The following health guarantee constitutes a binding agreement between Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles, hereafter referred to as “BRB” and the above identified purchaser, hereinafter referred to as “Purchaser” for the sale and purchase described of one puppy or dog identified and described above under Puppy Information, hereinafter referred to as “Puppy.”
BRB strives to place puppies in “Forever Homes.” BRB guarantees that puppy will be delivered to Purchaser in good health, with all of the required vaccinations. All of BRB puppies are vet checked, de-wormed, and have had their first vaccinations.
Puppy will stay with BRB until 8 weeks of age. Puppy will have at least one thorough examination by a qualified veterinarian.
BRB requires that the Purchaser have Puppy examined by a veterinarian of their choice within 7 days of receiving their Puppy. BRB wants Purchaser to be fully assured of their Puppy’s health. Purchaser must provide proof that the puppy was seen by Purchaser’s veterinarian within 7 days of receiving the puppy. This proof can be the invoice Purchaser is given when checking out at the veterinarian’s office. Please text a copy of the vet record to Angie at 740-297-9310, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to provide proof that puppy was examined by Purchaser’s veterinarian, will void this health guarantee.
BRB requires purchaser to keep your Puppy on a regular vaccination schedule and routine de-worming by a licensed veterinarian. BRB also requires that the Puppy be kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.
During the time between receiving your Puppy and the completion of puppy shots (approx. 16 weeks), it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to keep the Puppy away from public places such as pet stores, Puppy Preschool, or parks. A puppy’s immunity is not strong enough to be exposed to potentially deadly viruses (such as parvovirus) before the puppy vaccinations are completed.
Purchaser agrees to provide TLC food, give daily exercise, provide indoor living quarters, a reliable fence system, and regular veterinarian care. The purchaser is responsible to keep the dog fit and not allow the dog to become overweight, as this can lead to hip dysplasia down the road.
The puppy is not to compete in agility competitions (involving a lot of jumping), frisbee, or allowed to run and up down the stairs in the first year of life as this can lead to hip dysplasia down the road.
BRB reminds Purchaser that Bernedoodles and Labradoodles are intelligent animals and require consistent training, socialization and attention. BRB strongly encourages Purchaser to enroll puppy in socialization classes, obedience training, and expose them to people of all ages, after the full regiment of vaccinations is complete.
At any time, should the Purchaser be unable to keep the Puppy, the Purchaser is to notify BRB so we can assist in finding a new home. Purchaser agrees to never relinquish a puppy to a shelter.
BRB likes to remain in contact with Purchasers. We appreciate periodic updates and photos throughout your puppy’s life.
Genetic Health Guarantee
BRB provides a 2 year guarantee against any serious genetic illness that affects your Puppy’s quality of life. BRB guarantees the Puppy to be in good health at the time of transfer of ownership to purchaser.
If the Puppy has become overweight, had inadequate diet or exercise, improper veterinary care, been over or under vaccinated, been involved in agility (excessive jumping) or running up and down stairs in the first year of the Puppy’s life, this health guarantee is null and void.
If a diagnosis of any hip dysplasia is found within the first two years, BRB requires a Penn Hip report and a letter from Purchaser’s veterinarian that the puppy has received proper check-ups and has not been overweight.
Death due to injury, accident, owner’s neglect or any other cause will not be eligible for a refund.
BRB reserves the right to have the Puppy examined by a veterinarian of their choice before a replacement is made. After these requirements have been met, Purchaser may choose a replacement Puppy from any of our upcoming available litters, subject to availability; or BRB will refund Purchaser up to ½ the purchase price of the puppy. BRB does not expect you to return the Puppy as they are part of Purchaser’s family, unless the proper medical care is more than Purchaser can afford. BRB does genetic testing on all of its breeding dogs prior to them entering the program, therefore, BRB does not see this as an issue. Should Purchaser decide to return the puppy to BRB, shipping will be at the Purchaser’s expense.
Buckeye Ridge Spay/Neuter Agreement:
Proof of spaying or neutering must be received by Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles by the time the puppy is 8 months old. In the event that the dog’s health does not allow this agreement to be honored, Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles must be provided with a statement from your veterinarian that this dog is not yet in physical or emotional condition for surgery. Based upon the veterinarian’s evaluation of this dog, the puppy buyer will contact the veterinarian and establish the earliest date that the procedure can be performed. The puppy buyer will notify Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles in writing, at which time all other conditions of the contract will apply and be enforced.
This is the responsibility of the puppy buyer, not the veterinarian, to ensure that Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles has received verification that the surgery has been performed. Failure to comply with this agreement by the date below, unless otherwise agreed to in writing, will be considered a breach of the Contract.
By my signature below, I agree to have this dog spayed/neutered by the time he or she is 8 months old. I understand that this spay/neuter agreement is an agreement that this dog will NOT produce a litter of puppies, either as purposely bred or by accidental breeding. I also agree that should puppy not be altered, that I will return said puppy back to Buckeye Ridge Bernedoodles with no refund, or be charged $10,000 minus amount already paid for the puppy. This is the price BRB sells its puppies with breeding rights.
Limitations of Health Guarantee
This health guarantee is between BRB and the original Purchaser, as listed above, and does not transfer ownership if the Puppy is sold or transferred.

BRB is not liable under any circumstances to the Purchaser or any third party for consequential, incidental, or special damages resulting from the Puppy or related to the Puppy.
Upon execution of this contract all veterinary care and its costs are the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Purchaser.
