Contract for Purchase of Standard Poodle Puppy   

This contract is between Debra Sterns of Callasterns Standard Poodles (Seller) and _______________________________________________________________________________(Buyer/s).

Buyer is purchasing a standard poodle puppy for the amount of  Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000.00) for Limited Registration on a spay/neuter contract.   Special Treaty is available for Open Registration, with price to be determined and with special addendums.

Upon confirmation of pregnancy,  a non-refundable deposit of $500, the completed Pre-Purchase Puppy Questionnaire and two (2) copies of signed, notarized Contract for Purchase will be required to reserve a puppy.  This deposit will be applied toward the purchase price.  If, after birth, an appropriate puppy is not deemed available and no substitution cannot be made, deposit will be returned in full.  If, after the birth, you change your mind, for any reason, the deposit is forfeit. 

Payment in full must be made 10 days prior to picking up the puppy if paying by check/money order or payment in cash is accepted the day of pick up.  Puppies will not leave prior to 10 weeks of age.  If you cannot pick your puppy up at 10 weeks of age, I can hold the puppy for you. The per diem fee is $25 per day and if it is past the 30 day window on the health certificate - another health certificate must be prepared.  That cost is office visit plus $35 for regular certificate, $50 for air travel and if it is time - the next series in the puppy shots.  Puppy must meet weight requirements to fly in cabin - not more than 20 pounds.  Please make checks/money orders payable to Debra Sterns, thank you.

Before you pick up your puppy, the two notarized copies of the Contract to Purchase must be fully executed and on file with me.  Your copy will be included in your puppy folder.  

Puppy is described as follows:        

Sex:   Male/Female 

Color:   _____________

Date of Birth: _______________     AKC Registration #_____________ 

 Dam:  Callasterns Dazzling Kissing Queen of Hearts (Kissy) PR202275509

 Sire:   ___________________________________

 Microchip #  ___________________  Microchip company:  _AKC REUNITE____________________

Puppy (____________________) has a current Health Certificate, has been wormed and received FFP at birth, two neo-par vaccinations and his/her first in a series of 3 core puppy shots.  Tails are docked to PCA breed standards and dew claws are removed.  It is recommended that until the last of the 3 puppy shots series is complete, the puppy should not be taken into public areas visited by other dogs (i.e. dog parks, dog training facilities, dog boarding facilities, Petsmart, etc.) for their safety or have outside dogs visit in your home.  

Rabies shots must not be given with any other vaccinations and not given until a minimum of 5 months of age although I prefer 6 months. I strongly encourage the Dr. Dodds Limited Vaccine Protocol with all puppies and dogs. You may see the breakdown of the recommended age for vaccines at:    

Although there can be no absolute guarantees of long-term health, the thorough testing of both Dam and Sire for any adverse genetic disease/structural abnormalities has been completed and the results are published through OFA and available on the website.  That information will also be provided in your puppy folder.  

It is recommended that you take your new puppy to your own vet for a thorough Wellness physical exam/introduction within the first week you have him/her.  However, that first appointment MUST NOT include any vaccinations or worming.  If you are unhappy with the results of said exam, I will have him/her examined again by my vet, or a vet of my choice.  If the result is the same, I will take the puppy back and refund the purchase price in full, less transportation and re-exam expenses.  The second series of shots is due at 12 weeks old, the final at 16 weeks old.  Do not allow any "extra" vaccinations.

If it comes to my attention, at any time, that the puppy is being abused physically or mentally, not fed properly, being used for breeding without approval or housed inappropriately, I will retrieve the puppy and be provided immediately with all relevant paperwork (AKC Registration with appropriately signed transfer and Microchip release) and will re-sell or re-home the puppy. After medical costs/transportation, other selling expenses and deposit are deducted - the balance of the purchase amount will be returned to you. If legal action has to be taken to retrieve the puppy, Buyer will be responsible for all of Seller's legal fees, Transportation, Per Diem ($175 per day) and Court Costs, including special fees associated with the serving of papers.   

