Matchless Kennels guarantees that this German Wirehaired puppy is healthy upon delivery to the buyer. Every puppy is sold with a written health guarantee that is in effect for seven (7) days after the puppy leaves the kennel property. To validate the health guarantee, the buyer must have the puppy examined by his/her veterinarian within 48 hours after receiving it. If for any reason the buyer is not satisfied with the health of his/her puppy, the buyer may return the puppy at his/her expense for a full purchase price refund, provided that Matchless Kennels is given a copy of the veterinarian’s exam and findings. All veterinary costs for the puppy after departure from Matchless Kennels, no matter what the reason and including the seven (7) day period, is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Matchless Kennels puppies are guaranteed to be functionally free of hereditary genetic diseases up to one (1) year of age. If your puppy develops a life-threatening or life-altering illness that is found to be hereditary in nature (as diagnosed by your veterinarian) before the age of twelve (12) months, I will (at my option) do one of two things: (1) replace the puppy from another mutually agreed to comparable breeding when such a breeding becomes available or (2) refund the full purchase price of the puppy. In order to receive the full purchase price refund, the puppy must be returned. If the buyer chooses to keep the puppy as a pet and elects not to receive a replacement dog, a refund of one-half (1/2) the original purchase price will be made pending confirmation from the buyer’s veterinarian that the puppy has been spayed or neutered. The buyer must provide written documentation from his/her veterinarian that the puppy has been altered.
In order for Matchless Kennels to fulfill the puppy guarantee, the following conditions must be met:
1. The buyer must provide Matchless Kennels written notification of the puppy’s health
problem(s), including a written report from the buyer’s veterinarian documenting the nature of the problem immediately after discovery of the condition.
2. The puppy must be returned before it will be replaced or a refund granted. All shipping expenses will be responsibility of the owner for the dog being returned as well as the replacement dog.
3. The puppy must not be older than twelve (12) months of age.
4. The buyer must be the puppy’s original and only owner.
5. The puppy must not have been bred.
6. If the puppy is returned, ownership and the AKC and NAVHDA pedigree will be transferred back to Matchless Kennels.
7. Matchless Kennels may request that the puppy's owner obtain a second veterinarian’s
opinion. The costs for additional opinions will be the responsibility of the buyer.
8. Matchless Kennels is not responsible for costs pertaining to the care of the puppy once it leaves the property. The puppy must be reared with good care, shelter, quality nutrition, and vaccinations administered at the recommended frequency. The puppy must not be allowed to become overweight or be overworked. The puppy should show no signs of neglect or cruelty.
9. Any of the above requirements may be waived at the discretion of Matchless Kennels.
If at any time during the first twelve (12) months the puppy is sold or placed in another home this guarantee becomes null and void. All Matchless Kennels puppies are sold in good faith and no puppy is sold for any specific use or guarantee of performance such as brood bitch, stud dog, show dog, field trial, or hunt test competitor. Matchless Kennels, at their discretion, has occasionally offered a charitable discount should it benefit a new comer, the pup, or the sport. We reserve the right to waive the health guarantee on discounted pups.
All puppies or adult dogs sold by Matchless Kennels must bear the kennel name, “Matchless”, in their AKC and/or NAVHDA registered name if either of the following are intended by the purchaser or subsequent purchasers:
1. The dog is to be used in a future breeding program.
2. The dog is to be entered in AKC, NAVHDA, or VHDF hunt tests.
If a Matchless Kennels dog is used for the above descibed objectives without adhering to this naming convention, the dog and/or it’s progeny, at the sole discretion of Matchless Kennels, automatically revert to ownership by Matchless Kennels and are subject to collection at any time without prior notice. If any waiver of the convention is sought by the purchaser it must be agreed to and documented by Matchless Kennels prior to the sale.
All puppies or adult dogs sold by Matchless Kennels bearing a AKC or NAVHDA the registered kennel name of “Matchless" are transferred to the buyer with the unalterable, non-waiveable condition that such sale and any subsequent sales to others are conditional upon the animal never being used to produce non-registered progeny. If the Matchless Kennels dog (either male or female) is used for such purpose, whether by the original purchaser or some subsequent purchaser, at the sole discretion of Matchless Kennels, ownership automatically reverts to Matchless Kennels and the dog will be subject to collection at any time with no prior notice. It is the responsibility of the original purchaser, and any subsequent owner(s), to make absolutely certain that any subsequent owners are aware of these unalterable conditions of transfer. By signing this Guarantee and Sales Agreement, the buyer acknowledges having read this document in its entirety and agrees to all terms and conditions as set forth within.
