Please Read Carefully,
I understand that, as with the purchase of any animal, whilst all reasonable care has been taken by Stafford Rescue to identify and advise me of any medical and behavioural conditions affecting the dog, it is impossible for Stafford Rescue, as a small organisation, to screen for absolutely all conditions and it is impossible for Stafford Rescue to predict the future behaviour of any animal.
I am over 21 years of age.
I have not been found guilty of any offence involving cruelty to an animal and am not currently aware of being the subject of an RSPCA investigation.
I have not been convicted for cruelty to animals and I am not knowingly the subject of an RSPCA investigation.
The dog is not being purchased as a commercial guard dog.
The animal is not being purchased as a present for another person without their knowledge.
The dog will not be used for hunting or fighting.
I understand that the purchase is in accord with the conditions of sale under the Domestic (Feral and Nuisance) Animals Act 1994 and the following conditions apply:
Should I find the animal unacceptable because of health or other reasons and request a refund or replacement, my claim must be supported by a statement from an independent veterinarian within ten days of purchase.
If I return the animal within fourteen days for any reason I will receive a refund of 75% of the total purchase price.
All other treatment, including vaccinations, regular worming and flea treatments after purchase, will be at my cost.
I undertake to provide all food, water, shelter and veterinarian treatment for the life of the animal.
I undertake that the animal will not be used for experimental or research purposes of any description, and that I am not a dealer or agent of a dealer.
If I do not wish to retain my dog any longer for any reason whatsoever, I will offer to return my dog to Stafford Rescue, who will, at its option, accept the return of the dog.

I, the purchaser of the animal, as detailed herein, hereby agree and declare to accept the animal with all faults, blemishes and imperfections (if any) and I hereby exonerate the of Stafford Rescue Victoria from any responsibility in respect to the animal.
