A Non-Refundable Deposit fee is required ensure adopter is serious and ensure the pup has a new home to go to on the pickup date. Should something happen to your puppy while in our care or puppy is not adoptable deposit will apply toward another puppy as soon as we have one of similar quality available.
Holding Fee - A fee of $30.00 (Thirty dollars) a day accumulating to and including the day of pick up will be required for holding the puppy past original pick up dates stated. This fee may be asked for upfront when agreement to hold puppy longer is made. Holding fees must be paid before puppy is release to adopter, failure to do so by new agreed to pick up date will terminate your rights and a new adopter will be found. Written and email files act as proof of correspondence and/or if this is a mutual agreement to hold pup for a fee and the new pick up date. If you do not notify breeder or breeder does not agree to hold puppy past pick up dates or you do not show to pick up your puppy by the latest pickup date a new adopter will be found and your rights will be terminated. DO NOTE: Breeder most often cannot hold puppies past the original dates. So, if there is a pickup issue you may have to have a family or friend pickup on your behalf with written permission from you (the adopter) if we cannot accommodate a longer hold period.

The Buyer Listed Above Agrees:
* I am aware Aussie's are prone to skin problems, hip dysplasia, umbilical hernia, luxating patellas, eye conditions, and hearing conditions and have sensitive stomachs. None of these “common” problems are covered in our health guarantee although breeder strives for the perfect puppy some puppies maybe affected.
*Although we make every attempt to prevent worms and other parasites there is always a chance they are picked up from environment, other animals, or even tracked in accidentally (strays and wildlife track them everywhere) and are not covered in our guarantee. Our recommendation is dogs should continue monthly dewormers for life to help keep parasites at bay.
* I will ONLY GIVE AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD APPROVED MEDICINES AS NOT DOING SO CAN BE LIFE THREATENING!
* I Will NOT make sudden or drastic food changes as it causes stress and lowers the immune system to a breed prone to many issues already. I will use the food breeder is using for at least the first two weeks. Should I choose to change the diet I will wait until after the first two weeks to transition and transition slowly taking a minimum of a week to do so. Current Food being fed is: _______________________________________________________________________
* I Will NOT expose puppy to public animal places (example: pet stores, dog parks, places people hike frequently with their dogs) until all vaccines are completed which is usually 3 to 4 months old. After vaccines are completed I will socialize my puppy and expose them to new people and places as socialization is a process that must be continued throughout their lives.
* I UNDERSTAND there are NO REFUNDS under any circumstances. I also understand I WAIVE ANY LEGAL RIGHT TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST BREEDER for ANY REASON and all issues will be handled between breeder and I only. Should I have any problems I will contact the breeder through email.
* I will put "OG’s DOG’s" into my puppy's official name as the first words...." to show that the puppy came from the Og’s Dog’s line. I understand Og’s Dog’s cannot be put anywhere in the middle or end of the name.
