PLACEMENT FEE, DEPOSIT, HOLDING FEE & FINAL BALANCE: A $100 placement fee is collected at the time the Buyer's name is placed on the Breeders waiting lists and it is separate from the total cost of a puppy and is meant to secure your spot on a list. If the potential Buyer chooses to place a deposit and an eventual holding fee (as outlined below), the Buyer commits him/herself to the terms of this agreement regardless of whether this document is signed or not. Once the puppies are born, a deposit of $500 is due at birth within 24 hours of the birth announcement email, and the deposit represents the Buyer's commitment to choose a puppy at 5-6 weeks of age. If you choose a puppy a holding fee between $880.00 and $1162.50 is also due (holding fee amount depends on the breed or mix of Cavapoo, Brittanypoo, or Miniature/Moyen Poodle) which holds the Buyer’s chosen puppy until he/she is 8 weeks old and ready to leave Pleasant Meadows. The holding fee at 5-6 weeks of age is only due if the Buyer chooses a puppy. If the Buyer does not choose a puppy then the Buyer’s original $100 placement fee and the $500 deposit placed at birth is non-refundable but is transferable as outlined -- the placement and deposit can be transferred to another waiting list with available spaces, or another litter with available puppies. If the said puppy dies or is found to have a physical defect making it unfit for purchase prior to being transferred to the Buyer, on this premise the placement fee, deposit, and holding fee will either be refunded or transferred to another available puppy of equal value (to be determined by the Breeder – Pleasant Meadows) unless the Buyer prefers to pay the difference for a puppy from a different generation. All payments -- placement fee, deposit, and holding fee must be paid on time -- which is within 24 hours of going on a list, within 24 hours of the birth announcement, and within 24 hours of choosing a puppy as outlined on our website. And the final balance for our puppies must be paid for in full 24 hours in advance of the day that the puppy turns 8 weeks of age, and all puppies must be picked up on the day the litter turns 8 weeks or soon after up to 9 weeks. If your puppy is not picked up by 9 weeks of age -- a $20 per day boarding fee will be applied to the puppy price that covers the cost of food and care, age-appropriate training, as well as for the cost of any additional medical expenses (worming medication, vet appointments, vaccinations, etc.) and this will be required to be paid by the Buyer when the puppy is picked up.  Failure to pick up a puppy by 10 weeks of age will result in the Buyer forfeiting their intended puppy and their deposit, and any additional fees paid will ONLY be refunded AFTER the said puppy has found a new home. 

FIRST 72 HOURS in the Buyer's home:  It is not a requirement for families to have their new puppy examined by the Buyer's vet immediately after taking him/her home, however, the Buyer is free to do so within 72 hours.  A puppy's immune system can drop from the normal stress of leaving his/her mom and littermates and having all the new changes in his/her life. Therefore, it is not our recommendation to do so as it leaves a young puppy more vulnerable to being exposed to a disease or parasite. But if the Buyer wants to have their veterinarian give a health examination to their new puppy it should be done with some pre-cautions:


  • Don't let your puppy down on any surface or flooring that has not been cleaned. Ask the staff if the surface/exam room has been cleaned between clients/appointments, and if not, have them clean it -- a clean exam table and weigh scale are particularly important!  (A vet clinic deals with many sick animals and puppies and the risk of parasites and illnesses like parvo and kennel cough go up when a young puppy is exposed.  Vet clinics do maintain a level of cleanliness, but they are only human and things can be missed or the application of the disinfectant may not be sufficient.)

  • Bring a towel or blanket along to place on the examination table so that your puppy doesn't come in direct contact with the table.  (Same reason, precaution against illness/parasites and precaution against failure to clean properly/missed bacteria and/or parasites.)

  • And lastly, while the temptation may be there to pass a new puppy around to show off and/or socialize a new puppy with the vet staff -- STOP!  This is very stressful for a new puppy who is just getting to know *you* as a person, and as his/her *new family*!


