Seller does NOT warrant the following:
under no condition is the seller responsible for loss or death due to
Molera - It is acceptable for a Chihuahua to have a molera,
and should not be considered a flaw.
Coccidia, Giardia or Worms - Many
puppies are prone to outbreak of either coccidia and/or giardia under stressful
circumstances. The symptoms can arise in a 12 hour period, and cannot always be
prevented by the seller, because there are no signs until the puppy is
stressed, and their immune system drops. All precautions have been made, but
the buyer should take the puppy to the vet immediately if puppy develops
unusual stool, begins vomiting, or has loss of appetite.
Trachea - This is a common thing in chihuahuas when they get excited, and has
not been found to impose a health risk.

to all the terms of this agreement and acknowledge it as legal and
We agree to sell the following:
Sex: □ Male □
AKC Number: __________________________________
Full/Limited AKC: ____________
This puppy has been administered,
as indicated in the medical record, the following vaccinations and de-worming
before leaving our home/kennel.

The amount of two hundred dollars of the deposit made towards the
purchase of a puppy is NON-REFUNDABLE. Full payment of the balance due must be
paid on or before the date on which the pup reaches eight (8) weeks of age.
Failure to do so forfeits the Buyer’s deposit and reservation of the puppy.
Refund of deposit will only be available under the following
(1) Should the
reserved puppy be found by our veterinarian to have a life threatening
abnormality (see Health Guarantee below for definition of life threatening and
non-life threatening abnormalities) before placement of the puppy with
the Buyer of before shipment of the puppy to the Buyer, or (2) should the puppy
die before placement of the puppy to the Buyer and/or before shipment of the
puppy to the Buyer, the Buyer may request a refund of deposit or apply the
deposit to another available puppy.
The parties of this contract agree
that the dog identified on page one (1) shall carry the “DSK” prefix to its
name for “DSK Chihuahuas”. The “DSK” prefix will be added to the AKC
papers by the breeder before the papers are transferred to the new owner(s). It

