Health Guarantee and Sales Agreement
This puppy has had a wellness check with a licensed veterinarian before leaving Miracle Homestead Labradors. A record of vaccinations and dewormings has been provided for you when you picked up your puppy. Within five (5) business days of taking ownership of this puppy you must have the puppy seen by a licensed veterinarian for a wellness check. This shall be the responsibility and expense of the buyer or all guarantees are null and void. We warrant the health of this puppy for a period of 7 days after taking ownership. Due to the fact that puppies naturally get worms very easily we do not guarantee the puppy for worms or parasites that are common in puppies and are typically easily treated. You, the new owner, must have all dewormings and vaccinations kept current as recommended by a licensed veterinarian. Failure to have documents showing this has been done will void all guarantees within this contract.
When your vet makes the initial examination if there is an issue that needs to be addressed or they find the puppy to be at a serious health risk you must notify us the same day of the exam. If you choose euthanasia without our prior written consent you will forfeit all guarantees within this contract. If it is determined at this time that the puppy will be returned to us, you must return her/him within forty-eight (48) hours along with a written report from the vet. For a full refund you must fill out all necessary forms to return ownership of the puppy back to Miracle Homestead Labradors. We are not responsible for vet bills or traveling fees. We do not assume liability for any injuries or accidents to the puppy after you have taken ownership of the puppy.
We warrant against life altering or fatal congenital defects until the puppy is twelve (12) months of age. In the event of a genetic defect we will assist with vet bills that relate to this condition; however, our liability shall not exceed 50% of the purchase price of the puppy. To validate this guarantee you must provide us with a written statement from the vet with their signature stating the health problem(s) including the symptoms supporting their diagnosis along with copies of any x-rays and/or tests that were done. If you choose to return the puppy along with the appropriate documents Miracle Homestead Labradors shall replace her/him within one (1) year of the puppy’s return. If we are unable to replace the puppy within this year we will give a full refund of the purchase price. We are not responsible for any other vet bills or traveling fees.
The puppy comes with AKC registration papers so you can register her/him with AKC if you choose to do so; however, we do not guarantee what the puppy’s mature weight, size or coloring will be or if the puppy will be of show or breeding quality.
If you find you are unable to care for your puppy/dog that you purchased from Miracle Homestead Labradors and cannot find a good home for her/him we ask that you do not take them to an animal shelter or rescue facility. We will take the puppy/dog back and seek to rehome them; however, we do not issue a refund or replace the puppy/dog in these circumstances.
All sales are final except for those guarantees written herein. This contract is only valid for the buyer who has signed this contract. If said buyer is no longer the owner of the puppy/dog this contract and its guarantees are voided and no longer valid.
The above is the contract we have and you will have a signed copy to take with you when the purchase is finalized.
INFORMATION ON DEPOSITS AND THE SELECTION PROCESS
Please see our "Available Puppies" page for information on how to be placed on a list to be notified of upcoming litters. Clients on the notification list have priority and are contacted in the order they were added to the list.
We strive to be fair to buyers by accepting deposits after the puppies are born to secure the buyer's choice of sex. We ask for a non-refundable $250.00 deposit to secure your puppy until time for pick-up. This deposit in non-refundable; however, it is applied towards the full purchase price of the puppy. The only exception is if the puppy you have selected dies, becomes incurably ill or in any way becomes unsuitable for us to sell then we will refund the deposit.
Buyers will choose their puppy according to the order in which the deposits were received. Buyer may choose their puppy when the puppies are six (6) to eight (8) weeks of age. You may visit our home and make your selection in person if you are able to do so. We will be posting photos and information on the puppies so you will also be able to make your selection without making a trip to our home if you'd like. We also send additional information on specific puppies to you by email if you request it. When you are notified that you are the next buyer to choose your puppy please do so within a reasonable amount of time. If the puppies have reached eight (8) weeks of age and you have not made your selection you may forfeit your position in the selection process.
We expect the buyer to come in person or send a family member or friend to pick up your selected puppy when the puppy has reached eight (8) weeks of age. Full payment must be made before or on the day of pick-up. We will accept checks up to 10 days before pick-up. Payment by cash may be made at the time of pick-up. PayPal and Venmo are also acceptable methods of payment. We do not ship our puppies; however, we would consider meeting at a distance for a fee. We are willing to work with our clients in keeping the puppy longer than 8 weeks if it's helpful and more convenient for their schedule.
Note: We usually do not schedule appointments for puppy visits or pick up on Sundays.
