- Seller’s Representations
(a) As of this agreement, Puppy is in good health and free of communicable diseases, with any exceptions noted here:
(b) The Buyer has 72 hours to examine the puppy. The puppy may be returned with all paperwork for any reason for a full refund. Further, the buyer has 10 days in which to have puppy examined by a veterinarian and/or to personally inspect the Puppy. Buyer may return the puppy (and all paperwork) to Seller for a full refund for health issues within this period, providing the Buyer agrees to pay all return transportation costs to Seller. Breeder is at no point responsible for veterinary fees, costs, or diagnoses after Buyer has taken possession of Puppy.
2) Buyer’s Representations
(a) Buyer is completely satisfied with and waives any and all claims regarding the Puppy’s conformation and outward appearance, and agrees that Puppy meets the breed standards at this age.
(b) Buyer agrees upon purchase that Puppy will not be registered with any other registries besides the American Kennel Club without written permission from Breeder. If a Twilight Great Dane is found registered to a different registry (UKC, CKC, etc.) without breeders written permission, the Buyer will immediately return the said Puppy to the Breeder and pay fines as listed in Section 9 of this contract.
(c ) Buyer agrees to update Seller at least once a year on condition of Puppy and is to include a currant, clear picture of Puppy. Updates are due two (2) months prior to Puppy’s whelp date. No later then Whelp date. Updates may be sent via email or US Postal Service, to the above listed email address or postal address unless Breeder gives Buyer change of addresses, in which case will be sent to the new addresses.
Puppy identified in this contract is being sold for the sum of $___________________________________ under Section 4, and was paid in full before the puppy was removed from the litter.
4) Stipulation – Pet Purchase
(a) Buyer understands that puppy has been sold with limited American Kennel Club (AKC) registration. Limited registration precludes Buyer from showing Puppy in confirmation shows and from registering any litters produced or sired by Puppy. Said limited registration entitles Buyer to register Puppy with AKC and compete in all sanctioned events (Obedience, Agility, Fly Ball, etc.) other then confirmation shows.
(b) Buyer agrees to take all measures necessary to insure that Puppy is not bred and does not have the opportunity to sire or deliver any litters.
(c ) Buyer agrees that Puppy will be spayed or neutered and proof of same will be provided to Seller by the age of 16 months unless faults originally assumed to be irreversible have self-corrected, and proof of correction agreeable to Seller (including but not limited to pictures, videos, and personal inspection of Puppy by Seller and/or Seller’s representative) has been provided to Seller. I encourage any pet puppy buyers who would like me to take a second look at the puppy, to bring him/her to me (at Buyer’s expense) at 6-12 months for a re-evaluation. At that point if the dog is determined to be show potential and the buyer agrees to abide by the Show/Breeding Purchase Agreement, pay the difference between show and pet price, the registration will be changed to “full” registration. It is the current recommendation by the Great Dane Club of America to NOT spay/neuter puppies prior to 12 months of age. Buyer agrees to not spay/neuter prior to 12 months of age
(a) Seller agrees that Puppy is in good health and has received appropriate medical care. Seller will provide Buyer with information detailing treatment the puppy has received under Seller’s care, and future care Seller feels essential to Puppy’s well-being.
(b) Seller guarantees that Puppy is free of life-threatening diseases or disabilities for 10 days after delivery to Buyer. Buyer may return the puppy to Seller for a full refund for any health reason within this period, providing Buyer pays all return transportation costs. Seller strongly recommends that Buyer have Puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian of Buyer’s choice within 10 days of receipt of Puppy. Breeder shall at no point be responsible for veterinary fees, costs, or diagnoses, including those related to genetic faults, at any point after Buyer takes possession of Puppy.
(c ) Buyer agrees that Seller shall not be held responsible for the development of any non-genetically derived disqualifying faults, diseases, or disorders.
(d) Seller guarantees that Puppy will obtain a passing OFA Hip/Elbow rating (Fair, Good, or Excellent) at the age of 2 years. Examination MUST be done by the age of 25 months and ALL x-rays MUST be submitted to OFA for evaluation. Failure to do so voids any hip/elbow guarantees. A copy of OFA hip certification must be forwarded to the Seller. If Puppy is diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia, a second set of x-rays (may be sent to OFA or to Seller, at Seller‘s discretion) must confirm the condition. If confirmed, a replacement puppy of equivalent value will be provided when available.
(e) Should Puppy be diagnosed with a genetically derived medical disorder before the age of 2 that is crippling or fatal in nature and which is attested to by two unassociated veterinarians, Seller will, upon provision of veterinary reports and, where applicable, OFA report, provide Buyer with a replacement puppy of equal quality as soon as one becomes available. The original puppy will be returned to the breeder. A second option is offered by the breeder. It the buyer so chooses, the breeder will pay medical costs associated with the genetic defect up to the full original purchase price of the puppy. No refunds of money will be made. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. This guarantee is extended only to the original Buyer(s) listed on this contract.
Specifically covered disorders: Juvenile Cataracts, Renal Dysplasia, Microopthalmia, Retinal Dysplasia or other congenital blindness, Megaesophagus, Hip Dysplasia, Dilated Cardiomyopathy (if diagnosed prior to 24 months of age), Mitral Valve Defect (same), Epilepsy (same), Autoimmune Hypothyroidism (same).
Breeder has made every effort to produce a litter that will excel in temperament. However, once the puppy leaves Breeder’s possession, its temperament and behavior are determined by the care and training given by the Buyer.
(a) Buyer understands that Breeder strongly urges Buyer to put Puppy through a puppy/basic obedience course. This is to ensure that puppy will have proper socialization and under voice control to provide Puppy with the best opportunities.
(b) Seller shall in no way be held responsible for acts of Puppy at any point after Buyer takes possession.

(e) Buyer agrees to NOT start Agility (jumpers), roadwork, treadmill, or other strenuous physical training of Puppy until it has reached a minimum of 18 months of age, and to maintain a light schedule until 24 months.

Puppy is sold with the understanding that it was to go to a carefully selected parties and the Buyer AVOWS that Puppy shall become a member of the family.
(g) Buyer further acknowledges responsibility for any and all appropriate medical care that is necessary for maintaining the health and welfare of Puppy throughout the life of the dog.

Buyer agrees Seller will REPOSSESS PUPPY UPON EVIDENCE OF NEGLECT AND/OR ABUSE and that Buyer will be responsible for Seller’s fees and costs involved in repossession. Buyer gives permission to Seller to enter property and take possession of Puppy upon evidence of neglect, abuse, or evidence of breach of contract. Should buyer refuse return of Puppy to Seller, the seller may resort to Law Enforcement Officer(s) to take possession of the Puppy.
(b) If at any time, circumstances are such that Buyer cannot keep Puppy after the first 72 hours, Buyer must return Puppy (and all AKC registration papers), to Seller at Buyer’s expense. No refund of monies will be made.
