THE BREEDER/VENDOR ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES AS FOLLOWS:

1 That both parents of this dog are registered SHETLAND SHEEPDOGS and that this dog is or will be registered in Canada with the Canadian Kennel Club by the BREEDER/VENDOR as specified in the ANIMAL PEDIGREE ACT, 1988, and that, also in accordance with this Act, there will be no additional charge to the BUYER(S) for such registration;

2. That the individual registration certificate for this dog will be given or forwarded to the BUYER(S) by the BREEDER/VENDOR as soon as the transaction is recorded and processed by the Canadian Kennel Club;

5. That this dog and its sire/dam have been tested for Von Willebrandts Disease (a hereditary blood clotting disorder), with the following results:

6. That both parents of this dog were in excellent health and condition at time of breeding, and that the dam was maintained on a carefully monitored diet and exercise program both before and during pregnancy to prot-note optimum development in her puppies;

7. That this dog has been examined by a veterinarian prior to sale and found to be in good health; and that to the best of the BREEDER'S/VENDOR'S knowledge, this dog at time of sale is free from internal/external parasites, injury, disease or hereditary defect or disability. The required vaccinations and wormings are as recorded on the attached health record. The BUYER is urged to have the dog examined by his/her own veterinarian within 72 hours of receiving this dog; if the veterinarian questions the health or condition of the dog, the dog may be returned to the BREEDER/VENDOR for a full refund;

8. That should this dog develop any disabling condition which a licenced veterinarian will certify is of likely hereditary origin and renders the dog unsuitable to be a pet, the BREEDOR/VENDOR will, upon receipt of the appropriate documents from the veterinarian, accept return of the dog and either replace the dog with one of similar value or refund the initial purchase price;

9. The PALISADES SHETLAND SHEEPDOG has been bred for intelligence and soundness of disposition as well as beauty and soundness of body.

This dog has been systematically exposed to young children, household appliances, loud noises, other dogs, cats, car travel, strange people and new places. The BREEDER/VENDOR guarantees that this dog is neither innately shy nor aggressive. Wariness and caution towards new people, places and events is a normal breed characteristic of the Shetland Sheepdog; a temperamentally sound dog may exhibit hesitation and uncertainty but should quickly adapt to new surroundings. Should the BUYER question the temperamental soundness of this dog, he/she must so inform the BREEDERIVENDOR within ONE WEEK of receiving it.

2. To provide a safely enclosed outdoor exercise area for this dog, such as a securely fenced yard, kennel run or exercise pen where the dog may be safely left unsupervised for short periods of time, and under no circumstances to allow this dog to roam at large;

3. If this dog is a puppy, to train it sufficiently for it to mature into a well-mannered canine citizen who will be an ambassador for its breed rather than a public nuisance, and to exercise responsible supervision of this dog;

4. To allow the BREEDER/VENDOR first refusal to either re-purchase this dog or to find a suitable home for this dog should it become necessary that this dog be sold or given away. The BUYER(S) further agree(s) not to give or sell this dog, nor any get of this dog, to any pet shop, puppy mill or animal wholesaler;
