I will fill this out and e-mail it to you after I receive your deposit.
I will amend this document (below) as your situation calls for and make it specific to your purchase. After you receive your e-mailed contract, please print off, sign, complete the contact information by hand, and return (via fax, snail mail, or e-mail as an attachment. Please make sure you've initialed each page at the bottom to "the seller". (**This is required on all puppies sold before "the buyer" can take possession). CONTRACTS ARE DUE ONE WEEK AFTER RECEIVING, OR WE FEEL YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS, AND WE WILL RELIST YOUR PUPPY
My mother and I have
invested years of loving care into our Pomeranians. Our puppies are socialized
from birth. Our babies are happy and well-adjusted who love to play. We are
inspected kennels by Missouri State, USDA, and AKC and are in complete compliance
with animal care regulations, conditions, and paperwork policies. Our kennels
are cleaned daily and we “spring clean” every three to four weeks. The
environment is controlled in our facilities, keeping them in the 70-degree
range year-round. Our babies have warm, clean blankets and toys to play with
and chew on. Our Pomeranians are treated monthly for heartworms as soon as they
are old enough and are wormed regularly. They are also UTD on Parvo
vaccinations. Our babies also get their teeth cleaned by a vet once a year
after they turn one. They are dear to our hearts and are loved and cared for
our puppies to be in good health at the time of sale, free from any life-threatening
congenital defects/infectious disease (ie: Heart, Kidney, Lung failure, etc.).
Everything possible has been done to keep each and every puppy/dog healthy and
happy on our premises.
This guarantee is valid
for three days once in our buyer’s care, but they MUST have their puppy into a
vet within three business days of possession to continue the health guarantee until the puppy’s first birthday. Send us the documentation as your proof.
**If the vet finds a life-threatening
(congenital) condition present, you AGREE TO NOTIFY US THE SAME DAY as your
initial vet visit, and we will replace your puppy with one (as soon as one is
available) of equal or lesser value upon return of the original puppy, reg.
papers, and written documentation and reports from the examining vet to
**The buyer is responsible for all shipping cost
and any/all vet expenses.
buyer neglects to have the puppy checked by a certified veterinarian within
THREE business days of arrival, ALL GUARANTEES ARE NULL AND VOID. Make sure to send
a copy of your vet check as proof
We will have the puppy examined and checked by a
licensed vet for overall health. A signed health certificate will be provided
within ten days of shipping.
We DO NOT GUARANTEE: the ability to breed, size,
coat color or consistency, confirmation, or disposition of the puppy at
maturity. (We will provide a guestimate of adult size based on the weigh chart,
parents’ weights, and the history of what our dogs produce.) This health
guarantee does not cover hypoglycemia, coccidiosis, giardia, allergies,
respiratory infections, luxating patellas, internal/external parasites or any
other nonlife-threatening conditions (ones that can be prevented OR traits that are not life
threatening) once the puppy has left our care. Diseases contracted due to lack
of diligence of vaccinations once they have left our care are also not covered **Hypoglycemia (sugar shock) prevention is
the responsibility of the buyer. We recommend Nutrical or similar product
(Karo Syrup) to be kept on-hand (especially with Poms under two pounds at eight
weeks) – In cases these products are not on hand, safe-for-dogs peanut butter
mixed with honey or Karo Syrup will suffice until Nutrical can be purchased. Please read about Hypoglycemia (a page on
dogs (even if purchased for show) are sold as pet quality. We do not guarantee
the ability to show in the ring.
DEWCLAWS: Most of the time, we remove dewclaws from puppies when they
are three days old (unless we forget, or it is not safe for the puppy,
etc). We do not guarantee their removal
or that they won’t grow back. We do not
charge for this service, nor will we pay for it should you wish for any
missed/regrown dewclaws to be removed.
