Breeder will provide paperwork when puppy is picked up. 

Paperwork must be signed at time when buyer picks up the dog. 

Unless agreed beforehand the breeder will submit registration paperwork to ASCA/AKC once breeder and buyer agree on a registered name for the puppy (registration fees are included in puppy price). If the buyer does not have a ASCA membership the breeder will pay for the buyer to become a "Service" member when puppies registration paperwork is submitted. If buyer wishes to be a "full member" they are responsible for additional fee and it is due when signing all paperwork at pick up. 

If puppy is purchased with full registration and buyer wishes to submit AKC/ASCA paperwork no fees will be credited/removed from puppy purchase price. 

We understand that not all breeders submit ASCA/AKC paperwork for buyers but we have found that many buyers who purchase "Pet" puppies normally do not submit paperwork. By us submitting the registration paperwork is our way of supporting registries. 

Please understand this is just a "basic draft" of our contract. 
Each puppy is sold individually and our contract can be revised for each situation.
