Puppy Contract & Limited Health Guarantee

The word “limited” is used because there are conditions that are very common to the French Bulldog that are not covered by this guarantee.
Before I committed to being a breeder of French Bulldogs, I spent years researching and finding out all the information about them that I could and after all of my research I decided I was willing to accept and assume all of the expense and medical risks associated with owning them.. I have made it my priority to only breed the healthiest and best quality dogs possible but that still does not mean I can eliminate all the common issues within these breeds. Our puppies have a one-year health guarantee, please keep in mind that a health guarantee is a not a promise that a genetic issue will never occur. It is a promise that tells you exactly what I plan to do for you if a issue arises. I try my best to health test my breeding stock, by doing regular vet visits; But just like with people sometimes two healthy adults bred together can produce a puppy that is not. Even if you do not plan to breed, as a pet owner you must be fully aware that despite our best efforts to produce only the healthiest puppies through selective breeding and long term evaluations that we cannot prevent all defects within these breeds from popping up. You as a Buyer must be fully prepared to endure the long term care and vet expenses that come with owning these wonderful and truly unique little dogs.”

Thank you for choosing OhciniAdorabulls, this Health Guarantee is put in place to ensure the buyer that they are receiving a healthy, purebred puppy, and to ensure the seller that the puppy is being placed in suitable home that will love and take care of the puppy forever.

This agreement is made, and hereby entered into, on _____________ by Matthew Landicini and Adrian Ohnemuller of OhciniAdorabulls, LLC
hereafter referred to as “Seller”, and_____________________________ hereafter referred to as the “Buyer”.

  1. The specific puppy being sold from this contract is eligible for Full AKC Registration. It is the buyer’s responsibility to submit all paperwork to register the puppy for AKC and pay all appropriate fees.

Buyer’s Initial: ______________

2.  Buyer declares that they have done their research on the breed they have chosen and are fully aware of the health risks associated with this breed as well as training and housing requirements.
Buyer understands that French bulldogs are extremely sensitive to heat and extreme cold and are meant to be INDOOR dogs only. All precautions should be taken to protect them during outings in hot or extreme cold weather. Any outside temperatures over 70 degrees, especially in humid climates, can be deadly to your French bulldog. Heat stroke can happen in MINUTES!
Buyer understands and is fully aware that NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY REASON other than those stated in this agreement.
Seller guarantees said puppy, until it turns ONE year old, is free from any LIFE THREATENING congenital defects related to the following conditions only:

1. Life threating heart defects (heart murmurs must be a grade 3 or higher).
​2. Neurological disorders.
​3. Liver shunts.
4. Luxatingpatellas (must be at least a grade 4 to warrant a replacement).
5. Severe hip dysplasia (must be confirmed by xray and be graded severe and requiring euthanasia or surgery. Mild/moderate dysplasia is not covered as it is impossible to determine if it is congenital or environmental. Environmental means through repeated trauma to the undeveloped joints through rough play, too much exercise, jumping on and off of furniture and decks, etc.).
6. Auto immune disease (We will only replace UN-VACCINATED dogs with this condition. Auto immune can be triggered by vaccines. Buyer must provide the Seller with a copy of ALL vet records within 24 hours of diagnoses to verify that no vaccines were given at any time while in your possession).
7. ***severe spinal abnormalities*** Most French and English bulldogs have at least one hemivertebrae, if not more. Replacements for spinal issues will be discussed on a case by case basis considering the quality of life of your dog, the opinion of your vet and whether surgery is necessary. (Please do not let your dog jump from high surfaces, as this can increase the chances of a ‘normal’ hemivertebrate becoming problematic). Hemi vertebrae found in routine xray that are not problematic will NOT be considered for replacement.
8. Any other LIFE THREATING CONGENITAL defects will be discussed on a case by case basis. Buyer understands that conditions not listed in this contract are not guaranteed for replacement.