DOGS: You agree that dogs purchased from us shall only be used on other
registered Pomeranians. Please buy from
someone else if you wish to breed designer dogs (Pomskies, Pomchis, etc.)If you
purchase a puppy from us, you are agreeing to our policy and terms concerning
our puppy contract (listed here) and guarantees! Purchase price includes:
available (but specified) puppy of your choice. (Once you choose your puppy,
you are “locked in” to that puppy – no switching after money has been received
without forfeiting the already-paid funds); AKC registration paperwork (or if
Pick of Litter breeding contractual puppy, registration paperwork of different
registries); vet check with health certificate signed by our vet prior to
shipping; UTD worm prevention, vaccinations (EIGHT WEEK puppies will have two
parvo shots at six and eight weeks, and a Bordetella – “Kennel Cough”
vaccination – unless very small – then we delay shots by our vet’s
recommendation), and if applicable, any medical treatment records. We also try
to give prevention care before the puppy leaves our care: Giardia (Metro),
Coccidia (Albon or Toltrazuril), and the babies are weaned at least one week
Our operating business hours are 8:30 a.m.
Central Standard Time to 8:30 p.m. If you need a time other than this to pick
up your baby, we must be informed (and agree) in writing no later than two days
before the date of pick up.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. If the puppy/dog does not work out, we can help you place your dog into another home. Due to our license restrictions from USDA and MO state, we need our dogs to be confined in order to be protected against contaminates that could be fatal to our unvaccinated puppies (ones too young to have yet received shots) in our kennel, so we cannot take back dogs that may have been exposed to pathogens such as parvo, etc. Our only exception is if you find a congenital defect in your purchased dog that will result in death.
BFF and Prayer Paw Puppies assume no financial responsibility after the Pomeranian leaves the
premises. This includes but is not limited to: medical expenses, landlords'
disapproval, allergy to animals, mortality, disagreement of family or spouse,
or any other reason except congenital birth defect causing death (in which you
will receive a replacement puppy of equal or lesser value). If, for some reason, you are
unhappy with your purchase, you agree to contact the owner the contract was
made with, and that you (or anyone
associated with you) will not make any
defamation statements about Prayer Paw Puppies, BFF Puppies, or any
owner/worker/family member related to the business. (A defamatory statement is a
statement that is made with the intention to harm our reputation or the
reputation of our business(es).) If defamation
statements are made, a lawyer will be contacted for libel or slander and for
breach of this contract.
Buyer realizes in signing this that this is a
Legal and Binding Document.
DEPOSITS: Any animal bought from this
seller will require a non-refundable deposit for a HOLD SERVICE which is applied
toward the total purchase. For Jean's and Jessica's puppies, the deposit is $250, and the balance is to be paid in full by the time the puppy turns eights weeks old (most will not be able to be picked up at this time due to small size). For Sheri's puppies, the deposit is $500 with balance due at 12 weeks or before. You will not
receive any refunds for hold deposits.
MUST BE AT LEAST TWO POUNDS OR EIGHT WEEKS AT SHIPPING/PICK UP TIMES. This is
for the puppy’s health. They must also be weaned and eating hard food regularly
a week prior to leaving our premises. If the puppy is to ship at eight weeks of
age, we will need full cleared payment one week (minimum) in advance to the
ship date. We need time to arrange the flight, take the puppy in for a health
* For puppies held after
eleven weeks of age, we require an additional fee of $50 to pay for any
required vaccinations (third Parvo and Rabies) IF they are being commercially
shipped. Picked-up puppies do not have
to have these shots until 16 weeks in Missouri by USDA standards. You have to have rabies after 12 weeks if they
are taken across State Lines. (Requirement
of the state of Missouri)
***ONLY IF APPROVED BY SELLER IN WRITING and there are VERY
special circumstances will we hold puppies for more than 12 weeks. There is an
additional charge of $20 a week beyond the first 12 weeks for puppies remaining
with us. We must pay for additional worming, care, cleaning, food, and space
needed. We sell puppies at eight to twelve weeks and do not plan to accommodate
puppies older than this. If it is the seller’s recommendation to hold the
puppy, the fees for holding puppies longer than 12 weeks ($20/week) will
not be charged. The buyer is responsible for the $25 microchip if we must hold
the puppies longer than is our normal policy, and the $50 rabies fee (if the
puppy must be shipped commercially or crosses state lines) or if the puppy is
16 weeks or older at time of pick-up and not going across state lines.
puppy must be PAID IN FULL by the time it is EIGHT weeks old (if you paid the
$250 deposit) or by 12 weeks (if you paid the $500 deposit). If it is not paid
for in full by that time, we will relist the puppy, and you WILL NOT BE
REFUNDED ANY MONEYS paid for hold deposits.