Allowing "everybody" to pet a young puppy can be overwhelming for puppies learning to navigate in a new world, and it is better to socialize where you are instead allowing your puppy to see and experience the world, people, and things around them by giving them the opportunity to explore them naturally, instead of having that world forced on them with multiple people touching them and potentially bending over them while they are potentially fearful in a new situation.  This is the formation for the behaviour/fear response responsible for many dog bites because owners don't always advocate for their dog's personal space and allow people to reach out without asking/inviting, or bending over a puppy or dog (both space invading and threatening to even the most well trained dogs). This behaviour from HUMANS is dangerous and owners should always advocate for their dog's personal space -- your dog does NOT have to be petted by EVERYONE, nor does your dog have to LIKE everyone.  (Many dog trainers agree that people should not hold out their hands for a dog to sniff, bend over them, or allow children to hug or bend over to give kisses -- Buyers can research this for themselves. And again, vet clinics and their staff handle a lot of sick animals throughout the day, reducing the risk of exposure by not letting the vet staff pet your puppy will potentially reduce the risk of many parasites and/or respiratory illnesses.) 

If a Buyer insists on having their puppy examined by their veterinarian and feels that the risk of exposure of disease and illness in a young puppy is worth the vet examination -- then we the Breeder -- Pleasant Meadows -- require that it is done within 72 hours of the puppy leaving Pleasant Meadows and entering the Buyer's care. The Buyer must give the Breeder full access to speak with their veterinarian should a life-threatening genetic illness be found and we, the Breeder, must also be provided with written documentation on official letterhead directly from the veterinarian who examined the puppy before proceeding further. The following shall be warranted within those initial 72 hours:

  • If the puppy is found to have a life-threatening genetic illness that would drastically shorten or affect the quality of life -- the puppy must be returned at the Buyer's expense for a full refund *if* the puppy is returned immediately and all *veterinarian documentation and access is provided*. NO replacement of the puppy will be given, only a refund of the purchase price if the puppy is returned and all veterinarian documentation and access is granted to the Breeder -- Pleasant Meadows.

  • Failure to give the Breeder -- Pleasant Meadows -- full access to speaking with the veterinarian, failure to provide written veterinarian documentation on official letterhead directly from the Buyer's veterinarian who examined the puppy within the initial 72 hours, and failure to return the puppy within 1 week from the veterinarian examination will release Pleasant Meadows from all obligations to the Buyer and there will be NO REFUND given without the return of the puppy as well as full access to speaking with the veterinarian and proper written documentation being provided. 

  • If the Buyer refuses to return the puppy, NO refund and NO replacement puppy will be given as the Buyer is assuming all responsibility for the puppy and the health guarantee is VOID, and Pleasant Meadows will not be responsible for any veterinarian costs incurred throughout the puppy's life.

All of our puppies receive a full health examination at 7-8 weeks of age by a licensed veterinarian prior to leaving Pleasant Meadows, and therefore, unless a need arises, a puppy does not need to see a veterinarian again until their next booster vaccination is due at 12 weeks of age.  Having your puppy seen within the first 72 hours will be done at the Buyer's own risk for exposure to potential disease and/or parasites, and it is *not* a requirement from Pleasant Meadows for the puppy to be seen in order for the puppy to be covered by our health guarantee for our puppies.

Nothing beyond a life-threatening disease is warranted within that initial 72 hours, and the Buyer is solely responsible for all veterinarian costs related as it would be done according to the Buyer's personal beliefs and it is a part of the responsibility of dog ownership.

GUARANTEES beyond the initial 72 hours up to 3 years of age within the parameters outlined in this Health Guarantee: We at Pleasant Meadows will make every effort to guarantee that every puppy we sell is in excellent health at the time of purchase. Your puppy will have passed a veterinary health examination prior to leaving Pleasant Meadows and he/she will be a minimum of 8 weeks of age. Upon leaving Pleasant Meadows all of our puppies will have received the 1st vaccine in the series of puppy inoculations from a licensed veterinarian prior to going to their new home, and have been dewormed twice at minimum. Your puppy’s immune system is not fully developed until your puppy has completed the series of puppy shots once the puppy is in your care. Until this time we strongly recommend not taking your puppy to public places. When at the vet's office have them disinfect the exam table and don’t put your puppy on the floor, keep your puppy in a pet carrier and put your puppy directly back in the pet carrier when the vet examination is complete.