dog’s registered name. This is enforceable by the AKC per this
FEEDING YOUR NEW PUPPY
puppies/dogs eat Purina One Puppy. Although bringing your new puppy home is the
most exciting day for you, it is not exciting for the puppy. The puppy is
leaving everything that it has known, including its dam and littermates. Expect
your puppy to go through a period of stress. Signs of stress could include
crying, refusal to eat, or loose stools. Please give the puppy some time to
adjust. Please keep the puppy’s new environment quiet and calm the first few
days. This will make the adjustment easier for the puppy and hasten bonding
between you and your new puppy. Treats are of whole or pressed rawhide and are
great for keeping teeth free of plaque. We suggest that toys be of soft nylon
or cloth-like materials that are machine washable, instead of latex rubber that
can be punctured or shredded.
We have provided the following vaccination and
de-worming schedule. At first, it is best to avoid taking your puppy to the
park, pet store, walks, etc. Your puppy is not fully immunized against diseases
such as Parvo until the complete series of vaccinations is administered.
Usually this is completed by 16 weeks of age. Parvo, for example, is highly
contagious and can be carried in and transferred on peoples shoes. Your puppy
could easily contract Parvo if taken to places where other dogs frequent. We
STRONGLY SUGGEST that you follow through the vaccination and de-worming
schedule recommended by your veterinarian. Negligence could result in sickness
or death of your puppy. The guarantee does not cover parasites, external or
internal, Giardia, Hypoglycemia, Hepatitis, Parvo, Kennel Cough, Distemper,
Rabies, Coccidiosis, or Corona. The proper immunizations have been administered
and the Seller cannot be held responsible if the puppy is exposed to contagious
parasites or diseases after leaving our kennel. The Buyer is responsible for
ALL veterinary costs/expenses once the puppy has left the Seller’s
PUPPY GUARANTEE – ONE YEAR
gives the Buyer one (1) year health guarantee against LIFE THREATENING
abnormalities, such as a heart murmur or liver shunt which are believed to be
hereditary. If any abnormality that could be life threatening is found the
Seller must be notified immediately. If the Buyer does not notify the Seller
immediately of any life-threatening abnormality as diagnosed by a licensed
veterinarian the Buyer shall not have recourse against the Seller. If the puppy
is found to have a life-threatening congenital or hereditary defect, the Buyer
must take the puppy for a second opinion by a different licensed veterinarian
who is not associated with or in practice with the original examining
veterinarian. The Buyer must provide the Seller with a written statement from
both veterinarians before a replacement puppy will be considered. Both
veterinarians must find that the puppy has the same defect and that said defect
is life threatening. CASH REFUNDS ARE NEVER GIVEN. If the puppy dies before the
expiration of the one (1) year period the Buyer must have the puppy autopsied.
The Buyer must provide a statement from the veterinarian along with the autopsy
results before a replacement puppy will be considered. The Buyer is responsible
for all costs incurred, with all veterinarians, for any and all veterinarian
visits once the Buyer has taken possession of the puppy. If the puppy is found
to have a life-threatening defect and is living, the puppy must be returned to
the Seller, including all paperwork and AKC papers, before a replacement puppy
will be considered or issued. The Buyer is responsible for all costs incurred
with returning the puppy, including shipping costs. The Seller will have 12
months to replace the puppy with another puppy of equal value and
This guarantee DOES NOT COVER THE
These are minor flaws that in some cases can be
corrected by a veterinarian; others are common traits of the
UNEVEN BITE: This is not life-threatening. As
the puppy matures, a periodically check of its bite must be made, as sometimes
puppy teeth will remain and must be removed as adult teeth come
EARS NOT STANDING: This is not life
COAT COLOR: The coat color can change as
the puppy matures.
COAT LENTGH: We try to accurately
determine what coat length the puppy will have at maturity, but in rare
instances, our determination may be incorrect. There is no guarantee on coat
SIZE: We try to accurately estimate the size
the puppy will be at maturity, but in some instances our determination may be
incorrect. There is no guarantee on size at
TRACHEA: This is often called a reverse sneeze
and is not life threatening.
HERNIAS: There is no
guarantee on hernias of any category.
seller does not guarantee the presence of both testicles nor does the Seller
guarantee that both testicles will descend. If only one (1) testicle descends
or none descends the Seller cannot be held responsible. Sometimes at eight (8)
weeks and even twelve (12) weeks of age, the puppy is too young to determine if
both testicles are present. Testicles can descend as late as six (6) months of
ABILITY TO WHELP OR SIRE A LITTER: The Seller does
not guarantee the ability of a puppy to sire a litter or to whelp a
PATELLAR LUXATION: There is no guarantee
regarding patellar luxation and the Seller shall not be responsible if the
puppy, at any age during its lifetime, develops patellar
MOLERA: The molera is often called a “soft
spot”. By the age of 1-1 ½ years only 16% of moleras are closed. About 50% of
moleras never close. This is a common Chihuahua trait and is not life
HYPOGLYCEMIA: Often referred to as “Sugar
Drops”. Chihuahuas have a small fat reserve around their liver making them
prone to “Sugar Drops”. The smaller the Chihuahua, the higher the risk will be
that the Chihuahua will have this condition. This is a risk that has been
explained to the Buyer and the Buyer, upon signing this contract, agrees to
accept the costs along with the risk of hypoglycemia. The parents of this puppy
do not have hypoglycemia and this is not an inherited disorder. Special
instructions are provided below on how to identify symptoms of hypoglycemia.
The Seller does not guarantee that your puppy will never develop symptoms of
PARASITES, EXTERNAL OR INTERNAL: The
Seller is not responsible for parasites, either external or internal. The
Seller has administered all of the preventions that are recommended by our
veterinarian. The Seller is not responsible for what the puppy is exposed to
after leaving our home/kennel, as parasites are extremely contagious and can be
contracted after leaving the Seller.
GIARDIA, HEPATITIS, PARVO,
KENNEL COUGH, DISTEMPER, RABIES, COCCIDIOSIS, AND CORONA: The Seller
is not responsible if the puppy contracts and/or develops Giardia, Hepatitis,
Parvo, Kennel Cough, Distemper, Rabies, Coccidiosis, or Corona. The Seller has
administered the proper vaccinations for this puppy according to its age and
shall not be responsible for what the puppy could have been exposed to after
leaving the Seller’s home/kennel. These are extremely contagious and can be
contracted after leaving the Seller. Coccidia and Hypoglycemia can be brought
on by the stress of going to a new home.
Puppies that are usually affected by Hypoglycemia
are the toy breeds weighing (3) pounds and under. Hypoglycemia most frequently
happens between the ages of six (6) weeks and six (6) months, although
Hypoglycemia can occur at any age. Keep Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat on hand at all
times in case of an emergency. Keep your puppy warm. Contact your Veterinarian
immediately. Symptoms of low blood sugar are listed below:
limp, puppy does not lift his head by itself very easily, lethargy, lack of
coordination, staggering, stumbling, falling, slowed heart rate, body
temperature drops, mouth is stiff and gums may become white.
It is the
responsibility of the Buyer to assure proper care if such a condition should
arise. The Buyer agrees that the Seller is NOT responsible should a sugar drop
occur. The Buyer agrees to seek proper veterinary care, as well as to
preventative measures, such as insuring that fresh food and water are ALWAYS
available for your puppy.
To assure that our breeding stock does not
have the conditions stated above, we have them examined regularly by a licensed
veterinarian, but we can in no way guarantee that the conditions listed above
will never occur during the lifetime of your Chihuahua. The Seller will not be
held responsible in any way if any of these conditions should arise. The Buyer
has read and understands this contract and has agreed to take full
responsibility if any such condition arises at any time.
Please keep this puppy indoors, providing access to a
fenced in yard, and never chain or tie your puppy out. Provide adequate living
quarters. Do not let the puppy live in a cage or crate. This puppy is sold with
the understanding it will be properly socialized, live indoors and become a
part of the family. The Buyer agrees to maintain a safe environment for the
puppy. The puppy is to NEVER be placed in an animal shelter, rescue group, or
sold to a research lab or similar facility. Your home is now the puppy’s loving
This puppy is now the responsibility of the Buyer. If at
any time, you do not want the puppy or cannot keep the puppy you may return it
to the Seller. We gladly have a place in our home for any puppy that we have
bred if circumstances arise that you cannot continue to keep the Chihuahua.
Should the puppy be returned to the Seller, the veterinarian’s records and AKC
registration papers must be surrendered along with the puppy to the Seller.
This puppy shall NOT be sold for profit by the Buyer under any circumstances
and is an offense to be prosecuted by law. The Buyer agrees that the Seller
will NOT provide a refund when the puppy is returned to the Seller. Every
effort will be made to place the Chihuahua in another home or the Chihuahua
will remain with the Seller.
Seller is in no way responsible for the death or injury of the puppy or loss of
the puppy during transport. The Seller agrees to insure the puppy for the
purchase price amount or up to the highest amount that can be insured if the
purchase price exceeds the maximum amount the airline allows for insurance. The
