BUYER made a deposit of _________ required to hold the puppy. The remaining balance of __________ is due “IN CASH” when the puppy is picked up, no later than 8 weeks of age, unless otherwise arranged for an alternative pickup date.
The puppy you are purchasing comes pre-spoiled with AKC Full OR Limited registration application, 1 year vital health guarantee contract, vet checked, 1st vaccine, current de-worming, health record, puppy pack, puppy instructions & a complimentary gift bag.
Note to Buyer: $150.00 of the purchase price of your puppy is Non-Refundable. Deposits are to ensure the seriousness of the buyer and secure the sale of this specific puppy. Your new puppy should be picked up by the scheduled pickup date, no later than 8 weeks old. If you would like to arrange an alternative pick up date, Note: a $15.00 per day boarding fee will apply if the puppy is held past the first weekend; beginning the following Monday after the vet examination and will only be held for seven more days. I can't hold a puppy for several weeks as this is a crucial bonding time for the puppy. When prior arrangements are made with the breeder to hold past 8 weeks old, FULL PAYMENT must be received by the puppy’s scheduled eight week pickup date. In the unlikely event that your new puppy was to fail the vet vital health check, or while under my care sustains injury or dies, we will discuss a replacement puppy of equal value. If there is no puppy of equal value available, a refund of your deposit will be given or you could elect to wait on a future litter. If you choose to wait on a future litter, I will refund half of your deposit and when you choose your puppy, you would then put $75.00 down on that puppy.

Please feel free to call and schedule a puppy visit, I welcome you.
Just because your new puppy has been vaccinated once for a contagious disease, does not mean that your puppy will be immune to diseases such as Distemper, Parvo-virus etc. The only prevention to such disease is to keep UP TO DATE on their vaccines. DHPP vaccines should be given starting at 7-8 weeks of age and every 4 weeks until the age 14-16 weeks. Then they should get their DHLP routinely once a year. Rabies vaccines should be given anywhere from 12-16 weeks of age, but not later than 16 weeks of age, depending on the area in which you live. It is unlawful to own a dog and not vaccinate them for Rabies. Rabies vaccines must be kept current. If you fail to keep your puppy UP TO DATE on vaccines and proper routine Vet care, the health warranty in this contract will be VOID.
While your puppy is young, you should avoid taking them to places where there is a lot of other dogs & puppies as they are still very susceptible to illnesses that may be fatal to puppies, but not older dogs. Please take routine stool samples of your pup’s, to your Vets when going for a check up. You should have your puppy wormed every 6 months, even with a negative sample. Just because the results are negative does not mean they do not have Parasites. It is also unlawful to own a dog 3 months of age or older without a current dog license. In some areas, if you have your puppy micro chipped, you can obtain a lifetime license for a little higher fee, only having to purchase it once. Your Vet will supply you with a form needed for proof of the micro chipping for the lifetime license. Your new puppy is partially puddle pad (paper) trained. When getting a puppy in the winter, I suggest you use this method, especially on cold days. It would only take a few minutes in the frigid temperatures to harm your new puppy.
Safety: You will also need to puppy proof your home. Tuck away electrical wires and extension cords; pick up anything that they can ingest, such as bread twist ties etc. If it is on the floor, they will find it! Please be careful with your choice of chew toys. Some are made of harder plastics and can break off, be ingested, causing an obstruction in the intestines. Often intestinal obstructions, need surgery and this can be very expensive. An obstruction can also be fatal if not taken care of immediately. Soft toys are ok. Make sure they do not have buttons, plastic eyes or noses. If they have a squeaker and the toy gets torn open, take them away, as the squeaker inside of them can be swallowed. Please keep your puppy in a clean dry crate when you are unable to supervise him or her, this is for his or her own safety. Please use common sense when caring for your new puppy, they need proper care and supervision at all times. Puppies are like children needing constant supervision. It is a big responsibility caring for a new puppy; we wish you all the best!
PLEASE be sure that if you let your puppy or dog out to go, never let him or her out loose on their own. Dachshunds are born hunters and will take off to chase almost anything, chipmunk, squirrel, rabbit or groundhog ect. The only time they should be out and off of a leash is if you have a fenced in area for them. It only takes seconds for them to run into the street and get hit by a car or get lost.
I guarantee the health of your newly purchased puppy pertaining to vital organs such as heart, liver, kidneys etc. for (ONE) year from date of birth. If problems pertaining his his/her vital organs arise, please notify me by phone within 2 business days and mail me proof of the condition (certified mail) from your licensed Vet within 5 business days. You must return your puppy, before a refund or replacement is given. I will then take the puppy to my Vet (dead of alive) for further testing and a second opinion or necropsy. If the second opinion verifies and agrees with the puppy's condition or cause of death, first choice is, I will replace your puppy with one of equal value. If there is not a puppy available at the time, I will refund you 50% of the original purchase price of your puppy, in good faith, while you are waiting for a replacement puppy. When a replacement puppy becomes available, I will then sell you the replacement puppy for 50% of the purchase price. This offer is good for one year from the date of the return of the puppy. If the puppy is in deplorable, neglected or abused condition, this will VOID the contract and authorities will be notified. You must follow the puppy lemon laws when returning a puppy to me for any reimbursements or replacements. Remember I will not guarantee or take responsibility for anything other than a life threatening condition to which was declared a defect from birth, documented by a licensed Vet. This warranty only pertains to the vital organs of the puppy, one year from the puppy's date of birth. I do not cover any baby teeth problems such as a stubborn tooth that does not want to fall out. If you are not planning to breed your dog, I highly suggest that you have your pet spayed or neutered ASAP! If it is a male puppy purchased for breeding, I will guarantee that his testicles are down and present at the time of sale, however, I will not guarantee the male’s ability to mate. In regards to a female purchased for breeding, normally they have a heat cycle between 8 to 10 months. I will not guarantee that she will stand to mate. I breed for pet purposes only and do not declare any show ability of any of my dogs. I cannot guarantee the size or weight of any puppy. The puppies are marked with AKC full registration, only if they are correct by AKC standards and have no flaws.

Thanks for selecting a puppy from Barb’s Home Raised AKC Doxies!
Return Policy: If you become unable to keep your puppy, please call me. No refunds will take place for returning an unwanted puppy or older Dachshund, I can assure you that I would find him or her a good pre-screened home. We would never want to see our dogs abandoned or as a last option, for your dog to end up in a shelter. Your dog has a much better chance to find a new home when brought back to it’s breeder, rather than being taken to an over populated shelter, with high possibilities of being euthanized. Your puppy, no matter what age, will always be welcome here, for whatever reason. I hope that it never comes to this, your newly purchased Dachshund will be a 12-15 years or longer lifetime commitment.
