Buyer as referred to below shall refer to:______________________
Seller as referred to below shall refer to : Katie Halfen Mackey DVM

1. Buyer agrees to use the word Casamoko in the puppy’s registered name, and such must appear on the puppy's
individual AKC/CKC registration papers, or buyer voids all warrantees.

2. Puppy is of sound temperament and is in excellent health at time of sale.

3. Puppy has been examined by a licensed veterinarian (seller) and has had first vaccinations and worming procedures.

4. During the 72-hour period following sale, the seller urges the buyer to take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian, at
the buyer’s expense, for an examination if the buyer doesn’t feel the puppy is in top health.

5. The seller guarantees this puppy against OFA Moderate Hip Dysplasia and until the puppy is 2-1/2 years old or has
been bred. On your puppy’s second birthday, take him/her to a veterinarian with experience in OFAs to have the hips
and elbows x-rayed. Send the x-rays to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, Inc. (OFA). They will rate your dog’s
hips and elbows.

If your dog is positive for moderate or severe hip dysphasia or UAP of the elbows, you will be compensated, with the
following stipulations: Proof of claim must be supported by the OFA report, at the buyer’s expense. If proven, the buyer
need NOT return the puppy, but must submit a certificate of spaying or neutering before compensation will be
considered. Compensation shall consist of a replacement of the puppy with one of equal value or the value of the dog if
the seller sees fit. (If the original puppy is purchased as pet quality, it will be replaced with a puppy that is pet quality).

6. Purchase of puppy is understood to be a commitment to this dog for its entire life. The buyer agrees to contact the
seller if for any reason, including death, divorce, separation, moving or eviction, the buyer can no longer keep this dog.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES is this dog to be placed in a humane society, rescue or animal shelter or the seller shall
be entitled to press charges against the buyer for the purchase price of the dog and any expenses incurred while re-
obtaining the dog.  The buyer agrees to take the dog back to Casamoko Shepherds if the buyer cannot keep the dog
for any reason and will not try to resell the dog or dispose of the dog in any fashion or again the seller is allowed to
press charges against the buyer for the purchase price of the dog and any expenses incurred with reclaiming the dog
as well as any medical expenses incurred for the dog.

7. Buyer agrees never to use an electronic fence or “shock” training collar or buyer voids all warrantees.  If debarking is
being considered, the buyer must contact the seller before undergoing this procedure or all warrantees are void.

8. No cash refunds will be made at any time except obedience, agility, herding, or tracking title rebates, as noted below
in No. 9.

to any facility without the owner being present until the puppy is 12 months of age.  The buyer agrees not to take the
puppy to doggy day care or dog parks until 6 months of age, to avoid injury or behavioral problems in the puppy.