All puppies will have a full health check prior to leaving the Seller.
Should this puppy be found to have a life threatening congenital defect, as listed above, by said puppy’s 1st birthday, the puppy may, upon a written and conclusive diagnosis containing the congenital defect and a description of the puppy in question from a veterinarian, be returned to the Seller for another puppy of equal value when one is available. Return shipping/transportation are the responsibility of the Buyer. Shipping costs/transportation for a replacement puppy is also the responsibility of the Buyer.
If the quality of life of said puppy is severely affected the Seller asks that the puppy be humanely euthanized by a veterinarian and that a written and conclusive diagnosis and a description of the puppy along with the registration papers be returned to the Seller before a replacement puppy will be offered. Shipping costs/transportation for a replacement puppy are the responsibility of the Buyer.

In the case of sudden/unexpected death a necropsy must be performed, at the Buyer’s expense, and a written and conclusive diagnosis stating that the cause of death is related to a congenital defect as listed above must be returned along with a copy of the necropsy report and the registration papers before a replacement puppy will be offered. Shipping costs/transportation for a replacement puppy are the responsibility of the Buyer.
Buyer understands and agrees that the Seller is not responsible for any veterinary medical expenses incurred by the Buyer once said puppy has left possession of the Seller.
Seller reserves the right to verify any information provided by the Buyer with the Buyer’s vet.
Buyer understands that the Seller makes no guarantee that they will be able to show or breed the puppy as an adult regardless of show or breeding potentials visually perceived as a puppy. We do our best to produce dogs that are showable and breedable, but no one can guarantee the outcome of any puppy.
If said puppy that Buyer has reserved should become ill, injured or die prior to leaving the Seller the Buyer will be offered a full refund of their deposit OR they may transfer their deposit to a future litter or another puppy if one is available. If Buyer chooses to transfer their deposit it will become non-refundable again except for reasons listed in this agreement.  At the expense of the Buyer, this puppy should be examined by a veterinarian within 48 hours of possession to VALIDATE the Health Guarantee. Proof of the Health Exam (a receipt for office exam will suffice) from the Buyer’s veterinarian dated no more than 48 hours from the date said puppy left the Seller’s possession MUST be emailed to the Seller immediately following the exam or the Guarantee is VOID. If a copy of the Health Exam is not received within 14 days of the date said puppy left the Seller’s possession this Health Guarantee is VOID.
Should said puppy be found to be in ill health during the veterinarian exam, the cause of which is clearly attributable to the Seller, the puppy may, upon a written and conclusive diagnosis and a description of the puppy in question from a veterinarian, be returned to the Seller for another puppy of equal value when one is available. Buyer understands that once the puppy leaves the Seller’s possession there are some common conditions that can affect puppies that are NOT COVERED under this guarantee. Coccidiosis (Coccidia), giardia, and kennel cough (upper respiratory) are not covered in this contract, all of which can be common in puppies and neither are life threatening and are easily treated. Seller HIGHLY recommends you (the Buyer) do not place your puppy on the ground in public places until their immune system is better developed after 18 weeks of age. We also HIGHLY recommend you do NOT visit dog parks/doggie day cares. 
These places are breeding grounds for disease and illness even for vaccinated adult dogs! 
Buyer understands that there MUST BE A CONCLUSIVE DIAGNOSIS in writing from the Buyer’s veterinarian before a replacement puppy will be offered for any congenital defect or condition listed in this contract. A speculative or inconclusive diagnosis WILL NOT warrant a replacement puppy from the Seller. No Exceptions!

If the Buyer is owed a replacement they must take their replacement within 12 months from the time the replacement was warranted. After 12 months the Buyer forfeits their right to a replacement.


Buyer agrees to authorize the release of said puppy’s medical records to the Seller and the Seller’s veterinarian for the purpose of review should a replacement puppy be requested or potentially warranted within 72 hours of notifying the Seller of a problem.​​ Failure to provide all medical records regarding said puppy will VOID Buyer’s right to a replacement.


If we, the Seller, find out that we were lied to in any way in regards to the purchase of said puppy BEFORE it leaves our possession the Buyer will forfeit any monies paid to the Seller and we will no longer do business with you. Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy! Buyer agrees to be 100% truthful in all regards of the purchase of this puppy. Including, if the puppy is being purchased as a “gift” for someone else. This contract is non-transferable and applies ONLY to the original party listed in this contract as “Buyer.”

Any violation of the terms of this Contract will VOID the Guarantee.
