Upon transfer, should the puppy be found to be in poor health, of a serious nature, Seller will provide Buyer with certain remedies, based on the severity of the illness/condition. ALL claims of illness/condition must be confirmed by examination by 2 seperate veterinarians. Travel expenses will not be refunded. The following conditions apply:

A. The Buyer has 3 (three) business days from the time of receiving the puppy to have the puppy examined by a Veterinarian.

Proof of examination must be provided.

B. Seller provides a health guarantee until the puppy is 24 months of age for any genetic diseases that can be tested by DNA for the breed specific for the doodle purchased (Poodle, Golden Retriever, and/or Bernese Mountain Dog) at the time of breeding. Under these circumstances, Buyer MUST contact Seller within three (3) days of any diagnosis or health concerns. Buyer shall be in constant contact with Seller throughout treatment of puppy. Buyer must provide to seller veterinarian records including, but not limited to, tests and results while treatment/diagnostics are being done.

Hip dysplasia is also excluded because it can also be caused by injury from jumping, sliding on slick floors, excessive stair climbing, etc.  

Spay and Neuter Contract

1. The seller requires waiting until at least 16 months of age for spay/neuter as early spay/neuter has been found to increase the risk of joint disorders, impact on urinary health, and increases cancer among other things. Females, in addition to being at least 16 months of age must have gone through at least one heat cycle. The heat cycles for females releases hormones that are beneficial for bladder maturity as well as joint health and overall development. Early spay/neuter before 16 months of age (both males and females) & prior to females first heat voids Health Guarantee.

A. The Buyer must supply the Seller with documentation of spay and neuter veterinarian records and bills. If the Seller does not receive this the warranty will become null and void.

B. It is understood that at the time of sale that the puppy is not to be used for breeding. It is a representation of its breed and it is structurally and temperamentally suited for a companion and/or working dog. It is being sold as a pet without breeding rights. Bubbling Springs Doodles' puppies are sold on a STRICT NON-BREEDING contract. Therefore, Buyer agrees to have their puppy spayed/neutered after age of 16 months. Buyer must send proof of procedure to Seller via email or regular mail. Upon execution of this contract as outlined above will terminate your Health Warranty, will be assessed a penalty that is 15 times the purchase price of the puppy, and will forfeit all income and any resulting puppies as a result of breach of contract. Any legal fees incurred by the Seller to enforce this non breeding contract are the sole responsibility of the Buyer. Any and all legal proceedings will take place under the jurisdiction of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. *Should an accidental breeding occur, Buyer should immediately notify Seller of the event. In this case, no penalty fee will be charged to Buyer; however, Seller reserves the right to work with Buyer to market and sell the resulting puppies and claims all profit associated with such.

FULL AND FINAL AGREEMENT:

Both Buyer and Seller agree that this Contract represents the entire Agreement between them and that no other representations regarding the responsibilities of either party have been made regarding the puppy described above. 

By signing this contract I agree to all of the previous terms of the contract and warranty. Electronic signatures shall be considered legal and binding.
