The following conditions apply to the sale of the aforementioned puppy:
Well Puppy Warranty: OPTIONAL – All puppies are examined by a licensed Veterinarian and given a clean bill of health before they leave our home. To
the best of the Breeder and Veterinarian’s knowledge, this puppy has no known diseases or illnesses. This puppy is guaranteed to be free of
untreatable health conditions. The Buyer has the option of having the puppy examined by their own Veterinarian and to personally inspect the dog once
in their possession. If, as a result of the examination, the veterinarian determines that the dog is not in good health or requires any treatment that the
buyer does not want to provide, Buyer may return the dog to the Seller within 48 hours of the exam for a full refund of the purchase price, excluding any
shipping costs. Well puppy warranty is void after the puppy is in his/her new home for 7 days.

Warranty Reimbursement Details:
All claims under the Genetic Health Warranty must be approved by Seller BEFORE any treatment is provided. Seller will reimburse Buyer for the
reasonable and customary medical treatment necessary, after documented diagnosis, to correct or cure the condition or illness, up to the full purchase
price of the puppy if documented to be genetic or hereditary in nature. Monetary reimbursement covers up to 100% of your purchase price. You do not
have to return your original puppy to use this warranty. This warranty does not reimburse for any costs incurred before the diagnosis (diagnostic fees).

Genetic Health Warranty – (2 years):
Ailments that qualify for reimbursement are those related to hip, elbow, eye, patella (knees) and heart only
.
Hip dysplasia is a widespread condition that can affect any breed of dog. There is a strong genetic link between parents that have hip dysplasia and the
incidence in their offspring. Our parent dogs have all been O.F.A. Certified free of Hip dysplasia. There are many studies that show there is evidence of
environmental factors that also influence the development of the disease, showing 50% is genetic and 50% is environmental. These factors include but
are not limited to over exertion on growth plates due to strenuous exercise/stair climbing at a young age and overfeeding your puppy to an unhealthy
weight for their structure. This is not an “all or nothing” type disease, the spectrum of symptoms range from practically nonexistent to severe crippling.
Through observation studies, it’s been confirmed that the opportunity to exercise daily in parks up until the age of three months reduced the risk of hip
dysplasia. But the daily use of steps during the same period increased the risk of hip dysplasia. The study reveals that daily exercise outdoors in gently
undulating terrain up until the age of three months is very helpful in preventing hip dysplasia, we would still recommend that pups should be exercised
regularly to strengthen musculature, but extensive jumping/stair use, etcetera should be avoided until growth is completed (at approximately 12 months).

Hips: If you suspect your dog may have hip dysplasia Apple Creek must be notified before any procedures are done to make sure no unnecessary x-
rays occur. There is a process and things we will require of you in order to confirm the diagnosis before we will issue any refunds. An official diagnosis
from the O.F.A (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) will be required, your dog must be sedated,
digital x-rays taken, one copy sent to Apple Creek and
the other sent to O.F.A for an official prelim hip report. This is the only documentation we accept to confirm the diagnosis of hip dysplasia. We will not
honor a written statement or exams from your licensed vet, it must be documented by O.F.A and the results must be sent to us. Official O.F.A rating of
Moderate or Severe is issued a reimbursement of ½ of the purchase price if diagnosed within the 2 year warranty period. If surgery is required within the
warranty period we will reimburse the cost of the surgery not to exceed the full purchase price of the puppy once vet bills are provided as proof. O.F.A
hip ratings of Borderline and Mild are not covered under our warranty. Apple Creek Doodles has the right to get a second opinion at the vet of our
choosing.
Elbows, Heart, Patellas (knees) and Eyes: Heart issues must be diagnosed by a Canine Cardiologist and found to be genetic in nature and require
surgery, Eye issues must be diagnosed by a Canine Ophthalmologist and found to be genetic in nature and require surgery, Patella issues must be
diagnosed by an Orthopedic specialist and require surgery and Elbow issues must be diagnosed by O.F.A. x-rays and require surgery. We will
reimburse for the surgery up to the full purchase price of the puppy once surgery is completed and documentation is provided to Seller. No other health
conditions that may arise in the lifetime of the dog are covered by this warranty other than what’s stated above. We do not cover any elective proactive
procedures.

