OUR COMMITTMENTS 

Although we have been encouraged to use puppy sale contracts, we think it is a better idea to set out our commitments to and expectations of our puppy buyers. We hope that by investing our trust and offering our support we will develop excellent relations to facilitate the welfare of our puppies. Please bear with me through any technicalities.

New puppy families will be referred to as the Buyer.
