Why have a contract when you buy/sell a puppy?

For the Purchaser, a good contract is an indication that the Breeder has done his homework and cares about the dogs he breeds. The contract should help you understand what the Breeder expects from you and what you can expect from the Breeder for the lifetime of your dog. For the Breeder, it protects him from people who might mistreat or misuse the puppy. Breeders that do not have contracts are in fact promising you nothing, likely won’t provide any support when you need it and likely have not done the research on health certification that a good breeder should.
