This is a legally binding contract with the purpose of protecting the Seller, Buyer and the puppy/ dog. Should you, the buyer, at any time prior to taking possession of your puppy should change your mind it shall be understood that any deposit paid is non-refundable. As breeders, it is our hope that you will take exceptional care of this puppy throughout its entire life. This means providing socialization, medical, proper nutritional, physical needs as necessary, treating your dog as part of your family, and giving it lots of love for the remainder of its life. If for any reason you are unable to keep this puppy please contact us first. We will accept one of our offspring back. We do not repurchase or "buy back" dogs unless under the terms of our "right to first refusal" clause contained herein. Remember that environment and how it raised has tremendous impact on how the dog will turn out. It is important that all Rottweilers get obedience training at an early age.


Seller certifies that said puppy is in good health to the best of Seller’s knowledge. Buyer has 72 hours after purchase to take puppy to a veterinarian. If upon examination the veterinarian finds that said puppy is not in good health, the Buyer must notify the Seller within 24 hours. Buyer shall return the puppy to the Seller with all of the veterinarian documentation. Seller shall replace said puppy with another puppy of equal value as soon as one is available.


The Buyer agrees that any and all transportation at any and all times, to and/or from the Seller’s premises, will be at the cost and sole responsibility of the Buyer. The seller is not responsible for any veterinary fees once dog/puppy has left sellers premises. No reimbursements for veterinary care will be made by seller to buyer. The Buyer agrees to have said puppy/dog micro-chipped and the chip id number shall be provided to Seller by registered mail within 60 days of purchase.


The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative health care of the puppy including, but not limited to: supplemental folic acid, supplemental calcium and potassium (plain yogurt given daily recommended) inoculations, internal as well as external parasites, heart worm preventative medication. The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative care of the puppy in regards to hip dysplasia, such as proper nutrition, proper exercise, and preventing stress injuries (i.e. not allowing the puppy to jump from heights taller than itself at the shoulder, no forced exercise such as running, no climbing stair cases, until at least 12 months of age.) Only after the full amount of the agreed upon amount is paid, may the puppy be removed from the Seller’s premises. If the balance is left unpaid by such date as of 30 days from contract, this agreement shall be canceled at the Sellers’ option and the Buyer shall forfeit the deposit given hereunder unless otherwise agreed upon. Any changes to this time line that have been mutually agreed upon shall be entered and initialed by both parties. This agreement is made by both parties to insure the well-being and protection of this animal. If any part of this agreement is breached, the Seller is released from any further obligation hereunder.

The Buyer agrees that he/she is not acting as or in part of, an agent in the purchase of this puppy and that the Buyer will not sell this puppy or any of its progeny to any agent, pet store, or guard dog business. The Buyer agrees that should it become necessary to sell or otherwise place this puppy/dog, the Buyer will notify the Seller in writing by certified mail before taking such action so that the puppy/dog may, at the Seller’s option, be purchased back by the Seller at original price, less deposit. Buyer is responsible for all shipping charges. Upon receipt of notification, the Seller shall have 21 working days to exercise said re-purchase option. Exercise shall be notice in writing (to include, but not limited to email) sent to the Buyer. The Buyer agrees that the Seller may repossess the animal upon evidence of neglect and/or abuse at no expense to the Seller, and no refund and any monies.
