This Dog is not to be used for any illegal activities and is not to be used for any type of puppymill, dog farm or other mass producing or money making operation.

5. Registration

Registration papers will be furnished to Buyer upon receipt from the AKC and when complete payment is made for the puppy and spay/neuter is complete. If payment is made by personal check or money-order, the registration papers will be held until the check/money-order has cleared. The Buyer has the option of naming their new Dog with the exception that all puppies carry the kennel name "White Cliff Shepherds" at the front of their AKC registered name. Buyer agrees to register this Dog in accordance with the time limits specified by the AKC and send a copy of that registration to Seller upon receipt. If Buyer fails to use "White Cliff Shepherds" in front of the registered name or to register Dog in accordance with this paragraph, all guarantees made by Seller in this contract will become void.

Limited Registration: This puppy is purchased as a pet with limited AKC registration and may not be bred (intentionally or unintentionally). Buyer agrees to spay or neuter this dog between the age of seven to nine months and mail Seller a veterinarian verification upon completion of that operation. Within one (1) year from date of purchase, should your puppy develop hip dysplasia or any genetic skeletal disorder, which disorder will severely diminish your puppy's quality and enjoyment of life and necessitate euthanasia, upon receipt of (1) a letter from a duly licensed veterinarian attesting to such condition and (2) a certificate of euthanasia, (3) a spay or neuter certificate, and (4) the puppy's AKC registration certificate, you will receive a replacement puppy from our next available litter.

Full Registration for a female puppy. This puppy is considered to be breed quality. Buyer agrees to allow puppy to mature before being bred. Once a female has been successfully bred our Hip guarantee will be no longer in effect. This is because pregnancy can cause the Hips to expand and there for taint the Certificate results.
