The following agreement is between ______________ (breeder), hereafter referred to as "Seller", and ______________, hereafter referred to as "Purchaser".

In consideration of a purchase price of five-hundred dollars ($500.00), of which one-hundred dollars ($100.00) is a nonrefundable deposit, the Seller transfers all rights in fee simple determinable, privileges and responsibilities associated with the ownership of the female/male puppy of the Border Collie breed to Purchaser as of the date and time specified below with the following conditions subsequent:

1) Purchaser agrees to neuter/spay the puppy specified above in accordance with the attached neuter/spay agreement.

2) Purchaser agrees to notify Seller in writing by certified mail if the puppy displays CEA (collie eye anomaly), PRA (progressive retinal atrophy), CPRA (central progressive retinal atrophy), or HD (hip dysplasia), as determined by a licensed veterinarian at any time during the life of the puppy.

3) Purchaser agrees to exercise normal care in maintaining this puppy's health. Routine preventative care includes the following: annual physical exams by a licensed veterinarian, annual vaccinations against DHLPP, annual fecal exams, continual heartworm prevention, and rabies vaccinations as mandated by the Purchaser's state and county of residence. Normal care assumes that the Purchaser will feed only recognized brands of dog food. If it is reported and confirmed that this dog is being abused or neglected by Purchaser, rights and ownership of the dog will automatically terminate and revert back to Seller who may immediately assume possession of the dog. Seller's reasonable attorney's fees for recovery of the dog will be paid by the Purchaser.

Purchaser has the right to the provision of a State of Florida Certificate of Veterinary Inspection for Small Animals with the purchase of this puppy. Purchaser agrees to pay the fees for acquisition of this certificate. These fees are not included in the above mentioned purchase price.

Purchaser has the right to return the puppy to Seller at any time for credit in the amount of the purchase price toward the acquisition of another animal from Seller; or for a refund of the purchase price less the nonrefundable deposit.

Seller agrees to register the puppy with the ABC and pay the related registration fees within one month of the date of this agreement. Registration forms will be completed by the ABC, generally within 6-8 weeks, and the registration form will be mailed to the Seller. Upon receipt of the registration, Seller agrees to transfer ownership to the Purchaser and mail the completed registration to Purchaser. Upon receipt of the transfer registration, Purchaser is responsible for the puppy's continued registration and should it be lost, is responsible for all replacement registration fees. Please realize that replacement may not always be possible.

NOTE: Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this registration is a limited registration. All offspring of purebred, registered parents are entitled to registration papers. However, in the event that the Purchaser does not have the puppy properly neutered/spayed, any offspring issuing from this pet-quality puppy are not eligible for registration with the ABC, AKC, or UKC.

If at any time this puppy is to be sold or given away, the breeder is to be notified in writing by certified mail and given first option to buy the puppy back at the original purchase price less the nonrefundable deposit.

This dog is not to be placed in a shelter or humane society. Failure to follow this requirement will entitle Seller to a monetary fine in the amount of $400, paid by Purchaser, as a result of breach of contract. Seller's reasonable attorney's fees for recovery of the dog or collection of the fine will be paid by the Purchaser. Additionally, rights and ownership of the dog will automatically terminate and revert back to Seller who may immediately assume possession of the dog.

We the undersigned have read, understood and agree with the terms of this contract.