Unless your puppy is to be an AKC Conformation Show or AKC Performance Prospect, or will have full breeding rights, with arrangements made in advance, (which includes 1st position co-ownership, appropriately increased purchase price and additional stipulations/addendum regarding breeding) your puppy is being sold on a Spay/Neuter Contract.  Proof of spay/neuter must be provided to Seller by your vet.  You are required to wait until a minimum of 14 months or later to spay or neuter this puppy.  New research has shown significant disruption in structural integrity by spaying/neutering too young.  A preventative gastroplexy at the time of spay/neuter is strongly advised as these are deep chested dogs.

The kennel name “CALLASTERNS” is encouraged for Buyer’s use in the registered name. You are urged to immediately register your puppy through AKC. Upon doing so you will receive a certificate for 30 days of free health insurance protection for your puppy.  I highly encourage you to immediately purchase a puppy health insurance policy - my recommendation is Embrace Pet Insurance.  Purchasing early removes the chance of any pre-existing stipulations.  Please ask immediately for the orthopedic waiver and have that signed by your vet at your first visit - otherwise there is a 6-month waiting period for orthopedic coverage.

You will  be asked to activate the Microchip Registration before you leave my home with the puppy.  My name will remain on the chip as an alternate contact for the puppy at all times.

Your puppy folder will contain the Dam and Sire’s AKC registration information, a copy of a five-generation pedigree, photos of Dam and Sire, a copy of the Litter Registration, the puppy's individual AKC Registration Form, the Microchip Registration form, copies of OFA health statistics for both Dam and Sire which includes their CHIC number, the puppy’s current health certificate, a copy of Vetrinary office notes to give to your vet of choice, the COI results (run prior to breeding) and information on the Bio-Sensor Stimulation, Scent Work, Puppy Culture and Volhard Puppy Aptitude/Temperament testing results.  I will also include the age appropriate exercise standards recommended in "Puppy Culture” as well as a FAQ sheet dealing with everything puppy/poodle related that I can help with.

I will take and share photos and videos of the puppies on my Callasterns Standard Poodles Facebook page throughout your puppy’s development.  You can watch him/her grow and develop before he/she comes home with you.  I will always be available and happy to answer any questions you may have about this puppy. If you have questions I can't answer - I will strive to find the answer for you!!

Final puppy selection is at my discretion and, ultimately, the puppy’s choice is final.  Pick of the litter for show quality (either sex) remains with the Seller and cannot be determined until 9 weeks of age. In case of conflict, choice remains with the Seller to retain that puppy or allow the puppy to go to the buyer.  When final pick has been made, I will begin to call your puppy by it's new call name.  

No visitors are allowed until 3 weeks of age and we use precautions before you see the puppies for their protection.   No shoes in the home (shoe covers are available) and use of Purell sanitizer on hands and forearms. 

I do not ship puppies.  If you are traveling by air or have a long car drive, I will provide Nutri-Cal paste to keep your puppy's blood sugar stable during travel.  Flight certificates are only good for 30 days and there is a 20 pound weight limit for in-flight carriers.  There is also a additional fee of $20.00 for a flight ready health certificate.  I do have 2 in-cabin soft carriers that I will loan to buyers which must be returned right away. 

I retain first right of refusal if, at any time you become unable to keep your puppy, to have the puppy returned to me at Buyer’s expense. Please provide the name, address and phone number of the person you have designated as guardian of the puppy in the event of an incapacitating illness or death. The person taking over the temporary care of the puppy/dog will need to have my contact information in order to discuss the return of the puppy to me or their continued ownership of said puppy at my sole discretion.  Puppy will NOT be sold or given to another party or rescue organization without my written approval.  All stipulations within this contract migrate with the puppy to the receiving party whether temporary or permanent.  

Contract entered into this ____ day of ______________, 2018.  No alterations will be made to this contract without prior approval and initials from all parties to this Contract. Notary Jurat/Affidavit must be attached to both copies of contract.
