Deposits are NonRefundable and NonTransferable and are for one specific puppy. Once you place a deposit on a puppy you cannot transfer the deposit to another puppy or litter. The puppy you place the deposit on is the puppy you will take home unless you forfeit your deposit and start over with another nonrefundable/transferable deposit.

This document acts as a bill of sale (receipt) and/or transfer of ownership from Deborah Van Laan, Acura Cockapoos, Inc., to the above stated Buyer when all transactions and transfers are made. Puppies picked up must be paid in CASH ONLY.
To the best of my knowledge, this Puppy described above is in excellent health and is guaranteed free from communicable disease for 72 total hours from date/time of pick up.
All puppies are veterinarian-checked before leaving our care. The Buyer has been provided with a copy of said Puppy's medical history (including present status of immunity vaccinations and de-wormings).
The Buyer agrees to have the puppy examined (at Buyer’s expense) by a licensed Veterinarian 72 TOTAL hours (including week ends and holidays) from date/time Buyer assumes custody of Puppy. This veterinarian visit is to continue proper medical care to include overall health exam, fecal, vaccines, wormings, heartworm and flea prevention, discuss spay/neuter at minimum. Failure to have this vet visit on file during the set time frame renders this Health Warranty null and void.
If during this examination said Veterinarian finds the puppy to be sufficiently medically unsound* (life threatening hereditary/congenital disorder) as to warrant return the Buyer shall notify the Seller within 12 total hours of examination. The Puppy shall be returned, at the expense of the Buyer, to the Seller, accompanied by a signed statement with all test results by Buyers Veterinarian of all findings within 24 total hours of diagnosis. The Seller retains the right to have the Puppy’s condition validated by another licensed veterinarian of their choice. This warranty is void in the event of an undetermined or inconclusive diagnosis. Once the medical condition is confirmed by Seller's veterinarian, the Seller will replace the puppy as soon as as a puppy of similar color, gender and pricing is available. If Buyer declines the replacement puppy when offered, Seller is relieved of all obligations to the Buyer. There are no refunds only replacement.
The Seller guarantees for a period of six (6) months from the Puppy’s date of birth that the Puppy shall be free from life-threatening hereditary and congenital disorders. If within this period the Buyer seeks a replacement puppy due to a life-threatening hereditary or congenital condition affecting the Puppy, the Seller must be notified within five days of the Puppy’s condition by being provided with a printed and signed copy of the Puppy’s complete medical history and prognosis from the licensed veterinarian who examined the Puppy and made the diagnosis. Results from all tests to diagnose the condition must be provided to Seller. The Seller retains the right to have the Puppy’s condition validated by their veterinarian. This warranty is void in the event of an undetermined or inconclusive diagnosis. Once the medical condition is confirmed by Seller's veterinarian, the Seller will replace the puppy as soon as as a puppy of similar color, gender and pricing is available. If Buyer declines the replacement puppy when offered, Seller is relieved of all obligations to the Buyer. There are no refunds only replacement.
Should the puppy die within six (6) months from date of birth a necropsy must be performed by a licensed pathologist not a veterinarian. In case of death failure to have a necropsy performed by a licensed pathologist voids the Health Warranty. This warranty is void in the event of an undetermined or inconclusive diagnosis. Buyer understands that replacement option is only valid when health issue is attributed to a heredity problem and not due to accident or contagious and/or other illness. All medical records along with the necropsy results must be submitted to the Seller no more than twelve (12) days from death or Health Warranty is null and void. Should this occur Buyer will replace the puppy with a puppy of similar color, gender and pricing as soon as one is available. If Buyer declines the replacement puppy when offered, Seller is relieved of all obligations to the Buyer. There are no refunds only replacement.
