All sales are final and by written contract. Buyers have 72 hours from date of acquisition to have the pup examined by a veterinarian. If any problem is discovered at that time, a full refund of the purchase price (excluding any shipping costs) will be given upon return of the pup with a letter of explanation from the examining veterinarian.
At the time of breeding a $200 deposit will reserve a pup until the age of 8 weeks. Deposits are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and are acknowledged immediately, with follow-up upon the birth of a litter. Deposits apply in full to the purchase price. Deposits are refundable only if I am not able to satisfy your needs in a pup!
Payment in full is expected at the time of acquisition of the puppy. I do not accept personal checks. Payment must be made with a bank check, money order, or cash. I will retain the AKC registration application of the puppy until the bank check (if method of payment) clears, and I have the signed contract returned.
You may elect to fly to me, pick the puppy up, and fly home with it in a carry-on at 8 weeks, but not before. Otherwise, I ship puppies by air, after the age of 10 weeks. In the event that I ship by air alone (without its new owner), I will use a attempt to ship on a direct flight and a priority air cargo service if available. Payment for shipment costs will be COD. I will ship in an airline approved Vari-Kennel (In the appropriate size) provided by the owner in advance If the airline or the buyer requires a health certificate (most do), I bill the buyer at my cost.
When shipping a puppy, I will send the buyer two unsigned copies of my sales contract in advance. The buyer will sign both copies of the contract, and return them to Albannach Gordon Setters with payment in full, including any additional expenses. I will return one signed copy of the contract to the buyer, along with the AKC registration application for the pup.