If the Buyer complies with all of the terms contained within this agreement, then the Breeder warrants the health of the puppy against hereditary life-threatening genetic defects for a select number of months to years based on the diet fed to the puppy/dog. This warranty is for puppy replacement and not monetary refund. Life threatening is defined as "a genetic abnormality/disorder that will eventually cause the early death of the dog yielding a life expectancy of less than 5 years either by the progression of the disease or by recommended euthanasia unless extensive medical care and surgery are performed beyond the cost of said puppy”. The amount of time that a puppy/dog is warranted is based on the below dietary options: 

  • A puppy fed a balanced raw, gently cooked, or homemade diet that is non-GMO, hormone and antibiotic free, or Organic with proper meat rotation between proteins (beef, chicken, duck, turkey, fish, kangaroo, bison, rabbit, etc. – choose a few proteins to rotate through semi-regularly) and appropriate supplements (dog-safe fruits, vegetables, Omega 3/fatty acids, minerals, bone inclusive mixes or recreational raw bones/treats) shall be warranted against hereditary disease for 5 years.  Some brands of non-GMO raw food would be Big Country Raw, Back2Raw, Healthy Paws, and Raw Performance to name a few.

  • A puppy fed dry food (kibble) that is non-GMO, hormone and antibiotic free, or Organic with the inclusion of added fresh food and supplements (dog-safe fruits, vegetables, Omega 3/fatty acids, minerals, and recreational chews/treats) shall be warranted against hereditary disease for 2 years.  Some brands of non-GMO or Organic dry food would be Farmina, Open Farm, and Carna4 to name a few.

  • A puppy fed *regular dry or canned food* that is *NOT* non-GMO or Organic in some way will be warranted for 6 months from the purchase date as it has been PROVEN by science that the pesticides, chemicals, and growth hormones that are in regular dry and canned food can cause degenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, auto-immune diseases, cancer, allergies, high homocysteine levels, diabetes, dental disease, gas and diarrhea, behavioural problems, skin rashes and infections, kidney problems, pancreas problems, liver problems, and MORE!  Regular dry and canned food is fed at the Buyer’s own risk.

  • A puppy fed food that contains animal by-products, corn, whole grain sorghum, whole grain corn, corn gluten meal, dried-beet pulp, or any brand that does NOT list meat as the first and second ingredients will be VOID of warranty, regardless of age.

  • Hereditary diseases warranted under this agreement for the stated time-frames based on diet are shown below based on breed or mix: 

  1. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel / Cavapoo – Degenerative Myelopathy, Episodic Falling Syndrome, Exercise-Induced Collapse, Hereditary Cataracts, Intervertebral Disc Disease Risk Factor and Chondrodystrophy, Multidrug Resistance 1, Osteochondrodysplasia, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Von Willebrand Disease I.

  2. Miniature or Moyen Poodle – Degenerative Myelopathy, GM2 Gangliosidosis, Hereditary Cataracts, Intervertebral Disc Disease Risk Factor and Chondrodystrophy, Multidrug Resistance 1, Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures, Osteochondrodysplasia, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Rod-Cone Dysplasia 4, Von Willebrand Disease I.

  3. English Springer Spaniel / Springalierpoo -- Acral Mutilation Syndrome, Degenerative Myelopathy, Familial Nephropathy, Fucosidosis, GM2 Gangliosidosis, Glycogen Storage Disease VII, PFK Deficiency, Hereditary Cataracts, Intervertebral Disc Disease Risk Factor and Chondrodystrophy, Multidrug Resistance 1, Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures, Osteochondrodysplasia, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Rod-Cone Dysplasia 4, Von Willebrand Disease I

  4. Brittany / Brittanypoo -- Complement 3 Deficiency, GM2 Gangliosidosis, Hereditary Cataracts, Intervertebral Disc Disease Risk Factor and Chondrodystrophy, Multidrug Resistance 1, Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures, Osteochondrodysplasia, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Rod-Cone Dysplasia 4, Von Willebrand Disease I.

