is as stated below.


The BREEDER hereby sells to the BUYER, for the amount of $___________, one basset puppy. The non refundable deposit of $________

BREEDER Warrants:

Based on the known genetics of your puppy's pedigree, the puppy is warranted by the BREEDER to be in excellent health and free from communicable diseases. It becomes up to the BUYER to take the newly purchased puppy/dog to a licensed veterinarian within a period of 72 hours from the date and time of purchase. This assures the BUYER that the puppy's/dog's condition is properly represented. All veterinary costs after leaving our kennel, no matter what the reason, and including the 72 hour period, are the responsibility of the BUYER. The veterinary visit is mandatory to maintain the warrantee.

The BREEDER does NOT warrant the following on ANY puppy/dog sold:

Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD), Elbow Dysplasia

Entropian, Ectropian, Cataracts or any other eye condition not listed above

Behavioural problems or personality traits not associated with temperament

Poor training or uncontrolled dogs

Any type of parasite the puppy may acquire from the date of sale and onward

Conditions not set out herein

Should a life threatening illness or birth defect be diagnosed by a licensed veterinarian in the 72 hour time period, it must be reported to the BREEDER within that 72 hour time period as well. Written proof of same from the veterinarian must be submitted to the BREEDER within 5 days (on official veterinarian letterhead) in order to obtain a refund of the purchase price of the puppy/dog minus the deposit of $_______. The puppy/dog must be returned to the BREEDER to receive the refund, as well as with this contract. It is the BUYERS responsibility to return the puppy/dog at their own expense to this kennel.

If all the contract conditions have been adhered to and suitable evidence can be produced of a life threatening illness ( within the 72 hours ), the puppy may be returned to the BREEDER in good, clean condition at the BUYERS expense. The Registration papers (signed over to the BREEDER) as well as this signed contract and any veterinary records must accompany the puppy/dog. A puppy of the same sex and quality, selected by the BREEDER, will be guaranteed to the BUYER from another litter, though not necessarily from the same bitch nor from the next litter to arrive.

The BREEDER reserves the right to refund the BUYER his original price (minus the amount of the non-refundable deposit of $ ________) of the puppy should the BREEDER decide not to place another puppy with the BUYER. Alternatively, where the BUYER chooses to keep the said dog, the BREEDER shall, at the option of the BREEDER, and upon proof of spay/neuter, reimburse the purchaser an amount determined by the BREEDER in line with the condition and its effects on the dog's life. In any case, this amount shall not exceed, in total and in combination for all conditions, a lifetime maximum of one half the purchase price of the puppy. The BREEDER may request that the BUYER obtain further opinions in the case of x-rays, eye and/or heart examinations. Obtaining additional opinions will be the responsibility of the BUYER. The BREEDER may request to have any reports or x-rays mailed or shipped to the BREEDER's veterinarian. Under no circumstances will the BREEDER be responsible for the cost of any veterinarian bills for any reason whatsoever, nor will the BREEDER be responsible for the cost of surgery for any reason whatsoever.

I strongly urge BUYERS to continue the pet insurance to help defray the cost of veterinary care no matter what choice you make.  


The puppy/dog shall be maintained in good condition, including adherence to a regular immunization schedule, heartworm prevention, good diet and a clean safe environment

We are confident that our dogs will provide you and your family with many years of joyful companionship and happy memories. If circumstances should arise that you cannot keep your puppy/dog, the BREEDER must be informed and shall reserve the right to take the puppy back, no matter the age, at the BUYERS expense with no compensation to the BUYER. The original registration papers must accompany the dog AND be signed over to the BREEDER.

The BUYER agrees that they are buying a puppy on a LIMITED REGISTRATION. This means you cannot breed this puppy. The BUYER agrees that they are purchasing this puppy with NO intention of breeding. Should this puppy be bred without permission from the BREEDER, the BUYER has the option of being compensated in the amount of $10,000 in damages each time this puppy is bred without permission from the BREEDER. Puppy must be spayed or neutered between the ages of 10-14 months. If the puppy is spayed / neutered before they are 10 months old, this voids the warranty. Canadian Kennel Club papers will be withheld until proof of spay/neuter is received by the BREEDER. This is in the form of the receipt of surgery from the veterinarian who performed the surgery.

The BUYER agrees that the puppy will be fed Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach or an equivalent for the term of this contract (24 months). If Pro Plan or equivalent is not being fed, the contract is null and void, unless a food change has been discussed with the BREEDER prior to the food being changed.


Any physical injury or mistreatment to the puppy/dog VOIDS this warranty

Health warranty is NON TRANSFERABLE to any new owner

All puppies (that will reside in Canada) are started on Pet Insurance with Pet Secure (1800-268-1169) that is activated in the BUYERS name for 6 weeks of health coverage from the date and time the puppy is picked up from the BREEDER.

Breeders liabilty is limited to a maximum amount of the purchase price of the dog minus the non refundable deposit of $_500___

Once the puppy/dog leaves the care of Autumn Blaze, unforeseen events can and do occur from accident OR neglect that can change the growth or temperament of the puppy/dog. ALL are beyond the control of the BREEDER

Autumn Blaze Bassets also offers all BUYERS a discount (to be determined by BREEDER) on a second puppy from another litter within 5 years of this dated contract, if they so choose so.
