What you should receive from the breeder when you pick up your pup:


1. The AKC Puppy Registration application or AKC registration papers with signed transfer if the breeder has already registered the pups.

2. You should receive a copy of the puppy's pedigree. 

3.  A list of the vaccinations which the puppy has received and the veterinarian who has given them.

Some breeders vaccinate their own puppies, but you should receive a document stating when the vaccinations were given and which pharmaceuticals were used. In addition, you should receive a document stating when and if the puppies were wormed and which medications were given. If the puppies were examined by a veterinarian, there should be a certificate of health provided by the examining doctor.

4. The breeder should recommend that you take the puppy to a veterinarian of your choice within a specific time. Usually 2-7 days from the time of purchase is considered reasonable. If the puppy, upon examination at that time, is found to be ill or with some visible defect the breeder should be willing to take the puppy back.  Most breeders will include this in your purchase contract.  Some states have specific deadlines also.

5. You should receive a guarantee that the puppy is healthy and free of known defects at the time of purchase.  This is required in many states and should also be included in your purchase contract. 

6. The breeder should state in writing that he or she will take the puppy back if the buyer is unable to keep it, or that they will do their utmost to place the puppy in another home within a reasonable time.
