Puppy Sales Agreement
Be advised that the Native American
Indian Dog (NAID) is a very social animal and almost all the time needs
the companionship of another dog or someone home at all times. If you
cannot have more than one dog or have someone home all the time, the
NAID may not be the right breed of dog for you.
All NAID’s will be fed and treated humanely with proper
veterinarian care by their new owners. No NAID is sold as a total house
dog or an apartment dog. There must be a suitable containment area for
the animal to be able to run and play off leash at will. No NAID may be
chained to a stationary object (i.e. a tree) but can be allowed to run
on a cable system.
Adding a puppy to your home is
just like bringing a baby into your family. The puppy will require a
good deal of time, attention and training to help them become the loving
family member you desire.
The NAID is a highly intuitive breed and will sense the presence of any
negative feelings or energies in the household, whether directed toward
the dog or other family members. This can lead to training and
behavioral issues. Therefore, all members of the household must want
this puppy and be committed to its training. Formal obedience classes
are highly recommended. Terra Pines cannot be responsible for behavioral
or socialization problems resulting from inconsistent, improper or lack
A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold the NAID pup
you prefer. Deposit must be received within 7 days of selecting your pup
or the pup will be offered to the next person on the waiting list. The
remaining balance must be paid on or before the date the puppy is picked
up or delivered to you.
Terra Pines does not allow pups to be shipped alone under any
circumstances. Therefore, you must be able to pick up your pup in person
by one of the following methods:
Driving to our facility.

Due to the highly loyal and social nature of the NAID, it is in
the pups and your family’s best interest to pick up your new puppy as
soon as possible. The NAID mothers have fully weaned their puppies by
approximately 6 weeks of age and the pups must begin bonding with their
new owners as soon as possible.
sold will be free from internal and external parasites and have at least
the first puppy vaccination administered before leaving Terra Pines. A
certified veterinarian health check will accompany all Terra Pines pups.
Terra Pines is not responsible for any illnesses, injuries or a disease
incurred after the pup leaves Terra Pines premises.
Refunds are only given in the rare case of a genetic defect that
occurs up to two years of age.
If a genetic defect is detected prior to age 2, two written
diagnoses from two different practicing veterinarians must be sent to
Terra Pines. Based on the veterinarian recommendation one of two
scenarios may occur:
If recommended by the veterinarians, the owner will pay for the pup to
be euthanised. Upon proof of the procedure, Terra Pines will then
provide the customer’s choice of either a replacement pup from the next
litter born or a refund of the original cost of the puppy.
If the veterinarian states that the puppy can still have an excellent
quality of life (i.e. free from pain) and the owner agrees to provide
any care necessary to maintain such quality of life, the owner may
choose to keep the puppy. Upon receipt of a statement from the
veterinarian outlining the care necessary for the puppy and a written
agreement from the owner to provide such care, Terra Pines will refund
one half of the purchase price of the puppy.
All puppies sold must be spayed or neutered by 10 months of age.
Terra Pines will refund the cost of spay or neuter up to $100 per puppy
upon receipt of proof that the procedure was completed.
This document is legal and binding. Failure to comply with any
portion of this agreement will result in the purchaser whose signature
appears below paying all legal, court and travel costs incurred if the
owner must be pursued for negligence in this legal contract.
This document must be signed, dated and returned to Terra Pines
when the original $100.00 non-refundable deposit is made.
