We require that both ASCA and AKC registration papers be filled out(if provided) and sent in for THIS AUSSIE by the age of 6 months old.  And a legible copy that shows the numbers and registered names are sent to us for our records.

Buyer agrees that if said dog is **show quality** that buyer will show such dog to the best of their ability and/OR have a handler show such dog. Buyer agrees that no dog shall be bred or used for breeding prior to 2 years of age, and that Eyes must be CERF'd normal and hips must be x-rayed and sent for evaluation to OFA, with an acceptable rating of excellent, good or fair, prior to any breeding. IF THIS DOG IS BRED BEFORE ABOVE HEALTH CLEARANCES ARE DONE, THEN BUYER ASSUMES THAT THIS DOG IS HEALTHY AND ACCEPTS FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS DOG AND HIS/HER OFFSPRING AND THAT BREEDER IS NO LONGER OBLIGED TO GUARANTEE THIS DOG SINCE HE/SHE WAS USED BEFORE HEALTH CLEARANCES WERE DONE BY PROFESSIONALS and therefore this guarantee becomes NULL and VOID.

Buying a "show quality dog" does not guarantee that said dog will become a champion, only that this Breeder feels that he/she possesses the qualities to become a Champion. And that at the time of placement, that this dog does not exhibit DISQUALIFYING TRAITS that will restrict this dog from gaining his/her Championship. IT IS PREFERRED THAT CHAMPIONSHIP IS GAINED IN THE AREA'S OF AKC OR ASCA SHOW COMPETITION. However, breeder will acknowledge and accept Championship from CKC or UKC also. Only puppies determined to contribute to the betterment of the breed are sold as show quality.

DOGS/BITCHES SOLD AS BREEDING QUALITY ARE STILL REQUIRED TO HAVE ALL HEALTH CLEARANCES **BEFORE** BEING USED FOR BREEDING. HOWEVER IF THE BUYER USES THIS DOG BEFORE HEALTH CLEARANCES ARE DONE by the age of 24 months for OFA and CERF, THEN **BUYER** ASSUMES THIS ANIMAL IS FREE FROM HEREDITARY DISEASES AND PROBLEMS AND THEREFORE THE GUARANTEE THEN BECOMES NULL AND VOID AND THE BREEDER SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE BY THIS CONTRACT.

TEMPERAMENT: All SunBear puppies are guaranteed to have a sound temperament. To further their socialization with other dogs and to help them find their place in their new homes, this dog must attend a basic obedience class/ or puppy kindergarten training.

This evaluation will be the responsibility of the buyer. We require that the results of these tests be reported to the breeder once the owner receives the rating from OFA in the case of a failing report along w/ proper documentation. IN THE CASE OF A FAILING OFA, THIS BREEDER RETAINS THE RIGHT TO PAY FOR ANOTHER OFA AT A VET OF BREEDER'S CHOICE FOR RE-CERTIFICATION BEFORE REPLACEMENT IS GRANTED OR MADE.
