GUARDIAN FAMILY AGREEMENT FOR BOYS



RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE GUARDIAN


The Dog will reside with the Guardian. The Guardian will transport The Dog to and from the residence of The Breeder for the purpose of breeding in a timely fashion. The Guardian will be easily contacted by The Breeder, either by telephone or email, and will reply as quickly as possible when contacted.

The Guardian will supply The Dog with a balanced Raw food diet, or TLC Dog Food. If neither diet is possible, The Guardian will not switch the diet of The Dog without guidance and written consent from The Breeder.

The Guardian will keep in touch with The Breeder, and provide updates on The Dog’s health and development. The Guardian will not allow The Dog to become overweight or underweight. Any ill-treatment, abuse, or neglect of The Dog will not be tolerated, and the Breeder will repossess the Dog with no refund provided to the Guardian.

The Guardian will not allow The Dog to run free without supervision at any time. The Guardian will not allow uncontrolled, unleashed, or unsupervised contact between The Dog and any unknown, or intact dogs. As The Dog will be left sexually intact for the duration of this contract, The Guardian is prepared to provide strict and supervised accommodations for The Dog, avoiding all other breeding opportunities.

The Guardian is totally responsible for the upkeep of The Dog. This includes the costs for regular vaccinations and any veterinarian care required for conditions or emergencies not related to breeding. In the case of emergency, injury, or planned surgery, The Breeder will be contacted and made aware of the situation before the procedure occurs, when time permits. The Breeder will always be given full access to any and all medical records pertaining to The Dog at any time.

Once this contract has been signed, the actions and behaviours of The Dog are the liability of The Guardian, and not The Breeder. Therefore, The Guardian will seek out professional training in a timely fashion following the commencement of this contract. The cost for training of any kind is the responsibility of The Guardian.

At the closing of this contract, when the breeding requirements (outlined below) have been fulfilled, the Guardian is responsible to neuter The Dog, and only then will his registration be transferred to The Guardian.  At the conclusion of this contract, The Dog will live permanently with The Guardian.

Under no circumstances will The Dog be neutered without the written consent of the breeder.


RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BREEDER


The Breeder is to provide The Dog to The Guardian up to date on regular vaccinations and wormings.

The Breeder is responsible for the cost of any and all pre-breeding genetic and health testing.

The Breeder is responsible for the care and upkeep of The Dog, with regard to feeding and medical costs incurred as a direct result of any breeding or reproduction activities, while The Dog is in the possession of The Breeder for breeding purposes.

In the unlikely event of accidental death of The Dog, as a direct result of breeding, it is the responsibility of The Breeder to supply a replacement dog or puppy to The Guardian. The replacement dog or puppy will be subject to the choice of The Guardian, and also subject to availability from The Breeder. The replacement dog or puppy may be a pet, or a guardian, but will be at no charge to The Guardian. The Breeder can not be held liable to The Guardian, or any other parties, for more than a replacement dog or puppy.

The Breeder is responsible for costs incurred to register or transfer the registration belonging to The Dog, and all of his offspring.


RETURN PRIVILEGES

If any one or more of the terms outlined in this contract are deliberately or mistakenly dishonoured by The Guardian, during the time that this contract is in effect, The Breeder reserves the right to confiscate The Dog from the custody of The Guardian, permanently or otherwise.

If, for whatever reason, The Guardian can no longer care for The Dog at anytime in his life, he is to be returned to The Breeder.


OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES


For the duration of this contract, The Breeder will offer lodging to The Dog in place of a boarding kennel, for times when The Guardian wishes to take a vacation or travel away from home without The Dog, free of charge. This service is subject to availability and timing, and is limited to a total of 30 days per year. The Guardian will give reasonable notice to The Breeder when this service is requested. If lodging with The Breeder is not feasible, then it is the responsibility of The Guardian to seek out and obtain boarding for The Dog in a humane and safe facility. The Guardian will be held responsible for any outcome resulting in leaving The Dog in the care of any other person or organization.

As The Dog belongs to The Breeder, until the termination of this contract, The Guardian may choose to have The Dog serviced by The Breeder for scheduled vaccines and worming treatments, free of charge. However, specialty vaccines, such as Rabies and Bordetella, are not offered by The Breeder and are the responsibly of The Guardian.


FULFILLMENT OF CONTRACT


The Breeder requires that The Dog be left intact for the duration of this contract. This contract is in effect until The Dog is 4 years of age. The Breeder will notify The Guardian in writing when the contract is fulfilled. Only then can The Dog be neutered.

If The Dog is neutered, lost, dies, is bred outside of Starstruck, or is otherwise unable to breed as a result of the negligence of The Guardian or to a third party to whom they entrusted The Dog, The Guardian will be liable for the sum of $5000.00 (five thousand dollars), to be paid to The Breeder. The Dog will also become the exclusive property of The Breeder.
