To protect their dogs, lines and livelihood, breeders should sell their puppies with contracts. This simple piece of paperwork can save a lot of heartache and ensure the buyer understands what is expected of them. I know Mike and Mis use a modified contract that was commissioned by a lawyer for another working dog organization and has been successfully upheld in court. But at a minimum, approved breeders are required to have pet quality pups spayed or neutered. And yes, it is the breeder's responsibility to enforce that.

Here are a few examples of spay/neuter contract. The ones from rescues could easily be adapted for a breeder. ... r-Contract ... r-______-I ... ertains-to

Here is the outline for a complete puppy contract for Border Collies. It is a pretty good guideline for what you can do as far as paperwork is concerned.

This contract loosely follows that model.

And this is an example of a contract common among AKC affiliated breeders. I'm primarily posting it because it was drafted and is enforced in Texas. Again, it is just a guideline, and a Lacy breeder would be expected to modify it to fit the breed and their program.

For breeders who are hesitant to attach a contract to their offspring (puppies)
out of fear of lost sales..don't worry!! If your pup is truly going to the right home, the new owner will have NO problem signing and abiding by a contract.

As a potential buyer, contracts protect you as much as the Kennel & line your buying from.
So don't be put off by a contract, it merely shows that the breeder you are in negotiations with really cares about their pups now and forever...not just until the sale is finale and your money is in their pocket! ;)

This really is a positive step for breeders and owners alike.
It is a show of honesty, integrity & sincerity by both parties. That makes for good business
sense and ownership. :)
