Such offer of Right of First Refusal will be given to Seller in writing, via certified mail. The Seller shall have five (5) working days after receipt of written offer to exercise this option. Any transfer back to the Seller shall be accompanied with the appropriate FCI registration papers properly endorsed by Buyer. (In the event that emergency circumstances require immediate relocation of Puppy, it can be returned to Seller immediately, and Seller will thereafter handle the transfer as appropriate.)

     c) Buyer will not sell, give or otherwise transfer Puppy without first giving Seller Right of First Refusal (9-b above). Under NO circumstances shall Puppy be taken to an animal shelter, humane society, or released to a Rescue group.

     d) Should Buyer choose to break any of the covenants of this Agreement, the remainder of the Agreement will be considered null and void, Seller will have the right to repossess Puppy and that Buyer will be liable for any costs involved in that repossession.

     e) All dogs/puppies bred or sold by Cabeza Grande Kennels receive a microchip. This microchip is permanently registered to Jennifer Chandler/Cabeza Grande Kennels with the new owner as a secondary contact. Any alteration to the chip or the information linked to the chip, including addition of a new chip into the animal, will void your guarantee.

11. LIQUIDATED DAMAGES

     a) Seller has endeavored for many years to protect the breed and her dogs from improper ownership and treatment. If Buyer breaches Right of First Refusal (9-b) or otherwise improperly surrenders Puppy to another party (9-c), Buyer will pay liquidated damages to Seller of $2000.

     b) The reputation of Seller's kennel is the result of many years of work and professional experience, and inappropriate breeding of a bitch or dog of her kennel damages the reputation and value of her kennel name and of other litters. If Puppy has been sold as Pet quality (and has not self-corrected) and is to be spayed or neutered, intentional or negligent breeding of such Puppy is detrimental to the breed and to Seller's kennel name. Acknowledging the intrinsic value of Seller's kennel name and the difficulty of precise damage calculations for breach of the contract, Buyer agrees to pay Seller $2000 per puppy (alive or dead) born as a result of any breeding outside the parameters of this contract.
