old and less than 20 weeks and be mutually agreed upon by both parties. It is also understood that the replacement puppy may not be from the same parents of the original pup. We will try and work with the buyer to ensure satisfaction. If the Buyer decides not to return a less than perfect puppy, this does not mean you forfeit your guarantee. We will apply the difference of the pet price and breeding price to any future puppies purchased from Woodlands Frenchies should you choose this route. This, however, will be at our discretion. Buyer is responsible for all transportation costs to and from the Breeder on a replacement puppy.
PLEASE NOTE: All items covered under this guarantee are for replacement only. Buyer is responsible for all monetary expenses to be paid. No monetary refunds, in part or full, will be given. If the puppy has been bred, spayed, neutered, or euthanized without Breeder’s permission, this guarantee is null and void, and no replacement puppy will be given.
RETURNING YOUR PUPPY A returned puppy must be returned to the Breeder in good condition, other than the specified problem, at the Buyer’s expense. If you euthanize the pup without notifying us, the guarantee is VOID.
