You are bringing home a family member who will be your companion and a pet. Well-bred, purebred puppies require a significant investment both by the new owner and the breeder. I care about my puppies and enjoy having cordial relationships with my puppy owners. I believe in having the expectations outlined in the form of a detailed and fair contract. This protects the puppy and our relationship. If you are considering a Moonrise puppy and have questions about the terms in this sample, please dont hesitate to ask.
