Miracle Shih Tzu Purchase ContractMiracle Shih Tzu Purchase Contract

NEW (July 24, 2016)

If you purchase a puppy from Tiny Miracle Shih Tzu, you will sign our contract.  Please look it over and contact us if you have any questions. 

We do make exceptions to the contact from time to time such as offering full AKC (American Kennel Club) Registration and breeding rights. 

These considerations are offered on a case by case basis only.

Please note that the contract offered below does not include specific puppy, parent or our personal information. 

This will be provided on the day of the sale.  If you need to contact us, use the form at the bottom of this page.

A Word About Genetic Testing

Many internet sites recommend that you question the breeder about any and all genetic testing that is done on the breeding stock.  As an AKC Registered Bred with Heart Breeder, we try to honor this recommendations while at the same time obtaining all the additional schooling and continuing education available to breeders.

With that said, there are some limitations to current testing.  If for example, one of our females passes their eye exam with flying colors one year, has a litter and then fails the test the next year, there is no guarantee to the eye health of puppies born to the girl when her exam showed no problems.  This problem is true pretty much across the board.  Keep that in mind when choosing a breeder. 

If the breeder tells you he/she does DNA testing, ask what tests are performed.  A simple DNA profile done by the AKC will not provide any information about health.

Renters:  Be sure to contact your landlord to assure you are permitted to keep pets in your apartment.

Allergy Sufferers:  Shih Tzu dogs shed very little and seem to have low dander levels but they are not completely hypoallergenic.  No dog is.  Be sure to interact with Shih Tzu dogs before deciding to adopt one.  Better safe than sorry.

The seller, Janice Jones is the lawful owner of the dame and has full legal right to sell its offspring. The puppy is  of sound body and good health at the time of sale.  The purchase price will include      Limited AKC        Full AKC        No Registration paperwork

Buyer’s Responsibilities:  After taking possession of the puppy, the buyer is responsible for caring for and providing all necessary veterinary services.  The puppy may require additional inoculations and the buyer should consult his/her veterinarian for additional information.  If the puppy is sold on a Limited AKC or no paperwork basis, the Buyer agrees to have the puppy spayed/neutered at the appropriate age recommended by the buyer’s veterinarian.  Further, the buyer agrees to provide nutritious food, adequate grooming, and veterinary care including worming, heartworm preventative, and regular vaccinations.

The buyer is to arrange a check-up with a licensed veterinarian within 5 days of taking possession of the puppy, not including Saturday or Sunday.  The seller is to be notified immediately if the veterinarian does not give the dog a clean bill of health.  The guarantee does not include any preventable problem (heat stroke, exhaustion, poisoning, etc.) or any contagious disease/parasites, etc. diagnosed after 5 days as set forth above from the date of possession. If a problem is found at the initial vet visit, and the vet feels the puppy should be returned, the buyer is to supply all information requested by the breeder and breeder’s vet.  If the Seller’s vet comes to the same conclusion, the puppy is to be returned to the Seller in good condition with all paperwork at buyers’ expense within 7 days of findings.  A refund in the amount of the purchase price (including tax if applicable) will be provided by the Seller or the Buyer has the option of another puppy of equal value.    

Limitations:  It is impossible to determine the exact size or color of any puppy when full grown, so there is no guarantee to size, color or show quality of the puppy.  This is no guarantee of the fertility status of the puppy.  The seller assumes no responsibility after the puppy leaves these premises for any change of mind on the part of the buyer resulting from, but not limited to landlord’s disapproval, allergies to the animal, family disagreement, etc.

Health Guarantee:  The Seller certifies that upon receipt, the dog is in good health and has been immunized and wormed per the health record with the exception of the following conditions:  __________________________________________________ which are excluded from any guarantee.  Further, the Seller warrants the puppy for up to one year old for non-treatable life threatening genetic health issues. 

This genetic health guarantee may be extended for up to 2 years if the buyer agrees to keep the dog continually on NuVet Plus Supplements.  Buyer should keep receipts for their purchase of NuVet Plus.  If receipts are not available, NuVet can confirm that the Buyer has purchased sufficient quantities of the product to keep this part of the guarantee in place.  The Seller will replace the deceased puppy with one of equal value as soon as one becomes available.  This guarantee covers only the original buyer and is not transferable.  If the puppy is not checked within 5 days as set forth above, the buyer will void all warranties or eligibility for any warrantee.

Return Policy:  If circumstances arise that would prevent the buyer from keeping the dog, the buyer agrees to make every effort to place the dog in another suitable home.  The dog shall not be turned over to an animal shelter, broker, pet shop or rescue organization.  If the buyer is unable to locate a suitable home, the dog shall be returned to the seller together with its signed-off registration papers—free of charge (no refund).
