The breeder guarantees that this puppy has been examined by a licensed Vet and that age and size appropriate shot(s) have been given by the vet. A record will be provided to the buyer of any shot (s) given and an overall exam. For most puppies, this is one exam and the first 5-way shot.

The Buyer agrees to have the puppy examined within 4 business days by a licensed Veterinarian. We ask that you give the puppy the first day after going home as a rest/acclimation day, and schedule your vet appointment after that. You must keep a written record of your vet check.
To prevent voiding the health guarantee The BUYER agrees to have this puppy examined by a veterinarian for a WELL PUPPY VISIT within 4 business days of the date of transfer. BUYER will provide BREEDER with a copy of the report. Buyer understands that if their puppy is not examined within 4 business days and a copy of the report is not provided to the vet that their contract will be null and void. Buyer Initials:

A signed Veterinarian’s Statement showing or finding the cause of death was in fact genetic to a medical certainty is required and must accompany the written request for a replacement puppy.

Should a puppy die an autopsy must be performed (at Buyer’s Expense) and the Buyer must provide Beauty’s Shih Tzu all written findings which state the defect and cause of the puppy’s death within 7 days of the Autopsy. The autopsy and a written statement from your vet stating what the puppy conclusively died from must accompany complete medical records and be sent to Beauty’s Shih Tzu. Beauty’s Shih Tzu will then send the results to our vet who will review the results and autopsy. Buyer’s Vet will be available for consultation with Breeder and or our Vet or Specialist if deemed necessary. No puppy will be replaced for any reason that fails to have proper veterinary care or is abused in any way. All medical and other expenses accrued by the buyer for the puppy are the responsibility of the buyer.
No other conditions are covered in this Contract. Should puppy develop one of the above-described conditions this contract guarantees a replacement puppy only, no money will be refunded. Buyer agrees to notify breeder if their vet has diagnosed or is completing any testing for potentially life-altering/life-threatening conditions. It is always our intention as the breed “ experts” to try to help you as the client and our puppies. We always want you to have a happy, healthy puppy and want to help if there is ever a question of this!
Conditions of the replacement puppy guarantee will also be outlined below. Buyer agrees to educate themselves on common health conditions or ailments the breed may be predisposed to and considered common within the Shih Tzu breed. These conditions will NOT be covered by our health guarantee. We do not guarantee the size, confirmation, or trainability of a puppy. Buyer agrees to the following:
This dog will not be placed in a rescue situation or resold to anyone for any reason. Should the buyer no longer be able to care for the dog it is agreed that the dog will be returned to the breeder. The buyer understands that while the seller provides a lifetime home guarantee for all puppies, no money will be returned to the buyer at any time.
The puppy must not be taken out to public places until his/her shots are complete and they are fully vaccinated. In order to qualify as “fully” vaccinated puppies must get a minimum of 3 DHPP ( 5 way) shots to bring a grand total of 5-way shots ( 1st shot given by breeder) to a minimum of 4 shots. At least one of these shots must be given between 16-20 weeks of age. Shots must be given one at a time. We do not recommend Lepto. Bordetella and rabies are optional at the discretion of the vet and buyer. Please take caution with Heartgard as well flea prevention, do your research, and chose carefully, the breeder is not responsible for any reactions arising from these medications. Failure to vaccinate the puppy as outlined or taking the puppy out to public places ( aside from the vet in their carrier) will void this contract.
The dog must be spayed or neutered before he or she reaches 7 months of age as outlined below. Puppies not spayed/ neutered by this age are no longer covered by this contract. If the puppy is determined to be too small or there is a medical condition preventing spay/neuter buyer agrees to contact the breeder with the vet’s recommendation. While we are no longer registering individual puppies/litters we will provide a copy of the parent’s AKC information upon request after receiving proof of spay/neuter. Should the dog produce puppies, this contract is null and void.
The puppy will be kept on quality commercial-grade food. Good nutrition is very important and Beauty’s Shih Tzu cannot be responsible for conditions resulting from or intensified by obesity, starvation, malnutrition or common food allergens, or otherwise aggravated by food. The puppy will be kept on puppy food no longer than 6 months, except in the case of very tiny puppies where the vet has recommended the puppy remain on puppy food longer. High protein food is not tolerated well and can cause life-threatening conditions.
The puppy will not be abused or mistreated in any way, whether accidental or intentional. Beauty’s Shih Tzu reserves the legal right to take back the puppy at any time with its properly signed AKC papers should this situation occur. This is at the sole professional discrimination of the breeder and there will be no compensation provided to the buyer in any way should this situation occur and all other warranties are considered void.
