In these cases we will ask for proof to be provided.

  BUYER/BREEDER AGREEMENTS

  1. Health: The Puppy sold is in good health on the date of sale. The first sets of shots have been given and the Puppy has been dewormed every two weeks. The Puppy’s sire and dam are both DNA tested. Puppies receive two fecal testings before they go home and those results are shared. The Puppy is expected to be free of the hereditary issues known to Pomeranians and Huskies that are specifically tested for through Embark. However, no guarantee of such is or can be made for all of the hereditary issues that may be possible, as they can not yet all be tested for. LJ Kennels does not assume any liability for any injury, illness, or issues that may occur to Puppy after delivery outside of the warranty. 


  1. Short Term Guarantee: LJ Kennels guarantees the Puppy free of any life-threatening illnesses for 48 hours. The Buyer is recommended to arrange a veterinarian examination within 48 hours of bringing the Puppy home. Should the veterinarian find the Puppy has a life-threatening condition in which the cause was attributed by LJ Kennels, the Puppy may be returned and Buyer refunded everything. LJ Kennels has the right to ask a second opinion by a veterinarian of their choice. If the Buyer does not have proof of taking the Puppy to a veterinarian within 48 hours of purchase or does not contact the LJ Kennels about the scheduled date before the Puppy goes home, the refund is null and void. Transport back to LJ Kennels will be arranged and covered by the Buyer.


  1. Warranty: This warranty covers any genetic condition that causes a Puppy to die unexpectedly or be euthanized immediately by a veterinarian within the first two years of the Puppy’s life. Upon determination that a Puppy has a life-threatening genetic condition, Buyer has 48 hours from the time of the Veterinary findings to notify LJ Kennels with written documentation of said findings; failure to notify LJ Kennels will result in nullification and voiding of this warranty. In the case that a puppy dies, the owner may pick one puppy from a born or future litter as a replacement.


  1. Health insurance: The buyer agrees to keep the Puppy on health insurance for the entirety of its life. The Breeder sends each puppy home with one month of Trupanion pet insurance.


  1. Supplements: LJ Kennels keeps all of their dogs and puppies on Nuvet, which is a health supplement for dogs. LJ Kennels strongly recommends that the Buyer keep their dogs on Nuvet. The code to order for NUVET is 279923. 


  1. Issues Not Covered in Any Warranty: Any condition that is minor, correctable, treatable, avoidable with caution, or non-life threatening, is not covered. Conditions which may go away or are considered to be a condition which a Puppy may grow out of, or does not cause death, are not covered. LJ Kennels vaccinates our dogs as per the recommendation of our vet, and shot records are given to the owner when the Puppy goes home(Though dogs are vaccinated, that does not mean that the Puppy cannot get conditions/diseases that they are vaccinated against). This warranty does not protect against communicable illnesses like Parvo after a Puppy goes home. LJ Kennels recommends you DO NOT take your Puppy somewhere they could have picked it up after being taken home like a dog park or a pet store, as it will not be covered in our warranty. Conditions not covered include but are not limited to; umbilical/inguinal hernia, hip dysplasia, patella issues, retained testicles, kennel cough, autoimmunity, anxiety, cuts, grade 1-2 innocent heart murmurs, ear/skin mites, skin disorders such as mange and allergies, or any other minor condition. Due to the breadth of possible minor conditions, every possible condition would be too numerous to cover in this document. Any minor condition may be discussed with LJ Kennels for further consideration, but a presumption of no-coverage is implied for any condition deemed non-life-threatening.


  1. Vaccinations: The Buyer agrees to finish all Puppy vaccines before taking their dog out in public, letting their Puppy on public sidewalks and grasses, or letting their Puppy be touched by people outside of the family. This reduces the chances of your Puppy picking up a communicable disease such as Parvo WHICH CAN BE FATAL. 


  1. Pomsky Markings/Size: LJ Kennels cannot guarantee size, color, or markings as an adult. These genetics are determined by chance. LJ Kennels will give the Buyer their best predictions based on experience, but are not guaranteed as adults. No refunds or replacements will be given due to size, color, or markings.


