Bill of sale and Health Guarantee-sample
All Cavaliers bred and sold by Heart 2 Heart Cavaliers are guaranteed to be healthy at the time of sale. For Purpose of this agreement, once the puppy leaves the sellers premises, it is under buyer's control. Notice of any problems with said puppy must be received within 72 hours or this guarantee is null and void.
I.) All our puppies have had a comprehensive examination done by a licensed veterinarian. They will have had the appropriate vaccines for their age, and wormed.
Please be advised that until your puppy has had its full set of vaccinations it is susceptible to certain illnesses, and therefore should be kept out of areas where other dogs and other animals have been. This would include parks, pet stores, and even your neighbor’s yards. While at the vet, keep your puppy on your lap or in a crate, away from other animals, and off the floor where sick animals have been. When your veterinarian tells you the vaccines are complete, you can begin to show off your new family member.
II.) There are no known problems with our bloodlines, and it is unlikely that you will experience any problems with your new puppy. Nevertheless, we would encourage all new owners to keep us informed of any problems that occur with your Cavalier throughout its lifetime. We very much like to stay in touch with our new owners. We would love to see pictures of your puppy as he/she grows.
III). If at any time during the lifetime of your Cavalier, should you find that you are no longer able to care for your dog or give it the quality of care it deserves, you must first advise us so that we can either take the dog back or give you assistance in finding it a new home. This applies regardless of the age of the Cavalier. Please do not give any Cavalier away or send it to a shelter. Once you receive your puppy it is up to you, the buyer, to provide a safe, healthy environment which includes a nutritional diet, exercise, veterinary care, professional dental cleanings as needed, time and love. Seller has the right to take back any puppy if the buyer is not providing the puppy with the best of care. Please educate yourself before adopting a puppy, seller cannot guarantee the ability to house train the puppy, remember this is a baby, and as such should be given love, care, and attention. Puppy proof your home to prevent chewing accidents and provide chew toys for the appropriate chewing needs of the puppy. We recommend that you purchase a book on this breed before acquiring the puppy to help prepare your with any questions or issues you might have with training. I will provide you with many helpful training materials to get you started. Puppies are not stuffed animals and require training, if your not up to the time and dedication that it takes, please don’t adopt a puppy.
IV.) Seller assumes no responsibility for the care or protection of puppy after it leaves our premises. We also have no responsibility for medical expenses incurred, Landlords disapproval, family allergy to animal, disagreement of family members, and other events beyond our control. There is no guarantee to the adult size or if he/she will be of show quality.
V.) AKC Registration Papers: My puppies are sold on limited registration, spay/neuter contract. The purpose of this agreement is that I want my puppies to go to loving pet homes, where they are loved and adored for life. There are many health benefits of spaying a female prior to her first heat, greatly reducing mammary cancer, not dealing with the mess of heat cycles, or temperament issues. In addition, neutering males eliminates any bad behaviors that may develop from an intact male such as marking, temperament issues, or escaping from your home. As a responsible breeder I am looking for homes that are not wanting to breed a dog for the wrong reasons, breeding dogs that shouldn't be bred, or mixing this breed with another breed. I want to preserve this amazing breed, and for it to remain true to what a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is suppose to be. All puppies sold on Limited registration will receive their AKC papers as soon as proof of spay/neuter has been received from your veterinarian. Spay/neuter is usually around 6-10 months of age, so it is encouraged you mail out proof of spay/neuter immediately after. There is an additional fee from AKC if registration papers are mailed out after the puppy is 1 year of age. All spay and neuter costs are the buyers responsibility. Please remember, owning a pet requires time,dedication, and financial obligation for their care. Please consider wisely if you are ready for the responsibility required, prior to making the commitment.
VI.) Cavaliers are an indoor dog and thoroughly enjoy the company of their family. They should never live outdoors.
VII). Cavaliers are like potato chips, one isn't enough. If you decide in the future to add another Cavalier to your family, we would love to be apart of adding an additional Cavalier to your family!

Feed a good quality dog food for optimum health, such as Science Diet, Royal Canin, or Purina Pro Plan.
