This is our Policies & Requirements form that we stand by. Every customer will receive one with their deposit.
It is recommended that the buyer have the puppy examined by a veterinarian during the first 72 hrs, following travel / and or pick-up from “Dutton Beagles", the cost of this veterinarian visit and any other veterinarian visit in the future, plus any procedures or treatment done by the buyer’s veterinarian for said puppy, will be the responsibility of the buyer for the life of said puppy. There are no guarantees made as to the size, color, conformation, temperament or breeding ability of said puppy. Puppies are not guaranteed to win any titles whether they are show or pet quality. We offer a 5 year health guarantee for any life threating genetic illness due to our breeding. In the case of a genetic/ hereditary defect being discovered and is to such an extent that it makes the puppy unsuitable as a pet or death accrues, we will give the buyer a credit in the value of what the buyer paid for their puppy, at that time we will get the buyer on the Puppy Reserve List for the next available litter, or if buyer is wanting a refund, Dutton Beagles has 30 days to refund the purchase price that owner paid. Shipping for said puppy will not be covered, that is up to the owner. We will need to receive signed documentation of the prognosis from a licensed veterinarian, and the veterinarian must state on signed documentation that said puppy’s prognosis is to such an extent that it makes the puppy unsuitable as a pet, or death accrued, to receive credit or refund. “Dutton Beagles” is not responsible for any of the incurred Veterinary bills due to your puppy's illness, it is also agreed that if legal proceedings would ever be needed, the proceedings would be held in the jurisdiction of Kootenai County, Idaho.
Our goal is to make sure all of our beagles are with a qualified and loving family. The owners of any beagle bought from “Dutton Beagles” has the responsibility to inform “Dutton Beagles” that their beagle has been placed in a new home. We realize there may be some reason for you to part with your beagle and if your only option is to take him or her to the Humane Society, then we want to help and do our best to find said beagle a wonderful home. In the case that both parties are unsuccessful in finding said beagle a new home in a reasonable time then we request the said puppy be brought back to us. There will be no refund of any amount when your beagle is brought back to “Dutton Beagles”. (There is a two week grace period from purchase date of said puppy, that you may receive a discounted refund of 50% of the original purchase price.)
Deposits are accepted (U.S. funds only) to hold a position in a litter, or an upcoming litter, in the amount of $500.00 per puppy. Your deposit is only refundable if you are on the list for an upcoming litter, and the puppy you wanted wasn’t born, or your puppy that you picked has become sick / injured or dies before you take him/her home from “Dutton Beagles”, your deposit will be refunded at this time, or you can choose to wait for a litter at a later date. Prospective buyers agree and are under this contract when deposit is received.
“Dutton Beagles” will have all vaccinations required for your puppy when he/she is picked up from us. Your puppy will be de-wormed as many times as necessary for his/her age, and a check up at the veterinarian will also be provided, prior to you receiving your puppy.
