Animal Adoption Contract
Buyer Agrees to the following:
If you place a deposit and / or purchase a puppy/dog/livestock from Rehoboth Farms of NC LLC, you agree to the following terms of this contract.
1. Buyer agrees to see a state certified vet within 72 hour Grace Period upon puppy pick up. If you want to return the puppy during this time period, buyer agrees to return puppy at buyer’s expense. You cannot return the puppy after 3 days (unless to surrender the animal) and seller is not responsible for any expenses that arise in the 3 day grace period or after.
2. Buyer agrees that the Breeder is not responsible at any time for any veterinary bills or any other financial expense, or for any health-related issue, related to the puppy/dog once the puppy leaves our premises, or that may be the result of an animal purchased from Rehoboth Farms of NC LLC. Rehoboth Farms of NC LLC has no control over animal’s care, feeding, housing, exercise, medication, etc. after animal leaves our premises; therefore Buyer agrees that Breeder shall not be held liable in any way whatsoever for any health-related issues after leaving our premises. Buyer shall not request “replacement puppy” should original puppy experience health-related issues after leaving our premises.
Additionally, puppies raised in a kennel environment will often contract worms, either from contact with puppy feces or simply by nursing from their mother, which can in itself transmit certain types of worms. Treating puppies for worms is very common, and Rehoboth Farms of NC LLC treats our puppies at least 4x with Pyrantel Pomoate between 3-8 weeks of age. Buyer agrees not to return puppy simply because puppy has an easily treatable condition such as worms. Buyer's vet should easily be able to diagnose and prescribe any of a number of good deworming meds to treat the puppy. Deworming is a continual, lifelong treatment for dogs, especially those living outside guarding livestock.
3. Buyer agrees to continue inoculations based on veterinarian’s care.
4. Buyer agrees to continue to treat for worms, parasites, heart worm, rabies, mosquitoes and fleas.
5. Buyer agrees to never abuse, neglect, tie or chain dog, or leave the puppy/dog in a kennel/crate for a long period of time, unless for nightly sleeping, or training.
6. Dog should have access to outdoors daily. Buyer agrees to give puppy/dog daily exercise for the rest of puppy/dog’s life.
7. Buyer agrees to properly take care of the dog: feed a high quality, high energy large puppy food formula, puppies should eat a high protein puppy formula 3-4 times daily for 12-18 months, provide water at all times, and proper shelter from the elements.
8. Buyer agrees to keep puppy on a natural diet that is high in protein and fat (min 27% protein / min 15% fat), made for a large breed dog that contains no wheat, no soy and no corn for the rest of dog’s life.
9. If Buyer cannot properly take care of puppy / dog, Buyer agrees to contact Breeder to surrender the puppy / dog, giving Breeder first right of refusal. If Breeder does not have facilities available to properly care for the puppy / dog on the property, or for any other reason, Breeder is not required to take the puppy / dog back. If Breeder takes the puppy / dog back, Breeder will re-home the puppy / dog. No monies will be reimbursed. Breeder is not responsible for any reason for taking back puppies / dogs after 30 days off Breeder property.
10. Should Breeder agree to take back a female dog originally purchased with Full AKC Registration / Breeding Rights, and said female dog is pregnant, Breeder will not “split” proceeds with Seller who is surrendering the female dog. All proceeds from sale of litter belong solely to Breeder.
11. The Buyer shall have the puppy spayed or neutered before it reaches the age of eight (8) months, unless given permission by Seller (Full Registration adoption only).

Buyer agrees that any refunds or damages due shall not exceed the purchase price of the animal purchased.

25. Buyer understands that should the need arise to move other buyers from other litters that did not produce enough puppies to fulfill their order, into the Buyer’s litter, that may result in Buyer moving down in the Selection Order.
