This guarantee is a legally binding Contract. Please feel free to consult an attorney prior to signing it.
LIMITED LIABILITY: Health Replacement Policy
At the time the Buyer takes possession of the puppy or dog, Seller (Elitehaus) certifies the dog to be free from environmental viruses verified by Seller’s (licensed) Veterinarian. The health and temperament of this dog is excellent to the best of seller’s knowledge and belief at the time of sale. The required vaccinations and wormings are as indicated on the health record. Elitehaus advises the Buyer, however, to have the dog examined by a licensed veterinarian of Buyers choice within 72 hours after receipt of the dog. Elitehaus recommends Buyer take a stool sample, as well. If the veterinarian finds the dog to be in poor health, the dog must be immediately returned to Elitehaus at the expense of Buyer, for a replacement of equal value, unless other arrangements are mutually agreed upon. Failure to see a veterinarian within 72 hours will void all guarantees. No further guarantee is made, and guarantees are not transferable. Dogs are guaranteed for 1 year for any genetic problems that would keep the dog from living a normal and healthy life; this also includes crippling/severe hip dysplasia confirmed by x-rays from a competent licensed veterinarian. Elitehaus reserves the right to have the dog re-x-rayed and the x-rays sent to OFA for evaluation. The dog is to be returned to Elitehaus at the expense of the buyer. This is a replacement guarantee only, with a puppy or dog of equal value at the time of purchase as soon as possible.
DISCLAIMER: Seller assumes no responsibility for the dog or its conduct after delivery to Buyer. Buyer hereby acknowledges that a dog can be provoked to bite no matter the dog’s breed or temperament. Buyer also acknowledges that any dog’s behavior is subject to change, including but not limited to a change in personality, health, or character, and also including aggression, and therefore Buyer hereby assumes all risk of any kind related to the actions or behavior of said dog, including but not limited to any acts of aggression. In acknowledgement of all of the above, Buyer hereby releases Seller from any liability for behavioral actions of the dog or the direct or indirect consequences thereof. It is further understood and agreed that no warranties or representations of any nature have been made to Buyer except those contained in this health guarantee. All dogs are sold “as is”, except as expressly warranted in this agreement.
RE-SALE: In the event buyer is unable to keep the puppy/dog for any reason, Buyer agrees to give Elitehaus first right of refusal to take the puppy/dog back. Elitehaus will not accept responsibility for any re-sale, nor shall Seller’s guarantees herein apply to any third party, but to original Buyer only.
BILL OF SALE/RECEIPT: Upon full payment, Seller sells, assigns and transfers all its right, title and interest in the dog to Buyer. Buyer agrees to pay Seller deposit at the signing of this Contract and the remaining balance at time of delivery or before shipping. Buyer agrees that he/she is responsible for taking possession of the dog by picking the dog up in person or hiring Seller to deliver or ship the dog in person at Buyer’s sole expense. All sales are final and down-payments/deposits are non-refundable.