  1. Pet Only/Spay and Neuter Required: A Puppy sold as a pet on limited registration is never to be used for breeding purposes; the Puppy is to be spayed or neutered before 18 months of age. The Puppy being purchased under Limited Breeding Rights must have proof of spay/neuter presented to LJ Kennels by a licensed veterinarian prior to 20 months of age. Such proof shall be provided with veterinary records or by a photo of the incision with the pertinent veterinarian’s contact information. If the Puppy cannot be fixed at 20 months due to a health issue, relevant proof must be provided. 
  2. If a Buyer with limited registration is thinking about breeding after the dog is purchased, full registration and breeding rights must be purchased directly from LJ Kennels. LJ Kennels reserves the right to refuse breeding rights to anyone at any point in time. If Full Breeding Rights/registration is allowed by LJ Kennels and is purchased, the Buyer is free to breed, show and sell offspring of the Puppy.  The Buyer agrees to use “LJ’s” as a prefix on any registration papers. 
  3. If the Buyer does not show proof of spay/neuter at 20 months of age or proof of breeding is discovered, it will be deemed a breach of contract and legal action will be pursued. A breach of this contract in this manner shall be punishable by:
  4. $4,000 per Puppy bred from the fruits of the purchased Puppy. $4,000 is the price of a Pomsky of quality at market, therefore, is the breach amount to be rewarded if said dog is bred and puppies are produced. 
  5. $1,000 for violation of LJ Kennels Breeding Rights. This is the price charged for those that purchase breeding rights upfront. 
  6. Maintaining Proper Health: The Buyer agrees to maintain preventative health care including but not limited to; inoculations, internal as well as external parasites and heartworm preventative medication. The Buyer agrees to feed high-quality food as well as provide proper socialization and training. In the event a Buyer exercises return rights under the genetic guarantee, all documentation that the above maintenance has been performed must be provided to LJ Kennels. If the Buyer does not provide such proof that every step was taken to assure the good health of the Puppy, the Warranty is void. 


  1. Rehoming Provisions: If the Puppy needs to be rehomed at any time in its life, the Buyer is to contact LJ Kennels immediately. Upon such notification, the Puppy will either be returned to LJ Kennels for new home evaluations; or LJ Kennels will assist the Buyer in finding the Puppy a new home. If the Buyer dies, the Breeder is to be contacted, and the dog will either be returned to the breeder or the remaining family can work with the Breeder to settle who will keep the dog. If the Buyer rehomes this dog and fails to notify LJ Kennels, this may be deemed a breach of contract. Such a breach may lead LJ Kennels to pursue legal remedy in the amount $1,500, for Court Costs, and Attorney Fees. It is LJ Kennels’ duty as a breeder to ensure that its dogs are always in good homes and are never placed in an unsatisfactory home or shelter. The return of a Puppy to LJ Kennels does not guarantee a refund. Such actions may be considered by LJ Kennels. 


  1. Puppy Mistreatment: If LJ Kennels determines that the Puppy/dog is not suitably cared for, or that it has been mentally or physically mistreated, LJ Kennels has the right to take full possession of the dog without refund. LJ Kennels' opinion is the only authority required to justify this action. Testimony of other people will not supersede the LJ Kennel’s judgment on this matter. Under such circumstances, all guarantees are then void. The death, injury or loss of said dog due to theft, carelessness, recklessness, abuse, neglect, or heat stroke will not entitle the buyer to any compensation from LJ Kennels in the terms of any warranty, which are then null and void. This Puppy is warranted only for the purpose of being a companion animal, not for any other purpose or reasons. This Puppy is not to be used for any illegal or immoral activities and is not to be used for any type of Puppy mill, dog farm or other mass-producing or money making operation. Such interference by LJ Kennels will not occur unless there are significant factors justifying such actions. Significant factors yielding this type of action by LJ Kennels include but are not limited to: 
  2. embedded collars, signs of old wounds left untreated, untreated skin conditions, emaciated appearance, extreme parasite infestations, observation of a person hitting or otherwise physically abusing an animal, being outside for long periods of time without adequate food, water or shelter.


  1. Slander: By signing this contract, the Buyer agrees to not slander, speak negatively, bash, or leave/make any sort of negative review about LJ Kennels or the puppies raised here to others or on any sort of social media platforms.


  1. Breeder Guarantee: LJ Kennels agrees that the Puppy is sound in health, temperament, and condition and is satisfied with the purchased Puppy. LJ Kennels agrees to always help if there are any questions or concerns with the Puppy throughout its lifetime. LJ Kennels also agrees to take back the Puppy if the Buyer is no longer able to keep it or will help in rehoming to a new suitable home. The Buyer acknowledges that LJ Kennels has done everything possible to make this a great experience and to create a puppy that is at breed standard in health and temperament. LJ Kennels guarantees to always be swift to reply and be of any assistance to the Buyer throughout the Puppy’s life. LJ Kennels agrees to always be honest and fair. 


This agreement is made and signed by both parties to ensure the wellbeing and protection of this animal. If any part of this Agreement is breached, LJ Kennels is released from any further obligations hereunder. Should LJ Kennels need to seek legal action against the Buyer or the Buyer seek legal action against LJ Kennels due to violations in this agreement, the Buyer will assume any and all attorney and court fees. This Contract and Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of Iowa in Appanoose County. Buyer agrees and understands that this contract is non-transferable, as it applies only to the original puppy and Buyer.