*LIMITED PAPERS OR NO PAPERS CLAUSE: If we sell
a puppy with “Limited Papers”, we will not release the papers / application
and/or complete the transfer until proof of spay or neuter of sold puppy
(identified below) is provided by a DVM veterinarian. We recommend at least
three to four months of age (minimum of two pounds but prefer four – this is
usually around 4-5 months) before sterilization for males and older for females
(or as your vet recommends). If you buy a puppy with limited papers, you will
not receive the application unless the spay/neuter proof is given.
BOTH LIMITED PURCHASES AND FOR PURCHASES FOR DOGS WITHOUT PAPER: If, at a
later date, the buyer decides he/she’d like full papers (providing there is
nothing that would make the dog unfit), the difference between limited (OR
non-papered price) and full price for puppy can be paid. Then full rights
application will be released to purchaser. IF an AKC application (full rights)
are purchased at a later date, an additional $ .00 will be due
before the papers will be sent. IF the puppy is a very small female, a DVM vet
must provide proof that the female is a minimum of 4.5 pounds before breeding
rights will be given. *The buyer must also realize there could be late fee
penalties that accumulate with delayed registration on the purchased puppy with
the American Kennel Club.

***PUPS TO SHIP VIA AIR: Right now we are only
using a Pet Nanny Service for flying. Prices can fluctuate depending on the
airport they are flying into. Rates are running around $500-$550. Deposits of $150 - $200 is required to book the flight. You are responsible to pay the
remainder of balance in CASH to the nanny at the airport when you pick up the
puppy. Nannies fly standby so delays are possible. *If someone other than you
will be picking up the puppy from the airport, I will also need their legal
name, physical address, and phone numbers for the flight information.
If you would prefer ground
shipment please let us know asap. We can try and schedule that for you. Prices
vary depending on the route taken.
ATTENTION: Due to scammers, PayPal is no longer
accepted for balance due. IF PayPal is used for the deposit you must send friends and family and you MUST use your own
account. IF THESE TERMS ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, THEN CHOOSE SOME OTHER
WAY TO SEND A DEPOSIT.
following payment methods are accepted:
An approved bank transfer (ZELLE), Electronic transfer (Western Union), Money order / cashier’s check- CLEARED IN
ADVANCE to pup leaving/shipped, or CASH ONLY WITH PUPPY PICK UP.
-Any money sent via snail mail (postal money
order or bank cashier’s check) MUST be sent certified, KEEP your receipt, and
SEND me a picture BEFORE you drop it in the mail.
I WILL NOT release the puppy before eight weeks or until I
feel he/she is safe to travel (eating well, etc). You need to keep food in
front of the puppy at all times to avoid hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). PLEASE keep NutriCal on hand. Shipping is always stressful and can make
them go off food. Watch to make sure he/she
eats, drinks, and goes to the bathroom within a few hours of arriving in your
home. Stress often causes Coccidia or
Guardia to “activate”. If he/ she begins
to feel ill (off food with loose stool with or without blood), take pup to the
vet and get medicine to treat. It is
easy to treat, but does require attention.
I give preventative meds, but sometimes the stress triggers it after-the-fact.
I need the full payment in my bank by ____________ if paying electronically and/or cash at pick up. I need the contract returned by __________. Please realize, I cannot release the puppy even one day
before eight weeks, or I’d risk losing my license. I CANNOT release the puppy
before the stated date. If we hold
the puppy for 10 weeks or longer, then ALL payment for this puppy is due and
must be paid by __________.

We feed Diamond Naturals – small breed puppy
(white bag with dark blue writing). You can purchase this in a feed (farm
supply) store, possibly a pet store, or on-line. We recommend feeding this and
mixing to the food brand you prefer to prevent more stress to your baby. Mix
lighter then heavier for a couple of weeks before switching entirely. We also
free feed our dogs. They have hard food in front of them at all times.
*Please print, read, and initial each page by
hand. Be sure to sign the last two pages (also by hand) and return (snail mail
or take a picture – make sure the picture shows the entire page including the
initials at the bottom and send as an attachment via e-mail) the entire
contract by DATE to the breeder. We MUST receive your contract before your
puppy can be shipped/picked up. Puppies with no contract will be relisted with
no refund of deposit (even if paid with full amount). Too many people back out,
and we are left with a puppy to sell going into their uglies.
