Alteration Explanations and Agreement
Why Spay and Neuter?
COMPANION QUALITY DOGS come from the same litter as our breeding and show prospects and are placed only in good family homes. Spaying or neutering your pet will stop many future problems and will give your pet a longer, happier and healthier life. ALTERATION AGREEMENT: My purpose for purchasing this purebred dog is for companionship only. Since it was sold as a companion and nott for breeding or exhibition in conformation, I agree to have this dog altered (SPAYED NEUUTERED) at or between the ages of ______ months and ______ months. The AKC LIMITED REGISTRATION form will be withheld untill the seller receives a statement verifying the alteration from the veterinarian performing the surgery. FAILURE TO HAVE DOG ALTERED WITHIN THE AGREED TIME PERIOD VOIDS ALL GUARANTEES AFTER ONE YEAR OF DATE OF SALE! The AKC REGISTRATION APPLICATION is valid for ONLY ONE YEAR from the date on which it was issued. Most are issued withing 2 months of your puppies birth. It will be valid until your pet is approx. 14 months of age. If you are interested in registering your pet, PLEASE have your pet altered at the recommended age. By doing so you will have plenty of time to send me verification of spay/neuter, receive back your blue slip and submit it to the AKC. NO REMINDERS WILL BE SENT OUT SO PLEASE MARK THESE DATES ON YOUR CALENDAR! SELLER_________________________ BUYER________________________ DATED _________________________ DATED________________________