Breeder determines when the puppy is ready to go home and has sole discretion about when we feel a puppy is mentally/physically ready to go to their new home. Puppy will be at least 2 pounds, vet checked, and eating comfortably on their own.
The buyer agrees that they will contact the breeder before euthanasia is performed. Should euthanasia be performed before contacting the breeder then this contract will also be terminated and no replacement puppy will be given. Should a puppy die an autopsy must be performed (at Buyer’s Expense) and the Buyer must provide Beauty’s Shih Tzu all written findings which state the defect and cause of the puppy’s death within 7 days of the Autopsy. The autopsy and a written statement from your vet stating what the puppy conclusively died from must accompany complete medical records and be sent to Beauty’s Shih Tzu. Beauty’s Shih Tzu will then send the results to our vet who will review the results and autopsy. Buyer’s Vet will be available for consultation with Breeder and or our Vet or Specialist if deemed necessary. No puppy will be replaced for any reason that fails to have proper veterinary care or is abused in any way. All medical and other expenses accrued by the buyer for the puppy are the responsibility of the buyer for either the original or replacement puppy. Any shipping will be at the expense of the buyer.
Replacement Puppy Guarantee Should the buyer qualify for a replacement puppy he or she will be given one of the same value ( the same price and gender). Because replacement puppies must be of the same gender and value buyer understands that they have to wait for such a puppy to be produced. Should buyers choose a more expensive puppy buyers will have the option of paying the price difference. Should the buyer choose a less expensive puppy then the buyer will forfeit the difference in price. The buyer has been made aware that the Seller does not have puppies available all the time. When puppy buyers select a puppy, he/she will sign a written contract which will include a pickup date. That date must be met, and if the puppy buyer is unable to take the replacement puppy at that time for any reason buyer is then forfeiting a replacement puppy, and the seller’s obligation will be considered fulfilled. Spay/Neuter Contract All of our puppies are placed with a Spay and Neuter Contract. Sorry, no exceptions. Purchaser agrees to spay or neuter puppy by the age of 7 months. The majority of puppies should be spayed or neutered between 4-6 months. Our recommendation is that a puppy should be 3 pounds or bigger ( preferably 4) at the time of spay or neuter. If the puppy has not reached a safe weight/size to spay or neuter then the purchaser agrees they will contact us with the recommendation from their vet to wait longer and the reason as to why. Purchaser has been made aware that physically both males and females can reproduce as young as 6 months so it is in their best interest to avoid any possible accidents and have their puppy spayed or neutered at an appropriate age. While all the parents of our puppies are AKC registered we no longer offer AKC papers. Buyer’s Initials: Proof of Spay or Neuter must be sent to Beauty's Shih Tzu by the time the puppy is 8 months of age. Failure to do so results in the rights and ownership of the puppy and the buyer must surrender their puppy to Beauty's Shih Tzu at the purchaser's expense. If puppies are produced, the purchaser agrees to pay a fine of $2,500 per puppy produced and must still surrender their dog. Purchaser agrees that he or she will be responsible for any or all fees incurred for the safe recovery and return of the puppy.
The Internet and Puppy Sales: While we do maintain a website and online presence we do not feel we sell/adopt our puppies electronically. We require a phone interview to ensure our puppies go to the best homes for them and we are the right breeder for you. As breeders, we strive for perfection but every dog will have flaws, just like we do as people. Ultimately Mother Nature has the final say. Not all puppies will mature the way we hope them to mature and there is the possibility of defects. That being said if you choose to circulate negative information about our breeding program, the puppy you have purchased, etc. on any type of public forum your contract will be considered null and void and we may consider legal action for slander. Should there be a problem with your puppy, the buyer and the puppy breeder ( ourselves) will try to resolve the issue and neither the puppy buyer nor the breeder will post anything about this issue in a public forum. Lifetime Home Guarantee: Unfortunate and unplanned circumstances do occur in life and should you no longer be able to keep your puppy buyer agrees to immediately notify the breeder. No dog will ever be placed in a humane society or rescue situation. The breeder will try to help you find a suitable home or may choose to take the dog back. The buyer agrees to surrender all legal rights to the dog and sign over AKC papers to the breeder should this occur. The buyer understands there will be no refund of any money. Breeders will find each of our puppies or adults a suitable prescreened home if necessary. Any money made for the placement of the dog in a suitable home will be applied toward the care of the dog while with us or toward the next puppy or adult dog who may need this service.
