Puppy Deposit Contract
We at Lone Star Elite K9 Kennels take deposits on future litters, this contract will outline the deposit procedure. All deposits are Non Refundable. It takes time and effort to select the proper home for our puppies and deposits ensure our time is not wasted. Your deposit will stay on the books indefinitely, if you are unable to pay the remaining balance you will not loose it.If something were to happen, a puppy not make it because nothing is guaranteed you will get the next available spot open in order of your deposit. We at times have spots come open due to others moving to a future breeding, in that case you will be notified if your name is next in line. If you choose to wait to get a puppy from a future breeding your deposit will then transfer to a future litter. When you inform us your ready for your puppy your remaining balance is due at the puppies 8th week when their ready for pick up. If we have made several attempts to contact you and still haven't received a response we will go to the next person in line on the waiting list. I will attempt to contact everyone the 7th week to schedule puppy pick up day if something comes up and we have not heard from you after days of unanswered calls and texts we will assume you are passing on the spot for a puppy on that litter and you can contact us in the future when you are ready. Once again there will be no cash refund of any kind. As with all litters there is a certain amount of uncertainty. If the female does not take or we loose some puppies we will provide a puppy from another litter in a timely manner. We strive for high quality and customer service so exceptions may be given on a case to case basis.

Owner Awareness Contract
I am fully aware of the following pertaining my puppy I purchased from LoneStarEliteK9:
The Belgian Malinois is an High Drive & High Energy breed that require lots of time, patience,socialization,guidance and company.
This is NOT the breed to lock in a crate all day,puppies bladders are not strong enough to prevent accidents for 2 + hours in a crate.
They should have access to water,potty area & age appropriate toys or they will become bored and destructive anytime you leave the house.
This is a breed that should be socialized from a puppy on wards,and in order for the puppy to behave around new people they should be included in work/family activities, socialization is extremely important.
This is a vocal and protective breed, if not socialized properly will become reserved towards strangers.Socialization helps ensure that your Malinois puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.
The Malinois is a mouthy breed,they are stimulated easily(prey drive) and will exhibit herding behavior such as chasing anything that moves & grabbing anything they can reach, it is not aggression it’s drive. It is your responsibility as the puppies owner to correct & direct any unwanted behavior.
The Malinois does better when included with everyday family activities and require plenty of exercise whether its walking/running/hiking with you, frisbee,swimming,training,or going to work with you.If not kept entertained this breed will find a way to entertain themselves such as being destructive.
Bring your puppy around anyone you want them to get used to including animals,introduce slowly and Do Not leave your puppy un supervised,especially around small children or other animals.
You should NEVER attempt to man handle your dog,scold or dominate this will only agitate the puppy and you will have behavioral problems later on.
Do not bring puppy anywhere until they have received ALL of their vaccinations. We DO NOT warranty communicable diseases. Your puppies immune system weakens when transferred to a new environment, it is very easy for them to pick up Parvo-virus,Corona-virus,intestinal parasites such as Giardiasis and Coccidiosis by coming in contact with another animals infected poop even drinking water,it is your responsibility to be cautious.
We will Always take back a puppy from our breeding program in any situation.I understand there will be no cash refund of any kind and my puppy is to be returned with its original paperwork.
I agree and understand all the terms and conditions to this contract.
