Puppy Health Guarantee and Purchase Agreement

What you get when purchasing our puppies.

  • First and foremost you get a friend that will love you as much as you love them, cherish you as much as you do them and desire noting more than to please you no matter what your mood maybe. Aussies are loving, loyal, energetic companions who want nothing more than to be at your side always. They are not a typical pet me and then leave you alone dog they desire to be by you at all times and be at your beckon call for all your desires and theirs. So if you want a pet then leave me alone type of dog this is not the one to pick, it will not happen.

  • You get the piece of mind that your puppy was brought into this world NOT with the intention to make a dollar but the desire to give someone a smile, a best friend for life. Our dogs are first and foremost our family and are raised as such. Their care is our number one concern not the ole mighty buck.

  • You will receive all AKC paperwork signed and delivered at the time of picking up your new friend. Not mailed or promised like some others but right then and their.

  • Your paperwork will state that you are the only owner of the dog you have chosen and that you have FULL RIGHTS to the dog. Not a co-owner or only partial rights like most. They are your Aussie to have fixed or to breed as you see fit to do. We do not believe in the partial rights others offer only, they become your friend for life not a partial friend.

  • You will get at least a 3 generation print out of the puppies pedigree. You can purchase the AKC certified one once you register the puppy or use the one we give you as it is a direct copy of the original with our information added on to it by Breeders Assistant software, no difference other than the AKC logo. This allows you to see Inbreeding (there is NONE on our dogs unlike others), any Merle to Merle breeding that can be hazardous (again NONE unlike others that want those blue eyes so they either inbreed or breed Merle to Merle not thinking of the puppies health but the dollar).

  • You get a puppy pack to take home with you. this contain a sample food packet as well as other items. Though you can change foods we give your puppy to start their life out with we highly recommend the brand we use. These can consist of but are not limited to: Royal Canin, Diamond Brands, Victor Brands, Taste of the Wild brands. We alternate among these 1 to give them a change 2 to get the best from all because these have been proven brands for us.

  • We take our puppies to our vet for all work, tail docking, wellness checks (includes eyes and hip checks this is not the CERF check that is a whole different ball game as it requires new owner to do, our dogs have been checked and passed), shots giving at 6 weeks and another wellness checkup (due again at 10 weeks by new owners vet), de wormed at 3, 4 1/2, 6 weeks of age. Any and all Vet visit information is documented and given to you along with our Vets name and contact information at the time you pickup your puppy from us. We love our vet and have total trust in her. She knows us well and has recommended us to others, she will be happy to speak with you if you desire it.

  • You get our full backing for any help you may need taking care of your Aussie. Though the puppy is yours we will gladly help you in anyway we can to make sure the puppy has the best chance at life as possible. This includes taking the puppy back if you cannot handle it our lifestyle change occurs in you home. This does not mean you will be refunded any money it just means we are here for the return of the puppy for the health and well being of the puppy. If this is done you will be required to sign over any paperwork back to us, the only way we will do it so we may find a home for it at no cost to the new owner.

  • Any and all paper work that has any rules, regulations, information on it that you have read on this site you will receive for your keeping signed by us if you desire but if it is on the site then it stands as being a legal document we will adhere to.

We want the process of getting your new friend from us as easy and without any fears as seamless as possible. We encourage people to call, ask question about us and/or the breed as we will you. Making this choice to add a Dog into your busy world is a long term choice not a spur of the moment one. You are welcome anytime prior to purchasing or after purchasing to come out to our home to talk or visit with us and our family. Please though by doing so we put our dogs at risk of you bringing in a contagion harmful to them so please if you have dogs we ask you to make as sure as possible your shoes and clothing are clean to help eliminate the possibility of carrying in with you a harmful contagion to our home. Many breeders do not allow entry to their home which can be understood but at the same time can make and should make one wary of picking up their new friend from them.

Make sure your lifestyle fits you and the breed, your home is ready for a Aussie. Make sure you think of the years of life generally around 15 years does that fit you? Though dollars change hands it is the health, welfare and happiness we strive to give all our puppies so do not be offended if we turn you down it was for those reasons we did one or all just did not fit placement of one of our Aussies with your lifestyle conditions. We always reserve the right NOT to transfer one of our pups as we see the need arise.

What we Offer/Stand for.

HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds guarantees your puppy to be an excellent pet. If you are not 100% satisfied with his/her temperament (as described in the AKC Breed Standard, under Temperament), please return your puppy in a healthy condition, by six (6) months of age. We will replace your puppy with another of equal or greater value if we have one (refunds are not giving, replacements as we have them only) other wise arrangements will be made. Upon returning your puppy if that is what you decided you will sign over any paperwork concerning the AKC registrations back over to us, any money paid during your registration is NOT refundable. We will not consider replacing your Aussie unless you agree to sign over the puppy being returned under the above conditions.

HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds guarantees your HoneyCreek Australian Shepherd Puppy is healthy when he/she leaves our kennel. You have seventy two (72) hours after purchase to have your puppy examined by a Veterinarian. If a health problem is detected, you must notify us immediately. We will consult with your Veterinarian and our Veterinarian. We may require you to have your puppy examined by a Veterinarian of our choice at our expense. If it is determined that a health problem exists and it is directly attributable to us as breeders, you may return your puppy if you so decide. We have the option to replace the puppy with one of our choice of equal or greater value or refund your purchase price. HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds WILL NOT refund or compensate travel expenses. We CAN NOT and WILL NOT be held responsible for ANY vet bills incurred AFTER purchase.

HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds guarantees your new HoneyCreek Australian Shepherd puppy to be free of all Communicable disease for a period of 10 days from the date of sale. The puppy will have had all needed and required vaccinations for a 8 week old puppy given by our Vet with documentation for you to give to your Vet prior to you leaving with your puppy. As Parvo, Corona, Coccidiosis or Giardia are giving to your puppy after the 8 week mark (at 10 weeks of age) and because we do not know if any of your other pets or neighbors pets are up to date on their shots these conditions are not guaranteed as it is beyond our reach to do so ourselves. We HIGHLY recommend you to make a Vet appointment with our Vet or yours as soon as you get home or before you pick up your new puppy. These un vaccinated disease's are deadly if not taking care of before hand.

Any and ALL paperwork during the transfer of ownership must be filled out completely and honestly. The purchase of a Dog any more per State/ Local and Government regulations require some extensive paperwork. This is to protect not only us but you and the dog so please bare with it and understand that it is not just us you are filing the required paper work with but the local/state and regulatory bodies of the government. We have no choice in do this so honesty is your best option here.

Please keep your new HoneyCreek Australian Shepherd Puppy on a leash or in a fenced area until he/she is acclimatized to his/her surroundings. HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds CAN NOT and WILL NOT be held responsible or liable for a dog that becomes lost, injured, disabled or stolen. HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds recommends you MICROCHIP your new HoneyCreek Australian Shepherd Puppy upon his/her first (1st) visit to the Veterinarian.