Training, Temperament, Looks and Expectations: Buyer understands that all puppies exhibit certain undesirable behaviors (nipping, chewing,
barking, jumping etc.) Buyer is responsible for appropriate training of puppy to correctly teach acceptable behaviors, and is responsible for proper
socialization of puppy. Buyer agrees to provide proper training no later than 16 weeks of age and continue with training as long as necessary to
establish a solid foundation for a well socialized puppy. Training may be done independently or through professional trainers. No one can guarantee the
future temperament of a dog due to environmental influences, improper training, lack of socialization, neglect or abuse, therefore we do not warrant
such. Buyer acknowledges that there is no promise (express or implied) that their doodle will be non-shedding or non-allergenic. Buyer further agrees
that the size of the dog/puppy and color are not predictable and no promise or warranty regarding size, color, coat appearance/texture, or any
physical/behavioral trait is made by the Seller. Buyer is aware that Apple Creek Doodles is not responsible and offers no warranty or monetary
reimbursements if their puppy does not pass training to become a service or therapy dog, we sell puppies as family companions only.  

Spay/Neuter Agreement: Buyer certifies that he/she is not acting for another individual in the purchase of this dog. It is understood that the dog being
sold to be a companion pet only and is not being sold with breeding rights. This dog must be spayed or neutered by 8 months of age, no matter what
your vet might recommend. Failure to have this done will void the health warranty and will result in litigation to enforce this agreement. Proof of
spaying/neutering by 8 months of age must accompany any request for warranty reimbursement. If this puppy is bred, the purchaser agrees to pay the
seller five times the purchase price of this puppy for every litter produced.

Exclusions: Seller has taken all reasonable care to produce pups that are as healthy as possible and free of any non-treatable illnesses. Conditions
such as ear infections, eye infections, hernias, improper bites, urinary tract infections, viral illnesses such as kennel cough, intestinal parasites such as
worms, Coccidia and Giardia are considered normal costs and risks of pet ownership and are not covered under this warranty at any time. The latter of
the three are common parasites that are found worldwide, a 100% parasite-free condition cannot be guaranteed. Coccidia and Giardia are commonly
found in puppies and may or may not cause symptoms. Stress of a new home and surroundings can cause a stress-related outbreak. This contract
does not include coverage for any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food or chemicals, any physical injuries of any kind, any issues whose
cause is unknown or may have an environmental link such as Sarcomas, Tumors, Autoimmune Disorders, Thyroid Disease, Stomach issues, Food
Sensitivities, Skin or Food Allergies and Seizures. We have no control of the area your pup may be in, food you choose to feed your pup, or the
environmental factors that may trigger things to occur. Allergies in dogs (like people) can develop at any time. Buyer is advised to discuss risk reduction
strategies with their Veterinarian and to acquire private pet insurance as the seller offers no warranty or guarantee of any kind for the above mentioned
issues. Dogs are living creatures, no one can guarantee they will be 100% perfect, by bringing an animal into your life you understand things happen
and you are responsible for them both financially and emotionally for their entire life. We highly recommend purchasing Pet Insurance for your new
puppy, having added coverage for things that may occur that are not our responsibility or covered in our warranty is a great way to further protect you
and your new puppy.

Full and Final Agreement: The parties agree that this writing represents the entire agreement between them and that no other representations, either
oral or written have been made regarding the dog described above. Any agreement beyond this contract must be in writing, dated, agreed to, and
signed by both the Buyer and Seller. All refunds are cumulative and once the full purchase price of the puppy has been refunded to buyer, for whatever
cause, the warranties expire and Seller has no further monetary obligation to Buyer. By signing below, Buyer agrees that he/she understands and
agrees with this contract fully, and that this contract is under the jurisdiction of the State of Michigan, in the county of St. Clair.
