Right of First Refusal

Buyer’s Initials________ Buyer agrees to carry Pet Medical Insurance for the next 26 months – to align with return policy or date in which health guarantee has expired]. This is to be activated no later than when the pet goes home and continued until [date until which owner can return pet to breeder or date in which health guarantee has expired]. If for any reason the owner cannot continue this insurance, the Seller will be notified. If the buyer chooses not to continue this insurance, then if there are any health issues with the puppy/dog the buyer cannot come back to the seller for any vet bills of any kind. After many years of breeding this wonderful breed of Golden Retrievers we have seen so many injuries happen, or illnesses come up after the puppy/dog goes home. With the rising cost of vet charges and bills associated with owning a puppy this insurance could come in very handy if something does happen or arises. Golden Retrievers are so predisposed to so many illnesses and diseases.