This warranty does not cover “innocent” puppy murmurs (also called “physiologic murmurs” or “growing murmurs”) that go away as a puppy grows. Grade 1-2 heart murmurs (which are innocent murmurs) are found in 25% of litters regardless to breed and size of puppy during the growing stages and typically disappear by 6 months of age, and grade 1-2 heart murmurs are not life threatening or indicative of heart problems in later life. In the event of an actual heart murmur a replacement puppy will not be given unless there is a grade 3-5 heart murmur present at 10 months of age to a maximum of 2 years of age from the puppy's/dog's date of birth. An innocent grade 1-2 heart murmur in no way makes any puppy unfit for sale. This warranty also does not cover DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy) which may share a link associated with grain free diets (yet to be proven).  Each Buyer is responsible for choosing their own dog food and Pleasant Meadows is not responsible for non-genetic DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy) in a puppy/dog.

With the patellas/knees and the hips -- exercise must be monitored and limited during the first 12 months and the Buyer must not engage their puppy in any strenuous activities that may cause undue damage to developing ligaments, joints and bones. Long walks of several miles, repetitious running, jumping from surfaces higher than the height of the puppy, running on slippery flooring, agility, etc. can break down the puppy's cartilage and tendons causing non genetic patellar or hip dysplasia. In the first 12 months do NOT over exercise the puppy or encourage jumping from heights greater than that of the puppy, and don't encourage exercise or play on slippery flooring that involves running/chasing (this is meant for outdoors with traction underfoot) – a replacement puppy will not be given unless there is a grade 3-5 patellar/knee slip present at 10 months of age to a maximum of 2 years of age from the puppy's/dog's date of birth, and patellar luxation or hip dysplasia caused by injury, nutritional deficit, or in a dog that is found to be grossly overweight is void of replacement (proper weight would need to be determined by a veterinarian).

We start all of our puppies on crate training and we require that all Buyers have their puppy sleep either in a crate or on a dog bed on the floor and *NOT your bed* until at least 6 months of age to avoid any risk of your puppy jumping off or falling off your bed and causing an injury. Jumping or falling from heights greater than themselves WILL cause damage to their ligaments, joints, etc. Any puppy presenting a leg ailment, particularly patellar luxation within the first 8 months will be suspect of injury to that leg and will be void of replacement, as the patellar joint is easily compromised by a fall or other jarring action in growing puppies.  Genetic leg defects do not commonly show up until a dog is of mature weight and height and the joint is stressed. All of our puppies are vet checked at 8 weeks to rule out patellar luxation. We encourage Buyers to bring their puppy’s crate into their bedroom so that they can be close by their puppy throughout the night.

Buyers also need to be mindful not to over-feed (which could cause excessive/rapid weight gain) and to only feed quality dog food, as these conditions (heart problems, hip and joint dysfunctions) can be brought on by poor quality food which does not promote proper bone/cartilage growth, development, and maintenance. A grossly overweight dog displaying these conditions under 2-5 years of age (as outlined above based on diet) will be considered void of a replacement, as there would be no way to accurately determine that the cause of any one of the above conditions could be genetic, and it is the Buyer's responsibility to feed their dog appropriately and not allow their dog to become obese. Appropriate weight relative to your dog's breed and size must be verified by a veterinarian in the event of one of these conditions. If the Buyer changes the food to another brand other than what was supplied in the Puppy Starter Kit sent home with your puppy – the Buyer must switch the food over gradually (10-14 days at minimum) in order to help prevent the puppy from getting an upset intestinal tract which can result in diarrhea and/or vomiting. Switching to another food too quickly can also result in stressing the puppy’s immune system, as the intestines are responsible for the absorption of all nutrients and vitamins, etc. If the intestines become irritated – a host of problems can arise!  Any puppy under 1 year of age that is not being fed a raw diet must be fed an ALL LIFE STAGES or PUPPY FORMULA if feeding dry food – any puppy that is fed an adult formula under 1 year of age will be void of replacement as there will no doubt be nutritional deficits resulting from feeding adult food while the puppy is still growing.  Please see warranties based on diet above. If feeding a RAW diet – please feed a mix with ground bone, or provide bones for a puppy to chew.

