ARIZONA SUNRISE SHIH TZUS AND POOS

Application/Questionnaire

Before filling out the application please read through the Program at a Glance, the securing puppy/ Interest list details and the legally binding Contract under the menu tab to make sure I'm the right breeder for you to work with. Please email me the answers to all the questions at deesshihpoos@gmail.com. Completing the application doesn't guarantee a puppy. I am sorry I am so particular and ask so many personal questions. I couldn't do the job I'm doing with a clear conscience if I weren't as picky as I am. Think about it, I am responsible for how the puppy spends the next 10-20 years of his/her life. One mistake on my part could end in tragedy. What I pledge is if you're matched with one of my puppies, I will be there for unconditional and unsurpassed support for the rest of your puppies life!

30. Are you in compliance with the spay/neuter terms that follow?_____________Permanent ownership of puppy and genetic/health guarantee are based upon compliance with spay/neuter agreement.  Puppies are being sold on a strict legally binding contract. Breeder has the right to  spay/neuter puppies before sending home if she chooses to do so. If puppies aren't spayed/neutered when sold the new owner is responsible for making sure the procedure is completed on time. Females are to be spayed by 6 months. Males must be neutered by 8 months. Breeder must receive written proof via email of spay/neuter from the licensed veterinarian that performed the procedure in the form of a certificate no later than 2 weeks after the 6 month mark for a female and no later than 2 weeks after the 8 month mark for a male. Breeder must also be given permission to call the vet clinic to confirm spay/neuter was completed on time. If breeder doesn't receive the results or cannot confirm the procedure was completed, puppy will be returned to breeder without a refund.  A $5000 fine will be charged for breaching the contract and legal action will be taken. Furthermore, if the dog purchased from breeder produces a litter, owner will be fined $3000 per puppy and will still need to give up rights to the dog and any remaining offspring or progeny without compensation. Finally, microchip will not be transferred into owners name until proof of spay/neuter is provided. (On another note, I am fair. I am just looking out for the puppies. If you need an extra week or so because of special circumstances contact me and we will work out a resolution.)
