SALE CONDITIONS 



 

We have no desire whatsoever to cause any offense by these stipulations when we agree to the sale of our puppies, but have their best interests in mind.

The purchase of any  pup must be well thought over.

A puppy needs a great deal of time and attention especially for his training, cleanliness and obedience

Remember a dog is the mirror of his owner's own personality and will become what his owner wants him to become.

 

1/a) In order to protect our babies, we do not sell them for breeding purposes. It is nonetheless perfectly normal to want a pup  from one's own dog.
We are well aware that "Reproduction" does not in itself contradict harmonious doggy life as we ourselves breed our own dogs. They have the benefit of comfortable living conditions, and freedom and space.

Under these terms, for those clients wishing to have a litter, we desire as far as it is possible for us to give advice and guidance in order that the puppies will be of quality and contribute to the improvement of their race...through lineage  we can advise.
Any "Client" purchasing a puppy from us will be able to, if he wishes apply our own protocol of reproduction, in liason with our vets specialising in reproduction.
    b) We have become aware of the interest breeders (French and foreign) have for our lineages. This is why exceptions might be made under certain conditions.
Our retired dogs lead a comfortable, happy life at home and will never be sent elsewhere for retirement, their lives will end where they began...here at home with our family. As we could never imagine being separated from our  "human" children we would never want to impose this psychological distress on our four legged friends.   
This is why we insist that  the future breeder purchaser  must agree to keep the dog they purchase from us at their home on retirement from breeding. They must respect fully the female (4 litters maximum between the age of 3 to 8 years with only 3 litters if the preceding two were large. We will be extremely strict on these conditions before selling a puppy. 

The animal is reserved and sold for personal and family enjoyment as a pet. Except by  special endorsement in the sales contract, there is no guarantee for competition or showing results of any kind.


2/ On purchasing a puppy, the buyer promises and guarantees :
 
            - That he is not a dog breeder nor acting as an intermediary whatsoever
 
-If he is a breeder we will include an endorsement in the sale contract in respect to the conditions listed in paragraph 1b

Our pups are only sold to responsible people, having contacted us and been accepted by us as future owners of our puppies.

    If misconduct concerning paragraph 2 is noted, the sales contact will become null and void, the puppy or adult dog will be taken back into our possession by any person we designate and brought back here as soon as possible. The total purchase fees will be kept as damages. The costs involved in the recuperation will be charged to the purchaser.
