It should be noted that this contract defines the responsibilities of the buyer and the seller and that it is

Show/Breeding quality puppies carry the guarantee of faults according to this contract. [ _____ ]

2. Temperament Development:
The temperament in Rottweilers is largely determined by the genetic traits passed on to it by the
parents. That is why we are firm believers in selective breeding for conformation and working ability.
We want dogs that are protective in nature yet good around children, family, and friends. We feel that
temperament and socialization are directly related to each other. In this regards, we spend a great deal
of time socializing our puppies. Every day the puppies experience human interaction and are put in
different situations such as exposing them to different floor materials, varying noise levels, both with
and without their littermates. We observe their actions and base further temperament assessment on
their progress. It must be pointed out that Schutzhund training, agility training, obedience training,
protection training, carting training, weight pulling training, therapy work training, and tracking training,
etc. are just that – training. No dog can just walk on a field and do these things. They must be trained,
and trained correctly. We can sell you a dog with a good potential to do these things, but it is up to you
to develop this potential in your dog.

3. This animal shall not be used for breeding purposes until it is at least twenty-four months of age, and has cleared health certifications for hips, elbows, eyes, heart(by board certified cardiologist), dentition and JLPP as per Orthopedic Foundation for Animals and has no disqualifying faults.

has agreed upon. Failure to comply will nullify and make void all warrantees in this contract.

5. Lonecreek Rottweilers warrants that said animal is the progeny of animals x-rayed clear of Hip
Dysplasia. If said show/working/breeding animal develops Hip Dysplasia, as evidenced by an OFA

puppy out of an equivalent breeding for $1500. The client will responsible for transportation.
The puppy will be replaced only after said animal has been rendered incapable of reproduction and the
treating veterinarian attests to the fact that he personally read the tattoo/microchip number and
records it on official letterhead and sends it to Lonecreek Rottweilers by certified mail. In addition, we
will need a copy of the AKC registration and your Lonecreek Rottweilers contract. Of course the buyer
will have had to have honored their commitments specified in the contract also for warranty to be valid.
This includes the submission of all specified paper work, the completion of training classes and the
sending of pictures. We never offer a cash refund nor cover any of your dog’s medical expenses.
In regards to hip dysplasia for show/working breeding quality, a second opinion shall be sought by buyer
