The contract is as follows:
Hyline Golden Retrievers was established in 1986. Hyline kennels is dedicated to producing the highest line of Golden Retrievers; thus the prefix "Hyline" is a constant reminder of my purpose in breeding. My personal dogs compete mainly in conformation for American and Canadian championships. Persons acquiring puppies from me, besides showing in conformation, enjoy much success in obedience, agility, canine companion, hunting, and therapy dogs, as well as devoted pets.
All of my litters come from sires and dams that have their hips and elbows registered with the Orthopedic Foundation of Animals (OFA) and are free from genetic hip and elbow disease. Their eyes are certified by an ophthalmologist once a year. They have their hearts listened too by a board certified Cardiologist, screening for any abnormalities and certified free of cardiovascular disease. I only breed dogs with all clearances. My dogs are free from allergies, epilepsy and of course must display the true Golden Retriever temperament.
My litters are born in my home and at three weeks begin socializing with groups of children until they come into your home. Pets are to be spayed or neutered; I do not sell to persons for breeding purposes.
Note: Golden Retrievers shed year round and like to be active. Females’ AKC standard is 21½ inches with an inch deviation and about 65 pounds. Males’ AKC standard is 23½ inches with an inch deviation and about 75 pounds. So, consequently you could have a female at the top of the standard and a male at the bottom, about the same size. Size is not solely dependent on sex.
When you return the second page of this contract, please include a brief letter answering these questions:
If specific personality and or type (looks) are most important, it is best to list a sex preference, but be accepting of either in order to not limit the choices for you. My years of experience and the fact that I live with these puppies make me your best matchmaker; therefore, I select your puppy for you.
Upon signing this contract, you are agreeing to:
For as the breeder believes too many or untimely vaccinations, lack of proper exercise and/or improper nutritional support will result in numerous health related problems and disabilities, any deviations from the above stipulations will be considered a breech of contract.
It is understood that this pet will not be used for breeding purposes. The puppy will be sold to you on a limited registration to insure this. It is strongly suggested that you spay or neuter your pet.
I guarantee your pet to be free from major disabilities that would keep him from functioning as a pet. I will replace this pet with another if this pet becomes blind from cataract, has hip dysplasia severe enough that it is unable to function as a pet, or if the pet develops allergies that cause great discomfort. This guarantee does not include changes due to normal aging. Aging defined as over eight years of age.
The price for the puppy is $1,500.00. Please sign and return this form with a $200.00 deposit. The deposits are entered in my book in the order they arrive. The puppies go home between 7 and 12 weeks of age depending on when I am satisfied with my evaluation of them. You will be contacted when I have a puppy for you. If you are not ready at that time, you are not obligated to take the puppy. Only in the event that no puppies are available will your deposit be refunded.
If married, both parties must sign the contract.