Umbilical hernias do happen from time to time and in most cases are caused by the umbilical cord being pulled by the puppy's mother at the time of delivery which can cause a small tear or weakening in the stomach wall. Hernias are not generally harmful in any way and the most accepted veterinarian recommended course of action is to have a hernia repaired at the time your puppy is spayed/neutered (it's a very simple procedure). If a puppy is found to have an umbilical hernia, this is not considered grounds for a replacement puppy, as it is not breed-specific (dogs of all breeds and sizes can get hernias) – and an umbilical hernia in no way makes any puppy unfit for sale. The Breeder will offer a $100 discount off the puppy's price if any one of our puppies is found to have a reducible umbilical hernia at the puppy's veterinarian health examination prior to leaving Pleasant Meadows at 8 weeks of age. Sometimes reducible umbilical hernias are not always visible in young puppies as they are as their name suggests – “reducible”, which means they can disappear and reappear -- and can even appear after 8 weeks of age for numerous reasons including over-exercise and accidental injury.  It’s also possible to have a “fatty deposit” of fluid left behind when the umbilical area closes, and this is not considered a hernia unless the pocket is over 1 cm.  Openings 1 cm or less will likely close by 3-6 months of age and don’t require surgical repair. The discount is for an umbilical opening over 1 cm and does not cover any expenses beyond the $100 (if any), and it does not cover if you decide to or need to have the umbilical hernia repaired prior to having your puppy spayed/neutered. No discount will be given for “outie belly buttons” where a small bubble of fluid forms during the natural healing of the umbilical area after birth as there is no risk of health to the puppy and it is considered to be cosmetic only and would not need to be repaired. The technical term for an “outie belly button” is a “non-reducible hernia” meaning that the herniation has already healed.

The said puppy, on which the Buyer has placed a deposit, is being sold as a pet only, and must be spayed/neutered between 7 and 16 months of age. We do NOT support early spaying/neutering prior to maturity, as research clearly finds this to be detrimental physically, behaviourally, and hormonally. If the said puppy/dog is spayed/neutered BEFORE 7 months of age – the puppy will be void of replacement as there are known physical health issues directly associated with altering a puppy before the growth plates close and their body matures. Do NOT allow your vet to bully you into spaying/neutering EARLY – a lot of times they will try to scare you into thinking it has to be done right away – this is NOT the case! Do your research on the BAD effects of spaying/neutering TOO EARLY! If the said puppy/dog is purposely bred without permission from Pleasant Meadows, the Buyer MUST either RETURN the said puppy/dog at their expense to Pleasant Meadows OR if the Buyer wants to KEEP their puppy/dog the Buyer MUST pay for FULL BREEDING RIGHTS and for breaching the contract. Full Breeding Rights and Breach of Contract Fee is $5000. It is NOT difficult to PREVENT unwanted pregnancy in a female – if your female is in heat, keep her on a leash and do NOT let her go outside alone (even in your own yard) and do not take her out on walks (stay in your own yard).  There is no excuse for an “accidental” breeding/pregnancy. We recommend spaying a female between 7-10 months of age (a female may cycle around 8-9 months) and a male between 10-16 months of age.

