Adult Dog Purchase Agreement
Because we believe a dog is a special member of the family
and that buying a new dog is a commitment not to be taken lightly, Regal Shepherds has the following purchase
and refund policy. Our commitment to you is to provide quality pets but we are also obligated to our dogs to provide them
safe and happy homes. With my background in obedience training, I will be more than happy to assist you and your dog with
any questions that may arise. Please contact me by phone (405) 399-1733 or e-mail through our website: http://devoted.to/regalshepherds
with any questions you might have.
1. The buyer is required to keep an adult dog purchased from Regal
Shepherds for a period of at least 30 DAYS from date of purchase (the bonding period): this is to allow you
and your new dog a reasonable amount of time to form a bond of trust and understanding. The only exception to this policy
will be when the dog exhibits extremely destructive or agressive behavior and all
attempts to correct the problem have failed. The new owner must contact Regal
Shepherds for assistance and completely follow our instructions in an effort to correct the situation
before requesting to return the dog.
2. Regal Shepherds recommends that all newly purchased adult dogs be examined
by a licensed veterinarian of the new owners choice within four days of purchase. If any health defects or illnesses are found
that existed before date of purchase, a written statement from the doctor and their
phone number must be provided to Regal Shepherds before any arrangements will be discussed. No
dog may be returned due to illness after 10 days from date of purchase.
3. At the end
of the mandatory bonding period; if not satisfied with your dog, you must contact Regal Shepherds by phone or e-mail within
7 days after the bonding period and the dog may be returned for full refund of purchase price no later than 10 days after
the bonding period (exception-see items 4B and 4C). NO DOG MAY BE RETURNED WITHOUT CALLING IN ADVANCE UNDER ANY SITUATION.
4. There are three situations in which absolutely no refunds will be
A. If the dog is returned before the end of the mandatory bonding period (exceptions-see
items 1 & 2).
B. If, upon return, the dog exhibits signs of
mistreatment or illness due to owner neglect.
C. Failure to deal with Regal Shepherds in good
faith. Examples: failing to report a problem with your dog and attempting to return it after 30 days or
failing to follow instructions to correct the dog's behavior.
5.Afte r 40 DAYS from date
of purchase, a dog may be returned without refund at Regal Shepherd's discretion and upon signing
a return agreement. In this situation, the dog will be examined by a veterinarian of Regal Shepherd's choice at
the returning party's expense. The returning party will also be held responsible for any medical treatment
the dog may require.
