Breeder agrees to provide the new owners after full payment with the following:
     Signed AKC Registration papers (Full or Limited)
     Record of vaccinations and deworming to date
     List of vaccinations and deworming needed in the immediate future

 

Health Guarantees:
  

At the time of sale, Breeder believes the puppy is a healthy, sound, quality puppy that is current on all vaccinations.  Puppies' health is guaranteed for 3 days after pick-up or shipment.  We do not guarantee against Parvo, Corona, or Giardia after 3 days of purchase.  Buyer agrees to have puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian of their choice within 5 days.  If the veterinarian detects a life threatening health issue that cannot be corrected or controlled by medication within that period, a replacement puppy of equal value, if one is available, will be given upon the return of puppy and registration papers.  Shipping charges to and from for a replacement puppy will be at Buyer's expense.  Buyer must provide a written statement from the examining veterinarian detailing the health problem.  If a puppy is determined to be suffering from an active parasitic infection within the first three days, Breeder will be required to compensate Buyer for just the medications prescribed by a licensed veterinarian for the treatment of said infection.  Medications for illnesses that are common in puppies that are shipped will not be covered (ie. Kennel Cough, Coccidia, Giardia).  If the Buyer fails to take the puppy to be examined by a licensed veterinarian or if the Buyer decides to keep the puppy after discovering a problem, the Breeder WILL NOT be responsible for any veterinary costs incurred.  The Breeder has the right to have the puppy examined by a veterinarian of the Breeder's choice, at the Breeder's expense, for a second opinion. 

Puppies' eyes, heart, reproductive organs (if full registration), hips and elbows are covered until the dog's 2nd birthday.  This only covers genetic defects.  It does not cover situations out of the breeder's control, including heart failure not related to an inherited condition.  Guarantee does not cover problems from, but not limited to the following:

    *Poor Nutrition  *Over supplementation  *Mistreatment  *Trauma  * Injury from jumping or falling *Accidents not in the Breeders' control

Should the puppy have any genetic deformity:

      1.  The Buyer will alter the dog in question if it hasn't already been done.

      2.  The Breeder will replace the puppy with an equal quality/value puppy when one becomes available.

      3.  The Buyer is responsible for any shipping costs of the new puppy.

      4.  If the dog dies then the Buyer MUST obtain a necropsy by a licensed veterinarian and submit the findings to the Breeder. 

The Breeder has the right to seek a second opinion by a veterinarian of choice.  If any disputes arise as to the cause or validity of the injury, both parties agree to select a third mutually agreed upon veterinarian specialist in the diagnosed problem to resolve the dispute.  Expense for such specialist consultation will be split evenly between the Buyer and the Breeder.

Recognizing the unique nutritional requirement of the breed, this guarantee shall
be null and void if the dog has not been fed high quality dog food or has been given calcium or vitamin supplementation of any kind that has not been recommended by a veterinarian.

 

BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITIES:

 

RULES FOR PURCHASING LIMITED REGISTRATION PUPPIES:

 

All puppies that are sold with Limited AKC Registration must be spayed or neutered, without ever being bred, as soon as is recommended by their veterinarian.

IF A PUPPY IS SOLD WITH LIMITED REGISTRATION AND IS BRED AT ANY TIME THEN THE HEALTH GUARANTEE BECOMES NULL AND VOID.

 

BUYER MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF SPAYING OR NEUTERING TO BREEDER!

 

______ Please initial to confirm that you understand and agree to the terms of the spay/neuter agreement.


 

RULES FOR PURCHASING FULL REGISTRATION PUPPIES:

 

Females:


For the protection of the breed, health and well being of the bitch, and the protection of the breed population, the Buyer hereby agrees:

Not to breed this bitch more than 4 times unless a breeding does not produce a litter, the litter results in only one live puppy, or a litter is stillborn.  You may not breed this bitch more than twice in an 18 month period.  You may breed her for two successive heats but not three successive heats.  This clause includes accidental breeding.

This bitch will not be bred before 18 months of age.  22 months is recommended.  Do not breed her after her sixth (6th) birthday.  It is recommended for the health of your bitch to spay her after she is done breeding to prevent a serious life-threatening condition called pyometra.

The Buyer shall never breed this bitch to anything other than a respectable specimen of her own breed, always keeping in mind the betterment of the breed and always striving to improve the breed and to reduce genetic faults.  Buyer is encouraged to seek assistance and advice from the Breeder, or any other individual from the AKC or breed specific club who is knowledgeable and experienced with the breed before breeding takes place to insure the quality of the puppies.

The Buyer agrees to not knowingly sell or give away offspring of this bitch to any known puppy mill, broker, or pet shop; nor produce puppies for the same.  Neither shall it be allowed to produce litters for the purpose of producing stock for laboratory experimentation.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS THIS BITCH TO BE USED FOR CROSS BREEDING/DESIGNER BREEDING!

 


Males:

For the protection of the breed, the health and well being of this dog, and the protection of the breed population, the Buyer hereby agrees:

The Buyer shall never breed this dog to any other than a respectable specimen of his own breed, always keeping in mind the betterment of the breed and always striving to improve the breed and to reduce genetic faults. The Buyer is encouraged to seek assistance and advice from the Breeder or any other individual from the AKC or breed specific club who is knowledgeable and experienced with the breed before breeding takes place to insure the quality of the puppies.

The Buyer agrees to not knowingly breed this dog to any known puppy mill, broker or pet shop bitches; nor be used to sire litters for the purpose of producing puppies for the same.  Neither shall it be allowed to sire litters for the purpose of producing stock for laboratory experimentation.  It shall be the stud dog owners' responsibility to check the reputability of the bitch owner before breeding takes place.  Should questions arise as to the reputability of the bitch owner, the Buyer will not breed this dog to the bitch.

If you choose to stud your dog to an outside bitch, a negative brucellosis test no older than 7 days should be required of the bitch owner.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS THIS STUD TO BE USED FOR CROSS BREEDING/DESIGNER BREEDING!


Naming Your Puppy and Registering Your Puppy With AKC:

You (the Buyer) may choose the name of your puppy.  Your puppy must be named with the prefix Makaleka Mastiffs.  Example:  If you decide to name your puppy Baby, you must register Baby as "Makaleka Mastiff's Baby". You may choose whatever name you wish to follow the prefix.  If you purchased a Limited Registration puppy, there will be a hole in the papers where I cut out the Full Registration code since you will only need one code to register your puppy with Limited Registration.  If you purchased a Full Registration puppy, the papers will have two codes on them.  Registering your puppy online is the easiest and fastest way to go.  Remember to register before your puppies' first birthday to avoid AKC late fees.


If you decide to sell or give away your dog, you MUST give us first right of refusal, at NO cost to us.  If we do not take the dog then you agree to have your dog spayed/neutered before it leaves your possession and you MUST contact us to tell us where you have placed the dog.

 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THIS PUPPY BE USED FOR HUNTING OR DOG FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!  This puppy shall live as a loving member of the family, not confined to a  cage or chain for its life.  Failure to abide by this will result in the puppy being repossessed!


This written agreement is a binding contract entered into the State of Hawaii and is the entire agreement between the Buyer/Customer and the Seller/Breeder concerning the health conditions or loss of this puppy.  Any litigation commenced shall take place in the state of Hawaii in Hawaii County.