For the Buyer’s feeding a RAW, gently cooked, or homemade or dry food that is non-GMO or Organic -- this health guarantee is for the first 2 or 5 years of life only as specified above based on diet within the perameters laid out within this agreement. All claims must be submitted before the puppy's second birthday for the Buyer’s feeding a non-GMO or Organic dry food.  And for the Buyer’s feeding a non-GMO or Organic RAW, gently cooked, or homemade diet, all claims must be submitted before the puppy’s fifth birthday. A replacement puppy will be made, if during this time frame, a puppy is found to have a life-threatening genetic defect identified by two unassociated licensed veterinarians, providing that documented proof from both unassociated veterinarians is sent to Pleasant Meadows for the Breeder’s veterinarian to review. If the Buyer refuses to provide veterinary proof from both unassociated veterinarians of a genetic defect and if the Buyer refuses to provide proof of diet, then Pleasant Meadows is released from all obligations to replace the puppy. A replacement will be made for a puppy of equal value, unless the Buyer prefers to pay the difference for a more valuable puppy. In the unlikely event that a death occurs, a necropsy must be performed by a licensed veterinarian and a copy of the report forwarded to the Breeder for review by the Breeder's veterinarian before determining if a replacement is to be made. If our veterinarian concurs that the puppy did indeed pass away due to a genetic defect, the Breeder will replace your puppy as soon as one is available. All expenses are at the Buyer's expense including the licensed veterinarian tests, professional diagnosis, medications, necropsy, and all applicable medical expenses. If the puppy becomes ill and the owner has the puppy euthanized without the Breeder’s prior consent, no replacement will be made. If the Buyer declines the replacement puppy, then the Breeder shall be under no further obligation and it will be deemed that the Buyer has released the Breeder from any and all further claims, obligations or duty regarding this agreement. There will be no monetary refund, as this guarantee is only for a replacement puppy of the same value if the above requirements of veterinarian proof are met. Again, THE BREEDER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES OR OTHER COSTS THAT THE BUYER HAS INCURRED, AND NO MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED.

This guarantee does NOT cover any costs associated with spaying or neutering, nor does it cover injury, accidental death, or death from any routine surgical procedure. Further, this guarantee does not cover any of the following conditions or minor flaws: coccidiosis, giardia, parvovirus, hypoglycemia, kennel cough, pneumonia, canine influenza, ear mites, ear infections, skin mites, mange (sarcoptic, demodectic or cheyletiella), cherry eye or any other non-life-threatening eye, skin, or tissue issues, allergies, undescended testicles, over or under bites, base narrow canines, teeth extractions, or dental work of any kind, herniations 1 cm or less and/or hernia repair, non-life-threatening bone or joint disorders such as but not limited to luxating patellas, and heart murmurs that are not life threatening. The Breeder cannot guarantee your puppy against any illness or opportunistic parasite brought on by stress of moving to the Buyer's home, or motion sickness brought on by being transported.  It is stressful for any puppy to leave its mother and littermates, and this stress can result in illnesses or opportunistic parasites such as: giardia, hypoglycemia (low sugar shock), coccidia (dormant in most live animals), kennel cough, etc... the Breeder does not guarantee the puppy to be free of worms as this is an ongoing process.  All puppies and their parents are treated regularly for worms according to our veterinarian's guidelines and continued worming treatments will become the Buyer's responsibility once the puppy is in their care. These are easily and economically treated and should they occur, THE BREEDER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES OR OTHER COSTS THE BUYER HAS INCURRED. 

While we at Pleasant Meadows will make a good faith effort to estimate the colour, and the size of the puppy based on past litters and size of the parents, we DO NOT and CANNOT guarantee size, colour, temperament, fur type, or non-shedding if the puppy is a hybrid breed. This guarantee also does NOT cover behavioral problems as training philosophies and environments vary amongst new owners. Temperament develops as the puppy grows and interacts with its new family and environment, and is based on the training the puppy receives from the new owner(s). Pleasant Meadows cannot regulate the training or socialization the puppy/dog receives once it is not in our care, and therefore cannot be responsible for any lack of training which results in unwanted behaviour.

By signing this purchase agreement, the Buyer agrees to provide their new puppy with adequate quality food, water, and shelter throughout the dog's life. At no time shall the said puppy be kept in a kennel or crate for extended and unreasonable periods of time, or left outside in extreme hot or cold weather. The Cavapoo, the Miniature/Moyen Poodle, and the Brittanypoo are indoor dogs and should never be housed outside and should only be kept in your home. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to properly house train their puppy, and teach their puppy to abide by a set of rules the Buyer chooses for their household, and to seek professional help if any training issues above the Buyer’s experience level arise. The Buyer also agrees to provide the said puppy with routine veterinary care from a licensed veterinarian and to keep the puppy/dog current on vaccines and dewormings as recommended by the Buyer’s personal vet.

