Can a person selling a dog include in a contract that if the buyer does not keep the puppy that the puppy must come back to the seller, not given away or sold to anyone else? If you can put this in a contract will it hold up in court? I was told you can not do this by one person but another told me that you can.
Well after what happened to Ellen I'm sure it would hold up in court after you did it. It is your choice as the owner to do whats best for your dogs so if you want to put it in there I'm sure no one can stop you.
A dog seller can put it into contracts, I know because it was in the contract when we got our lab. For the most part, that clause is put in by the breeder to help make sure that the dog is not going to end up in a humane society or given away to people who can't adequately care for the dog. A good and responsible breeder will take back the dog at any point in it's lifetime before seeing it end up in the humane society.
Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
This is how it is stated in my contract: If at anytime this animal is to be sold, given away, or destroyed or other wise disposed of, for any reason whatsoever, the Buyer is required by signing this contract that they agree will first notify the Seller. The seller shall have the option to repossess said animal or to make other appropriate arrangements,(without reimbursement to the Buyer). Under no circumstances shall this animal be taken to any shelter, public or private, or research facility. If the animal is placed with Seller's concurrance, the name, address, and phone number of the new owner shall be provided to the Seller immediately.
My contract to get a pet puppy is 3 pages long, if you get a show puppy, there is an adendum to the contract to cover those responsibilites and requirements by both parties. My contract covers things such as coat type and even say's you can not chain this dog in your yard. And if the dog is allowed to become over weight, the health guarantee is null and void. I also retain the right to visit any puppy or dog I place at anytime. If the dog is deemed not to be receiving proper care, I have the right to remove the dog without reimbursment. That is very extreme, and has never happened.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
I have a clause in my contract that the dog shall not be sold or given away. I have made exceptions, one being a lady passing away suddenly, and her daughter was so attached to the dog, I felt the dog already had the best home, and there was no reason to reclaim him, and cause the daughter further grief. The contract does stand up in court.
I have the same stated in my contract. If they are unable to care for the dog/pup properly, I have first rights at the owners expense. If I get the dog back with serious injuries or illness, then they are responsible for the vet bills. If I find they are fighting or mistreating the dog in any way, I get the dog back also at their expense.