We at Pleasant Meadows do our best to screen people to not only make sure that the Cavapoo, Miniature/Moyen Poodle, or the Brittanypoo is a good match for you and/or your family, but also to make sure that you are ready for the life-long commitment of raising a puppy and caring for a dog's daily needs. For any reason prior to pickup of your puppy, if we at Pleasant Meadows feel that your home would not be a suitable environment in which to raise a puppy (ie. neglectful, abusive, work schedule will not allow time for a dog, etc.), or we feel it is not in the puppy's best interest, for whatever reason we see fit, we -- Pleasant Meadows -- reserve the right to terminate the contract even after a deposit has been placed on a puppy and have no obligation to sell to the Buyer in question. If Pleasant Meadows determines for ANY REASON that the Buyer's home would not be suitable for one of our puppies, this would negate the agreement with the Buyer void and would constitute the return of the deposit on these terms ONLY, as it would be Pleasant Meadows terminating the contract.  If you choose to walk away on your own accord – the deposit is non-refundable.  We encourage everyone considering the purchase of a puppy or dog to ask questions, research, and make changes (if needed) to accommodate a dog in their life.

In the event that Pleasant Meadows should terminate the contract, return the Buyer’s deposit, and refuse to sell the Buyer a puppy -- both parties agree that they will not disparage or denigrate each other orally, electronically, or in writing. Should the Buyer make online derogatory claims -- the Buyer agrees to pay all fees to have negative remarks and claims removed from the world wide web. The Buyer shall also be responsible for any costs should the Breeder need to enforce removal, including necessary attorney fees, court costs, and fees to the online company to remove the complaint. Any pictures taken by the Breeder are of a professional quality and shall not be altered or shared by the Buyer without permission from Pleasant Meadows. The Buyer also does not have permission to use these photos to sell the puppy to a third party.

The Buyer is responsible to make all payments on or before 8 weeks of age.  If the Buyer is unable to complete the purchase by 8 weeks of age, the Buyer defaults and understands the said puppy on which the Buyer placed a deposit will no longer be available to the Buyer and the said puppy will be offered to the next family on the Breeder’s waiting list (if any).  By 8 weeks of age, the Buyer should be committed to the said puppy that is being held for them, and if the Buyer backs out last minute the original $100 placement fee and $500 deposit is non-refundable. Due to the extreme inconvenience directed at the Breeder, who needs to start the screening process all over again for a new family, the holding fee and any additional payments made by the Buyer will not be refunded until after the said puppy has been purchased/paid in full by a new prospective family.  The same also applies should the Buyer neglect to pick up the said puppy by 9 weeks of age and $20 per day boarding fee will be applied, and if not picked up by 10 weeks the Buyer will thereby forfeit all rights to the said puppy, and the original $100 placement fee and $500 deposit placed at birth will be retained by the Breeder.

If for any reason the Buyer should need to rehome their puppy/dog purchased from Pleasant Meadows, the puppy/dog must be returned to Pleasant Meadows at the Buyers expense, or we must be allowed to help in the rehoming process by choosing a person from our waiting lists to receive the puppy/dog.  As responsible breeders, we want to ensure that all of our puppies are placed in forever homes.  After screening each individual/family, we only sell our puppies under the assumption that a forever home will be provided.  Any rehoming or reselling of our puppies is not permitted.  If an unforeseen circumstance arises and the Buyer can no longer care for the puppy/dog, you must contact Pleasant Meadows for details.


THIS GUARANTEE APPLIES TO THE ORIGINAL BUYER ONLY, AND IS NOT TRANSFERABLE. THERE ARE NO OTHER GUARANTEES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED EXCEPT AS CONTAINED HEREIN. This agreement is made to protect both purchaser and seller.  We will do all we can to insure you receive a healthy and happy puppy.
